Good Evening Okkay303 - I am just following up with some of our newest members, making sure I give you a personal welcome to BC Mom and also in your case to Nuke Moms. I wanted to tell you that I really like your Avatar! If you need any help with anything, please don't hesitate to ask.

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!!
