Jana - Did you check to see if there is a group on here for your daughter's sub? Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check for her subs ombudsman's FB page. Even if you don't do FB, the page should have the contact information for the ombudsman that your daughter can notify and add your name to the contact list, so if nothing else, you should be able to call the ombudsman and ask her questions. I found a FB page but I am not sure about the Blue and Gold difference??
Jana - Congratulations to your daughter!! I honestly don't know about subs much, I would post the question, if you haven't already, in the main Nuke Moms comment section. - Do it there, as it is more likely to get noticed than in a discussion. We have several sub moms on that might respond there. I have to scoot but I will check back in later.
Jana, I received your comment, I just have mine set to approve first. I also saw your PM and I have responded. Look for it in your Inbox that is in the upper right corner of this page, which should be your My Page.
Hi Jana - saw your message to "all" members in the nuke moms group. You should post your question on the actual nuke moms page - that way everyone will see it and can respond. There's lots of moms with sailors at GC right now.
Since you have a Sailor, you can change "At Boot Camp now" above to “Enlisted.”
If you get an error message, then look at the area/s in the error message and unclick all of the choices in the area/s and make choices closer to the question/s. Some choices may have changed since you joined.
