So far no news, We made it to Tuesday! My SR is in a lower number Division in the graduation line and by my GUESS he has done his run and so far no news. I actually think we are in the clear unless they are waiting for tomorrow to have him call. I will relax at this time tomorrow but feeling better. I wrote him a Sandboxx today and have 1 more before graduation. I need to think of something to say in both that and the final written letter. We…Continue
My daughter shipped for boot camp on 5/23, she would have done her 1.5 mile run on Friday (probably) so I figured I'd probably receive a call by Wednesday stating she was coming home/being separated if she didn't pass ( the first or second try). I have been concerned about the run due to the fact that she was told NOT to exercise because she needed to gain weight for MEPS, therefore she didn't practice running. I received a call this afternoon stating " This is a…Continue
I left town so I haven't had time to blog and no news to blog (hallelujah). I am getting nervous because I know the final Fitness test is soon or happened. It will be his final chance. I am trying to relax but Friday I was jumpy nervous. My phone would ring and I would panic. Today I am better and expect will be fine tomorrow. Monday and Tuesday?? Can I relax by Wednesday? I know I am driving myself nuts. I am my own worst enemy. I need to relax because after he was no longer sick he said he…Continue

Just was wondering where I can get the link the morning of graduation. I will be there of course but my dad in No Carolina would like to watch it .
So it's just a couple of days before our son leaves for BC and I am very anxious. I know that he will be able to write letters at some point, but do they get to call at all? If so, do we need to have some kind of calling cards or something for him? We only have cell phones and not a house phone. Any advice?
My recruit shipped 5/10 to BC but his letter to grandparents (glad he wrote them first) said he was delayed and holding until 5/23 when the ship was full. He is in ship 12. His form letter has two grad dates....7/6 and 7/13. I assume that I go with the 7/13 date? How do we know for sure? No correspondence from him at all.
I miss my son although he was a righteous, lazy, unfocused pain in the keister while home. We could not tolerate his choices or behavior and he longed for…Continue
Good afternoon everyone. My daughter has two more weeks of boot camp god willing everything goes well. Can anyone who already went through this tell me when you find out where your loved one will be stationed. Do they find out in boot camp or do they find out during A school ?! Thanks in advance.
We dropped him off at the hotel and were able to have dinner with him. I could tell he was anxious and we said our "see ya laters and cried and hugged tight". He text me later that evening that his roommate at the hotel was nice and that they watched the game.
Next day, his dad and I headed to MEPS. I suggest getting their early like we did because their system went down and we had to wait. Then we got the okay to go ahead to the MEPS building. When he arrived I immediately saw…Continue
Today is the day, we drop him off at the hotel. I’m going to try hard to contain myself & tomorrow we’ll see him do his final swear in and the Friday countdown begins. #navyboy #boymeetsworld
I received a letter from my son today. The first one for about a month. He is doing good with being set back. He sees this as more time to get better. He assured me he will get it done and not to worry. He kept apologizing to me for the "hassle". I had to send him a Sandboxx so tomorrow he will see that there was no hassle just worry for how he was doing. Now I know his head is in the game, I can relax. His new division he said was weird. Just before he went into it, they got a new RDC, they…Continue
Today is a weird day. My son (I am pretty sure) would have been in Battlestation 21 tonight. My friends, I made on this site are receiving their "I am Sailor" calls; my sons old Division won the Captains cup. I am so happy for his division and friends, a little jealous they get to hug their Sailors. I really wish I could talk with him and see how he is doing. His new division got to make phone calls and mothers reported talking for an hour. Logically I know he should have been running but…Continue
We're one week away from our son to leave for BT. Thus far I'm still crying daily in anticipation of him leaving. This week is his last week of work at his job. That's going to be a hard one for him because he loves his job and the people he works with. He's been hanging out with his friends, not sure when they're going to say there good byes. Two of his friends now are wanting to join, and they need to, but they haven't done it yet. He's been meeting with his recruiter and I'm hoping…Continue
I have been talking with several of the mother's on this site and in the new division. I feel this is going to be good and all will work in the end. The new division sounds good and close, plus he is on the USS Arizona. That ship has always been special to me. I have been able to visit twice now. I am seeing good signs and feeling the love of the other mothers.The worst really is no letters for a few weeks and was looking forward to hugging my son. I can make the 3 weeks until I see him and…Continue
This is the reason we keep saying No news is good news. I got a call. He has been set back 3 weeks, it was his run time. My heart hurts for him. He wants to so bad. I hope the 3 weeks does him good because I don't know what will happen if he can't do it. All I can do is pray and change my travel plans.

No letter today. I know he is busy but I am really disappointed. I sent him 2 different questionnaires to make it easier and still nothing. I really want to know his Nuke Rate, how he is doing on his running and how he did on fire arms. This is supposed to be his weekend to call but with Mother's day I don't know if he will be able too.
NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS! NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS! repeat
The good news is, his graduation in in 2 weeks and he is still at boot camp.…Continue
Hello everyone! I just joined this Navy site in hopes of finding others like me who are new/have navy boyfriends and struggle with the distance. We have been best friends for over 4 years now and we have been a couple for over 2 years. We love each other very much and would do anything for each other but the distance is something i've never been good at. I am very emotional as many females are ad I need attention from the person I love. I live in Miami currently and moved here from NYC and…Continue
My son leaves for BT on the 29th of this month. We're super proud of his decision, but of course as a parent I worry. I'm calm at times, but then it hits me during the day and I randomly cry that its getting closer in the days coming that he will be leaving. I know its not going to be forever, but we've never been apart. His three brothers and his dad are putting on a brave face for now, but I know when the 29th roles around they're going to loose it. In all, we know he's going to do…Continue
My son left for boot camp on April 26th. We haven’t received a letter yet, but I was wondering if they might get to call home on Mother’s Day. Thanks for any info. Ready to hear from him.
