Kylesmom, I just sent you a friend request. My son has been there since November. What is your sons MOS? Mine is aviation ordnance. He says they are a really right group and do a lot together. He seems to really like the area so far. He took his iphone with him when he left but. Just so he could text me along the way. And use it if wifi was available. Once there they have to buy a new phone if they want one. My son got another iPhone and we text (iMessage) for free. I hear from him at least once a week usually. We also Skype about once a month when we can get our schedules to work. We're in Virginia. He's 13 hours ahead so I'm usually heading to bed when he's getting up and vice versa :). It's nice to see him and hear his voice though so we work it out. If you have any specific questions please feel free to message me and I'll try to help. Still new myself.

Hello all, our Son just found out he will be heading to Kuni. This is a lot farther away then we hoped for, it doesn't look like there is much news on this board? Should we be looking at another page?! Abby basics that I need to know, I'm pretty new to this! He's been close so far his MOS has been the furthest he's been away...so Japan will be an adjustment

Interested in a live chat on MFN?
Tracy, founder of MarineParents.com, Inc., has started a topic asking for your input. We are able to man a live chat directly on MFN. It would be a general chat, moderated, of course. Please share your thoughts with Tracy by going either to the home page where you'll see the topic started in the center, just above the 'do you shop at Amazonsmile' logo (which if you check that out it will donate .5% of everything you spend at Amazon to MarineParents when you check out - it's simple to set up !! ) :

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/

Here is the direct link to the topic:
http://marinefamilynetwork.com/

Go try it. It's like an instant chat feature running in the lower right hand corner. You don't need java for it to run. You can keep your boards open. You can choose when you want to be in the chat room and when you don't.

You guys know how it works .... I know you have chased that GREEN DOT before !! Same concept. So log in and chat away !! You can clear your chat history. Mods will be available to answer questions. We think you will like it it. It's up and running right now so give it try !
Thank you!

Hello families.  Is it always this quiet for "Kuni?  My son just arrived there.

I sent my first care package today :)  I'm anxious to see how long it takes.  Shipped it USPS flat rate priority.  Just sent some candy and goodies.  I want to get some Christmas decorations on the way soon, even though I'm sure my son will say NO I don't need that.
