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.

My son got his cell phone back right after PIR. Yes he will be taking it to A school.

Hi do they get cell phones once they are at A school?

Comment by lemonelephant on July 30, 2015 at 2:17am

Elizabeth, it is very unlikely for your Sailor to fly out on Sunday. That happened years ago, but not now. Now there are typically enough seats on Saturday flights between O'Hare and Midway.

Comment by Elizabeth on July 28, 2015 at 4:35pm
Hello, have any of you experienced your Sailor flying out to A school on a Sunday? (departing Great Lakes after PIR) I am wondering how common this is for Sailors shipping out to San Antonio... Thanks!
Comment by loveispatient on June 17, 2015 at 12:32pm

My Sailor will be going to training in about a month for mobile security on the east coast. He is hopping that I can come and visit him there, but hasn't been able to ask anyone yet. Does anyone know if that is possible?

dori, I left info for you on your My Page.

Comment by dori on May 18, 2015 at 6:59pm
Ok I'm kind of lost with my son's job description...maybe you can help. He just got his orders and will be heading to Bahrain (CRG-2)? And of course I'm on freak out mode :(

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

Comment by Barbara on April 14, 2015 at 6:59pm
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 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!
