My son called me from A school in San Antonio, and said he's going to be a MA Riverine. I've looked it up, and now I really scared about what he will do.. How often are they sent out...what do they do on a daily.. the one good thing he got orders in our hometown..

Looking for the parents of a "Paul" on Ship 04 Div 038. I am not sure if you are on this site but I would like to talk to you. It looks like I will be adopting him for Thanksgiving and thought you could send a care package I could surprise him with. If you are out here. Please private message me with last name to confirm for privacy reasons.
I have manufacturing coupons that will expire at the end of this month. If I'm not wrong the military can use expired coupons six months after expiration date. What I need is the address to send the bundle too. Please if you know of someone or an address please send a message..
Thank you Diane…Continue

I'm confused. My husband joined as a green card holder and his recruiter said that he will get his citizenship in BC. He wanted to join as an officer, he has all the other qualifications, he has a bachelors degree in computer science but they placed him in E3 because of the his green card and thats ok for now. When it was time to pick a job, they didn't have jobs that he wanted to do like pastry chef, dental assistant (lol) etc. They said that if for any reason he doesn't get it in BC then…Continue

My son left for bootcamp Oct 6, on Oct 12 I think I got a call from him saying he was in the hospital. He fell and hit his head in his room, he has been in the hospital ever since with severe headaches and vertigo. He is unable to walk on his own because of the vertigo. I am losing it. I am able to call him whenever I want which is a blessing, but he never has any news about his condition. Anyone have any ideas for me on how to deal with this? I was prepared for him to leave, but I never…Continue
So my husband is active duty stationed here in Hawaii and we love it. However, before he enlisted I was going to enlist in the military. Currently my husband is deployed, but supports my endeavors to still enlist in the military, specifically the Navy because that is the branch he is in (obviously). I have talked to a recruiter here in Hawaii, but I scored pretty well on the high spectrum for the ASVAB so I feel like he wants me to "rush" into the navy process. My question, however, is…Continue
Please read the following Facebook post by Brian Kirby this evening. I can assure you I will not travel US Air and I encourage other military families to consider the event described when making your travel reservations! As a person who has travelled over one million miles in my career, I know there are better choices the flight attendant could have made. This should not be tolerated.

I can't find any current information about A School graduation. My daughter is in Pensacola FL. I loved the PIR ceremony and was wondering if A school was similar but I am guessing not. What goes on during the graduation. She said 31 sailors left boot camp for the same school so I know it is not a very big class... just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on A School graduation.
