eljac913, I will ask my son if he knows of any apartments in the area. He is also stationed in Jax. Has he checked into base housing? My son was going to do off base housing but found it was cheaper to do on base.

Hi, my son is stationed in Jax and currently on deployment. When he comes back, he will be looking for an apartment. There are so many. Can anyone recommend one that is reasonable? Thank you.

Navymom2013 your son can travel on orders with his military ID. However if he is going out of country I recommend he at least sends for it before he leaves. You can get the forms online and he can take them filled out to the post office and they will take his pic and send off for it. He will need a original of his birth certificate. I filed out my son's for him and sent it to him at A school. He then did the rest. He may not know some of the info like where you and his dad were born. He can get it expedited if leaving soon it just costs more money. Some post offices take appointments only so I would check it out. Hope this helps. If your sailor wants to travel with friends he will need one.

My son's sub made my son get a passport because it it too dangerous to show military id in some countries.  He had to pay an expedite fee to get it in time for the boat leaving.

NavyMom, I could be wrong but I believe their military ID serves as their passport.
Comment by NavyMom2013 on October 4, 2014 at 2:15pm

How does a sailor go about getting a Passport for the 1st time?  Can it be done on base?  How long is it taking to receive it?  Is it better to have the address listed as mine so I can mail it to him due to him on the move with the Navy?  Thanks!!!

Any other Florida moms out there whose kids arrived in GL on 9/24?

The PIR is a very heart moving ceremony.  You really have something to look forward to.  It's incredible.

Welcome Zach's stepmom. I am in Jacksonville so a bit far from you. They normally get to have 4 at graduation. But if it will be a large group they may limit to 2. The tickets are not really tickets he has to put your name on the list to be able to get into graduation also know as PIR. And yes you have to pay your own way.
