DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

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."

Hi all, I thought I'd start a discussion for those of us with SRs who will be heading to Charleston, SC together for the NUKE program so we can stay together through that as well!

Teach Ilove ypur theme, I am also a teacher but working as a PSR in the schools, I would love to be in ypur classroom! Good ideas I'm going to see the recruiters for reward stuff for my clients. You could play"last man standing"with right face, left face about face, attention, and parade rest. I know an army soldier/teacher that does that.

teach2......LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new theme! I would love to see some pictures! You students are blessed to have a teacher who cares as much as you do! We are blessed as a nation to have a military that does all that they do for us! God bless America and our Military!!
Comment by teach2(ship 11 div 200) on July 17, 2011 at 11:21am

Well, in case you didn't know- I'm one of those teachers.... (wink) wear the funky clothes and all that... Anyway, I change the theme in my classroom each year- the decor and the reading corner, etc. I've decided to do a military theme this year in honor of Christina's new life. 'It's not just a class-it's an adventure" "We want YOU for 2nd grade!"

Yesterday I was out visiting the various recruit offices to see if I could get some posters to decorate with. I have to tell you how very nice and accomodating these people were. They went out of their way to get 'extra' things for the kids- pencils, tattoos, stickers- things I wasn't asking for. They also had the audacity to tell ME they appreciate MY job. I quickly shut that down (not risking my life in my profession....) however, I left each time feeling more proud of the group of people my daughter will be spending so much time with and learning from.

God bless our military~

What is normal?  regonbowtopia... 

I recorded that show and watched it last night...and our kids think they had it tough...haha That is some seirous training!  I would never have inagined!  I was amazed by Smith and his knee trouble!  WOW

Comment by Barrablanca on July 14, 2011 at 4:41pm

Normal?  Not the kids of this group.  They are going on to "new" EXTRAORDINARY  lives.  With moms like you all,  they could be nothing else.


Comment by teach2(ship 11 div 200) on July 14, 2011 at 4:17pm
Wow! This is all so exciting! Everyone is beginning to start their "new" normal lives. I'm happy for all of you reaching this point.
Comment by papercrafter on July 12, 2011 at 6:30pm

makdab, They have more space then you think on board ship. I had plenty of stuff when I was in (20 years ago). Between my rack and stand up locker there is a lot of room. It was the best sleep I ever had, being rocked to sleep every night.

Comment by reignbowtopia on July 12, 2011 at 6:04pm

I put this information on facebook, but since perhaps not everyone is on facebook I'm reposting.  Last night I watched part of a show about training to become part of SWCC(something like Small Warfare craft crew) on Discovery channel.  I thought it was interesting to get some insight into the training required for different jobs in the Navy.  I don't know the name of the show but if you're interested you could probably check the Discovery channel website for more information. 

makdab - My son is headed to Norfolk after leave and he thinks he'll be living on the ship also.  He also is excited to get started, he's tired of training.  If your Sailor does end up living on the ship please share any tips.  The ship my Sailor is assigned to is currently on deployment so he doesn't know what he'll be doing. 

Comment by makdab(ship11,div196) on July 12, 2011 at 11:54am
He will be living on the ship.  He has no clue how much he is allowed to bring.  Taking all of his navy stuff, a few civies and then I will probably have to mail him stuff once he figures out what is going on.  I can't imagine in either, but he is looking forward to getting there and heading out to sea!
