I have a nephew in Div 072. I am a proud mom of a Navy Nuc (he PIR'd last December). Would like to keep up with my nephew's PIR group this time around.
My nephew is in Div 072, Ship 12. I would love to keep up with the group as well!
I'm the Proud Mom of a Navy Recruit, Ship 12, Div 074!!
My SR is Div 073. Incredibly proud, but miss him terribly.
Did anyone get a call for Christmas? Recruiter said I'd get one, but nothing :(
Just got news today from my nuke. Ship 03 Div 072. PIR 2/17/12.
Ours too! Does anyone know any good online deals for airfare?
I checked with expedia.com on the whole flight, hotel, and rental car. It was a little cheaper going that route than trying to do each thing seperately but I did get a brochure with my sons first letter that had hotels, flights, and rental cars with a discount. I haven't checked on that yet.
There's a $79 special for navy families at the Ramada inn 3 miles from the base. That's where we just booked.
I think Ramada is where they have the Meet & Greet the night before PIR. It did not look like the greatest hotel, but we didn't stay there. It is pretty old. The Meet & Greet was very nice though so make sure you go. You don't have to stay there to go to it.
My son is in Ship 03 Div072. Trying to make arrangements for PIR. Know nothing about this area and what is safe.Not sure about driving in Chicago. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Not real sure about this area either. Maybe there is a group on here that has already been through PIR in the Great Lakes and can give us some advise. If I find anything I will post it here and please do the same if you find something out.
