"So glad to have you with us Rorie. Yes, that's basically it, besides a good chatty letter. Decide your budget for the shipping. Large flat rate box is close to $18 in postage. There is a medium and a small box/bubble envelope too. Pick up one…"
"okay all, I'm a newbie all the way around, how do we go about shipping any of the items listed above? Do we gather the items and send them to the moderator of the group. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!"
"NavyFamily, I sincerely hope your sailor will do well in his new rate. Nuke School just isn't for everyone and there is NO shame in not making it through. My sailor made it through but he has friends that didn't......they are MUCH happier…"
"Prototype work schedule is totally different. Usually once a month they have a 4 day weekend. Also there is no holiday stand-down.
After Prototype, they have 30 day leave to move to their first duty station.
Hope this helps. Pat"
Not sure if I'm in the right place. . thank you for adding me for adopting a sailor :) , but I'm a little confused on where to start. . .do I just create a box of needed things & send it to the address specified each month?
There's been lots of issues with N4M lately. I've been working with the ad agency that handles the N4M account and I am having a conference call with them on Thursday morning. I've got a few other mom's (& a dad) on here that I've been communicating with and they are going to be in on the call. If you would like to join us, let me know. It will be Thursday, 11/17 at 10am CT. I can give you the info if you want to be in on it. Otherwise I can just let you know what's happening afterwards. Doing my best to help save the site!
PatLe.....y, Your full name is visible in the URL above and every time you post. Make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.)
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Thank you for the warm welcome Pat!! I am a newbie and trying to find my way around on here. I am willing to help in any way that I can. I look forward to being a part of this great group. Again, thank you!!!
