First Deployment - what about phone?

Posted by Vickie360 on March 4, 2015 at 12:27am 3 Comments

My son will go on his first deployment and I need to know about options for phones.  Should we get an "interntional plan" on his existing phone or should he get a "pay as you go" phone...If he takes his phone, what should he turn off so we don't get all kinds of charges?  If he uses the ship's phones, do they have access to it often?  Should he take his computer on the ship?  I have so many questions about how we will communicate while he is gone and how we should pay...

College while on active duty

Posted by BertH on March 4, 2015 at 4:43pm 4 Comments

Have anyone had any experience with the educational benefits that are available for those on active duty-and do spouses have any? I am trying to be encouraging to my son (and his wife) but also don't want to "nag". But I would like to suggest some realistic options for them.

Ok it's been 10 days since my daughter left and still no form letter!!! What the heck! Is this normal and when do I start to worry that it's lost? So disappointing to see an empty mailbox, :(
