These guys are singing to a fellow shipmate's son about how they will be there for him forever. I cry everytime I see it.

I have always been proud of all the past and present servicemen and servicewomen and have always honored them in any way possible. Now, I have a different appreciation for the servicemen and servicewomen since my three children are part of the Navy. My daughter, Samantha, is a reservist, my older son, John, is full-time SARs and deployed now and heading overseas, my younger son, Matthew, is a DEPPER and ships out in July. Any time a news broadcast talks about the military, I stop in my… Continue

My daughter may be separated from Navy Boot Camp due medical injuries. She is currently in Ship 6 recouping.
If she is separated, does anyone know if it would be a Medical or General Discharge?
She told me she may also choose to come home to recoup and then go back at a later time to Boot Camp. As a mother, I am not sure this is a good idea as I know she is skeptical that she may suffer the same injuries or worse.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, especially about… Continue

I have some more questions. I heard from my daughter, she now has a
different diagnosis. First it was stress fracture of neck of femur
(shown by xray), then MRI was done and was inconclusive but she may
need surgery. then the latest was bone scan and she was told she would
not need surgery, there were no stress fractures or breaks but stress
reaction to her leg bones. She has yet to be seen by an orthopedic
doctor or any doctor.
Today she got to call me and… Continue

Only 15 days left until PIR! Somehow it seems time is slowing down this week? Can't get through the days fast enough. Where is a magic time machine when you need one?
So excited I can barely breathe!

My husband is in boot camp right now. I was reading on other blogs how after boot camp they go to A school I knew about this just didnt know how long it lasted and i read it could be from a couple of months to a year is this true. If it is a year do the wives get to go to because I couldnt imagine being away from him for a whole year these nine weeks are about kill me. We are having our first child any day while he's at boot camp and I don't want him to miss out on the first year of his life..… Continue

Yippee! I can write my son. I contacted his recruiter, and received the information, sent 2 letters off today. Writing another tonight, and some jokes, to lighten the mood.
Being able to write,helps me feel better. Waiting for PIR date, received his box yesterday.
Anyone else child leave on or around May 20th?

Got our letter yesterday so we can now write to her. Let me know if anyone out there has the same address??
A lady overheard me in the dentist office this morning talking about my daughter in boot camp. She stopped me on the way out and said she had been in the Navy as well. Then, she prayed for me and for my daughter. Made me cry. What a blessing to have people around who are so caring!

If I go to school and get my degree, to be a Medical Assistant, can I still work on Base? or is there any way I can work on base, and that way if my man and I end up moving in a year or two, I'll still be able to have a job no matter where we go?
How does that work out? If anyone has had to move around, a lot for their loved one, can you help me out with this ? I'm just curious as to whether I can have a stable career, or if it's going to be hard for me to find a job anywhere I go, IF… Continue

My question is when our sailors put in for leave to come home do they get any kind of military discount or do they have to pay the full price of the plane ticket. Some of of sailors are halfway around the world and it does cost a pretty penny if you know what I mean. Also are they able to catch a military flight on those big cargo planes. Hope someone can answer this question. Thanks again.
