I got the scripted "didn't pass PFA" call last night and she is being moved from her division. She was,so upset and there was nothing I could do for her but tell her to hang in there she will get it. I wanted so bad to just crawl through the phone and hug her.

PIR 02/05/2016 06/091- Still no word.

Haven't heard from my recruit yet. He was so afraid of not making time on the running part of the test. I saw in one of the posts that 7 were pushed back. I haven't received a call stating he failed either, but thinking he may have been one of those 7. If by chance he doesn't get to graduate, will he get weekend liberty to visit with family? Thanks.

New to this and wanting info

My son arrived at the Great Lakes boot camp on 1-25-16. We received his box but no letter with info regarding the address to send letters to him and the date of PIR.  Just wanting to know what to expect.  Thanks for anyone that answers.

He is off...

My son left Tuesday for Boot Camp.  I got to talk to him several times before he arrived at the training center, and then I got my last call at 11:30 that night.  I sure do miss him.  The countdown has begun in our household for his graduation.  I can't wait to see him again.  I am so stinkin' proud of that boy I could just burst.

Transfer within a ship

I was wondering if a sailor can transfer within a ship to a different area.  My son went to school for one thing and was placed in area of the ship he was never trained in.  He is getting picked on badly because he doesn't know what he is doing.  He is afraid to speak up due to retaliation.  He said he doesn't know how much more he can take and has talked about others committing suicide due to this issue.  Is there anyone that has knowledge of what he can do to get out of this situation?

Mom of married recruit

This is the first blog I have ever written so bear with me, please.

Our son has just entered boot camp, leaving a wife and son.

What is my role as the mother of the recruit in respect to writing letters, sending stamps & paperl etc. as it relates to my DIL, his wife?

I recognize that we are one step removed from the direct communication as his priority is his wife, but I was wondering if there is any etiquette for this situation that would help me do it…

PIR 01-22-16

My daughter graduates boot camp Friday. She is asking me to bring several items when I come up for PIR. The directions say she can't return to base with anything extra. However, her A school is on base. She will move buildings right after graduation, before she leaves on Liberty. Some insight on what she can take back on base after Liberty would be greatly appreciated! Of course, her phone tops the list of items to bring!
