My son arrived at BC from NY on 09/09/14 and we just received the letter .. yahoo! My husband ran to the post office with our letters and we are notifying friends and family of his address. My husband missed the FedEx truck so he was a little disappointed but he signed the delivery note for tomorrow. I'm currently traveling on business so I appreciate this site and everyone sharing their thoughts and experience. I'm so afraid I'll miss that first phone call that I have my cell phone on the…Continue
I'm so excited about USS America Commissioning Ceremony, October 11th! My husband and I received our invitations, and RSVP! So we're ready to go!!! I can't wait! I'm real excited about this opportunity! In my previous blog, I mentioned how I always wanted to go to Fleet Week. My son never knew about it until he mentioned the commissioning ceremony. My son has been on his ship since April. I communicated with him here and there. The last time I seen my son was when he came home for my…Continue

Well the day has finally come for the last of my sons things in his room to be packed up:( He will be leaving for GL in two days 9/17. I have read so much information to prepare us for this transition in his life. So much that I feel so overwelmed and afraid that I'm gonna forget half of everything to do and say to him. On a good note though......we had a nice going away party for him yesterday with family and friends. He will take these memories with him and it will help him to keep strong…Continue
Today my 17 year old soon to be sailor Bradley leaves after school with his best friend and a couple others to Columbus for MEPS.
Last night he was tearing apart everything looking for his wallet that has his drivers license. At this moment I still have no idea if he found it. We may be going to the license bureau later. On a funny note, the NAVY certainly has there work cut out for them refining, reshaping my son.
I have cried more this past week then I can recall. And…Continue

Orginally we were told my son's A school was 6 months. Now that he's at bootcamp he sent a letter saying its about 52 weeks. How long before will he find out his duty station orders? And how long will it take him to get to phase 2? Any other information about MA's A school would be great... I can forward the infor to him via mail, so at least he has a heads up. Not sure if its the same process as my older son went threw for his A school. Thanks in advance.
So I havent written a blog in a while so heres some updates. On saturday (Sept 6) I got my first phone call. I dont think ive ever been that happy in my life. We got to talk for about 30 minutes, it felt like only 4, but it was just amazing to hear his voice. Hes being so strong and you can hear in his voice how happy he is that hes actually doing this. Well everyday since then ive sent a letter and even some silly cards just to cheer him up and put a smile on his face. Well today i got my…Continue

My daughter informed us that her recruiter called her today and informed her that her ship date has changed from Dec. 16th to Dec 9th. Our time just got shorter with her.
Not sure if it's really a good idea or not?
I currently work for a company doing Quality Assurance. Yes, Quality Assurance. So you know when you call your local cable company and they say - "This call may be monitored for Quality Assurance purposes."? Well I'm actually the person that listens and monitors. So those people really exist. LOL
Anywho... My company allows me to work for home to do this. Currently I work in the building and work full time. I was…Continue
Our son left for boot camp today. There was a farewell party at our house for family and friends and we made sure we spent lots of time together before his departure date. We got to spend some extra time in Albany NY because there was a change in his departure date that his recruiter was unaware of. I was pleasantly surprised at how welcoming and considerate the staff was at the MEPS center and we got to take photos of him being sworn in. But, that didn't make it any easier to say good…Continue
I have decided this is where I need to vent. I have a son, that leaves in March for boot camp, and twin teenage girls. The four of us are very close. We supported each other and became very close during my divorce from their Dad. None of them are close with their Dad. I do not have a problem cutting the apron strings, because I know it is best for my son. I know the Navy can teach him what I was not able to,…Continue
