  1. We have the option of using a DoD school next year full time, part-time (for language, music and art instruction) or not at all. Has anyone done part-time enrollment with DoDEA overseas or used any of the materials/resources that are available for loan? I'm wondering how this works in practice.
  2. Just starting to help DS figure out a direction; he is in 9th grade, so it's no rush. He is interested in military service, which is okay with me, but I do want him to go to college, too; I'm not super keen on straight enlisted service. He also wants this, too, because he wants, "The college life" in his words. In a perfect world, he would gain an appointment to USAFA in Colorado, or second-choice Naval Academy in Maryland (our home state). This does not look probable, though. He is an unexceptional student. So, I'm thinking he could go to a school that offers ROTC, but I don't know much
  3. Just exploring options for dd, and I know nothing - we are very much civilians. ;) We've never seriously considered military options for our kids, but dd has spent a lot of time recently with teens who are all on various military-bound paths & it's peaked her interest. DD is currently interested in civil or environmental engineering. She's entering her junior year in high school. Looking over the homeschooling information on the Air Force Academy's website, it looks as though dd would be a strong candidate. Solid test scores, strong extracurriculars, excellent grades (most of them are
  4. So is anyone applying to service academies or ROTC this year? Applications are in full swing, but it's not to late to start.
  5. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but maybe someone here knows. When homeschooling overseas, what laws are we required to follow? From what I gather, the DOD has no jurisdiction over us, and neither does the country in which we would live. Are we subject to the laws of the state of our legal residence?
  6. Air Force here he comes. We are trying to spend lots of time together as a family this weekend. I am so very proud of the young man he has become.
  7. I would like to hear from families whose children may be considering enlisting in the military 'at some point.' I would like to hear a bit about your/their strategy and rationale? Personally I am apprehensive with my oldest and 'only' son. But it may be something he wants to do or expresses interest in. So I am doing research on it now. There does seem to be a wide variety of options available in terms of types of service as well as educational and work experiences gained. BTW, I also understand if you are apprehensive as there is potentially great risk involved. Thanks,

  9. Just this week, I started getting candidates for the next USNA admissions cycle. Just a reminder to get out there ahead of the time crunch if you're applying this year. There are a couple steps (interviews & medical exams for example) that often aren't triggered until a student has completed a certain percentage of their application. So completing the forms you are responsible for, submitting a transcript (current up to the time of application) and soliciting teacher recommendations can help move the process along. I would also strongly recommend that you look over all of the n
  10. My 14yo lives, eats, and breathes the Marines. He had been planning to simply enlist right after high school, but now he is considering going to college first so he can become an officer. So I've been researching the Marine Option of the NROTC program for him. Does anyone know anything about it? To be quite honest, he's not the best at school, and I'm afraid that will limit him when it comes to being awarded this scholarship.:glare: I read somewhere else that they are looking for varsity athletes...well, he's homeschooled - how would that affect things? He's in the Young Marines and fu
  11. Can you share what you or your group is doing for Veteran's Day? We have a trip to our local Veteran's Museum planned for Veteran's Day however it would be nice to do some volunteering/service project as well. We live relatively rural and options are limited. We have a Veteran's Hospital but my understanding is that they just don't let people volunteer without going through certain shots and such(one of our members is a veteran and her husband works there as well). I thought about baskets/boxes for oversees veterans but our group doesn't have much money and neither do our members. Any
  12. to start college planning? My son thinks he wants to go into the police academy or the military. I'd like to see him have a plan "B" and college under his belt before adult life really kicks in. My hubby says I should back off and let the boy pursue his dreams unhindered. Am I crazy?
  13. I am a testament to never say never. My oldest is wanting to do ROTC. What are the odds of him getting it? He doesn't have a lot of sport experience, but a ton of leadership roles, a great gpa from cc, & a high sat. Thanks!
  14. At a meeting for work today (I work in Early Intervention), I found out about a neat resource for families with deployed military members. It is a free big box of information...board books for young children, pamphlets and information for parents. If you go to the website for Zero to Three (then look for the link to militaryonesource. You have to register on that website then go to orderable materials and you should be able to find the free information there. I didn't go through all the registration because you can only order one free and I didn't have my SIL address to mail it to her (the
  15. OK, I realize that if I'm enrolling a kid in a summer program run by the public schools that they are going to need to have copies of stuff like immunization records and proof of residence in the district. But what really frosted my cookies was that our military medical facilities seem unable to provide me with a one page record of the kids' shots without going through a doctor's appointment (available in five weeks). Most of the shots were done at military facilities over the years. All except for one set are in their records already, but they are on page after page of entries, becau
  16. There is a new entitlement in the PCS personal property rules that allows spouses to claim 500lbs of spouse professional gear. Has anyone done this? I've been a scout leader for seven years and have done lots of community service with homeschool support groups. I'm not trying to claim all of my homeschooling stuff, but I'd sure like to claim all the various guidebooks and how to homeschool books that I use when counseling new homeschoolers.
  17. A friend of mine writes for Military Spouse magazine. She is quite the services and benefits wonk and used to also write for Military One Source. She has been tracking a lot of the potential closures if there is a government shutdown. This release from the Office of the Secretary of Defense outlines some of what will happen in case of a government shutdown. The situation is still quite fluid in terms of what will and won't be open. For example, services funded by non-appropriated funds (ie MWR or funded by users) could stay open, but could close if the customers aren't there because
  18. Ugh! I've been on another parenting board (not hsing) for years, and one of the sub-forums is for military spouses. I have been on these board for a long time (9+ years) and am always more than willing to offer support and assistance. I've been around the military for a long time and know it can be hard. I also know a lot about various bases and can give information to those who need it. I've also made several great friends IRL, whose paths I've crossed in our various travels. Having said this though, I'm sick to death of the 18/19/20 year old spouses griping and moaning about every. sin
  19. Well, the title says it all. I have no clue what one is allowed to have while in the military. I know during basic training it's practically nothing that is not issued but what about afterwards? What would make sense, be useful or just be good fun?
