I am a mother of 3 and a grandmother of a 5 year old girl. I am a Realtor in the St Louis/St Charles area, and am having all kinds of fun with the improved market! My husband is an Insurance agent/owner, and spent a ton of time with our Sailor growing up by coaching football and baseball. We miss him terribly!

You made change number 1 and changed your Username; you also need to make change number 2 to remove your SR's name from the URL above. Since you have the photo on this page, you should seriously consider change number 3. Also, edit the photo description to remove last names. Thanks.
Hi, welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Your Username appears to contain your last name; if so, you should change that and the URL to this page. Numbers 1 and 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes To Your Profile) (clickable link) will tell you how to fix both. There may be other changes you will want to make as well, such as number 3. You also need to edit the information you have included with the photo above to remove last names. Do you know your SR's PIR date? Take care and blessings to you and yours.
