Good evening Lonasboys - I just wanted to welcome you to BC Mom group. I am one of the several regular "veteran" moms who help out in that group to answer questions and offer encouragement to all of our members. I see you joined the DEP leaving for BC in June group. My son will be in for 3 years tomorrow. He left the month after he graduated from high school and has three more years to go on his contract - so we are half way through. In one sense, it seems like it has been a really long time and in another, it seems like the time has flown by. I just wanted to say hi and encourage you to connect with our BC Mom group and your CO Mom group as much as you are able to. If you know what your son's rate is or where he will go for A school, we can also help you locate groups for those as well. My you have a restful evening. NMH (Navy Mom Hugs) - Chipmunk
Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!
Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.
Then jump right in! Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.
Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.
Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!
Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.
This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.
Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
