Bumping up for new members. This is written with the Christmas holidays in mind, but much of the information applies all year.
With the holidays fast approaching, I see more and more moms who are stressed about whether they can see their sailor or not. Entirely understandable! But I know that the recruits in boot camp are quite confused also, many of them are new to all of this Navy stuff too, and haven't got the hang of the lingo, the paperwork and the inevitable Hurry Up and Wait… Continue

I am asking for any suggestions... My son has taken the asvab twice he took it 30 days ago scored a 34 he took it again and scored. 25. I bought him the Kaplan asvab study guide for the second time. He got a 60 at the recruiters center. My son has wanted to be in the navy since he was very young. This is his dream. He is 18, graduated from H.S. Last June. Was a A and B student, took some honors courses and did well. I don't know what to do for him, he obviously has trouble with computer tests.… Continue

The day has arrived for my son to leave. It came much to fast for me but he is very excited and I'm happy for that but I'm very sad. He doesn't want me to go to the airport tomorrow I want to but understand why he wants to say bye tonight. Did anyone go to airport or did most say bye at the hotel? Also does anyone have any idea what the approximate graduation date might be? If your son/daughter leaves tomorrow would you mind getting back to me maybe we could keep in touch. Thank you!! Continue

My husband left for basic and he made it there safe, he said he'll call me in 3 weeks. I remember his recruiter telling me about adding myself to his insurance, but I don't remember how long I was supposed to wait. Can someone tell me that and anything else I'm supposed to know or be doing?

So the time is almost here for my family and I do go to Chicago for my son's graduation and since he wont be home for Thanksgiving I wanted to know if anyone knew of any places near the graduation that may be able to provide a somewhat thanksgiving dinner or any ideas on how we can put this special day into what he will miss.

My daughter left on November 5th for boot camp. She was so excited to go because she had never been on a plane. We text back and forth up until she reported to boot camp. It made me feel better to hear the excitement and confidence in her voice, I know she made the right choice! I am still waiting on her package they send home and the information on graduation ceremonies. I worry about her as all moms do and it's the not knowing that driving me crazy.
