Is there any difference in training for a fleet sailor and a Seabee sailor at RTC?
A funky name for our new adventure. We've left SO and now are learning what GSM is and what they can do in this rate. Now we know that he'll be working with LCAC. I've scoured N4M for people or information regarding his new rate and the possibilities and for friends to share with...to no avail. If anyone can help me or joing me... please feel free to do so ;).
Hi there! My son left for GL yesterday, 5/28. Is there another mom from Orange County, CA who's kid shipped the same day? Thanks!
No letter today so upset not to know how he is... Is there anyone else that hasnt had contact with their recruit... Hope he writes or calls soon...
I just wanted to warn everyone to have an ear open. My son graduated from Navy Boot Camp on May 10th, 2013. He is currently at Great Lakes for A School (DC) and my parents his Grandparents were called last Thursday May, 23rd by someone stating that it was him (sounded congested) stating that he had 3 day's of liberty and he went with a fellow sailor to Canada to a friends wedding where they rented a car. Since he had a cold he took some Nyquil and subsquently got into a car accident. He…Continue
Happy Memorial Day to all
I am looking for any information on Ship 02 Div 933 aka as triple threat, my daughter is in this division. I have received three calls from her so far and her PIR is June 28th. She says everything is good except for the cold she has had since she arrived in the Great Lakes.
My daughter has been transferred to Ship 4, Div 2341 due to some injuries that occurred during her second PFA and now she has to wait thru 6-8 weeks of Physical therapy before she can try to qualify for graduation. The only problem is that we have not heard from her in almost 2 weeks...no phone calls, no letters. Is there any other way to contact her that keep on shooting her letters from home? We are not receiving any responses and are getting worried.
My son went to MEPS but his heart rate was a little to fast.He had to wait 4 days and then see a local doctor and get his pulse checked.Done passed. Now waiting on doc at MEPS to review and get back to him. Long weekend. I want him to stay here as long as he can but he is ready.I am apprehensive but so proud that he is taking this step. He is 25 years old(has had birthday while waiting on everything) and has worked hard to get to this point. He came to us about 6 or 8 months ago. He did not…Continue
My family and I went to Great Lakes last week for my daughters graduation. It was amazing. The Navy does a magnificent job presenting their sailors at graduation. Everyone should experience this. I can guarantee that everyone there was completely impressed and inspired. I am so proud to call myself a "Navy Mom". Please look at my pictures and share the proud moment. :) Thank you to everyone's comments.
Good news!! My son graduated from boot camp October 2012. Since then he has graduated from A school for Navy Corpsman / Medic training and C school for combat training. Monday he reported in at the Greater Lakes Navy base to begin working in the RCU where he was treated for stress fractures while in boot camp. He is loving being one of the staff members now, and already saw one of the doctors who treated him last year. Just know if you have a recruit in RCU, my…Continue
My son left for BC on May 8th...as of today, no form letter. I see other families posting that they've received their letters and I am sure plans are underway for their PIR. Why is my letter taking longer than others who left on the same day? I'm upset and concerned.
Hi all 8 weeks have came and gone i have cried missed phone calls got some letters
but by the grace of god he is almost done. PIR is friday cant wate to see my son. hope he gets a good leave for the holiday.....
So I got my fiance's dirty clothes which was fun. But when does the form letter come, that's what I'm waiting for, I thought it came with the box? (He left May 14...)
It's so hard to believe there are just 34 more days left with Josh until he leaves to start his new life! The time has flown by; so fast in fact, that I find myself in this surreal situation watching my middle son become a man before my very eyes. Words will never adequately express how proud I am of him, how much I will miss seeing his face each day, his wit and sarcasm, and all the joy he brings to the house. It's so amazing how quickly this has come about, even though it's been 6…Continue
Hey everybody I have a question about seeing a doctor. My husband is stationed over seas and is in the process of getting me down there with him. We almost have it all done except for getting my medical clearence. His chief is going to be sending me the correct papers to get filled out and then send back to them for processing. Sounds easy enough but my only problem is I dont know where to go to find the right doctor. Can I just go to my regular doctor or does it have to be a military…Continue
My son is in this ship/div. Is anyone out there planning to attend this ceremony. My husband and I will be flying into Midway, and looking for ride share with anybody who will be staying at the Holiday Inn Waukegan. Let me know if anybody is interested.
