My dad was Army, my brother was Marines and my husband Air Force. I don't know much about Navy, but I'm sure I'll learn a lot pretty quick.
Thank you for the friend request. I have not heard anything as of yet. My daughter was supposed to get a phone call this past Sunday but no one heard from her so now i am worried about that. This is Just ridicously hard when you dont know anything and can not get any kind of informatiion.
Wow, a 7 month old! My girls are 13, almost 9 and almost 7. Blake will turn 18 on 7/27...at boot camp! I've found a few other moms on here with boys who left the same day as ours! Can't wait to see if any of them are in the same division!!
I hope you get all the information here you are looking for. Please stop by the Survival Guide for New Moms for some of the info to start with.
If you have a new Recruit and need phone cards for them please check out Calls for Recruits.org and get them for FREE. I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp. The link above will take you to the website to send the email for the FREE phone cards if you need them. Please spread the word if you know of anyone who can use this great service!!!
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
