Anxiously waiting for his form letter to come, and also his "kid in a box" We miss him, but are so very proud of him!
I can't believe it's Friday. This means 7 more to go. I can't remember when Friday's where so important to me. It's seems like pay day times 100.
I also got "the box" On Tuesday. My daughter called me at work and said oh in case you are wondering what we got for mail you got the famous "box " .I cried again but this time with a sense of relief knowing time is moving faster than I realized.
I just want to say my daughter has been a great help.She will come up to me and…Continue
Today was a great day, received another letter from my SR, he passed his RTC Assessment PFA n looks like he passed his PFA on Monday as well, he earned 2 ribbons "National Defense"(participation) and "Marksman". According to my SR I won't get a call tomorrow, glad he told me. But still I'm so proud of my son. Looking forward to PIR next week. I'm very excited. On end he told me to bring him his cellphone, lol.

When we started this NAVY journey, I had NO IDEA what I was in for. They don't have a "How to Survive Letting Go Of Your Child" pamphlet at the Recruitment Center. But, how could they? There's no way to tell a NAVY Mom/Dad that your heart will shatter into a billion little pieces, and swell with immense pride simultaneously. There's no timeline like the "Day By Day at Boot Camp" to help you get through your day by day. But, YOU DO. You feel as if the sadness will swallow you whole when…Continue
My Daughter swore in last friday and got a ship out date of January 19, 2016. Yesterday at her 72 hour "indoc" her recruiter asked her if she wanted to leave early. She asked how early.... and he said "would you be ready to go in like 3 weeks.... early?" She was in an 11 month waiver debaucle with the Airforce - so she is more than excited and willing to go - like NOW! But I was just wondering how realistic is that? Do you really think they might move up her ship out date? Mom's just…Continue
I have a question. My daughter is in Norfolk and she purchased a car there. It's titled there, but her permanent address is with me in Wisconsin. Since she has it titled there, she cannot be on our auto insurance. How can she transfer that car to Wisconsin, her permanent address, so that she can be back on our auto insurance? And will she have to get new plates that show Wisconsin and not Virginia? I figured I would ask you all before I called the DMV to inquire. Thanks!
Hi new friends - this is my first time on the site. My daughter, Gabrielle, swore in on friday of last week and took the job of GSE. I've been a single mom most of her life and neither of us really know or understand what her job will be? Will it be a very physical job? Will the training be hard for someone with no real experience in this area? Her job counselor told her it was a great job? Anybody with a daughter in this field with any information would be very much…Continue
Not likely to happen, but nice to be board eligible anyway.
Its the only thing that might keep CryptoGirl on active duty.

Well I got the form letter from my son today with the graduation date on it. Someone mentioned that we should book the Navy Lodge? How do I do that?
Another overwhelming day. My son left for boot camp today.It's not just him leaving for the Navy it's the life as I know it gone. There will be no more school activities,no making sure he is home at night or seeing him off for the day.The dinners at night the vacations as a family.And so much more.This is a chapter closed for my son and us.I know a new one opens but this is a hard one to turn the page quick. And for the first time ever I saw my husband really cry. I know with time I will…Continue
I've been searching and can't seem to find any current (more recent than 2011) pricing information and/or links about ordering picture/dvd packages. I want to be sure my son gets an order in with enough copies to go around - LOL!
Thanks in advance!
Counting down by days almost, my baby has been gone 5 weeks and in 3 more he no longer will be my little man, he become a man standing up for the freedom of his nation. Nothing can make me more proud of my son. He always has been a hard working student, stay out of trouble and achieving big things during his school time. I remember one time getting a letter in the mail stating one of his highschool teachers had…Continue
