Sad Situation

Posted by TeamC on December 8, 2015 at 11:13pm 6 Comments

Has anyone ever gotten a call saying that your son or daughter has been moved to another division and will not graduate with her unit. I got that call tonight. She said mom, I tried my best. She was so hurt and it's all because she can't pass that dang prone float. I was really excited & looking forward to Friday. Now I have to cancel airfare, hotel,etc. I wish it was a way they would let the recruits graduate and then stay until that area is complete. She's come so far & now this. Can… Continue

Graduation Gifts for OCS

Posted by AlohaMom on December 6, 2015 at 7:06pm 4 Comments


So proud my son will graduate on Dec. 18!  It's been a very long haul (started in July) - first he was NPQ'd for Aviation due to vision issues, then he declined an offer to join the Civil Eng Corps - because he wanted to try for Oceanography - and he got it!! It's all turned out beautifully, and Mom is Very Proud.

Question, any ideas what kind of gift to give at commissioning?  Ideas and suggestions welcome!

My thanks -

Deb - Proud Navy…

12/1 "I Swear"

Posted by Jake's Mom (Shell1970) on December 3, 2015 at 4:49am 2 Comments

Yesterday he swore in; he flew out a few hours later and is now doing basic ... So proud!  I gotta say it ... these are the strangest emotions!  He's been married 3 years and out on his own, has a baby on the way, and I've got these emotions that make this mess of pride and sadness.  I've been told I'm suppose to and this is normal ... WEirD and WoW!
