"Momof3. I don't think I could go thru 2 in boot at the same time. I was a basket case with just one. Sounds like your drive to work is as bad as mine or worse if u go into Dallas . I live by lake Texoma and drive to Irving."
"Racer, my only son left 2 years ago this month. You cry and cry that first few weeks, then little by little it gets better. Just make sure u go to Pir (pass in review). Then u realize it is well worth it. Good luck . I still miss my son but once…"
"Arnavmom, ours is also in Jax . I am thankful he is going to a friends house tomorrow so he won't be alone . He is on call so hope the pager does not buzz until after festivities .
Happy thanksgiving to everyone"
"Hi Mary so sorry you are not feeling well. Hope you get better soon. At least we will get to see him for Christmas. We were so lucky because for the 1st year he was in San Antonio . So he would drive home every long weekend. Jim, that sounds so…"
I forgot to ask him what happened. I talked to him tonight too!
Ok seriously I cannot believe the behavior of some of these guys/girls. I understand being young to a point but they are in the military and should be more mature with what they do and how they act! Boy oh Boy...
Fire is not 49% contained. 146,000 acres and still burning but thankfully away from the town still.. we finally got some rain a few hours ago.. Not much but anything is great right now.. we are still the driest state in the country I heard.
Well Nick's GF will be going down to the graduation and he will be driving back with her.. do they get to leave the next day or can they leave graduation day?
Nick is in C class....Your son is in B correct? What is his last name... they only seem to know that. hahahahahaha
I am so happy they are about done... I cant wait to get him home
My husband finally went back to work on Wednesday, 6th, He said it is super smokey and he was surprised they lifted the evac notice but I guess the firemen knew what they were doing. It is now 40% contained and moving North of the town but towards one of the pueblos. Very sad as it has burned some of their sacred land.
Talked to Nick,, he is pretty sure he will get leave, Have you heard anything from Matt on this? Nick also mentioned that they all got in trouble Monday? He was texting but had to go clean the ship and said he will call me later,,,, did you hear on this?
Welcome to N4M’s. This site is full of information, support and encouragement. My son graduated boot camp Jan 29, 2010 and is now stationed in Sicily Italy as an IT.
If your profile or profile name contains last name (even if it is different from your rct/sailor)your rct/sailors first name or your e -mail address, I recommend that you change it for the safety of your sailor. Remember, this is a public site and anyone can read comments posted here.
Be wary of who you friend…before you accept a friend go to their page and see how active they are, the comments left, groups they’ve joined. If they have a lot of friends but no groups, no comments, click ignore and DO NOT FRIEND THEM…it is likely they are spammers, e-mail address harvesting
There is a group for each month rcts leave "Leavin for Boot Camp in (month they leave)" search groups and join this group...it will have info as well as connect you with other N4M's whose rcts leave that month.
Once you get your PIR (Pass In Review=graduation)date…search groups and join the PIR group..if it hasn’t been formed yet YOU may need to form it.
