On behalf of the staff and members of the Service Academy Forums, we would like to make welcome to any and all Service Academy Single Parents. Feel free to post your discussion topics within our Parents Forum and take advantage of a new chat room where you can “talk” in real time to other members about topics specific to single parent issues. If you’re joining for the first time, please take a moment to read our FAQ and general COC rules then stop by to say hello in our Introductions thread under General Discussion. Many of you are in extended families with special concerns relating to being a parent of a service academy young adult and we hope that you’ll find a home here with other parents who have much in common with you. Should you find difficulties with using the forum or the chat room, feel free to send me a private message. As our kid’s have been known to say on occasion, “(If) I don’t know the answer but I will find out, sir/ma’am”.
