My daughter left for RTC this past Wednesday (8/26/2015) and I never realized it was possible to miss someone so very much in my life. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing and when I got the "I'm Here" call and she was crying, my heart broke into a million pieces. I am sure she wasn't the only SR in tears by the time they got to make that short phone call and I know I am not the only mom feeling the way I am feeling right now. I am trying to stay upbeat and positive about this whole…Continue
I know we can't send packages to the SR's, but when Marshall's box came home we found his retainers. I know they can keep them, just didn't know who he needs to let know that we are mailing them. Also since they are pulling his wisdom teeth I feel that he will need them even more to keep his teeth from shifting. I paid too much money for that simle, I can't do that again..

Today is the end of the 4 week mark in boot camp for my son. So far all seems well. I haven't received news otherwise. We have always lived here near Great Lakes, and he mentioned that it's weird being so close to home, yet so far away. I wish he wasn't such a man of few words! I obviously am counting down the days until I see him, as are all of the other parents out there. Are there any other families out there that live near Great Lakes as well? God bless to all of you who joined this…Continue

My daughter just left for bootcamp on Aug 18th, 2015. So proud of her. I cant stop thinking about what she is doing every minute of the day. Is she OK? My biggest fear are her emotions. She is physicall strong and emotionally strong however this is life changing event and I worry about her. I just want to make sure that she is OK?
Any advise for mommies that worry about there little girl? LOL
I am one happy mom, we received his box today and his form letter yesterday. First letter is in the mail. I kept it to only 2 pages..lol I can't wait to hear from him. Getting the box was emotional as your child's clothes he had on come home but he didn't, such a weird feeling. We could not be more proud of son. I did hear something from some Facebook friends today in regards to the letters to our SR's and if anyone can chime in that would be great. I was advised by a couple of prior…Continue
My son is being pinned as chief and is stationed 14 hours away. I am very proud of him and I understand this is a milestone in his career. However it is on a Wednesday afternoon and it would be very difficult for me to be there. How necessary is it for me to be at this event? If it is necessary what should I wear? Thank you
Missing my son. He left 3 weeks ago. We did get a short letter. Does anyone know about the phone calls? When do they come? Do they let us know so we can be waiting by the phone?
For anyone that wants to join our support groups on Facebook...here is the name of the page - PIR 11/16/12 & 10/16/15 US Navy. I started this group when my oldest went to the Navy and now it is time to get it going again.
Sailing hugs to each of you,
My SR called today very upset and crying.

She has been in BC since April, 7, 2015.She says she has 180 days to complete but she has used up much of her time. I'm confused, I don't know what's going on. People try to help but I get conflicting…Continue

My son Tyler left this past Tuesday (8/11/15) for boot camp, and I am trying to adjust. Being in the United States Navy is something he has wanted since he was 7 years old and I have always supported his goal and to see it start to unfold for him is amazing. I am nervous for him, sad he is gone and excited at the same time. The mix of emotions has me all over the place.. lol As I am sure others feel the same way. We are new at the military life and I am starting to realize I have a lot…Continue
