My son leaves for BC next week and he was talking to us about being in a 900 division. He sang in the top choir in high school, received 1s at state and even had a music scholarship for a small college before he changed his mind and decided to go into the navy. Can anyone tell me how SR gets into a 900 division and are there any benefits to it. Seems like it would just add more stress to an already stressful situation. Sorry for being so long winded.

I was even more excited to hear him tell me that he had made the right choice to go Navy! He searched out our other branches and chose the U.S. NAVY! I am truly a proud mom! :)

Received our call yesterday from our SR. (Ship 2 Division 950)...I was so excited! And even more pleased to hear that he's ok. He is on the Drill Team and is Master at Arms. He understands that he will not participate in his PIR, but will be on the floor and will participate in the graduation...I'm such a proud and happy mom!

I know I might be a little late posting about being not being able to see your SR out on the floor. My son was in the 900 his PIR was 3/28/14. He told me that is a volunteer division. It is an honor to be a part of this division.  Although it was great to watch him perform for the time that he did, it was far outweighed by that first hug. I 100% agree with NavyMom93, the hardest part is putting them on that plane. So from one Navy mom to another, look forward to enjoying PIR and that awesome first hug. The ceremony is amazing and that hug is even better. You can get through this time apart by holding on to that and with the support of other Navy moms.

OK Thank You very much, ambermc.  Cause I went nuts when I thought it was JUST for musically inclined people. He was NEVER in band or NEVER played an instrument.  Had heard there were drills, and rifles, and flags, and even body catchers. lol.  Now I cannot wait to find out.  Will let you know hopefully soon.  Thanks again. This stuff's new to me now that he's fully in.

Austins mom, my understanding is that MUs (who will be musicians in the Navy) automatically get in the 900 division, and others volunteer or are selected.  When my boyfriend arrived, they asked which were MUs, and they were put in 900.  He plays trumpet.  As a musician, he practices with the band a few hours on Saturday, which is priceless because he usually practices hours daily. Better some than none!

He may be carrying a state flag at PIR, or in drill team as you suspect, or even doing a behind-the-scenes job.  Let us know when you find out! :)

I guess I SHOULD ask this, what constitutes them being IN the 900 div, IF they ARE selected for it? Or CAN they choose?

Comment by Austins mom on Sunday

just found at last friday my son is in a 900 div. I don't know if he was picked or he just volunteered. Gotta ask that question now when I hear from him or write it in a letter. So what's everybody elses kid doing in that div? I heard there's lots of jobs in this  div. My common sense thinking, he could doing rifles since that's his favorite and knows his way around guns. I STILL have not heard from my son yet as its to soon since he just went in 9/9.  And anyone know how its going with you're all's kid? I'm SOOOO dying to know what his job is.  I know he did fairly well on his asvab scores and he he lifted weights alot before he went in. So he's in great shape.  I was told that could've been why he's there in 900 div. I'm still waiting on his first form letter for an address. What can anyone tell me about 900 div and what YOUR kid is or has been doing.
