MA Riverines ?

My son called me from A school in San Antonio, and said he's going to be a MA Riverine. I've looked it up, and now I really scared about what he will do.. How often are they sent out...what do they do on a daily.. the one good thing he got orders in our hometown..

I've read alot of different things about writing letters and the recruits being able to write. So I was wondering if anyone knew for such. Are the recruits only able to write on Sundays? And do they receive mail everyday? And when they get mail can they read it when they get it?

Thank you Diane…

Navy day

History of Navy Day

Navy Day was established on October 27, 1922 by the Navy League of the United States. Although it was not a national holiday, Navy Day received special attention from President Warren Harding. Harding wrote to the Secretary of the Navy Edwin Denby:

"Thank you for your note which brings assurance of the notable success which seems certain to attend the celebration of Navy Day on Friday, October 27, in commemoration of past and present services of the Navy.…

A school question

I'm confused. My husband joined as a green card holder and his recruiter said that he will get his citizenship in BC. He wanted to join as an officer, he has all the other qualifications,  he has a bachelors degree in computer science but they placed him in E3 because of the his green card and thats ok for now. When it was time to pick a job, they didn't have jobs that he wanted to do like pastry chef, dental assistant (lol) etc. They said that if for any reason he doesn't get it in BC then…

PIR guests

I know each recruit is only allowed 4 guests but what if another recruit is only having 3 guests could another recruit use that 4th spot? Does anyone know?

How long does relating take?

Sorry for the length, but here goes. My son is a reservist in MA A school, but failed out. He is being put in holding while waiting to rerate at another A school. He said some guys said it could take a year or two. He's very upset, and doesn't want to wait around cleaning for a year. Is this likely?
He also said he won't get liberty and isn't allowed visitors. Is that true?

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…

Having a hard time

Hi everyone, my boyfriend left the 15th of October so it hasn't been very long but oh my gosh am I having a hard time i cry all the time still and i just miss him beyond words. Does it get easier? Does it go by fast? Because right now it feels like it's going by so slow like the days just couldn't end fast enough. I hate that I can't talk to him and and won't hear from him for like 3 weeks. I watched so many videos on YouTube about the training so I have some kind of an idea what he's going… Continue

Mil to Mil spouses , Colocation

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…

US Air, are you kidding us?!?

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.

A School Graduation

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.
