Look like you've connected with your PIR group - that is good. The survival guide below will have links to all sort of sites that are great sources of info - like the RTC site w the family guide, the PIR Information Reference group, etc.
We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck. NOTE to moms: your emotions are going to go through some real highs and lows. It's all part of letting go. It would be unnatural for you not to feel a sense of loss, even though you are very proud. That loss is saying goodbye to his/her "childhood" and their dependence on you, as his/her "mom" - it's a role we have embraced from their birth. How can we not feel something when it is changing FAST? Just stay with us. The Boot Camp Moms, Navy MEPS/Dep and the PIR groups are here to see you through from beginning to end.
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
