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.

Does anyone know about the food situation on base and how that works? Thanks 

Comment by Edwards19 ( Tricia ) on Tuesday

ok Thank you I will do some research 

Comment by Kylesmom on Tuesday
You could always check with where ever she will schedule her appointment. My Son went to our post office. The lady there was really helpful. They should have a 1-800 number for questions but I just checked the site and they don't seem to.
Comment by Edwards19 ( Tricia ) on Tuesday

She is not in school she leaves the 18th of May  so I am not sure.. She is not working now. but she does sub so I guess I can put that since she is active that way 

Comment by Kylesmom on Tuesday
When I got my Son's I put what his job was then. If they are still in school you can put student. The lady at the post office said it would not make a difference because they are good for several years. You will update the job when they renew.

lemonelephant, What do we put on the occupation part for Passport? My daughter has not left to BC yet

Comment by lemonelephant on April 29, 2016 at 2:58pm

Tricia, it is suggested to have a civilian passport. It is not absolutely necessary, but is helpful.

Comment by Edwards19 ( Tricia ) on April 29, 2016 at 12:53pm

lemonelehant   so I was told by my daughters Recruiter that she did not need a Passport. I know she can travel on orders, but what if she is out of country and has to come home alone or private issues? any thoughts? 

Comment by Edwards19 ( Tricia ) on April 29, 2016 at 12:15pm

great THANK you .. I think we only get the PIR afternoon with her, so would love to visit her on base to break up the long wait 

Comment by lemonelephant on April 28, 2016 at 1:40am

Tricia, yes, loved ones can visit the Sailor on base during "A" School if the Sailor is not in class or on duty. If the Sailor has Phased up to Phase II, then the Sailor is able to leave the base for Liberty. See Break down week by week.
