Stationed Overseas

Posted by Sonya209 on March 27, 2015 at 2:03pm 5 Comments

Hello Everyone!

This is my first blog post.  My son has been in the Navy for one year now and we just found out that his home port will be overseas.  How will we be able to communicate with him? I'm imagining the cell phone charges would be through the roof!  Do they get leave time after being overseas awhile???

Help!!! My son will be too far away!

Hello all - this is my first post. My boy leaves for the Navy tomorrow, he's so excited! As a single mom, I feel a sense of accomplishment......I'm also freaking out a little bit and I keep cleaning the house and rearranging furniture. I bought him a steak dinner and told him how proud I am of him!

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...
