    Formal Letter from BC

    Posted by jimrk on August 21, 2014 at 2:03pm 5 Comments

    My son left for BC on August 12th.  We received his box within the first few days however, as of today, we have yet to receive the Formal Letter indicating his address, list of attendees for graduation and password to get on the base. My wife is making herself sick worrying why we haven't received the letter when others that left the same day have. She is worried it got lost in the mail.  Any suggestions??? 



    After PIR and liberty

    Posted by Timothy D. Eastman on August 17, 2014 at 2:05pm 0 Comments

    When PIR is done and they call Liberty Call Liberty Call the sailors get liberty.  Many people met their sailor at NEX on the RTC. They have to stay in their uniform during Liberty and have to be back by 7:00 or 8:00 PM.  You return them to the OHIO road gate on Berkley.  They will have that gate open and will let you drive in to drop them off and say bye. 

    When you park for PIR you use Illinois entry which is on the East side of the RTC. 

    If your sailor is leaving for school…


    Navy Lodges

    I just got back from PIR and I hope I can help folks with what I learned. 

    If you plan to stay at the Navy Lodge you do not have to be in the military yourself.  If you are on the list for the PIR for your sailor they will allow you to stay there. 

    If they do not have room they may put you in touch with the Gateway Inn which is on-base.  The Gateway is on the NTC base which is separate from the RTC base. They will give you a sheet to fill out to get a temporary security pass to…


    Ship 12 Division 304, PIR 09/26/2014

    Posted by John Ward on August 16, 2014 at 6:03pm 5 Comments

    I just received a call from my daughter. It was a heart wrenching call, it is the call I expected and I have heard other parents say they get. It makes it hard not to fly there and get them. I know that would be the worst thing to do.

    She was crying a little and I could hear the anger about something going on that she was not saying.

    At this time she passed everything they have tested her on but the run, her boots were not quite right so they hurt her feet and made it hard to…

    It says graduation 09/26/2014.

    So glad to see this scheduled but kind of surprised too! they only started on 08/05/2014.

    My daughter called said it was really tough but she was working hard to stay in good spirits.

    I am sure she will be okay and get everyting she needs before graduation.

    Still working on getting the info she needs. wish they would have done a better job when she went in for her initial security…

    Thanks so much for this site. I have been researching information since the day Colten left for boot camp. This site has it all in one place, in addition to some very friendly support.
