My son got the call he was waiting for today. He was selected for pilot, a dream come true for him. We were walking across the University campus taking a few last photos when it happened, so we were together. He just graduated Saturday. Summa Cum Laude, Honors College. I am so proud of him. He could have done anything he wanted. This is what he wants. Now he has a month of study abroad in Chile left before OCS. I am so happy he will spend the month of June with us at home before all of this…Continue
My SR was in Ship 09 Div 170, he had a knee injury and now in Sip 04 Div 2341. How long does this take? Will he graduate? Does he go immediately to A school? Please help if you know any answers. Thanks
New navy mom here,
I've been reading the blogs of those moms who received the first call home and those who just said goodbye. It is comforting. My son ships out on July 15th and wonder if there are any other moms with that date also.
I am so excited for my Garret, but my heart is getting heavier and heavier as the days get closer. He is my baby of 2 and will miss him beyond words.
We dropped Bryce off at the Recruiters office today. He will go through prep and stay overnight. We will see his official swear in between 9am and 10am and be able to spend some time together until he leaves for his flight to the Great Lakes training center. Wow! It's here and it is happening. Sad and happy at the same time.
I got a call from my son today, I was at work and my cell range, I let it go to voice mail but it went off again. My client I was giving a hair cut to says someone wants to talk to you bad, so I picked up and heard HI MOM! OMG!!! I hope every Mom get's to heat those words soon.
He sounded so good, so up beat and happy. He had some dental work done. Said it wasn't to bad. …Continue
I had no idea how hard this was going to be. We took our son to the recruiters office yesterday morning. He did manage to give me a call last night from the hotel. This morning he will be officially swearing in and off to the Chicago. I know in my head this is a wonderful journey we are on . He is living his dream but my heart is so sad. I hope he gets a chance to call me while traveling today. Waiting for the scripted call tonight.
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?
