Comment by Blondie on Friday

spyder sounds fun and Nov. isn't that far away Yeah!!!

Catsmom, if I had to describe my job. I do Everything!  Why do you ask?  hahah  wow they have nerve.  Hope ou got rain but no storms.

Charliedog,  a lot going on in her life right now.  Navy should move her and have info about car...she will likely have to stay on base for a month or so...  not sure about hubby, my sailor is not allowed to marry without permission and then....I'd say he'd have to live off base my sailor had to advance before she could get private housing....but things have changed in the past 7 years and she wasn't married.

Jean, you can come anytime.

Splash, nervous is normal.  sorry to tell you it gets worse as it gets closer.  Leave nothing unsaid, make memories and get plenty of HUGS!  We are here for ya

Comment by Jean on Friday

The Washington site is very good. They will be able to help you with everything's. I live there and have seen a lot of question go through that site. 

Comment by andrea on Thursday

Charliedog, my daughter was stationed at Kitsap..Bremerton (but she is out now) she came home on leave after A-School and picked up her car and belongings. She wasn't married yet so she only had her clothes LOL she was assigned a barracks room.  I'm guessing from your post that he's a civilian? If that is the case I don't think she can apply for base housing (if that's something they are interested in) until they are and there could be a waiting list.  Otherwise she will have to look for an apt off base. Unfortunately, sponsors aren't always that great...like anything just depends on dedication/maturity of the person assigned to her.  Rachael had no help from her sponsor what so ever.  She may want to try to contact Kitsap herself for any info including the Fleet and Family Readiness... if they can't answer her questions they may be able to point her in the right direction.  Also as Anna suggested her current base maybe able to answer some of the questions or give her contact info. 

Comment by Anna on Thursday

Charliedog,

Welcome!!!  Hope I can help a little bit.  My daughter was stationed at Kitsap from 2009-2013.  She lived in housing there but then moved into her own apartment off base.  There are a couple car companies that will haul cars across the country.  I'm sure if you do some internet research you can find one.  I can't remember any of the names of the companies off hand.  I can ask my daughter about how to go about signing up for housing if you'd like.  She is not there anymore but can probably still provide some info.  She worked at PSD which is just outside the main gate.

Did your daughter have a PCS move since joining?  I assume she is just finishing A school.  If she hasn't had a move yet then she is entitled to have the Navy move her stuff.  But her move can only be from her home of record or her A school, to her next duty assignment.  She should contact PSD at her A school.  As far as her husband, I really couldn't say how soon she would get into base housing, or if they want to look for apartments off base.  I know Silverdale has some nice places. 

Also, check out a group on here called Washington and Oregon.  Here is the link to it.

http://navyformoms.com/group/washingtonoregon

You can read some of the discussions on that group and may find some answers to some of your questions.  Join that group and post your questions there also.  They are a wonderful group of Moms!!!!

Let me know what else I can help you with.  Good luck to your daughter.

Comment by Charliedog MAA on Thursday

I have posted my question in other forums but wanted to post here as well.  the more information I can get the better!

Hello All.  I don't know if I am on the right group to be asking my question, but thought I would give it a shot.  My daughter got her orders for Kitsap..We are wondering what is the procedure for getting her car out there and moving some of her furniture.  Will she be assigned to housing right away?  Also, she is planning on getting married in between A school and arriving at Kitsap - I am trying to postpone this, but she is very headstrong.  Does anyone know if she just shows up with her new husband?  Does he wait until she gets housing.  She has tried talking to her sponsor in San Antonio but not getting much help. She is so busy with school and is extremely stressed out about how all this works. I am trying to help by doing research but I can find any specific answers..

Good Morning to Everyone.

Comment by Anna on Wednesday

splash,

Welcome!!  glad you stopped in!!  I know you must be getting nervous, that day will be here before you know it and you'll wonder how did all that time fly by??  Then when she is gone time will seem to crawl by until you get to see her again!!!!  We Know!!!  Makes no sense!!!  But let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we can help you out with them!!!

Jean,

Everyone's weather seems to be so screwed up lately!!  Dry has to feel very strange for you in the Pacific NW!!!  Yeah, I had thyroid problems when I was in my 20's and so did my sister.  I had a pretty strong feeling my daughter's would have problems too and sure enough it hit Jenn all of a sudden this month!!!!  Talk about sucky timing!!!  Catherine is getting herself tested but so far she is not showing any symptoms.  At least Jennifer caught her's early and I know it's 100% treatable, they just have to get her in and get her treated!!!

And yes Catsmom,  she will be ready to kick some a$$ then when she gets back!!!!  I'm glad things are being addressed there at work for you.  Good for the new lady in backing you up!!!  Gosh, there may be hope????

spyder,

Sorry your daughter's visit is ending.  November isn't far away!!!  When do you start the next countdown????

Ampingitup,

Have you heard from your girl lately??  How is she doing??

Comment by splash on Wednesday

My daughter leaves for boot camp Oct 6th. I am getting really nervous.

Comment by Jean on Wednesday

Good Morning to Everyone.

We finally got some rain. It isn't here to stay though. Which is very strange for us. Our fall is usually very wet so is our winter, spring and part of summer.LOL. 

Catsmom, I see that the low that is bring us rain is dipping down to San Francisco. Maybe it will go a little bit more South and cool you guys off. 

Anna, Hope Jenn gets some rest. I have had thyroid problems and they are not nice. When mine where in full swing I was on 28 different kinds of meds to help make it work right. 

Blondie, sorry work is even harder now with your help. I wish I could of come over there and taken the job. Then you wouldn't of had to deal with a twit. LOL.
