My son was medically disqualified offically two days before he was to leave for OCS.  Needless to say this has been a roller coaster.  Thanks to all of you wonderful moms for helping me prepare myself for his leaving and for being prepared for big bumps in the road.   Good luck to your daughters and sons, I will be praying for them.  I will be leaving this sight since I am no longer a Navy mom, but I will never forget all of you and your supportive comments and I am grateful for your loved ones who are allowed to serve our country.   Please pray that my T finds a good job in the civilian world that will make him happy.

Hey moms,

I am new as well.   T signed on with the NUPOC program in Feb of this year.  When he  graduates with his undergrad in Biomolecular Chemical engineering next year, he will leave for OCS.  How often to they have classes and sessions beginning for OCS?  Just curious if we will have anytime with him between graduation in May and when he has to report to RI.  I am trying to mentally prepare myself for his life changing adventure and am curious about OCS and how many of us will be allowed to go to his culmination ceremony in RI.  I noticed that PIR said 3-4 maximum.  That stresses me out a little cause our immediate family is 5 members other than our officer.  I would hate for some of them to miss it, but I understand the security issues and contraints.

Is there any mom out there with a Son or daughter in Power school. My son just started and finished preschool and has been in power school for about 2 weeks now. Would love to hear about other mom's  stories about their child's experiences.

My son is now in Nuke school. He graduated OCS in Feb. 2009. Was on a surface ship for approximately 2 years and is now a LTJG. Everything has happened pretty quickly. It's sometimes hard to get all the info I want. LOL Can anyone give me a quick summary about what happens for the upcoming year. Thanks.

My son Nick graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering in December 2010.  He leaves next week for OCS in Newport.  He'll then train to work on submarines in Charleston.  I've picked up a lot of information about OCS on this site, but still have some questions.  Assuming Nick doesn't "roll," when can I expect him to graduate?  Is it usually the Friday of the 12th week?  I have heard most people arrive for graduation on Wednesday late afternoon and stay until Sunday.  Is that what you did?  Is your LO able leave OCS at that time, too?  Thanks!

My son graduates from OCS 9/10/10. My son will be on a surface ship.

We are trying to decide how long to stay in Rhode Island after OCS graduation. I assume they get the whole weekend off.

My son graduated from college in May and started OCS in June. He just graduated OCS on 9/11/09. It was great. We enjoyed our visit to Rhode Island. He is working back at school (VMI here in Va) until he starts nuke school in November. Cannot wait to visit Charleston. Hope your son gets into OCS and gets on with his career . He is going to do surface or subs?
