Can we all just take a minute and say a prayer for the seven Navy Moms who this wekend received the phone call that no parent ever wants receive.
Carry on, USS Fitzgerald.
So my boyfriend graduated a couple of weeks ago and is in Pensacola for his A school. He is my absolute everything and without him I am pretty much a loner. Something that I have gotten really used to, but now I am longing for something to do. Most of my friends are interested in partying all the time, not that I don't enjoy parties its that I wouldn't know much people and I am not the best at small talk. Point is my Sailor has met pretty awesome people and having a great time and I can't…Continue
My son arrived on Monday 6/12. I got my call that night and he sounded tired. Wonder why?? Ha! I received the box on Thursday. No letter yet. I don't know if he will write, but I am sending him writing materials, just in case:) It's just so hard not knowing how he is, has he made any friends, is it what he thought it would be. He had a friend leave 2 days after and I wonder if they will see each other. He has been 8 hours away at college the last 4 years, but I still talked to him…Continue
My son is in "A" school and has been for over a month now. I get a few calls and texts from him but I realize he is very busy with schooling and other things he must do. I have ask questions and don't always get an answer or response and since it seems most days I still have very little time to actually "talk" to my Sailor I sometimes don't ask all the questions on my mind. Can someone direct me to a page/website that can give me some insight on his days? His graduation? I found something…Continue
I am trying to find out some information on the next steps after boot camp so my husband can become a SEAL. See my husband trained for 2 years to enlist in the NAVY and go into the SEAL program. But I feel like I am in the same situation that I was in BEFORE he enlisted, informationless. My husband left to boot on the 17th of May and since then I have tried to research how he can move forward with his dream and I can't seem to find useful information. After he…Continue
Wow, this time next week we will be on the road heading for Great Lakes. I can not believe that boot camp is almost over. I am sure my SR does not feel the same way!
Looking forward to witnessing this next milestone in my son's life. His family and friends are so proud of him.

Friday last week@9;27 i got the call it was such a scripted call i was bummed of the repeated call do don't come to my graduation that he didn't pass his run and yesterday we would have another chance at it but we never got the call to say he passed and tomorrow is his PIR date . I wish he was graduating but instead i sit here wondering what to do and worry ! We write him daily and well i have got like 4 letter this entire time i know they are very busy . I just wished i new more ..
So since I wrote "How I've Changed" I have become a little less obsessive. I have stopped stalking the postal employees, I don't spend hours online searching for more information and I'm not scared to chat online or send a random stranger a friend request. I spoke to my son on Saturday, most of the call was him laughing at me because I was trying to impress him with the Navy lingo I have learned. I think I used some of it incorrectly, but he just humored me. Because of this site and the…Continue

Can anyone please help me. My daughter left for boot camp on April 19th. The only thing that I have yet to receive is her box with personal clothing items and her cell phone. Should I be expecting to receive anything else anytime soon. I have no idea when graduation is and I am eager to get my room booked. Her recruiter is no help as he never returns my phone call, so very disheartening. Can anyone fill me in on what to expect or when to expect it?
