I have received the call the night he arrived, and received the box on the 23rd. I have not recieved the form letter with his address and graduation date. Any input from moms who's child arrived the same day would be greatly appreciated...has anyone received a graduation date and address?
I am the mother of a SR, he is in DIV 180 Ship 14,
I think this might be battleship week.
I miss my boy very much
I will be going to me boyfriends PIR , he would like me to bring some stuff to him to have during A school, but we are not to sure what he is allowed to have. He is staying in GL for school, we already know he will get his new room after he graduates, and wont be going back to RTC, and will be going straight to his room after liberty. Just need to know what I need to bring him from home. Please help me out!!!
another day closer and it does not seem that far away now. at first i was at a loss, and now that i just got my second call from him yesterday and i am waiting for my second letter this week, i can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. He seems to be in great spirits and his mind is where it needs to be with the focus on being a sailor.
I loved hearing from him and though there are some trying times for him .....it is boot camp and i am very proud of my son for finding the "right…Continue
My son left for boot camp on April 16th. I got the box on April 22nd/ Am now waiting patiently for the first letter and for the first phone call. He is in Div 931 ship 2.
I just found out I am going to need a passport in order to go with my husband. I did some research online and found that I can expidite one to get it here faster but that is very costly. Is there anything the military can do for me or am I on my own with this.
My son called today.He sounds good.I'm so happy to hear his voice.We talk for about45 min. He is learning so much.I'm so proud of him.

I received my fist phone call from my SR who is in div 222. He said he is the RPOC of division 222, which means that he is responsible in making sure everyone in his division gets to where they are to be on time,and if they are late, he pays the price. Wow...I am so proud and so impressed!!! He said that he passed his swim test and has gained 10 pounds already. His division was the first to receive their dog tags too. He said he had to go and get ready for…Continue
My son is leaving for Boot Camp on May 23rd.....I will be there when he takes oath and leaves but I'm worried about how hard it's going to be to say goodbye to his family and friends and I don't know if I can be strong and not break down which will make it worse for him.
my husband graduated april 12 from san antonio ma a school and got to spend the last two weeks at home before heading to cuba. They were a great 2 weeks and my only complaint is they went by two fast. Before he left we got news that as soon as a house is open i would be allowed to follow him to cuba which made us both very happy. He left yesterday and it was way harder than i expected it to be. We didnt sleep at all that night cause we were crying to much. We spent our morning at the airport…Continue

This my first post... I was extremely happy to receive my daughter's letter and to talk to her on the phone. She sounds absolutley great. I'm glad because if she were to tell me that she wants to come home or that she doesn't think she can continue on; it would just break my heart, beacause I don't think I would be able to take it. The funny thing about this is that my son was in the Navy and I didn't go through all of these emotions. I mean I was sad to see…Continue
I was just wondering if anyone could answer my question. My son sent home his drivers license. Is there a reason why he did not keep it with him or do they have to send it home with their belongings. Just wondering..... He also sent home is Religious medallion. Why?
11 days till our son leaves for Great Lakes. We had his party this past weekend and it was amazing how many people showed up to say goodbye. Everyone had something wonderful to say about him and we were just beaming with pride. Today he is at the Recruiters for another meetup; he has been asked to attend a recruiting session at his high school next week and he was honored to be asked. It will also give him a chance to say goodbye to his…Continue
My new son-i-law left for the Navy today. He and my daughter were married last Friday. Very emotional day for her (really for all of us). She will be living with us and finishing her master's program for nursing while he is in BC and A school, then not sure where he will be. We are from the midwest and just wondering where he will end up.
