Daughter leaving for RTC on 3/10/15

I am trying to decide if I will just tell her goodbye at the recruiter's office or go with her to MEPS (stay the night in the same hotel Monday night) and spend the last few hours with her before she goes.  I would appreciate any feedback you can give.

Worried recruiter is not telling my son the truth

My sons chief recruiter told him he doesn't have to send the DAR in every month. He says he's calling MEPS every day. My son also ask him about Full time support reserves and he said they were full. Really? That's hard to believe... I heard to many bad things about fireman pact to feel good about it. Or any pact job for that matter. My son was lied to at MEPS, that's why he took it in the first place. He was told there WAS an A school. Lie.. And was told it was a designated job also a lie.… Continue

Got a call from my SR about an hour ago. He sounded so good, so strong! I was beginning to think he wasn't going to get to call this weekend. I was so glad to hear his voice. I sure hope all of you got calls this weekend.

Last Week of Bootcamp

Well this is the last week of bootcamp for my recruit, I must say, I am one proud mom.  He has grown so much, and has flourished into a more brilliant and intelligent young man. He's liking it so far, and looking forward to what the USN has to offer him and ready to embrace it. I'm thankful for where God has brought him and where he is taking him. I can't wait to see him! I am so over joyed at this moment.  It wasn't easy, but so worth it. Like I tell him in the letters I've written,…

Heart Pain

Never realized how real that "pain" could feel when my baby--my youngest and my only son, informed me that he had enlisted in the Navy.  Of course, I knew it was a possibility.  He had spoken of joining the military many times while growing up. He was a "hero" when he was 2 years old.  He slept in his homeade batman cape and carried a sword tucked into a belt he swiped from my drawer on a daily basis.  At…

My son's first job

I'm so excited with N4M. I have been reading some of the blogs and I really find it so helpful.

My son swore in last week after he passed the MEPS and we will have our first meeting with his recruiter this afternoon. My son wanted to sign up for the IT job but the person who was incharge was not available to review his application. He was told at MEPS that he can sign up for a back up position so he can swear in that day and they will follow up on the IT position this week.
