My husband arrived at boot camp on 1-8-19. We are expecting our first child 3-16-19, a sweet little girl we plan on naming Emmalynn. Since he left I received his box of clothes but nothing else, no letter, I don't even have his address so I can't send letters. I wish I knew how he was doing, it is so hard!! How do you moms/spouses do it? I found this site in hopes of not feeling so alone in this new lifestyle!
My son's PIR was pushed back to March 01, 2019. He gave me his division # and PIR date, however I did not get his Ship#, in order to get proper address. Will that be provided in the form letter and how long before I receive that letter. I spoke to my son on January 03, 2019. Any info would greatly be appreciated! Thanks
My youngest son arrived at boot camp on Dec. 13 I thought it would be easier for me since I already have a son in the Navy, but it is still hard going through this process.
Hi there! Merry Christmas to everyone!
My son entered Boot Camp on November 22. He is in division 083. I had hoped for a call at Christmas, but alas, did not get one. It's not like it was promised or anything, I just miss him and had hoped for one.
So, what did they do on Christmas at Boot Camp? I can't seem to find much. I don't think he is far enough along to be part of the Adopt-A-Sailor group. Did they have a full/regular day? Did he get or do anything special? …Continue
So my daughter started camp in Oct and was just pushed to the FIT division as she hurt her knee on her final PT run and was not able to finish..Has anyone been through this. She did call to let me know she would not graduate this week and that the x-rays would come back today..
I am not sure if or who I can reach to find out what the results are and when she will be able to retest. They only allowed her less than 5 mins to call and of course was in tears the whole…Continue

HAS ANYONE ON HERE USED THE SANDBOXX APP TO DELIVER MAIL TO YOUR SR IF SO, DID YOUR SR RECEIVE IT AND DO THEY GET ANY TROUBLE FOR THIS KIND OF MAIL?? NEW TO ALL THIS
My daughter left and reported on November 13 and we got her phone call that she was safe and sound on November 14th.
I haven't heard from her since. I have no idea what to expect and when she might call again. Haven't got her address to send things to her, letters. She did say it might be a while though.
We did get her box back a week later with all her stuff.
I am at a loss... can anyone help with what I can expect or when I might get to talk to her?
I am so glad I haven’t donated or disposed of the stadium seats I used for highschool and college games. Packing three for trip to PIR. Yes...taking 2 extra for my SR’s father and aunt.
Have spoken with with my son 3 times today. He warned me about the bleachers at PIR and be prepared to walk a lot. I’m very practical. I may near my muck boots for the track to the graduation the put on my nicer shoes once I arrive. Maybe I will purchase a clear vinyl bag to carry them…Continue

I receive one phone call and I conference the ex’s family in so everyone can talk.i find his picture on the recruit website and I send to ex’s family. This morning no one could reciprocate my kindnesses. I’m tired. Someone please claim me to sit with and enjoy graduation. I just don’t think I have it in me to have to deal with them for two days on my own. God would get me through if I have…Continue
U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command blessed me with a glimpse of my son marching in the snow with his ship mates. He looks great!!!!! He looks confident and proud!!!! I cried like a baby. I am still planning to knock him on the back of his head like Gibbs does DeNozo on NCIS because I have not received ONE letter. I have been a worried mother hen only to find out he is doing great!!!! I took a screen shot and forwarded it to everyone I know. The happy smirk was there. It will be such…Continue
Finally heard from my son this morning. They just allowed an hour of phone calls. Since after the 5 vaccinations were given, he’s been suffering cold and congested and he sounds awful on the phone and not taking any medication for it. Thank God, no fever. My son was chosen as a Port Leader in his division. Being a division leader, he's the first to wake up and the last one to go to bed. So he's sleep and rest deprived. Poor baby. His…Continue
Newbie mom to a Boot Camp graduate, now in Pensacola for A-School. He has asked us to send him his laptop, smart tv, and xbox, but at the same time is complaining about the WiFI in his room. Can anyone tell me or give me advice as to what the procedure is there for internet/WiFi in their rooms? Does he purchase something from them?
Any help and guidance is greatly appreciated...
