Sean the Sailors Mom: Thank you! They will be stronger due to this experience, but it was hard to be the loved ones at home! Enjoy your phone call that should happen today! Prayers are with you and your family too! My SR is also a Shawn...just spelled differently!
Hi, since you have an SR at the RTC, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted". I see you have joined San Antonio MA's; the discussion, Break down week by week, will let you know what happens at NTTC Lackland (San Antonio). MA is a rating very dear to my heart since my Sailor is an MA. You will also want to join MAA Moms. Other groups to check out are New MAA Mom's (it has not been very active) and Security Sailors (it is not as active and includes loved ones of Sailors from other ratings as well). The Rating Information Card for MA can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/enlisted/rating_info_cards/ma.pdf. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
