I still haven't seen him since early April, but just to be able to text by phone or have an occasional conversation still seems like such a treat.  Oh my, he has changed.!

** UPDATE 6/12/15 ** Sailors who graduated and are now holdovers at RTC (HOLD OVER SHIP 5) are allowed to bring their cell phones back on Friday night after Graduation. This HAS BEEN CONFIRMED OFFICIALLY.

Welcome to our new Navy Family. Please take the time and read this document. It will be a life saver for you while you are here for the Navy Boot Camp Graduation. 

Please check the EVENTS tab and RSVP for the meet and greet for the week you are coming here for…
