So I just got a call from my boyfriend and he told me that he is being allowed to make a new list of guests for his graduation. He told me that he had put me on this new list with his family. How will I know if I have actually been put on the list? Is there some official "something" that I am supposed to receive? It would be a shame to fly all the way out there just to find out that I cannot attend....So my overall question is how in the world do I know that I am actually allowed to attend…Continue
My son’s wife has been debating on what to do about my sons A school. My son wants her to go stay where he is going to be so he can see her on weekends. His A school is only two months how much time will he even get to spend with her? Overnight visits? Weekend leave? Is it worth it? What are the general rules for A school in Mississippi regarding leave, what can they bring there and what can be shipped there?
When do Sailors get their orders? Do they go straight from their A or C school to their duty station? Are they allowed any leave time to go home and get ready to be relocated? I am hoping that my son gets orders for San Diego or even LA. It’s a big military town so maybe, but I know it’s a long shot.
My son left for boot camp July 8, he's on Ship 12 Div 331.
Sure would love to talk to someone else who has a son or daughter there with him :)
Well this is the final week my SR will be home. I still don't have a definite date for his departure. I always thought he was leaving on the 1st, but he kept telling me was the 31st. I get a text from him at the recruiters office saying he is leaving on 1st. I think I will call the recruiter just for verification, I am NOT going to miss his swearing in. I have known since fall of last year that he…Continue
I just got home & FOUND a LETTER in the mail from my son. Apparently it came last Fri 7/19 or Sat 7/20 & my husband didn't see it. In many ways I am *Happy* :) but Sad. I could not read the Letter from crying. He said it was hard for him to hold back the tears while writing to me.

We got our first call yesterday and my son is so homesick to the point of questioning his decision to join. He left for boot camp July 10th so he has only been gone for 18 days. I managed to hold it together until we hung up and then proceeded to cry like a baby.
Has anyone else gotten similar calls? He is only 18, lived a very sheltered life thanks to this very (too) protective mom, he is missing his girlfriend and was just so sad. All I can think about now so any words of advice…Continue
I got my 2nd phone call today from my Sailor, Ship 3 Div. 328. He sounded good, said it's getting easier and 4 weeks left. He is still glad he decided to join the Navy. No regrets. This makes me feel happy.
Looking for a group for SR in Ship 11 Div 345.
Anyone have a sr ship 12 Div 349 ?
For a Mom who is always the strong one who everyone else leans on in hard times today is that day that nightmares are made of. I am so emotional for absolutely no reason. My SR has not given any indication that anything is wrong there, my other children and grandchildren seem to be happy and healthy but I simply can not go ten minutes without crying.
I really just want work, people, traffic.....well, everything to just go away. I know that this is not helpful to me or any of my kids…Continue
My son is graduating from "C" school. I plan on going to his graduation. Typically how many people can attend? PIR limited guests to 4, is it the same?
Thanks for taking some time and checking out my blog! I'm new and suuuper confused! I could use all the help I can get :)
My fiance just signed up for the Navy in May of this year. A week after he met with the recruiter, he proposed :)! I'm so excited but we haven't made plans yet, nor set a date! We're afraid to make any plans because there is no telling what will change in the next couple of months as far as A school and shipment days go.
He is leaving Sept. 5th of…Continue

As a mom with 5 kids with all but one grown up and over the age of 18 it was a shock for my youngest daughter (#4 of the 5 kids) to tell me at the beginning of her senior year that she was joining the Navy. I felt fear and pride at the same time. It was not difficult to accept her choice to join the Navy it was difficult to accept that she would be gone from where I could be actively involved in her day to day life. Her Dad and I divorced almost 6 years ago and she chose to live with her…Continue

Make sure you check out the new Navy STEM PSA. Filling the needs in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) is crucial to the future of the country. That’s why we want you to watch the PSA and share it with friends and family. Get the word out there, encourage and be proud if your Sailor works in a STEM related area!…
Looking for a group page for HSC-15 in San Diego or a Coronado Island Helo group
