Hey Keri! My Marine graduates from MCT tomorrow! He'll be moving on to his MOS in Pensacola. Is there a group to join for aviation? Thanks!

There's a new live chat on the main page and follows you to each group you visit too. 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 in your groups or on the main page of MFN!

Give it a try!:)

Hey there. I am here to join the group for MCT. That is the next phase for my Marine. How do I join so I get alerts just like the last group?

Keri - Thank you I'll look again but wasn't having any luck finding any information. :(

kbbca -- Feel free to start your own discussion for Echo through the link LazyK has provided.
ITB West doesn't make their graduation schedule public (or it has not been updated so far this year), so we can't start the topics ahead of time like we do for the recruit training groups. We depend on our members who know that info to start the topics... since you get the firsthand information from your Marine.
Welcome to SOI :) and all my best to your Marine through this part of his Marine training,

Echo is an ITBn (infantry MOS) training company. Keri will correct me if I'm wrong.

Here are the ITBn discussions.
