DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Thanks ellen0502 for putting this together

I appreciate the work of the veteran moms.....what a great tool
It seems like our boys must be doing something earn another phone call. I almost feel guilty that we have received two. My son said that this is going to be a big week for academic testing. They will also start some teamwork type things were that can earn division flags. He also said that he was able to earn his E2 by passing (I think) the PT on the first try. Just thought you might be interested in what I know about how the division is doing.

I know Carla I was thinking the same thing. What keeps playing in my mind though is it isn't over til its over. I wish the other moms to hear from their recruit soon.

I was so excited to get that 2nd call.

My guy told me yesterday, that they got in trouble for guys running into the compartment and sliding on the floor.  I guess they had to do sit ups and push ups for half an hour.  But he seemed in a much better mood then last time

Thank you Ellen0502 for all your help and support! My day was made when my SR called home. WOW great phone call. Did not expect a second one so soon. Big week is ahead, he is living his dream! From what I gathered, a little extra PT for everyone in the snow was in store for certain reasons, however all was good!

Just hope it wasn't my boy being foolish and causing trouble. I honestly think he would be too scared there to be his silly self....but who knows what gets in their heads. I know he has pretty much learned that if you listen and do what you're told, things go well. This week sounds like a biggie....I am praying for our divisions to be strong and think clearly in all they do.

Carla, I'm sure it was not your son. They are in good hands and have one another for support. Good thoughts and prayers for all always helps! :)

Cute bunny ellen0502!  :)  Thank you for setting this up!

Carla, my son is a little ornery, as well, but I think he is too scared to do anything silly either.  My son was sick when he called on Saturday...and very emotional.  When you're sick, though; everything seems harder.  Thinking and praying for all of these young SRs!
