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!

We just got the form letter for our son Will.  He is scheduled for PIR on Sept. 12.  Does anyone have any suggestion on lodging that will be convenient to the base at Great Lakes?   Thanks!

Eddie I never received my form letter and was a nervous wreck about it. As long as you have his ship # and division #, his PIR date you should be fine. Next chance you get to talk to your SR ask him to let you know when he mailed it and get the password for the gate pass. My son was up for almost 21 hours and said he mailed it to me but he was so tired and as you stated the stress of it all he did not remember what address he mailed it too. It never went to his dads or grandmother's house either. Good luck and I hope this helps. Hopefully you will receive it soon.  Best of luck to your future Sailor.

Blessing to you and all our Sailors/SR's

Just got the first letter from my SR he said he is missing home, but is enjoying the learning new things and said he passed his first physical testing run with time of 10:47 and he wasn't even trying hard.

he volunteered for subs and is waiting on his nuke rating. he sounded upbeat about training and down about missing home so I've told all family to write and cheer him up.

Thanks Ed, my big galoot was the first guy you see in the first picture. Looks like he got his money's worth on that haircut.
