Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

Hello, Tricia! My son was grateful for getting a small bottle of Dan dish soap and baby shampoo for his OC spray day. You can mail that to her - or have a small travel size for her to take. I have been OC sprayed for work before - and these two are helpful when hopping in the shower after the "fun" is over. Also, she can have her phone - so if you meet her at the airport, she can put it in her bag - or you can mail that as well (along with a laptop).

My son has been in MA for about four weeks and is finally able to wear civilian clothes - (she will have to get to phase two do wear them) - I mailed him some new stuff through Amazon since all of his old - he had "outgrown" :) Good luck to your daughter and congrats!

Hello! My son graduates MA Aug. 9 at LAFB. Then he is off to Oceana, VA - where happily he is 37 minutes from his best friend who is at Newport News also serving in the Navy!

YokeNavymom, I'm wondering if your son is on the same base as mine? My son is MA.
Comment by Micka on June 7, 2016 at 9:54pm
YokeNavyMom, my son does work at an SWF with Marines. He does not do gate, perimeter, or patrol duties outside of this area. He guards this area only and is on a RTT team with the Marines. They protect and are trained to retrieve our Nuke weapons if stolen. Your sailor can qualify to guard nukes my he team is different. Last my son told me there are only 3 Sailors on it, my son being one of them.

YokeNavyMom, he will have whatever duties are needed--gate duty, perimeter patrol, patrol, guard duty,  and/or other duties as needed.
