Profile Information

About me:
I'm a single mother of two boys (MEN); they both joined the Navy within 3 months of each other 3 1/2 years ago. I have to say I was surprised to say the least that both my children would enlist; I'm so very proud of them and their convictions.

We come from military families; my father was in the Air Force during WWII and my son's father's family were in the Army, from their Grandfather who fought in WWII, to their Uncles and their father who fought in both the Korean War and Vietnam. So when they both decided to go into the Navy it was definitely a surprise on both sides but they of course are very proud of both of them as 'WE' are 'ALL' proud of our military here on "Navy for Moms' I'm sure.

I work nights so if my little blurb is a little scattered I apologize...I will clean it up when I'm more awake.

Both David and Jeromey call me whenever they can, David is my eldest and recently deployed this past March to Afghanistan; Jeromey is a Submariner stationed on Guam.

I sure miss them so much... Jeromey is my youngest, since he's joined the Navy we've been able to visit during his leave once a year... this year he was able to come home for Christmas. He was also able to visit with his older brother David down in California before he was deployed.

I'm so very happy that this site exists...THANK YOU for sharing :-)
I am here to support or represent my:

Hi Elisa,
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. June is crazy for me at school, I was there till way after 5 each day and then come home to even more work to be ready for the next day. I am finally done but had a major project I had to finish before the next school year which starts for us teachers on July 13th. I turned it over to my principal for final revisions yesterday. I then need to make corrections and then go in for copying so I can present to the staff next Wednesday. I swore I would have no outside distractions till it was done!!

I don't actually have to go back till mid August except for two gays of meetings next week. We are year round and on a track system and I am on the first track off. I start the new school year on vacation when the other 3 tracks start back! We teach for 4 months and then have a month off. I love year round and the breaks all year instead of only three months in the summer.

Just curious if you have heard a return date yet from David? You can email my private email where we can share more info. Are you going down to see the plane come in? We went for the Okinawa Deployment homecoming and hope to be at this one too!

Keep in touch and I will try to be much better. The beginning of the year is pretty busy but not as crazy as the end of the year with report cards, open house, kinder promotion, new kindergarten orientation, IEP meetings, Retention meetings, oh it just goes on and on!! Then I volunteer for the huge beginning of the year project when the end of the year just ended! I am crazy but it makes more sense than other teachers who are already getting all their stuff together for the first day of school. I at least have till the middle of August!

Hi Elisa,
I checked out your profile and will have to ask my son Brandon if he knows your son David. I see he is a CM, my son is an EO but I think they are both Alpha dogs. I will be going down to Port Hueneme in August when they come home. We are about 6 hours from Ventura, we live in Sacramento. I was very happy that Brandon got Port Hueneme it would have been really hard having him in Gulfport. He joined NMCB in April of 07 and made E3 the last go round.This deployment has been the hardest yet but Brandon calls at least once a week if not more. Email is sketchy but he usually answers my facebook emails within a week but usually just a one liner. I will be glad when they are back and he can call more regularly! I teach Kindergarten in the Elk Grove District and we are year round so I still have 2 more weeks of school. I get my long break over the summer, 7 weeks, and won't have to go back till mid August. Praying he will be home on time and I can see him for a bit before I have to go back to a new class. If not then I already have a substitute lined up to cover for me when I go down and see the plane come in. When they came home from the last deployment it was a hassle of when they were really getting in and that was with good communication. Not looking forward to that dance again. I guess he can call us when he leaves Kuwait and we can head down and just wait till he gets there. I assume they will fly in to Pt Magu but who knows. He thinks they might be bussed to the base first to turn in their weapons before they can see family. Did your son deploy to Iraq with 5 and if so how did they come home? I think I read that he had been a Seabee for 3 1/2 years so a few more months than mine.

Well it is getting late and I have school tomorrow. I best end this. Love to hear from you and your experiences. Glad to find another mom from The Professionals! Where do you live in Oregon?

Hi Elisa

thanks! It's great to hear from you. Joey is stationed in San Diego on the Nimitz. He left for bc at the end of August. He has such a maturity to him--dream on that I could even be half that! lol

He is coming home in less than a month and I can't wait to see him. I'm thankful we at least have email when he is out to sea. He plans on surprising his girl friend at work--like he surprised me Christmas morning. What a great kid:)

Tommy is doing really well...thanks. He just had surgery last month and has been doing infusion of antibiotics every day at the hospital. I'm confident he will be healthy soon.

I look forward to hearing more about you and your family. Have a great weekend

Annie

Cant wait for any pictures I might get. I don't think these kids understand how important it is to remember (in photos) for there family that they will have some day. They need to be able to show thier kids what they have done and places they have been. I am going to send you an email so you will have my personal address so if either one of us get pic's we can send them that way.

I'm so glad you checked back with N4M I know there are other moms out there I just couldn't find any. I'm missing Jason already. We had a nice visit last night, but it's always hard to hold back the tears sometimes. Did you know they are getting ready for the Submarine B-day ball? Got the email from the onbudsman. Maybe the boys will get us some pics of that. Talk to you soon, Melissa

I guess we know when each others son's are out to sea ha? I'm was told where all the pics for the comand are but no one on the other end is following through so I can get on that web site. Thats Government for ya. Please keep in touch, Melissa

Elisa I'm sorry I fill like I drove you away, I was just so excited when I say your pictures. I miss Jason so much, I have a close relationship with both my kids and so I guess I over-reacted. I'm waiting on an invite to a site so I can have axcess to more photos hopefully I can find one of your son for you. By the way my son told your son we might be talking and I guess it raised eye-brows hahaha hope we can keep visiting, Melissa
