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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.
