Thanks oleander. She actually will be upfront carrying her division flag she and a few others designed! Very excited!

So glad to hear you made it safely hellraiser! My daughter stayed in GL for A school so I'm not sure about the airport situation but I think there's a room where you can spend time w/ your sailors - the USO room? I remember reading comments on the boot camp site. 

do you happen to have a pair of binoculars? I bought an inexpensive pair thru amazon but I'll bet Walmart has something similar. They made all the difference in the world! We passed them from person to person during the entire ceremony and could see every facial expression -- it was fantastic! Even tho the hall isn't huge, your daughter will be far enough away that you won't be able to really see her face unless she's right up front. 

Have a wonderful time!!!! Don't forget your tissues!

Thanks Blondie. Yes she's was out of high school 3 weeks amd left for the Navy. Broke our hearts but especially her 11 yr old brothers heart. They were so close. I haven't seen him more excited then he is. 23 hour car trip I think he only slept a few hours lol. It's definitely going to he bittersweet come Friday and see them 2 together. Can't wait to c her. We will probably just hang out at the airport makes it easier.

Glad you made it safely.  Made me cry to read she got to call you and how excited she she a grad-n-go?  I've heard of others going to the air port and sitting with them....?

Well first off we have arrived in Great lakes safely! 2nd our Sailor got to call us! She was excited that we r right down the road. She was able to give us her info for PIR and fly out info. That's where I have a question at.shes to arrive early at airport but Flys out late. Was told she can't go to the Hilton that's attached to airport from what I read on the US Navy Command fb page. But was told by others she can as long as it's not In her name. Does anyone who just recently PIR know about that?
Comment by Blondie on Wednesday

in all the noise and cheering, believe it or not, this quiet calm came over me....You're so PROUD of all of them, it's like they've all became your child.  And you search for that first sighting of "yours".....They are all grown up!

Good morning everybody

Yay!!! Congratulations cjbmom! Enjoy every second!

Hang in there Jean, only a couple more days.

Right Blondie? I watched a couple of PIR's prior to my daughter's hoping I wouldn't make a fool of myself when it was our turn. Nope --- cried like a baby. Something so profound about seeing them for the 1st time since they left for BC - dress whites, marching to the drums in perfect formation, American flag proudly displayed in the hall -- chills from head to toe!

Congrats to all the new Sailors and their families.  It's been a long ride but you made it and next our the HUGS!!!!  Safe travels and can't wait to hear all your news.

angelmomma and ashleighmom, they keep them really busy the first 3 days, well all the time actually but on Sundays they get free time that's when they get to write home and they have to earn calls home, or that's the way it was 8 years ago. lol  I'm sure she's fine but I know what you mean just to hear her voice lets us know she's Really Okay.  Hugs

roliesmom,  glad to hear it.  VA is wonderful.  She'll make friends fast.  And you're right, us mama bears never stop worrying.

Anna, sounds like another Great couple of weeks for you.  Enjoy!

Oleander just reading your post took me back there again, yep I'm crying too!

Jean, still liking your job? 

cjb, That's GREAT!  Congrats and Happy planning, Hugs to her from me.

My baby girl passed all her final tests this week and is a Master at Arms!! (Sharpshooter too!)  She should be home this weekend for a couple of weeks before heading over to Bahrain for 2 years!  Can't wait to see her and spend some time with her, so excited! Happy Hump day to everyone!
