I am new to this site, got accepted into N4M today but not really sure how to navigate. My daughter Sam leaves for BC June 18. Worried,proud and feeling lost at her leaving home. Sam is my youngest and I will have a hard time when she leaves. Any suggestions?
PIR in six days! I just can't wait to see my sailor (as he will be). They are wearing blues, not whites. I like that. There is nothing like a son in a great uniform to make a mama proud. I'm packing extra tissues. I'm pretty sure I'm going to cry a lot of happy tears.

My son just left for RTC. You would think I would be use to this, my oldest son graduated RTC in May of 2006, and since that time, is now in the Army stationed in Germany. But this is my youngest, and we are very close. I am happy for him. He loves the medical field and will be a Corpsman. His dreams are all coming through. But it is still hard already not having him here to talk to. I am happy and sad all at the same time.
Our son is graduating sometime in November (he leaves for boot on 9-9) and I just want to have an idea of a good, decent, inexpensive hotel near the base. Any ideas?
Hello Moms of PIR 2/28/14...Div 092, and other Divisions,
This is a FYI, I am not sure if most of you know that the (Facebook) page of the U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command has a wonderful page of tons of Division pictures of our kids in boot camp.How they post these is they throw out Trivia Tuesday questions,and the first one to guess it wins a published picture of a desired Division.I was fortunate to get a glimpse of my son,He is in Ship 14 Div. 092, so any Moms of this Div. Go…Continue
My husband and I went to see him swear in. I have rarely felt so moved in my life. I'm proud and sad and everything at once. We stayed with him at the airport until the last hour and half. He called from O'Hare and now we wait.
This is as hard as I thought it was going to be, but I know it is going to be worth it all.
As many of us in America have been affected by the economic crisis. My older daughter graduated from college with a big deb and us barely making it. My little one was the most affected. She slept in friends homes and my husband was struggling finding a job while living at my sister little apartment. Finally he moved to live with his sick mother and I went to do volunteer work in order to have a room and food. While my little one worked as a food server in a restaurant. She managed to get…Continue
You will hear faint noises, thinking it is them..walking through the door. See a reminder and their face pops in your head. You'll have a moment where you want to turn around laughing to share it with them and its empty space. Everyday I stand proud that raised such an amazing young woman. Everyday I cry hoping she doesn't feel lonely, praying she feels my love and takes strength from that. Everyday I want to hug and kiss her when she lays down at night. Everyday i want to hear her voice for…Continue
Please stop talking about ship movements on public forums. This is not only extremely DANGEROUS for our sailors but it can get their email cut off and shut them out from their loved ones for days weeks and months. So please SHUT UP about ship movements and future port of calls. Help keep our sailors safe so that they can return home. THANK YOU!
I have known this day was coming and have been mentally and physically preparing! Now they are forecasting a lot of snow to come on the day he goes so I will have to send him with his dad and a friend on the 1 1/2 hours drive to get him there in this 4-8 inches of snow they are forecasting. I was not prepared to say see ya later early! Why mother nature why? I know he will be fine, but I don't want to look like one of those parents who don't care! Melinda
Hello, my child is currently in boot camp and I have spoken to him twice (three including the "I arrived okay" call) and both my husband, daughter, and I have recieved a letter from him. The first call he seemed a bit down as well as his letters stating the PT part is what he expected and is fine with but the emotional part is really hard for him my SR has only been away and not seen us for 3 days but we still spoke with him every night. I have been strong around my SR and he has only seen…Continue
