My Grandson in A School at Pensacola, FL. He says he graduates Sept 14, 2016. Is there any event after finishing A School? I do not want him to be without family if there is. He thinks he will have leave and then will be back for C School. Can anyone tell me difference between A School and C School? What is after C School? I am really new with this Navy life but hey I made it thru his boot camp and that graduation was awesome!

I'm writing this with a broken heart...My daughter was struggling with some separation anxiety in regards to leaving her family and her boyfriend. The Navy decided to cancel her contract saying that she is a risk. They don't want her to get to bootcamp and be sent home because of separation anxiety. I'm devastated and wish I could push her through this initial scary part of leaving her loved ones.
Nobody ever wants to imagine it, but if you have found that your significant other has suffered from a disabling injury, your relationship will be changing in many ways. No matter what line of work you’re in this is always a potential risk, especially in the military. So despite that…Continue

My son is in the separation process from bootcamp due to a medical issue. Does anyone know how long the entire process can take?
Our son has been at bootcamp almost 3 weeks now and called yesterday and says it wants to come home. He said he was depressed, anxiety out the roof, and not sleeping. He said he was going to talk to someone on Monday and tell them he wants to go home. He said if he had to he would fake an injury. This is the same person who has wanted to join the navy since the sixth grade! I truly believe he needs to give it a couple of more weeks and see how he feels at that time. Everything I have read…Continue
Any family members of sailors the USS Lake Champlain (CG 57). My son was assigned there last month and I would love to connect with other family members. Please join me over at the USS Lake Champlain group.
The break-up of a marriage is one of the most difficult things to endure. It is the end of a union between two people who once came together in love to build a future around each other’s dreams, hopes, and expectations. There are many reasons for a divorce, including extramarital affairs, financial issues, domestic abuse, the loss of a child, and irreconcilable differences between two people who have simply grown apart. Divorce is never easy, and it’s important to…Continue
All U.S. Navy sailors in Japan are banned from drinking alcohol and restricted to base except for essential trips after several recent alcohol-related incidents which the Navy's 7th Fleet said are harming U.S.-Japan relations.
"Effective immediately, sailors are prohibited from drinking alcohol, on and off base. Additionally, all off-base liberty will be curtailed," a statement from the 7th Fleet and U.S. Naval Forces Japan said Monday.
"These measures are not taken…Continue

I just received a call from my SR son, he's been in boot camp a couple of weeks now. The reason he was allowed to call was for his security clearance, and they needed him to call and ask for a couple of thing's. In that phone call I asked if he was free to talk a little bit and he said "ya sure". I asked him how he was doing and he said was fine, but then he started to not sound "fine", he said " I'm doing this for you and dad". I noticed his voice sounded terrible, like he had a…Continue
Hello, without getting into too much detail has anyone's son/daughter date been pushed back to leave for boot camp? Or has not received a date due to recruiting office not getting the date from MEPS? We have been waiting over 30days! Please let me know. Thank you!
As a new Navy mom and a self-proclaimed expert planner, the unknowns of Navy PIR weekend were making me crazy! Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy surprises, just not when they affect the few hours that I get to spend with my new Sailor who I have been missing greatly for two months (I know you can all relate!).
This site (NavyForMoms.com) was a savior in the seemingly never-ending amount of information, tips, advice, and support during my son's time at RTC. The problem is that once I read…Continue
These days, it seems as though it’s never too early to help your teenage son or daughter prepare for his or her future. Teens and young adults who strive for academic excellence, wish to build their confidence, secure a fulfilling future, and want to show dedication to their country may find a perfect fit and benefit from enrolling in a program like NROTC (Navy Reserves Officer’s Training Corps). If your son or daughter has expressed interest in joining the U.S. Navy, NROTC…Continue
I am blogging about this because it is information every fiance or newly married Navy spouse needs to know. Anyone with first hand experience, please add comments, and correct me if I have incorrect information or have forgotten an important detail.
When a sailor gets orders overseas, and I include Hawaii in this, he will receive orders which are either "Accompanied" or "Unaccompanied". Basically, with or without dependents. In order for the dependents to move overseas at the…
