So, K's grandmother sent her a present for her birthday (tomorrow - yes, Halloween). It is the cutest stuffed bear dressed in a sailor suit and sings "Anchor's Aweigh." When she played it, K realized that in less than 3 months her entire life is going to change and that she will no longer call the only home she has known for 20 years "home." It was quite a shock for her. She is still excited - not…Continue
We had anticipated the day Jesse would depart for many months since he made the decision to join so many months ago. While at first I was very nervous, after meeting with the recruiter and asking my own set of questions it seemed like a positive path overall. Prior to his decision to go, he knew what he enjoyed doing but wasn't really passionate about any career path and his direction after H.S. was vague. When he made the decision to join I saw a passion, vision and purpose ignite in him…Continue
House of Jerky is matching donations 1/4lb for 1/4lb for the N4M Holiday Project
My husband's cell phone rang about an hour ago with a number that he didn't recognized and he almost didn't answer it, but then he did! I looked at him funny until he said "hi buddy", then I started crying because I knew it was our son. My husband said to my son that he better hand the phone over to me first. I was trying to not cry because I wanted it to be a very positive call. I just started asking my son questions so he could talk and I could get better under control. It was great to…Continue
My son, Ben has set up a meeting with a recruiter for Monday-Halloween. I'm concerened of course so I am going with him.
I will spend the weekend gleening this website and any others that I can find to make sure that I ask the right questions- get the right answers and get the best future for my son.
In the past couple months I've heard about 1000 times from ladies that want to get married after their sailor gradutates from boot camp....
My son was called by his recruiter on Friday that she had heard about his medical waiver. Apparently it's being reviewed now and they needed his file sent to them (for the 3rd time) and he should know by the end of this week! I sure hope so! Of course, then it's a wait to get back to MEPS and pick a job (if there are any available) and then the wait for BC. So our waiting is not over with yet - but....at least we know that the NAVY is looking at his case now!
Tears of Joy! My beautiful daughter called tonight. I screamed when I heard her voice. I put her on speaker phone - then my cell phone's battery died! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? My phone decided to quit on me on the phone call that I have been longing for! Thank goodness she called again to her Daddy's phone. I had a good 6 minutes to talk. She was tearful because she misses us and her dog! I was scared for a moment that something was Seriously wrong. What a great night...and there were 3…Continue
I was playing around on the Recruit Training Center Facebook Page today and found that on the sidebar there is a Discussion tab.... lots and lots of people who may not know anything about N4M site. Kind of sad that there were 2 full on discussions for each Division, one N4M and one RTC..... anyway, I hope some of them will find their way to our site. For the ones I left messages for, here is the 11/4 PIR groupContinue

Well, I guess there's no denying the fact that he is actually leaving anymore... We had his going away party this past weekend and it was AWESOME to see so many people that we know and love there supporting him full-heartedly in his future endeavors.
So now we can check "have going away party" off of our to-do list before he leaves, along with "get pictures taken" and "take care of financial matters". Now if only he would work on "lose weight", we'd be golden. I'm worried that he will…Continue
