After PIR is there a restriction on how far the graduates can go? My step-son wants to meet us in Chicago, which is about an hour away, after graduation. Wasn't sure if they are allowed to go that far or if it's too much to do in one day?
Is Monday, June 1st going to be payday for our SR's? I've seen comments posted before about this but I can't seem to find it again. My son left for BC 4/29

I really wish I knew what program my son was going into after bootcamp. I know it's Aircrew, but he said he has at least 2 years of school ahead of him before he even begins his job. He told me what it was at MEPS, the recruiter had just told him, but I didn't write it down and now I can't remember...ugh!!! I wanted to look up information online about it. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
My husband got swore in on the 13th of May in San Diego, he flew to Illinois on May 14th. He is now in his 10th day at boot camp I guess you can say. I am missing him more than ever before. I am living at my in laws house. Its so hard waking up every morning and not having him next to me, going to bed every night and not having him there. We are a team, we're so used to being together all the time together and now that he's hundreds of…Continue
Perspective is everything. I remember Memorial Days from days gone by, both as a kid and with my children. Parades, events, beach days, a long weekend. On the edges of my mind I was fully aware of what the holiday was truly meant for, to remember all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. May 15 isn't far away from Memorial Day, it is Police Memorial Day, rollcalls are read, friends remembered, wreaths laid. I created the Honor Guard and memorial for my department, and attended every…Continue
She got the call last week that her ship-out date had moved from November to June, she was hesitant. We have been supportive and encouraging of her decision, either way. She will go to Charleston, SC for Nuclear School for two years, following her PIR.
I am trying to be less emotional about it all (depends on the day), however some days the tears flow out of pure joy for the immense pride I have for her, already. I know in my mind she will be fine, yet it seems the heart rules more…Continue

Well, the last time I blogged was when I was talking about attending the commissioning ceremony for my son's ship, USS America in San Francisco.
My husband and I went to the commissioning ceremony, and we had a WONDERFUL time!!! First we went sightseeing. I always wanted to go to Madame Tussaud's museum, and we went there. Took tons of pictures! The ceremony was beautiful and so many people attended from all around the country. While we were walking down the pier, my son was…Continue

So I got a call from my son today, it was wonderful to hear his voice. The beautiful thing is that he managed to call on the day his sister graduated from College! How wonderful was it that the two of them got to speak. As I am sitting here and writing this I am thinking of all of the change that has come to pass in our life over the last two years. His graduation from college, hers, his entry into the Navy, her engagement and upcoming wedding (maybe his:)), BOTH of them moving to other…Continue

Well ladies, I know I haven't been on here in awhile. But yesterday I got to see my youngest son off to bootcamp. Emotions are still running high for me right now& I don't like the sadness. I'd rather be happy for him, I wish I could just turn the tears off. Even as I'm writing this, I'm finding it harder to believe. I just hope the next 2 months go by real quick. Me& my husband have been looking into how we're gonna get there for his PIR. He doesn't want to drive because that would…Continue

I had a question about the number of guests that can attend graduation. I know they say 4 people to a recruit, are the very strict with that? What if there is more than 4 people in the family do we have to choose who can go?
