I had no idea how hard this was going to be. We took our son to the recruiters office yesterday morning. He did manage to give me a call last night from the hotel. This morning he will be officially swearing in and off to the Chicago. I know in my head this is a wonderful journey we are on . He is living his dream but my heart is so sad. I hope he gets a chance to call me while traveling today. Waiting for the scripted call tonight.
I am new to this site, got accepted into N4M today but not really sure how to navigate. My daughter Sam leaves for BC June 18. Worried,proud and feeling lost at her leaving home. Sam is my youngest and I will have a hard time when she leaves. Any suggestions?
My son is a "Depper", due to leave at the end of July. I was wondering if anyone else has a child with learning disabilites in the Navy. He's smart, but he learns just a little differently. He's been working so hard, he must have lost at least 25 pounds in preparation!
PIR in six days! I just can't wait to see my sailor (as he will be). They are wearing blues, not whites. I like that. There is nothing like a son in a great uniform to make a mama proud. I'm packing extra tissues. I'm pretty sure I'm going to cry a lot of happy tears.
