Oh Ok.. I got letters from her today.. She didn't say anything about Grad-n-Go.. However she did say they have their 1st inspection on Friday.. She did't date the letter, so I take it as this Friday coming up.. I hope they all do well... She said she recieved some letters so that makes me feel better.. we took some pix, and sent them to her.. It made her day.... Hope you receive letters today.. God Bless
What is your son's job? Ash is logistics.. I hope she not a grad-and -go.. she didn't tell us yet.. So I don't know.. If she is we can't change it, we will just make the best of it.. she did tell us where she would like to meet us after graduation.. I'm glad you received your letter from your son.. Gives you alittle piece of mind.. God Bless
I didn't know what I.T. meant, so I called her recruiter, he told me that it meant intense training, that's why we haven't heard from them.. I didn't want to hear that, but she said there are some that don't want to listen, so they all get punished.. which is sad.. That's why they haven't recieved their letters yet.. I hope you get one tommorow!! My daughter asked for me to send her stamps too.. talk to you later,,
We received our letter today.. She said that hey had I.T. a couple of times, because nobody knows how to listen.. What ever I.T. means. We have written alot of letters, and she said she has not received one yet.. We started sendind them out I think on the 14th of Feb. I don't know why she is not receiving them.. I hope you get your letter today.. Talk to you soon..
I think that there is some intentional confusion about the correct addresses; we went through the same thing with Sean. I think maybe the Navy was deliberately is trying to slow down the correspondence!
I read someone saying that on graduation there is little time to spend with the graduate. We had about 5-6 hours, the afternoon, with Sean, but he was so into his new duties we could see that he was eager to get back to his Navy routine after celebrating with us.
I was so proud of him taking his duties so responsibly. As you may know when they are teens/young adults, some of us worry whether they will ever grow up and take responsibility. So I was very happy to see Sean becoming responsible about his duties.
We are so proud of him, he is still eager to learn his new posting. He will go out on a long patrol soon. Take Care - Peg
