K Bay is in such a beautiful area....my son stationed there for a few years. He never mentioned the food issue but he survived. All the sailors I know...stationed in Hawaii or going to sea will pick shore duty by a total landslide.
Well....I just received the dreaded phone call from boot camp. Today he is in his 11th day and he called to say that he will not graduate per his Graduation letter from last week as he dislocated his shoulder during a particular exercise (due to another recruit not doing what he was told so they were all punished with this exercise). He said his recovery will be 4 to 6 weeks and is now assigned to the "Recovery Division". I know he will no longer be in the same division but what happens now while he is recovering? Continue with the academics portion and then circle back for the physical training once well? How does it all work? What if the shoulder doesn't heal and more attention is needed? He could only tell me minimally what happened and read from a script regarding he not graduating. Any input will be very helpful.....Thanks in advance.
You can shop there with your sailor and I believe if yu stay at the Navy Lodge you get a pass to the NEX
Does anyone know if families can shop at the Navy Exchange while at Great Lakes for graduation?
After "A" school, most Aircrew Survival Equipmentmen are assigned to squadrons, aircraft carriers or other Navy ships carrying aircraft, or Naval Air Stations. There they learn more advanced skills in their rating through on the job training. PRs going to intermediate level maintenance for their first assignment will attend a four week “A” school strand following basic core “A” school. Advanced technical and operational training is also available in this rating during later stages of career development. During a 20 year period in the Navy, PRs spend about 50 percent of their time assigned to fleet units and 50 percent to shore stations.
The duties performed by PRs include: inspecting, maintaining and repairing survival equipment, flight gear and protective clothing (anti-gravity suits etc.); using, adjusting, maintaining and repairing sewing machines; inspecting and testing oxygen regulators, liquid oxygen converters and safety equipment; repairing, packing and rigging parachutes; equipping and packing life rafts; manufacturing various types of fabric work and webbing assemblies used in survival equipment.
In other words no
It is customary to send the CO a formal invitation to one's retirement ceremony. Hope this helps: http://www.goatlocker.org/retire/cporetire.htm
