Hey there ladies!
I need some advice - I contacted at&t to put a military suspense on my Sailor's cell plan, they said they are happy to do this, I "simply" need to fax a copy of his orders in to them.... huh? How in the world do I get a copy of his orders? I thought these were private for OPSEC reasons?
Anyone else had to deal with this - what did you do?

With deployment number two (2) underway by our Marine Son, I was pleased to find this site that shares our Navy and Marine's together. Our son is assigned to the 22 MEU 2/2

My name is Stace Pagel. I am the Cubmaster of Pack 445 in Friendswood, TX, USA. We have gotten together 4 cubic meters of humanitarian items for shipment to Japan. We have a way to get it there (currently by ship, as that's all we can afford). The problem is, we cannot find a consignee (somone to sign for a distribute our freight).
Items include coats, blankets, water, baby clothing, clildren's clothing adult clothing, sanitary items, (napkins,…Continue
It's been so long since I've been on this site! My husband graduated boot camp 2/11/11 and was shipped off to Pensacola for A School! He graduated and is now home until April 1st, then it's off to Norfolk for him! I'm so happy to have boot camp in our past. There were some days I believe I would NEVER make it through! Graduation was definitely a day of happiness because I was seeing my SAILOR for the first time in 2 months and he was all dressed up in his "Dress Blues" :)
Well, its round two for deployment for my son and not thrilled about the destination but proud that my son is in the Navy and doing a job to promote a safer world. I am sad since I haven't seen him for quite awhile and even sadder for his bride that he will be leaving behind. Military life is not easy for sure, but as I watch my son grow and mature through his experiences I am proud and assured that the people who serve our country are the most incredible people of all.
While he is…Continue

Well, the day is finally close. My daughter is leaving for Boot Camp in 8 days! I'm not nervous or sad yet, I'm very proud. I suppose sadness will hit me next Tuesday as I am watching her swear in. I'm nervous for her though because she is very naive' and I don't know if she really knows what to expect. She is so excited though, so I am excited for her.
Is there anyone else out there whose child is leaving for Boot Camp on 4/5/11?
I was wondering about the phases in a-school, right now my boyfriend is at the Great Lakes, training for corpsman. He is getting into his third week and is still in phase 1. We are trying to make plans for me to go out there and visit him for a weekend. He said I will not be able to until he is in phase 2. When will he earn phase 2? And what kind of liberty will he have during phase two?
Thank you :)

So let me start this by saying I don't think I'm really very superstitious.
At the Navy Exchange is a wonderfule Proud Navy Mom decal I've been eyeing for months now BUT I refuse to buy it Yet! I actually feel like I might be jinxing my son if I buy it and actually put it on my car now. So here's the plan. When he leaves for boot camp I'll purchase the decal. When he calls after Battle 21 I'll put it on the car! Anyone else got their Proud Navy Mom decals yet?
