Does anyone know if we can send our boys a calling card? Matt didn't leave with one and our phone service doesn't take collect calls? Can he buy one there? If anyone knows please let me know. Did your boys call collect or did they have a calling card? Just hearing his voice would be so great! Until then I will keep reading his letter:) Thanks to all the moms that have been so much help. Can't wait to meet all of you. God Bless!

Well, I drove him to the recruiters office. I didn't even cry. I'm so proud of him. I did tear up when he was hugging his little brothers. When he was able to make his first call, he called his grandparents ( he knew the I would not hear the phone) I can't wait to hear his voice in 3 weeks. I miss him so much.

We think. We may have missed our daughters phone call yesterday. Any other moms ship 3 div 17 get any calls? We were wondering if the caller ID shows unavailable or if it show an area code? We received a call that showed ( unavailable N). Not sure what the N stood for but we automatically assumed it was her. Very depreessed if that is the case.

My son is leaving for BC on Nov 16th and I would like some clarification on something. I am aware that he will be issued BCG's in BC but I read somewhere that he can bring one pair of contacts and a small amount of solution with him for PIR. Now I am also hearing that if he brings them to BC it will only be returned in the box and that he will have to wear the BCG's for PIR. Should he even bother bringing them?

I still have not heard from my son about the final test before graduation---and graduation is in 2 days! Do they wait until the final night to do Battlestations 21?

Week 3! Maybe this week we will receive a letter....boy I hope so. Her dad and I write her everyother day. Just to keep her updated on the family and home...but I'm so anxious to hear from her! Sometimes time is not our friend.

I'm sooo upset, my husband and I have been separated for 4 and a half months...which wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have a 5 month old baby at home. He went to basic then straight to BESS in Groton, CT. He graduated BESS Oct. 8th and we are still waiting for orders. They are telling us that it could be due to the fact that this is the end of the Navy's fiscal year so they don't have money to move us at this time.
The dilemma: My husband wants us to pack up the car and move… Continue

I was hoping to get a phone call last Sunday. I didn't. I am so looking forward to that first call. I am afraid it will be both of us crying though. I am hoping that it will be soon.

My daughter is getting ready to graduate boot camp and is suppose to do her A school in Great Lakes also. After Liberty Weekend she goes back to her boot camp ship for 2 days before she goes to her A school. I was hoping to be able to bring her a few things that she is not allowed to have at boot camp, but is allowed to have at A school. She has mentioned that she heard of 'lockers' that people can rent nearby. Does anyone have any information on this?

My husband is currently in A-School in Florida and I am living in California. Last week we got our orders to Lemoore CA. I am really happy that we get to live in CA because we are both from here. BUT I am nervous about moving to Lemoore because I heard it is a really bad area. Is there anyone who is stationed in Lemoore or has been Stationed there that knows about the town. We haven't found an apartment but he comes home this week and we will start looking while he… Continue

So these past few days I'm not sure If I'm getting some kind of sign..But lately my boyfriend who's in the navy in japan right now, our relationship feels as if idk getting sour.

I really need some input, I know every relationship is different i just feel like i need to hear out from people that are probably going through the same stuff… Continue

I wish these people would realize their message would be better heard if they were not intruding on the grief of a loving family. If I had a ride, I'd be there to stand in front of them to shield the family. I cherish freedom of speech, but this is inappropriate, cruel and thoughtless. May their hearts be filled with remorse and they learn to love the rest of humanity rather than screech for attention.…
