Good morning all. Wear Denim today in support of Sexual Assault Awareness month.    Denim Day began in 1999 to protest a ruling by the Italian High Court. The Court stated in its decision that “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them…and by removing the jeans…it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” (qtd. in “Denim Day CA Rally”). Now every year in April women will wear jeans to “express that sexual assault victims are never to blame for their own victimization regardless of the circumstances involved.” (Denim Day CA Rally). I am so glad the Navy supports this important cause.

Yes, Vickyrun, it's one of my Favorites.  thank you.

Leach, wonderful story.  Thanks for sharing it.  Congrats to your daughter.  I agree 100%

Catsmom, can we see a picture of the baby bump?  PLEASE

Comment by Anna on Wednesday


Yep sounds like you have one strong young lady there!!!  Good for her!!  If she's on a ship will they be going out soon or are they in port for awhile??  Does she have a rating that she wants to get into?


Glad your daughter finally got what she wanted.  I started as a yeoman before striking for OS.  In hindsight I probably should have stayed yeoman (except I hated secretarial at that time) but OS got me nowhere at that time because women weren't allowed on ships yet.


Isn't it kinda funny how that happens to some pregnant women??  Seems like overnight the baby doubles the size of the womb!!!!!  Hope she's doing a little better, especially feeling the baby move now, and that she gets to Norfolk!!!!

In Bend, OR now!!!  Got warm enough to open up some windows for awhile.  It's cooling fast now cause the sun is going down!!!

Hi everyone,

Blondie, Wow I am praying for all of you. So sad to hear about all the illnesses and the death in the family. Hugs to all of you.
Praying you had a better day toda, and that the new help catches on soon! Continuing prayers for your girl.

Vickyrun, so happy your retreat was all you needed it to be. Praying for your girl and her husband. Deployment is so hard on all of us left behind.

Sonya, happy your girl is happy and doing well. Hope she gets the rate she wants soon. Yes our girls are strong. Makes us moms happy!

Leach, YaY, happy your girl pushed through and got what she wanted. Makes me proud of all of our girls, They are all amazing women and Sailors.

Jean, hope you had a better day today, and the computer decided to work.

Crystal had to go buy maternity uniforms, she popped overnight..LOL Friday she had a little pooch, Sat, she was all out there. Pray they let her go to Norfols as scheduled, she is really not crazy to be back in Pensacola..LOL

Hello Sonya209 and everyone!

I don't post much but I do read your comments and love to see the sisterhood that has developed here.

My daughter graduated April 2014! One of the best days ever! She was also undesignated and got assigned to a ship in Norfolk. Did a lot of odd jobs, grunt work and started to hate everything! She knew that the rate that she wanted (corpsman) was a lost cause because of many reasons. So each  month when she got the list of jobs she qualified for, she kept striking for the one she wanted (Yeoman) and got it! She got to the ship in May 2014 and got her rate in less than a year! She kept working hard and diligently and even though she had some tough days, she pushed thru it all. Her next homeport is in Spain!!! She is beyond excited about that.

Our girls are brave, strong, and courageous! As moms, we have taught them to NEVER GIVE UP, like Sonya said and I agree with her 1000%....our girls have what it takes to be successful Sailors too!

Sonya - keep encouraging your daughter and fill up her motivation tank with positivity and love! If our girls can make it thru boot camp they can make it thru anything :)

A hug to all you strong Navy Moms who raised strong Navy daughters!

Good morning all, Happy Tuesday!

Blondie, so sorry for all the deaths and illness of the ones you love. Saying the Serenity Prayer helps me with my worries. Do you know it?

Comment by Sonya209 on Tuesday

Thank you all for the warm welcome! My daughter is stationed in Florida and after almost a year she still does not have a rate. She signed up for the Navy without one and thought she could job shadow certain ones, decide what she wants to do and then sign up for her rate. But it is not that easy. I guess when rates become available, they are assigned to ones with more seniority. So we are just waiting for that great day to come. Meanwhile, she is doing odd jobs around the ship...but she is just glad to be in the number. She had a rough time with boot camp passing the running part (she did very well with everything except that). She did not graduate with her class and was assigned to FIT but 2 weeks later she passed the run and became a SEAMAN...WHAT A GREAT DAY!!! That next weekend, we were in Illinois congratulating her and celebrating her perseverance and persistence. That was the main thing, SHE DID NOT GIVE UP!!!
So that's it in a nutshell, she is happy and so are we! I applaud all the young ladies who have elected to go this route. It's not an easy task, but with focus, dedication and the support of others, they can achieve success in the NAVY just like the young men!
