Mine is graduating that day also, hope to meet you, you are going right?

Mine I think is staying at GC. Seems to me there is a Dad on here that has a home there that he rents to prototype sailors.

Hello all, my son is graduating from school in south carolina on August 1st and is being sent to Balleston Spa, NY. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where a good place to live is over there? I'm assuming they might have places that cater to or understand our sailor's

B'snukemom- glad to know your son had fun in the city, our family really enjoyed meeting him. I think he's met our entire family now. We all love him. Our younger son met them and had a great time, he said everyone really enjoyed the city. It's a good thing they have a few days to relax. Makes it much easier to start another work week.

Patti - it's great to hear that your son is enjoying Japan and it's fun to hear all that you are learning!  Please continue to share ;-)

Mine lucked out that his 4 days off hit over the 4th so he and his GF and roommate headed into NYC.  They had a really good time - he sent pictures along the way so that was nice. Sent a nice pic from the top of the Rockefeller Center.  He said Times Square was really crowded.  He also spent time at Rocaway Beach and said that was fun too.

We enjoyed our 4 day weekend too - pretty much got sailors room re-painted and all his stuff out - so now I have my "guest" room.  Just have to put some finishing touches on it and then it will be good to go! I can't believe how different it looks.

Hope everyone has a great week......Happy Tuesday!

Sounds like you're well-informed Patti.  Hope he enjoys Japan; he should get a lot of good port visits while he's there.

Mark - that would be pretty cool if he goes around the world that way! The refuel & maintenance overhaul is scheduled for Sept/fall of 2015. His orders when he left training were for him to stay in Japan, so we shall see! It is supposed to be a "hull swap" where most sailors stay where they are based & the ships are switched(the Reagan for the GW). Have no clue how any of that will happen! The good news is that the GW has an awesome Facebook page that keeps us up on what's going on. My son loves Japan so far & wants to stay there!

Wow...reading that award gave me goosebumps William. Thank you for sharing. BZ to your son, you must be BEAMING with pride. I am just impressed on how the Navy provides opportunities for the Sailors to excel and really shine and then reward them for their hard work.

William, congrats on your sons award I know you must be proud.
Just finished a wonderful visit with my son. it was so nice to be able and visit with him and give him a big hug. I know that he enjoyed being home and seeing his friends. It was so strange to see the changes in him, but nice too. He is maturing and really growing. He was ready to go back and be in a routine. To much break time for him. He likes to have fun, but only at the right time. Lol. My other boys think it is fun time all the time.

PattiP - your son's timing on reporting to his ship will probbly turn out to be a pretty good deal for him.  It's publicly reported the ship will start its refueling overhaul in Newport News, VA in two years or so.  He should be still on the ship then; typically when a carrier changes coasts like that, it's done by going around the world through the Mediterranean and Suez Canal on a full deployment that takes them around the world (or part thereof).  Should be a nice way to finish his first (or last) enlistment.
