"My son is on a carrier. They can be on a destroyer, airplane, submarine, land. You cans send food but they also have food at the mess and there are fast food places on base. You can visit them bust to wait for them to phase up so they can go off…"
I have a question and hope someone has an answer. My son's W2 showed that he was still a CA resident and I need to know how he gets it changed to Washington.I don't think he even knows who to talk to. Any info. is…"
Join the USS Bataan group and ask for the ombudsmen number. After you contact them they will contact your son to see if it is ok for them to send you updates about his ship. Texting and emailing usually work for me. LOL
"Just look up in the discussion forum it will give you all kinds of info. At least as much that is allowed. Lol. My son is a 6 year CTT and finished his schooling at the end of October. He was in Pensacola for about 18 months. If you kid is a 4 year…"
Cinder... strokes are scarry. Please take care of yourself at this time! You need to be at your best healthwise, so you can focus on what the Drs are saying and doing. I will keep you and your husband in my heart. I hope they figure things out soon.
Thank you for your input about will he or not- I really am having a hard time about it and I will support his decision no matter what. Thanks for reaching out to me I reall appreciate it. Thanks Sue- New York
Hi Cinder...How are you? Just got back from a 9-day trip to see my son at Corry! I drove his truck to him (along with his fiance') and have to say it was one of the greatest trips I've ever done...2125 miles and worth every second of driving!
I believe you had asked how tough CTT school was...My son seems to be doing really good in his CTT class. It is tough but he finished middle of pack with his grades - either a 92 or 94%. He said the lowest score in the class was an 89%. I have to laugh cuz this is a kid I could barely get thru high school and then he tested high on his entrance test! Figures...I always knew he had it in him! He has finished A school and started C school this past week. He will finish this on July 20 and then take 2 other short classes. He is 6 year CTT so he did alot of the classified stuff in A school and now this is the maintenance part of the school and he said he likes it alot! Has your son started school yet?
So sorry about the delay in your question! Would love to get together some time...we could meet half way!
I'm not really sure how he's doing. I've only gotten the 1 letter and 1 call. He usually muddles through, so I'm sure he's fine. But it would be nice to hear even a grunt in response to how are you doing?
