Leaving for A School

My son graduated Boot Camp yesterday. He was supposed to have the weekend with us but Thursday they told him he was leaving at 3am early Saturday morning. You can imagine my sadness when he told me this. It was too early to meet him at the airport. I am from Nevada and totally lost in Chicago. I have been waiting to hear from him and going crazy. Does anyone know how long before he can use a phone call to me? I just want to know he made it ok and get the address so I can send his phone.

Thank you

Hi, my high school senior recently enlisted and as much as I knew it was going to happen and was so proud, when it came down to the day, I was so upset.

phone card question

Hi there, my son left for BC on 9-13-15. Other than the 20 second phone call from him, I haven't heard anymore from him. Waiting for his form letter with his PIR date to come in the mail with his address so i can begin writing him.  I have read some other blogs on here regarding his second phone call and I was wondering, do I have to mail him a prepaid phone card in order for him to call us again, or will he be able to make that call another way? Just wanted to get some answers before i…

@ Samantha's mom,I'm glad you got the call.. I also received my daughter's call yesterday evening and it felt GREAT!! She remained pretty strong until she heard my voice and we both broke down together. Out of my three she is my only daughter and we have a very tight bond. Can't wait to see her and give her the tightest hug ever..

Please give me advice/input!!

Dear all navy moms and other members. I am in desperate need of some advice and all input is welcome. 

I am a 19 year old male that is currently thinking about joining the navy, I am interested in traveling the world and meeting new people and hopefully learning a lot of new skills. I do have a lot of doubts though. My mom (being like most moms) is very concerned and obviously doesn't want to see her last born leave and go into the navy so she doesn't give me a lot of…

My daughter left for bootcamp on 26/8/15. Does anyone know of anyone in division 359? Today marks 3 weeks since she left and I'm trying to wait patiently for her call but it's truly hard. I know NO news is good news but I just can't wait to hear her voice. How long is the call?
