This group does not have any discussions yet.
My son went to Okinawa July 2. He's been there awhile and loves it. He doesn't get much time off base because they have to have a liberty buddy and his friends are busy studying to pass their E5 qualifications. We've skyped a few times but mostly keep in touch by FB messenger.
can I ask what the warehouse is? LOL
Hi. My Corpsman's soft orders just popped. He will be with 3rd Marines leaving in September. I think I am in shock 'cause I didn't even know this was a possibility. He is excited as 2 of his buddies got the same orders. They have been together from boot camp through A school and FMTB. I would like to know any info on the phone situation. We have Verizon as well.
Hi -hoping to get a few answers from this group. My daughter is heading to Okinawa, stationed in Camp Foster. We are wondering about phone service. She has the iphone 4-and our carrier is Verizon. Will we be able to talk-text-FT or is there something we need to do. I was told no you cannot talk, she has to get a rentaphone, then someone else told me yes but she will be international roaming. I seem to be getting a lot of different answers. I plan on calling my carrier but was hoping someone here could give me something solid :)
My son should be in Oki Japan by now, last I heard he was in Tokyo waiting for a plane to Oki on early sunday morning, yesterday. He is a Surgical Tech stationed at the navel hosp there. Hope to connect with some moms here!
Barbra-My son has been in Oki for almost 2 months. He has not started working yet but will be pushing papers in an outpt Mental Health clinic. He is Psych Tech. He has been in Idoc Company since he got there. I think it is time they get him working. Did your son go to C school? Welcome to the group.
