Hello
We look forward to hearing about your sailors journey. How he/she likes being an MAA (MA) and which kind of job they are doing and how you are doing knowing what your sailor does for a living.
NOTE: Please help keep our sailors safe. Don't give out exact locations.Example: If he/she is in Iraq you can say Iraq but I would not say the name of the camp or a town near the camp. If they are on a ship don't give the last known location. Although some of that is public we don't in anyway want to jeopardize them.

Often if there is a question concerning security clearance, then the Sailor will be offered stateside orders.

Hello all! Newbie here! My daughter got to A school last Saturday and I am happy to report she is doing amazing and loves it so far. I, on the other hand am still trying to keep my head from spinning and trying to get ahold of my emotions. How can we be so incredibly proud and terrified all at the same time?!?! Lol! We made it through RTC and we will make it through A school too! I understand that she is in holding for a week and then will class up and begin her journey to phase 1. My question lies in the area of obtaining clearance and orders for her first command. I understand that orders may come as soon as all the prerequisites are done..ie: the oc spray, physical qualms etc. If they receive orders before they receive the clearance info and there is some sort of discrepancy there, what happens then? Thanks in advance for any light you may be able to shine on this for me!

if I remember correctly it was only a few days before graduation. He actually made and paid for his own flight. He was eager to come home and few out right after graduation. The flight they were going to give him left the next day and he couldn't wait!
Comment by Proud Navy Mom on March 7, 2015 at 7:43pm
