My son arrived at the Great Lakes boot camp on 1-25-16. We received his box but no letter with info regarding the address to send letters to him and the date of PIR. Just wanting to know what to expect. Thanks for anyone that answers.
My son left Tuesday for Boot Camp. I got to talk to him several times before he arrived at the training center, and then I got my last call at 11:30 that night. I sure do miss him. The countdown has begun in our household for his graduation. I can't wait to see him again. I am so stinkin' proud of that boy I could just burst.
I was wondering if a sailor can transfer within a ship to a different area. My son went to school for one thing and was placed in area of the ship he was never trained in. He is getting picked on badly because he doesn't know what he is doing. He is afraid to speak up due to retaliation. He said he doesn't know how much more he can take and has talked about others committing suicide due to this issue. Is there anyone that has knowledge of what he can do to get out of this situation?
Does any one have a son or daughter that was scheduled to leave on the 19 but shipped out on the 20th of January?
My son arrives to Boot Camp today (1/26/16) so any help with this process would be greatly appreciated.

My baby came home for Christmas and while driving back to base received a traffic ticket in Illinois. The cop told her she had to come to court Jan 25th.

The cop said he didn't care an they don't make exceptions for Military. Now, she apologized and wants to pay the ticket, however there has not been a lot of help. She…Continue

Hello everyone I recently enlisted into the Navy and accepted the Navy Airman Apprentice job title. I am wondering if anyone here has a sailor that also enlisted as an airman apprentice and how their experience went. Did they like it? Any input is helpful thank you.
My phone has been with me and the ringer on since I missed the week 3 phone call and it payed off tonight. I got to talk to my daughter and she is doing well, as she has passed her swim test, the timed mile run and is the Recruit Mail Petty Officer. Mom is happy and proud. Earlier this evening I also found her picture on the U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command Facebook page making it a wonderful day.…Continue
