Newly Commissioned

I am new to this site and to being an official Navy mom.  My son commissioned as an Ensign on Monday and I am way too proud of him to not share with other moms who understand just why I am so proud and excited.  Here's to his next big adventure in life!  Thank you for letting me brag a bit.  I hope all of you and your loved ones, especially your sons and daughters who have so graciously volunteered to serve, have a joyous holiday season and a happy and prosperous New Year.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows if the recruits that left last week for bootcamp might be allowed to call home on Christmas?  It will only be my sons 2nd week there, but I wondered if they would get that opportunity?   Any thoughts?  TIA :-)

Thinking about the Navy

Hi everyone, I am new to this site. My husband is considering joining the Navy very soon. Of course I am supportive and it is something he has wanted to do for a very long time. I have concerns because we have 3 small children and I know they will ask questions when he is away. Explaining to them why is hard for me also and another concern is moving away from much needed family/friends that we have here in our hometown.

I would really like any advice about Navy life and how you cope…

I got the call!

I received my scripted call at 9:00 EST.  She was so tongue-tied!  She sounded good though.  She had called me at about 6 and was getting something to eat before she checked in.  Now I have to wait 4 weeks to hear her voice again.

She is gone to RTC

My daughter left to RTC this past Wednesday, 12/3/14 & her recruiter told me he would have her address within 3 days. Now he claims he won't know it for another week or so.
I received her "box" today & no return address.
Anyone know if there is any way I can get her address or do I just wait?
