Taxi Fares

Good Morning:

I am editing this blog post because there have been several instances recently where our Navy Families are paying too much money for cab fares or RIDE SHARES either from the airport or local service while visiting Great Lakes.

This document will save you heartache and money. Please read it in its entirety.

First and foremost, I want to thank all the administrators on the face book pages, Navy For Moms.com, and Navy Dads.com website for their outstanding…

security clearance question?

I was reading on another post, a spouse is on HOLD status after completing A school because of student loan debt?  Isn't that something that the recruiter is aware of before the recruit goes in?  I know my daughter has accumulated debt because of student loans and some others, but she is making arrangements now after completing boot camp.  Is that all the Navy is wanting to see that she is making arrangements to pay back the debt?

departure to A School

Well, our girl is anxiously waiting her departure for A School.  Talked to her yesterday and hopefully sooner than later.  I am thankful for all the things available for the sailors to occupy their time while they are in transition.  She seems to be more relaxed these last few phone calls.  I am truly thankful.  Lord, continue to be a fence about our girl and all those new recruits, new sailors, and all serving withing the armed…

Ship 12 Divison 195 PIR 5/27

I can't wait to kiss my Sailor! I'll be flying in from Atlanta. Any hotel suggestions, trying to book now before things get packed.

First letter!

I received  my  first letter and phone call  from my son. He actually  cried which is something  I haven't   seen him do in years. He had  lots  to  say. It was like someone  gave me back my heart that's been missing for 3 weeks. He says it's hard but he sounds like  he's dealing. Can't wait for graduation  so I can lay my eyes on him and wrap my arms  around him. This time  it will feel different. I'll  never take those hugs for granted  ever again.

Graduation and Liberty (+advice)

Well, our girl did it!  and because she was in 923 Division, they carried state flags, honor guard (I think) and one other thing (I can't remember).  Graduation was the most regimented ceremony I have ever attended.  Not your average High School graduation.  I can appreciate all the rules, because there is so much going on and so many family members in attendance.  Our girl and her division did an excellent job.  I was their 3rd graduation by that time, so they had down by then.  She…

Count down begins

I can remember it like it was just yesterday on July 9,2015 that my son was swearing in and we had a year until he left for boot camp. Now here it is today and we only have 76 days until he leaves on July 5,2016. I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. He graduates from high school next month and then we are going to go on a last family camping trip before he leaves. This is my oldest son. His brother is 11 and I think is having a hard time knowing that his brother will be leaving…

She's Checking In On Ike

The ship her father proposed to me on when I visited for the Independence Day cruise some 27 years. I thought I'd never see that ship again.  Nor did I care to, I couldn't wait for shore duty. Little did I know, my daughter who had not even been thought of at that time would end up serving in the future. And now the day has come for her to check-in on the Ike.  It feels surreal. I am still not looking forward to her deployment. I dread it. A navymom is totally different from a…

Out of my mind proud after PIR 4/15/16

I just wanted to talk a little bit about my most humbling and awe- inspiring experience with my sailor this weekend. I never in a million years would have thought this would be as amazing as it was. I feel like I am now a part of an exclusive and unique group of people who have so much to be proud of. I have never been a fan of the military, but was at my wit's end with my son. He was miserable after a breakup of a long-term relationship, stuck in a dead- end job, and despised school. This…

PIR 5/13/16 Ship 12 DIV 188 - 1st Letter home

Hello all,

It finally came.  Her first letter home.  She had some free time to write a couple letters on Sunday April 2nd and it arrived in Washington on Thursday April 8th so that should give you some time frame of postal transit.  

She wrote to me and her boyfriend and his family.

She said week one was a tough one because they are processing so many recruits.  She is not a fan of showering with 85 women but she finally was going to get to take a real shower now that…
