Thanks Up&Down! I am SO looking forward to PIR! I don't know a lot about BM rating but it sounds like a lot of long hard hours! But, on a ship that's not going out to sea I don't know what my son will be doing...looked at the ship's website and it looks like a lot of PR type work...community outreach and ceremonial.
It's great to hear new moms on this page. My son is part of a detachment and is a BM....not sure if there are different jobs for him versus being a crew member on a particular ship.
Congratulations to your son Jessie!
I advise all moms to go to your son or daughter's PIR. Believe me it is an amazing ceremony!!!!
My son came back from his first deployment in February and is out again!!!!
Always be careful new moms what you say on Navy For Moms. Don't reveal your name, sailor's name etc.
My son is in just called...he was selected to be a BM on the USS Constitution!! I am beyond excited and proud!! He will be in Boston for two years (same coast as me!!) and will hopefully have some rank before going on deployment. Can't believe how well the Navy suits him. He's even loving boot camp!
My son's PIR was 9-12-14. He is a boatswains mate. He is currently stationed in Williamsburg VA as a Navy Cargo Handling Battalion One. He has been moved to the same division but as a trainer. He is also working on getting all of (licenses/permits).
Hi Jessie and Up&Down! I noticed someone posted in this page, and thought I would just give you a little info. My son's PIR was Aug 16, 2013, and he is currently stationed at Navy Cargo Handling Battalion One in Norfolk VA after a year of bouncing around and being caught in a paper trail of government shutdown. He enjoys what he is doing, and he has gone on two "dets" (detachments) so far, meaning he has travelled to another location to load/unload a ship. He's working on getting all of his (licenses/permits) for crane operator now. You can see the equipment he works with if you go the the NCHB-1 facebook page.
I tried that once but it didn't catch. I'm actually not thrilled about the job is your sailor male or female and how do they like their job? Sounds like long hard hours with little reward.
The sailor of the mom who started this group might be out of the Navy already.
So Jessie....it's up to you & me to get this party started!!!!
It's a quiet group, my son is still in Boot Camp so I don't have a lot to contribute but I was looking forward to hearing about other sailors in this job. He will PIR on 6/5.
moms please reach out here so we can become active on this page again!!!!
Hello!!!! I was wondering if we can get this group active again!!!
Any moms out there with a Sailor on the Anchorage LPD23 or even the Essex?
