We just got back from PIR.  What a wonderful experience!  I highly recommend the Navy Lodge. It is a clean, basic place to stay. One great idea was that several people decorated the door of their hotel room.  Very good value for the price. We  upgraded our room to one which included a small kitchenette. It was on the 2nd floor & had a vaulted ceiling.  There was also breakfast in the morning. They have it out at 5:30 am on Friday to accommodate those going to PIR.  The sailors had to go back earlier than we expected because nearly all 979 (!!!) of them were flying out on Saturday.  Our sailor had to be back by 8pm, which really means 7 pm because they have to walk a distance to get back to their ship.  That being said, you will need to eat around 5:00 so they can get back.  We ate at Lovell's owned by Capt. James Lovell of Apollo 13 fame. It was a very nice restaurant & your sailor will eat for free, as is the case most places.  We opted to have Sarge's taxi service drive us to/from PIR & it was great to avoid the hassle of traffic/parking/directions. The cost was ~ $12 for 4 people each way (+ tip).  Good seats were taken early & it took a LONG time to get into the hall for PIR (standing in 0 degree weather!). Another thing is to have your sailor order the pictures so you don't have to go to the NEX at the RTC to order them after PIR. (Can you imagine waiting in line with 900 families???) Our son ordered his ahead. They have them by PIR, so your sailor can get them from his ship compartment if they are already ordered & paid for.  One thing we didn't know, which wasn't that important to us, since our sailor is attending A school an hour from our house, is that you can meet them at the airport (they leave the RTC in the very early hours of Saturday) to go to the airport. You can go with him to the gate or just hang out. If you aren't going to see your sailor for a while after PIR, I would definitely do this. You can give your sailor their cell phone at the airport & also their computer/tablet.  If it's anything bigger than that, I'd mail it. They have plenty to carry with all their clothing in their duffel bag & their backpack.  Best of luck to all SR's & families!

Is anyone from St Louis?

SaElaVie10, join PIR 02/07/2014 TG 13 to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. Divisions 085 and 086 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 together, so look for others with loved ones in either division.  There is a discussion within that group for the two divisions. I left additional info for you on your My Page.

Hello!  Looking to connect with felllow milso from my husband's division!  His PIR is 2/7/14 and is ship 03/division 086. He says they're a push division of 100 SR's!

How many got phone calls from their SR in 13/079? If so, did they say that would be their last call before the "i'm a sailor" call?
