My son graduated Navy boot camp today 3/27. He told me his corpsman school start date at Fort Sam is April 14th. I need help regarding graduation week from hospital corpsman training. What day of the week do they graduate and how should I plan my time off? Will I have a couple days with him before graduation? Will he leave the day after for his assignment or additional training? Let me know how you did it or what I should expect. Thank you so much!
This is my first blog post. My son has been in the Navy for one year now and we just found out that his home port will be overseas. How will we be able to communicate with him? I'm imagining the cell phone charges would be through the roof! Do they get leave time after being overseas awhile???
Help!!! My son will be too far away!
Just wanted to throw a little information out there, and had no idea where to put it, so I decided to just drop it here.
The last 2 years has been a whirlwind for us. Our son, who I thought had no interest in military service, decided to throw us a curve ball a couple of years ago, and set us all off on this journey. His mother and I had prepaid his college, years in advance. Even though he comes from a long line of military service, dating back to the Revolutionary War, I never…Continue
It has taken my daughter a year removed from High School to embark on her Navy journey. While I could not be more proud, I also admit to having some trepidations although that is purely self-motivated.
K met with the recruiters two weeks ago today. She was ready to sign any papers placed in front of her, the only lingering question was "what" she wanted to do. She had a great ACT score, so the possibilities seemed endless. Chief encouraged her to consider Nuclear Engineering, since so…Continue

I just got a call from my son!! So he said he only has 15 minutes and he would like to call his Dad also, then asked if I could be mindful of the time for him. His sister was with me at the time, so on to speaker phone he went...
He sounded a little bit like he was getting a cold, or recovering from a cold. He was very calm, and steady paced in his talking. He already sounds more mature. I immediately felt proud!
I remembered that they get loaded up with so many…Continue

He'll be home for just 10 days before he leaves for boot camp early next month. Already the preliminary meeting have brought about growth and excitement in my son that I'd not expected for months yet.
Uneasy about 2 months of non-communication while he's under stress? Absolutely; and yet, it's so clear that this is another way in which I'm being taught to trust and respect the young man he has become and is becoming.
For so many years I've thought that I needed to be the…Continue
