My son has never used tobacco, but when he was at NNPTC he said that the "Smoke Pit" was where you went if you wanted to find out what was going on. :) 

Comment by sailormom on January 21, 2016 at 10:17am

Thanks Redwind - I just wasn't sure if it was a privilege that they had to phase up to.  He uses chew, not cigarettes. 

Comment by Redwind on January 21, 2016 at 8:53am

sailormom we jsut had a visit to Goose Creek.  There was a smoking location.  Not sure how many.

Comment by sailormom on January 21, 2016 at 7:42am

My son's PIR is 29 JAN and we believe he is going to Goose Creek for A school (some BC questions about his past medical history is the reason I'm not certain) - when he sent me a list of what to bring to PIR, he listed tobacco.  I have read the rules for Goose Creek and I understand he is not allowed alcohol for a period of time, but it doesn't say tobacco is forbidden.  Can anyone confirm either way?  I don't want to bring it with me to the airport if he is not allowed to have it at all until some period after arriving in Goose Creek.  Thank you!

Dittersmom - my son is also on the George Washington!  He's (finally) home on his leave right now - but driving back Sunday from sw Ohio.....hopefully behind this big snow & roads being pretty cleared(praying).  One of the guys said he could pay a small rent to live with him for a month - he'll have his 4 year anniv. in March & will then be eligible for housing pay.

Comment by Dittersmom on January 21, 2016 at 3:28am
Ditter is on the Washington. All of the young men that are renting dont get base housing pay, but with enough renting together it is affordable. He says that they are going to do some underways, but when they are back on land they want to be off the boat. PacNWmom glad you have someone using the room.

Newbie17, I've heard of prototype lasting anywhere from 5 months to just over 1 year at Ballston Spa. One advantage they have there is that they can do a lot of the work on a nuke plant simulator (the simulator can actually model many scenarios that they cannot, for safety reasons, run on an actual plant.) Then when the live reactors are up, they push through as many sailors as they can for their actual reactor watch qualifications. In any case, you will probably not be booking your trip very far in advance. :)  It is a beautiful area, though.

Darlene nuke mom ny, I think I sent you a friend request message. Let me know if it worked. Thanks.

The jeweler I bought it from replaced it for cost.
Comment by NancyJo (CVN70) on January 20, 2016 at 4:59pm

COTwin that makes me so sad. But unfortunately, not everyone is honest. A guy here at work is an Air Force veteran who lost a plaque he had been awarded back in the 80's. He was awarded the plaque in Turkey and when he was transferred to England the box that he shipped it in was lost. Lo and behold he was cruising around on eBay recently and found his plaque complete with identifying information being sold. Turns out that the man who had it here stateside had bought it from someone in England some years back. It was just a crazy twist of chance that he saw it. He still had to pay to get it back but the gentleman selling it reduced the price significantly. I'm so glad he got it back. Most stolen stuff is never seen again.
