My son left for Boot-camp 4/14. His graduation date is June 6, I made hotel reservations the day I got the form letter and mailed him several letters the next day. He is assigned to Ship 13 Div 195. Would love to connect with others who have sons or daughters in this unit.
My SR sent me a letter, got it today! It made my day. That is after I quit crying. Hang in there Moms and Dads, I know our Son's and Daughter's are. My SR's letter was upbeat and positive. He says they have a lot of time to read the letters at night and not to skimp on them, they help more than we know.

One more online class, macroeconomics, and my Sailor will have earned her Bachelors degree from Southern New Hampshire University! She's been on the east coast, west coast and the far side of the world and by the end of the summer she will have a degree in Business Admin from a college less than 3 miles from home.
Bad news is that she has used up her …Continue
I had no idea how hard this was going to be. We took our son to the recruiters office yesterday morning. He did manage to give me a call last night from the hotel. This morning he will be officially swearing in and off to the Chicago. I know in my head this is a wonderful journey we are on . He is living his dream but my heart is so sad. I hope he gets a chance to call me while traveling today. Waiting for the scripted call tonight.
My husband and I took our son to the recruiters office this moring to send him off. We got to spend about an hour with him before the shuttle bus came to take him to Jax. I tried not to cry but needless to say that did not happen. The tears come in waves ok for a bit than it hits you like to brick wall. You cry a little than try to assume your day. This was so much harder than I had expected. Looking forward to getting the form letter so I can start sending letters.

Anyone else who's son or daughter went to bootcamp on 4/10? Still waiting for this "letter". All i received was his "box" so far.
He left 10 days ago....... We have our hotel and flight set. I was told to get refundable tickets, WOW! the cost is 3 times the amount of a ticket. So I went with South West Air if you need to change your date they charge 10% of the ticket cost. That is $41 bucks for us or we could pay an extra $700 ish for a refundable one. Ummmmm, No thank you. Ha! …Continue
My son just got picked up for EOD this week. His original ship date was June 12th but this will change now that he has a new contract. Does anyone know if ship dates are moved up or moved out after signing new contracts?
Jace's sister had her baby. :) So Jace's Dad called emergency services some how to let him know. Well that got him a quick call. He said that he was very emotional. He had calmed down at the end of the call and told his Dad there were only two processing days left.
I'm not sure how I feel at this point. I want to go hug him and tell…Continue
A friend of mine can see her son's book camp pictures on facebook. Is this possible?
I am new to this site, got accepted into N4M today but not really sure how to navigate. My daughter Sam leaves for BC June 18. Worried,proud and feeling lost at her leaving home. Sam is my youngest and I will have a hard time when she leaves. Any suggestions?
A week ago today, we took our SR down to the office and said goodbye. I can't believe it's been a week now. Maybe time will go faster than I thought it would.
We had a family camp event to go to the next day. Although I did miss him not being there, it was a nice distraction for me. There was a vendor out at the venue that had Bacon Lemonade, Shark on a stick and Alligator. My SR would be the first one to jump up and say "Challenge accepted.. I'll eat that.." He is never afraid to be…Continue
