awwww my son called today.....he received the NAM award!!!! ...some may not know..thats the Navy Achievement Medal. He is coming home on leave and bringing it w/ him..I looked on computer..its pretty nice looking. We had this huge vinyl banner made when he made Petty Officer, and put it over the top of the garage door...gotta get that back out & up!!
It's just amazing..one day...they leave to the great unknown (bc), and you're crying your eyes out and you dont know if you're ever going to be ok ever again, and you just want to reach out and grab your baby back w/ one hand , and smack the blank out of the recruiter that signed him w/ the other...
It's just so good when you can sense that they feel they have made the right decision regarding their futures, even tho not all days are glorious.
well, I just wanted to brag!!!!!! Godbless all military & their loved ones.
