Sorry I do not go on this website much. Im probably a little late on "tips" for corpsman. At first Michael didnt think he could do it. He had someone pass away the second day he was on the floor. I felt so bad for him. Just tell your son to hang in there it get easier as time goes on.
My son just started FMTB @ Camp Pendleton, I missed his call last night by 2 minutes. He said he hates it but know that it will get better as time goes on. I guess they  "muster" all the time.

Good luck and have a great day :-)

Sorry I was so slow accepting your friend request. We just got back from PIR.

Hi Hunters mom, I know the feeling when they leave for boot camp, it is hard to let them go, my son joined the navy at 21, he was married and could not find a good paying job. He has been in now for 11 years, he is a LPO fireman, he has been gone for 8month deployment, and we hope to see him soon, I have not seen him in 2 years. Once your son is put on a ship, they have their own navy mom for that specific ship. I know it is hard to say goodby, but I know he is making a good choice going into the Navy. I will pray for you both. You won't believe how much they grow in the Navy.
