Vulnerability; capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt

Posted by Gayle on August 21, 2014 at 6:34pm 9 Comments

Along with many of you, two weeks ago today was the last I saw/talked to my SR. He has known for awhile what he wanted to do. He just wasn't sure about the timing. In Feb., he went and saw the recruiter, then came DEP, and then summer happened (fast). I was so full of pride and happiness for him. I was even giddy. I couldn't even talk about him and what he was doing without a big stupid smile on my face.  Then the time came. It came too fast. I wasn't ready. It happened anyway. I hid my…

The lump in my throat and the pride in my heart

Posted by CodyCyleMum16 on August 19, 2014 at 2:18pm 0 Comments

The count down began months ago when we received the news regarding my sons official "deployment" date...8/22/14.  10 months...seems like a decade of time versus "boot camp" and "underways"

I've never been seriously involved with a man in the Navy before and its all so new and shiny...and confusing! 



 He tries so hard to keep me updated on whats going on and explain things to me but it all gets lost in translation. Not to mention its barely been a couple of months and…

Am I the Only Excited Mom? Why are There So Many Sad Moms??

Posted by pattieg on August 2, 2014 at 2:52pm 22 Comments

On every site related to our recruits, I see post after post of parents who are so sad about their child being in boot camp.  I'm very close to my son but I'm beginning to feel abnormal.  It is hard not to be able to talk to him any time I want but I am so proud of what he is doing so it's hard to be sad.  I am so happy that he has made good decisions for his future and is creating a valuable life for himself.  Sure, I hang up the phone and cry when I do get those rare phone calls but what…
