Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass isno longer needed to drive on to base for parking.
Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.
I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!! We are a friendly, caring group of moms always willing to listen and share. I have a son and a daughter serving, and another daughter waiting for her final acceptance letter to the Navy's officer program. I do understand the difficulty of lack of communication from our girls while they are in bootcamp. Please feel free to join our chats and let us help you through this new journey of being a Navy Mom. We look forward to learning about you and your sailor. What branch is your son is and where will he be going after his graduation? Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!
Thanks so much for any help you can give the moms for the Meet N Greet. Just post on the PIR group that you will be willing to help. I'm hoping that someone will "head it up" so there will be a "go to" person. Thanks !
