We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link) for newcomers. It has everything. Videos, pdf files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. If you could pass the link to others who are new, we would really appreciate it. It looks like you are well adjusted. Thanks. The guide is also a featured discussion - on the Main page, middle section.
Hi Thank you for the friend request. My son is still in the beginning stages. He went to MEPS and scored high on his ASVAB but when he went back to MEPS for the physical he did not pass due to them requesting medical records. We're waiting and hoping for the best. Congratulations to your son :) Take care, God Bless and Keep in Touch :)
