Marine Moms Café

The MMCafé is a central hangout for all moms (and others) of Marines and is not restricted to just former Hotel Co. members.  Chartered by the moms of Hotel Co., MCRD SD, Oct. 21, 2011, who found during boot that a joy shared is doubled and a sorrow shared is halved, this group offers a central location for camaraderie and support for family members of Marines.
Drop by and share a cup of coffee with us.

There's a new live chat on the main page and follows you to each group you visit too.

Have you noticed the tabs at the bottom of your screen?

Tracy, the founder of MFN is trying this new chat out to see how everyone likes it.

This new chat feature is for everyone (recruit families as well as Marine families) and will be available for specified hours during the day.

Check out this link to Tracy's blog that is requesting your input too!

You can minimize to get it out of your way in the groups if you want or click to join in.  So you can access it in your groups or on the main page of MFN!

Give it a try!:)

T he info is terrific, thank you!   He mentioned Taco Bell and A&W, so a gift card to someplace else will be a big surprise for him.

Also, you could ask crawfish

Okay, upon closer inspection of that link, it only shows places on the base.  You can also do a search for 'best places to eat near Pensacola NAS' and several links will pop up with suggestions. Hope that is more helpful.

Hi, Beanpole's Mom-- Sorry this is a little late, but you can try here. Since it's an mil ending, I think it's okay for me to post the link.

Hope it's helpful.
