A friend of mine who lives up by Great Lakes posted this on Facebook today. Hoping this SR's family is on this page and we can get these pictures back to her.
PLEASE SHARE!!! Long shot I know but trying to find the sailor in this picture to return items that were found near Great Lakes Naval Base. Looks like she was with Division 205 and last name on proof looks like arroyo robles. Probably a graduate and not local but have to try. Pass it on!!!…Continue

So my kiddo went to MEPS earlier this week. He was a bit nervous, but all in all, he had a fantastic experience there. He had already taken his ASVAB and knew what he qualified for. He wanted to be an AO, but was nervous about passing the depth perception. He worried for nothing, because he got everyone of the them right. He…Continue
My son just graduated on July 14th, I am so proud of him. I come from a huge family and there was about 19 of us who got to greet him after the ceremony. He was so happy to see everyone. While he was in boot camp I wrote him everyday, he says it helped out a lot to get mail. All 19 of us went to the airport to see him off and all I could do is cry, he is now in San Antonio, Texas. It is easier because he has access to his cell phone so I could just text him or call him. He has tons of…Continue
On 7/11/17 my baby girl left on her journey to boot camp, it's something she's always wanted to do
so as her mom I'm going to support her life choices, I did my crying away from her but we did share a mommy daughter moment the night before where she told me the hardest part is leaving me. It's
hard, but I know I raised Keyana well and I know she has been preparing her mind and her body for this day. Not being to talk to her is the hardest part for me the longest she's…Continue
The years have flown by!!! It' has been four years since my son left for boot camp, graduated and stationed to San Diego. I still remember when he left for boot camp, and I was a nervous wreck!! I worried about him, is he ok, will he pass all the tests, etc. Graduation came & I was so proud!! I'm still proud of him. He has grown since he has joined the Navy. As of July 7th, he had left for deployment. Do I know where his ship going? NO!! All I know he's deployed for 7 months! …Continue

Are there any other members on here using the Sandboxx app. I downloaded it and have used it 3 times but from the letters from my child she hasn't mentioned getting anything yet from them. I'm just curious if any other recruits have mentioned receiving their Sandboxx letters.
Today we take my future sailor down to San Diego. Tomorrow morning she swears in and is off on the next chapter of her life. I have been feeling anxiety off and on and I'm not really sure if I should share my emotions or hide them. I have had other military moms who have been through this tell me "whatever you do, don't let her see you cry. Wait till she's gone." I've been told that if they see you're upset that it makes the process for them in boot camp and being away from home harder. Any…Continue

When my daughter graduates from Boot camp do I bring her civilian clothes from home with us ?
Or do we have to ship them ?
I need some 'guidance in how to deal with the communication between me and my sailor. Since December my sailor has been outside of US soil and since May he's been at sea. He told me that he would be able to call me from the carrier using phone cards but that has not been the case at all. There's been weeks that I've only talked to him maybe 2 min a day.. is that normal? ...
Right now it's been 2 weeks since the last time that I've heard from him... I know they…Continue
moms write to your recruits EVERYDAY!! they need to hear from you, they love to hear from you and they enjoy the words of support and encouragement that you send. write every day but send the letters periodically.
My daughter has been in ship 5 for about 5 weeks. She is finally coming home. She is taking a psych leave , but has medical issues that would dispose her from qualification. If your child has had frequent ear infections which led to insertion of ear tubes, please check their hearing closely. We never noticed that their was a hearing loss, The Navy did,
Fedex tried to deliver the Box today. The doorbell rang but I didn't run for it because UPS and the Mailman usually just ring the bell and leave...to let someone know there is a package on the porch. I didn't know that Fedex needs a signature...I would have sprinted to the door. Now I have to wait until tomorrow.

We received our first letter from our daughter last week. She is in SHIP 11 DIVISION 231. It was so great to hear from her. She told us the good and bad experiences she has had the first two weeks of boot camp. She commented that the statement is true, "If the military was easy everyone would do it" She seemed to be in a very good state of mind. Acknowledging the difficulty of it, but also finding it very rewarding of being part of something bigger than she has ever been apart of…Continue
