My SR left on 4/22 and should have ROM'd in RTC (yesterday was 2 weeks). Does anyone know the exact day of the week they start the new cycle for training? Wondering if he'll have to wait a few days to actually start, or if they start right away. Also I believe they test the recruits before they start training, if he tests positive would he be given an opportunity to call us? Missing him, and have anxiously been stalking the facebook page to see if I can see a picture of him:) He left…Continue
Need help ASAP! My son wrote just ship : triton on the letter but on the envelope he wrote “ship 12”.
I’ve already sent him letters and so have other family till i got on here and then went back and checked the envelope...
So which do I put???? Help!!!
I come from a family of hippies, tree huggers, make love not war. And I have been taught to question authority, stay away from any type of government and military lifestyle because the truth gets blurred.
I don’t actually agree with most of my families views but am not necessarily against it either. Obviously, paranoid thoughts about governmental agencies being bad are silly. And I respect the ones who fight to keep us safe so that others can sit in ignorance and privelage debating…
Hello everyone. I have a concern...a huge concern. Back in October 2020, my son was suicidal and I had to talk him out of it from 4000+miles away. He didn't go to the navy because he said you are black balled from there on and they don't help you anyway (there was multiple suicide attempts - us mother's talk, and one success 2 days into this deployment). When talking to him, he expressed problems with his petty office as one of his reasons for wanted to just "be done with this life." He…Continue
I haven't been on here in quite awhile and wanted to check in to let you know my Sailor graduated A School for OS with a 96% grade point average. He is now in San Diego for C school studying GCCS. I am soooo proud of my son!

My son departed for Boot Camp 1/5/21, obviously with the initial 2 weeks of ROM. I heard from him yesterday for his first call home to casually talk. It was great!!! And I have been on cloud nine since(just had to share)!! Anyone else's son/daughter in this group slated for a 3/19/21 graduation? Would love to connect.
Our son left on Thursday January 14, 2021 and arrived in the evening in Chicago IL. He did give us a very short call (1st I thought it was a machine so fast it went) and it was it. We can not write to him because we don't have the address of where he is staying. He did not write to us so far. I thought I was tough, but realize how mother like I am. It is a good thing, but it seams to come late. I miss him more than I thought. Does any one know when I can expect some news? I know that…Continue
Looking to connect with other families with a candidate in OCS 08-21. My son is a pilot candidate 1390. Anybody out there with a child in the same class?
I'm so glad I finally found this network! My son just finished bootcamp and arrived in Charleston Friday night. So far I have been happy to hear his voice 2 days in a row. But he'll be busy this week before he starts school.
Take care all who have loved ones in boot camp, it will seem like a long time but they will be proud of their accomplishment and happy to hear from you when they get that first chance. We only got one call from him when he arrived and…Continue
Hello All Moms,
Thank you all for making this emotional roller coaster journey a bit more manageable for my family. I wanted to give an update on our SR. His original graduation date was supposed to have been yesterday (9/11/20), but it had been pushed back due to second ROM, in less than two weeks after they started their training (his arrival date was 7/14/20) they were sent back as a whole unit to an even harder ROM than the first one. It was so hard watching PIR yesterday....Since…Continue
I feel like crying, but I guess I should wait until my son actually leaves. He doesn't leave until October 5 and I already miss him. I've been reading about what to do the month before my…
First things first.....New Moms.... Take a Deep Breath in....... Let it out...... Take another one......... Let it out....... Repeat continuously!!! Just keep breathing and it will all be OK!! We haven’t lost a mom to Boot camp yet, we won’t start with you.
If your Recruit has not left yet: have him or her leave you a voicemail message so when you just can't stand it you can hear their message (Over and Over and Over, Just don’t listen to it till…Continue
My son finished 14 day quarantine yesterday...still no word. I received his landed in Chicago call but now radio silence. Can anyone help ease this anxious mom’s mind? Thank you!
I would like to put a prayer on this wall for all of the Sailors and Civilians fighting the fire on USS Bonhomme Richard...Please God protect those who are fighting the fire onboard and around the USS Bonhomme Richard. Also please be with the Sailors and families at this time as the face uncertain times ahead. Amen.
