Cinder... strokes are scarry. Please take care of yourself at this time! You need to be at your best healthwise, so you can focus on what the Drs are saying and doing. I will keep you and your husband in my heart. I hope they figure things out soon.

Hi Cinder...How are you?  Just got back from a 9-day trip to see my son at Corry!  I drove his truck to him (along with his fiance') and have to say it was one of the greatest trips I've ever done...2125 miles and worth every second of driving! 

I believe you had asked how tough CTT school was...My son seems to be doing really good in his CTT class. It is tough but he finished middle of pack with his grades - either a 92 or 94%. He said the lowest score in the class was an 89%.  I have to laugh cuz this is a kid I could barely get thru high school and then he tested high on his entrance test! Figures...I always knew he had it in him!  He has finished A school and started C school this past week.  He will finish this on July 20 and then take 2 other short classes.  He is 6 year CTT so he did alot of the classified stuff in A school and now this is the maintenance part of the school and he said he likes it alot!  Has your son started school yet?

So sorry about the delay in your question! Would love to get together some time...we could meet half way!

Take care!  Kim

My son signed up for 6, how about yours?

I'm not really sure how he's doing. I've only gotten the 1 letter and 1 call. He usually muddles through, so I'm sure he's fine. But it would be nice to hear even a grunt in response to how are you doing?

Welcome to N4M’s. This site is full of information, support and encouragement. My son graduated boot camp Jan 29, 2010 and is now stationed in Sicily Italy as an IT.

If your profile or profile name contains last name (even if it is different from your rct/sailor)your rct/sailors first name or your e -mail address, I recommend that you change it for the safety of your sailor. Remember, this is a public site and anyone can read comments posted here.

Be wary of who you friend…before you accept a friend go to their page and see how active they are, the comments left, groups they’ve joined. If they have a lot of friends but no groups, no comments, click ignore and DO NOT FRIEND THEM…it is likely they are spammers, e-mail address harvesting

If you are a DEPer:
Please join the group , (just point and click on the http address) there you will find new N4M’S as well as more seasoned N4M’s to guide you along.

Join this group read some of the discussions for good info

There is a group for each month rcts leave "Leavin for Boot Camp in (month they leave)" search groups and join this will have info as well as connect you with other N4M's whose rcts leave that month.

Once you get your PIR (Pass In Review=graduation)date…search groups and join the PIR group..if it hasn’t been formed yet YOU may need to form it.

Go to YouTube and search Navy Racks, boot camp, graduaton, Battlestations 21 (CNN does it)

Explore this site as well…Forums, Groups and Videos and check out the “Main” tab…lots of good info
