    Spent a great few days in Cape May this week for graduation.  I would like to thank everyone on here for their advice and assistance.  It was very helpful.

    Congratulations to you and your family!! Did the watch make it through boot camp as well?!

    Any tips for a mom who will be going through this boot camp journey in March?

    Small Boat Station Seattle Consmom, my son knew his required knowledge in his sleep and was in good physical condition. He said that knowing the required knowledge really took a lot of heat off of him and directed it to the recruits that don't memorize all that stuff before they get there. Also the physical conditioning is obvious. He knew exactly what he could do in all three events before he went, and didnt have to worry about it. That took a little stress away. My kid was very immature and naive. I was very worried about him. I guess the other thing would be to let him know to stay positive and dont spend any time worrying about things at home or reversion a and their impact on friends and relatives. Just focus on the task at hand and banish all negativity. Oh, and get on the closed group Facebook page for your son's company. The info on there is super valuable. Everything from hotel and amenity information to links to recruit journals. It's a great resource for family and spouses. It's run by volunteers of the USCG Family Assistance Fund, many who are retired Coasties who are very helpful. Thanks again everyone. Happy Thanksgiving

    OH and the watch. Yes, he is wearing it as we speak. It's a little beat up but he said it was very useful and now he can't go without it. It's just a water proof $25 Casio from Wally World.

    Congratulations!

    Mine leaves in five days, for meps and then ships the next morning. "Oh, and get on the closed group Facebook page for your son's company." How do I go about finding the closed group Facebook page for my son's company?

    Thanks!
