Slapout---I honestly think that my DS sailor felt so isolated in BC, and knows that he's not likely to have a lot of contact once he's at his next station, that he generally calls us several times a day and skypes a couple times per week. LOL   Does he write anymore? Nooooooo, not unless it's an occasional text. I think he got so starved for our voices, that he's taking every advantage to do so. LOL

slapout, hang in there, each phase is different and difficult in its own way and you will adjust to the "new normal" that comes with each of those phases.

I guess I was pretty vague on that last post!  My Sailor is in A school in GL & Yes, PIR was undoubtedly the top of the line experience!  I agree, the transformation was amazing & a source of great pride for me.  He is a DC & will graduate A school in August.  then he will get some leave time.  I guess I'm just still in a let-down frame of mind.  they don't write from A school & texting is not the same.  He sounds like he's a cross town at Wal-Mart or something! LOL  But every day is getting easier & august will be here soon enough.

lapout52; I felt the exact smae way when my son was in bc. I hardly left the house and thought that my world as I knew it was over. He is my only child, except for the dog! I'm proud to say I made it with the help of many great friends on this website. He PIRed 5/6 and is currently in A school.

Watching him go through PIR and seeing the way he carried himself in public made me realize that he's no longer "my little boy". He has grown into a fine young man and I'm one of many moms who is sooooo proud of their child!!! :) The Navy gets very high marks from me on my son's transformation in 8 weeks!!  So does my son, He worked very hard to get through bc, and we are so very proud of him.

I hope your planning on attending PIR. What an awesome event to be a part of!

Graduation is not until August and I'm just sad.  It is a roller  coaster thru basic & then you get caught up in PIR . . . I was not ready for this phase at all!  WHINE!!!  This is worse than post partum depression!  No it's the same.  I must be nuts.

My son just completeds PIR on June 3, 2011. He is gone to A School in SC. He doesn't have a phone yet so I'm not sure how to communicate with him. He is a Nuke and I am just wondering if there are any other Nuke families on here? I didn't know about this in time to meet up with the families the evening before graduation so I don't want to miss out on any more events.

oh good for you Jeff's Mom!!Do they have a big "to do" for the 4th over there? I'm glad you got to see him.

Hi Renebo, I am very excited!  He just came home for the weekend.  He looks great!  I am going to see him on July 4th weekend!  Stay on base when you visit.  It is so much easier for our sailors!
