    Any parents interested in a closed FB group for our incoming 2023 class of NROTC students? I'd find that useful and will start if others would also find beneficial.

    If yes, send me a personal message here and I'll start one. Include your email address so I can send an invite.

    I am in ️ I was just thinking about that yesterday. Going through NROTC application and getting ready for NSI, I was thinking is there a Parents & Alumni Association that offers help for NROTC in a manner that the SA do?

    Thank you for getting this going, I’ll help in anyway I can.

    Not that I personally care one way or the other, but why not use this forum? Why does it need to be a closed group? Do you not think that other class years can learn from the experiences you had if you posted here? Just food for thought.

    Doesn't need to be a year-specific group, but I'm much more familiar with FB groups and prefer it to digging for info in this forum. I've found this forum valuable as well, just not my favorite format.

    I've also got other USMC FB groups that have proven to be very valuable on this journey. Couple it with live streaming, photos, etc. Win-win for those that prefer.

    Any new (or existing) NROTC parents interested in sharing information, I've created a FB group, together with @CalifStrongDad - <---removed link--->. For a bit of security, I've added a few questions to clarify those joining have a reason to be a part of the group. If you're new to the military life, OPSEC and PERSEC will be acronyms you become very familiar with soon.

    How do I join the FB group? Also, just downloaded this app yesterday. Don't know how to do a private message. DS heading to NSI with husband in the morning. One of the mom's at his new student orientation told me how helpful this app has been.

    I'm with you on this one...I've had 2 DS involved in NROTC spanning 7 years and feel that I could add valuable input from a parent perspective, but I prefer this forum...and helping present and future generations, not a fan of closed groups when this forum has been so invaluable.

    I would like to join the FB group but do have to say this forum setting was very helpful while
    going through the USNA process. Everyone supported each other in their journey and had valuable information to offer. Especially the moderators who have been through all this before. There are many people in these forums whose kids aren’t in this particular class but still support our kids and us parents completely.

    I am interested in the FB parent group as well. Don't think I can PM as I don't have enough posts.
