I am originally from Mexico. I immigrated to the U.S. when I was 17 years old. After a lot of effort and dedication, I obtained my bachelor's degree and Master's Degree. I am a High School Spanish Teacher now. I've been in the Education Field for 5 years.

What is your recruit’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. I have info on all of the ratings and fields and the PACT programs.
Divisions287 and 288are brother divisions and train together and will haveBattle Stations-21 (BST)together, so look for others with loved ones in either division. Write to your recruit and ask whenBattle Stations-21 (BST)will be so you will know when to expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call.
If you would like information on your future Sailor’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field, then let me know the rating or field. There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

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!!
