Judy,

Anyone can do boot camp in 8 weeks, it takes a special person 9 weeks to do it! Just remember to keep letters upbeat and positive and encouraging. Whatever the reason, he'll still want and need that support from his family.

Thank you to the family that took our son in for Thansgiving. It was truly a blessing to talk to him on the phone and that they opened their home up to him and another recruit. They got to call home, email, facebook, watch a football game and enjoy a home cooked meal. God bless them!

I think the flight home depends on where he is stationed.
OldGuard might be able to tell you more about it.

If your recruit is planning on coming back home with you, you need to book the flight for them. CG will give them an allowance from Cape May to there new station. Anyother traveling is on your own expense.

They can book their own flight home and pay for it themselves as well. You don't HAVE TO make the reservation for them. Just let your recruit know your flight plans and your recruit can book the same flight.

What about for me? Will the CG pay to move me and our daughter? Like if we are stationed in Hawaii, will they buy a plane ticket for me?

That can be as fast as the recruit can run. My son and I got lost in the exchange together... much to the rest of the families chagrin. My son and I are extremely close, no one was surprised the 2 of us disappeared while they all waited at the restaurant. We both thought it was worth the dirty looks. If we hadn't stopped at the exchange we would have been off the base in about 30 minutes after graduation.

HI EVERYONE!!!

I think my son is the Youngster in the Yankee company at the age of 18! He had turned 18 2 days before shipping out!

I just discovered the Facebook Closed Group and when I can get on a desktop computer and do a request I will to get in the group! My son is one of their Religious Petty Officers in the company.

Thank you to all of you on this thread, they are really coming together as a company/family and looking out for each other!!!

Thanks OldGuard2 for all your information, it has been a blessing!!

Looks like on the journal that they had one of their company reverted back...
They had their ups and downs as a company again, but they are standing strong together!!

It's coming... honest! He might be the last recruit in line... so just hang on! Calls sometimes last until Tuesday! I know how crazy it must be making you. You'll hear soon! Let us know if you have questions about your new duty station.

Thanks! I've been trying to remind myself that whether or not I know doesn't change anything, but every time the phone rings that goes right out the window.

I'm sure I will have a ton of questions. I don't really even care where we are going, I just want to be with my husband!

Is this the start of week 5 or the end? Remember the calls come at the end of week 5. Don't look for it too early! I think that makes sense. LOL I know, you just want to hear a simple "I love you" too.

Its the end of week 5. Actually 6 weeks because he was reverted :/

I just realized that the 10th is his on base liberty, and I'm supposed to be at a Christmas bazaar that day. In a town with no cell service. I haven''t quite decided if I'm going to skip the bazaar.

Are you sure you don't live in Wisconsin?? I rarely ever have cell service and it makes me bananas. I'll be in the middle of a conversation with Colin... beep beep beep... call drops, goes dead. It takes half an hour for me to get back to a spot where service picks back up again! It makes me crazy!

You'll get your call soon. Sometimes they take a while to get through everyone. Has anyone else in the company received a call yet??

Everybody's been getting calls this morning! Including me. Although I was on the phone so he left a voice mail. We're going to Seattle Wa. He's stationed on a high endurance cutter.

Do you know how long he will be gone at a time? And do I need to look for an apartment?

That is fantastic! I'm so glad you got a call. I'm sorry you missed it but at least you know where you are going now! Seattle will be really nice. You can start LOOKING but DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT (did I stress DO NOT enough) sign anything or send any money to anyone!!! You will get time when you get to Seattle to find a place to live. So start googling, craigslist, realtor.com, zillow.com but again sign nothing! Get there and touch the place, see it for yourself, smell the apartment, look at the neighborhood with your own eyes!

High Endurance Cutters... They will typically go out for 3 months and be home for 3 months. Of course that is always subject to change per mission.

Thanks!

I won't sign anything. Or send money. My husband would be pretty upset if I rented a place without his approval

I have rented plenty of places without Jim when I was married, with Scott since we've been together the last 15 years. You know what you'll like, what will be comfortable and safe... just long distance, over the internet, you are looking at SCAM central! I would hate for you to send $1500 in security & 1st month's rent type of thing only to find out your money went to Nigeria and you'll never see it again! Or you move into some fleabag, drug neighborhood because it looked so pretty on the internet. Pictures can be altered so that the worst slums can look amazing.

Have you checked out another forum... WWW.COASTIECHICKS.NET ? I'm not a fan of that site... it is a bit too whiny, too needy for me. However, it is a pretty informative site and it is almost 100% Coastie wives/girlfriends. You might be able to find out quite a bit about Seattle there and even meet some of the wives from your new ship. Like I said, my personal opinion was a bit whiny but that doesn't mean you might not make some good connections there. They just share a lot personally so it was complain about in laws or step kids and ex-spouses... so I prefer here, it is more meat & potatoes Coast Guard stuff. Give it a check, you never know.

I have looked at Coastie Chicks, seems like there is a lot of information there.

I looked at a few places, but think that Sean and I are just going to go to a rental agency once we get there.

Coastie Chicks does have good info. It just wasn't my cup of tea. Sometimes it seemed to be a but to whiny for me. Seemed they wanted to complain more about their mothers and/or mothers-in-law wanting to visit. I loved when my mom visited, I loved it even more when she left but I was always happy to have her come visit. My mother-in-law only visited once and my husband had to guilt her into that visit, she didn't come willingly! But the site does have good info.

Like I said, look on the different real estate sites, get an idea of what looks to be around there. Then when you get there you'll have an idea. You can even make contact with a real estate agent now and have them line places up for you. I did that when we moved to Virginia from Alaska and when we moved from NJ to Texas. I got off the plane and hit the ground running looking at properties. Nothing wrong with being prepared.

Your BAH will be approx 1335 a month.

Hi everyone.. I just received a phone call from my husband, (hes also in Yankee 185) with the location that we will be moving to when he graduates Thurs, Dec 22nd, 2011. I missed his phone call though so I didnt get to ask any questions! We will be in Port Angeles, Washington and hes going to be on a 87 foot cutter. Is anyone else getting stationed there too?? Does anyone know what that job is going to be like for him and our little family? Im worried he will be gone for a long time.

Any help would be great, thank you! C:
