Moms/Dads/Families with Nukes in Ballston Spa, NY

Wanted to start a group for moms, dads, and other family members that have Nukes currently attending Prototype in Ballston Spa, NY.

Thought I would start a group for the families of sailors stationed in NY for Prototype. It will be nice to chat about what is going on with our sailors whether it is good or bad so that we can support each other. I have connected with many people on this site but it is always nice to meet others that are going through the same things together. Also if you have had a sailor in NY for an extended amount of time then you can help the new ones just coming in on what to expect.

That made my tear ducts leak, Wendy.  I am so thankful for angels out there that are put in our path.  Enjoy your day tomorrow - I loved (and attended) both graduations up there back in 2012.

I flew in to Albany at 630PM! We must have missed each other. I'm going to be there tomorrow as well. There are a couple of us who met up for Peer school graduation a year ago, so look for us. I'm wearing a black sweater with a scarf and black slacks. I'll try to message you!

So, I'm traveling today to Albany, NY, to attend the Prototyoe graduation tomorrow!! Yes, I'm very excited, but it's been rough...

I was supposed to leave yesterday, but something got messed up with my 3rd-party, cheap airfare site and agent who assisted me. The flight got booked for today instead of yesterday and I was pretty much crushed when they told me there was nothing that could happen any sooner -- even if I paid the exorbitant fees!

So, I waited and am flying today. I've got a connection in DC (now), but as I was waiting (in the front of the line!) to board, the gate agent told me that I'd have to check my bag because the zone on my ticket indicated I'd be boarding last and the flight was going to be too full for overhead baggage by the time I got on. "Oh, no! I'm going to miss it, or embarrass my kid by attending graduation in travel clothes with only purse makeup," I thought to myself...

Before I could process this, a random guy came up to me and said, "There you are! I've been waiting for you over here in priority boarding!!" He sorta moved me and my suitcase over to where his stuff was, and as the gate agent walked away he said,

"I'm James. I overheard you've been having some troubles getting to see your son graduate. My brother was Navy and I got to see him graduate in Pensacola a long time ago. I know it meant a lot to him. I can't get you there any sooner, but I can make sure you don't have to check your bag. We're together now and you can board with me when 1st class boards."

I was stunned. I'm sure I said thank you (hope I did, but it's fuzzy) and I said, "How can I repay you?" James said, "You don't have to. Tell you son I said thank you, for sure, but I want to thank you, too. It's families as well as the guys doing the job who sacrifice, too, you know?"

Well, I teared up then and am now as I type, but James made my day and I wanted to share because you all deserve a thank you, too!!

Bethr311, Paddy got orders to Norfolk, aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. We're really happy about that because my husband is at Norfolk too! I think there are seveal headed this way, so please let me know if your Sailor is here and in need of anything! Also, if any of you are here for a visit, please give me a call!
