So your daughter is in boot camp now? Come join the chat in our group - there is usually someone on every day. We are a friendly, caring group of moms who have daughters in all stages of Navy life - from newbies to those whose daughters have been in for several years - from officer to enlisted!!!

Let us support you when you're missing her, lend an ear when you need to vent, and celebrate with you when you want to brag!! We look forward to getting to know you and your sailor!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!
