Hi Lucina! Thats awesome to talk with someone who also has a son in Great Lakes. They left on the same day too. Its been so difficult dor us to cope with his being gone. We realized it would be hard but truly didn't know the extent of pain his abscence would bring us. We miss our son terribly and I can only imagine you are going through the same. The videos have helped me a bit to see what they will be going through. It brings at ease knowing he's safe. Graduation is April 20th and we can't wait to see him. We live in Arizona so he is pretty far from home. We are so proud of him and we thank your son also for his service. We are keeping son and your family in our prayers.
(Running behind on my welcomes getting ready for our sailor to get home. He got home safely early this morning after running into many storms on the road.)

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference.
