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.
My son is at boot right now and graduates on oct. 24th. He called to let us know that he has accepted a 2 yr. commission on the USS Constitution in Boston. We are really excited for him ,but would like some input from other mom's whos child has gone to "old Ironsides". Any information would really be helpful!
I'm new to the site and my son is scheduled to graduate on October 24. Are there any moms out there with sons or daughters in ship 4 division 337 or graduating on the same date? I've gotten a total of 3 calls from my son since he left (including the quick one when he arrived) and 2 letters. I've tried to write him often and send him news articles, etc, to keep him connected with home. I am so looking forward to seeing him at graduation!
I am new to the blog and to being a navy mom,it has been difficult without my son at home but i am dealing with it,but i was wondering if anyone has PIR 31 oct 14 and ship 13 div 351.
So every time I have felt a little bit sad or down recently, I have thought of my mom. I miss her so much! I moved to Pensacola with my husband, and she lives in Virginia. My husband tries to comfort me, but I really want her advise. And her hugs. He thinks I'm missing her a lot because its near the holidays. This could be true.
At the current moment we don't know where we will be stationed after he is done school. I really hope it is back in Virginia!
I am new to this site. However, I heard there are a lot of families for the USS Jason Dunham on here. I am the new Treasurer for the FRG. We are up and running! We currently have a few fundraisers going on for the Dunham families. Please contact me if you are interested or part of the Dunham family.
They changed his date for bc to jan. kinda good he gets to spend holidays here.

I need help! My daughter has been deployed for almost a year...has been on active duty for 15+ months. She is undesignated. I just spoke with her and she says she is not rated and they have 10 days to rate her or she will be able to come home after deployment. If they rate her then she will continue to serve. I seriously don't understand any of this. Can someone explain it to me?
My son arrived on September 22. Anyone else have the same ship and division??
My son just swore into Dep yesterday. looking for family members of othe Aerographer Mates.
