Ship 11/180 Moms AFTER Bootcamp

Moms/Wives of 11/180:  We were great support for each other during boot camp.  Let's keep in touch and update each other on how our sailors are doing.  PIR was awesome, but liberty was too short.

Laurelbc aa/180, thank you for your interest in joining the Los Angeles Region.  Please go to groups and join Los Angeles Region so that you will receive notices of up coming events and to get to know other local Navy moms.  We have only been on line for 24 hours and we already have 8 members, this is exciting.  We are looking forward to our first Meet & Greet in January, 2012.Elizabeth

Hi Laurel, just 25 days until we leave for the graduation. Time is going by quickly now, (at least it is for us). The boys sounded upbeat yesterday and looking forward to their graduation and to seeing all of us. They mentioned grad and go, but still hoping and crossing my fingers that since both of their A schools are in Great Lakes, and it is a holiday weekend, that we will get plenty of time with them. Hope that your son is doing well also.

Hello, yes I am so proud of Brandon! He is my oldest and I had him very young, he is very special to me. All my kids are special but you know what I mean, right?  Seems like it was just yesterday I was being told that I needed to through him away because I was to young and would not be able to take care of him. Thank the Lord I did not listen to the WORLD!

 PIR will be here before we know it!

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 http://www.navyformoms.com/group/bootcampmoms , (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 http://www.navyformoms.com/group/deppersinbutnotyet 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 group...it 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
