You must save the form letter you get from your SR. It will have important information on it including the password so you can download the parking pass when it's time to go to PIR. Even if you rent a vehicle to drive to PIR from your hotel, you will need the parking pass. SAVE THAT FORM LETTER!

That is all...stand down!

Form letter follows the box... Give it another week at least.
Comment by Eddie yesterday

OK Guys, i have another "situation" I need some advice about. My son left Nashville 7-14-14 for RTC. I received a call Friday 7/18/14, from FEDEX stating that they had a package for me, but the address wasn't legible so they either needed me to confirm my address or I could come to the office and retrieve it. Turns out it was my sons belongings/"kid in a box". The address wasn't that bad considering the stress these young men and women are under when they write it. My concern is about his "Form Letter"; how long should I wait before I try to track it down, and if I don't receive it who should i contact?

i am a happy man today got a phone call from my son we got to talk for about 30 to 45 mins and it was what i needed and he said it isnt as hard just the missing home he said he actually loves it up there and is actually kind of having fun but we both cant wait to see eachother

Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on Sunday

900-series divisions are performing divisions: band, choir, flags, and drill and as a result not only have to learn their "normal" Navy topics but have rehearsals and practice as well.
