So I’m going to be adding some “featured” threads on the front page. I am going to start doing this, because I really want everyone
to put his or her two cents in. (And if you have three more cents to make it a nickel, then that is fine also- ha, ha!) :)
I’m still keeping the “how did you find us”… because- I’ll always want to know how you found us. :)
Today’s post is from a mom who has a son thinking about joining the Navy.
Thank you, in advance,… Continue

Hi Everyone :)
So, as we grow bigger and bigger I find myself becoming a bit more "conservative" when it comes to photos, videos… and yes, even content. I know, I know- I feel like I am being a prude…ish jerk. But I’m doing it for safety, privacy and, the community’s best interest in mind (IE in making sure that everybody feels comfortable here). Before I get e-mails on this– Please let me offer up the some solutions.
I need to be more selective on what goes on the… Continue

I feel like the R&B/Pop artist Beyonce in one of her recent songs where she sings… “Mama let me upgrade you” Hehe : )

This is a community were we want everyone to feel comfortable.
I understand that there will be times where you will want to disagree with another member. So if you get upset, and you write it on the public boards, note that hundreds of others will read it, including new moms who kids are thinking about joining the navy. Is that the impression we want… Continue

Hi Navy Family : )
All right, I am getting down on my knees and I am begging you (from the bottom of my heart)
to PLEASE all start using the search function more often...actually- use it BEFORE you even want to start a new discussion.
I feel like I like I’m having some major cases of déjàvu. We have so many GREAT conversations already started on hotels, and empty nests, PIR, etc, etc, etc… that I really need everyone to search before you ask

Hello Ladies and Gentleman:
So as we near 500, we have many duplicate names. (IE, We have 10 Lisa's, 6 Karen's, 6 Sue's, and 9 Debbie’s). I am asking you to please make your name unique (pretty please... I am starting to get a little confused reading the forums... and sometimes I can't tell what Karen or Lisa I am reading about.) I don't mind if you have your first name still in your display name... I just need more than that. You don't have to use your last name...just something that you… Continue

Okay- I wanted to make a blog about this to spread the word as fast as possible (and it’s good news!).
There was some chatter that RTC may be holding off visitors for graduation due to heighten security. But I am here to tell you to breath easy. And relax. Hehe.
For sailors that are graduating this weekend, everything planned to go on as normal. My cohorts have told me that there IS NOT heightened security (It may of gone up around the time when VP Dick… Continue

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again. ~Ronald Reagan

I've all enjoyed learning about you and your remarkable Sailor(s)! You've done a fantastic job getting the site started, and now we'd like to let the world know about the community you've built! It will give other moms just like you a chance to come share their stories, or to get honest answers to the questions they may have should their child be considering the Navy.

Hi Navy Moms:
So I’ve posted a few misperceptions in the forum (second page).
I’m wondering: Have you heard of these misperceptions? And well, are
they even misperceptions ... or are they truthful? What are your experiences? Thank you for your help… and hey, if you know of more “misperceptions” that isn’t there, then please post it! :)

Hi Moms (all 26 of you!):
So, with the input of VeryProudNavyMom- I have updated forums. There are more subjects. Also, you can post your own topics under the categories. Please note that the categories now move to the second page. If there isn't a category on there that you want to see, please let me know! I really want to make sure I have spaces for you to talk about whatever is on your mind.
