The last few days have been good ones! I got the box full of dirty clothes! and then the next day I got the form letter with my sons address and he is in Ship 04 Division 287 and then on Saturday Morning I got the surprise of a lifetime and got an early phone call! We got to talk for quite a while and it was so amazing to hear his voice on the other end of the line! He was so calm and really sounded great. He is looking forward to some more "meat" to the training- says he's kind of sick of…Continue
Our daughter left for bootcamp on Wednesday and will say this is one of the hardest things a mom/parent can go through. My husband and I know it will get easier but these first few days are sooo hard. She just graduated high school and now has left for a wonderful new experience. We are grateful for our son that is still in high school and plays football. This has helped as it keeps us busy.
I came to this page and so far am soo happy. With everyones questions and responses, I…Continue
The day to leave is approching...i feel the anxiety of my son shipping out to boot camp building.
I am going to miss him so bad dont know how to deal with the seperation. he is my baby boy and going stright out of highschool into the real world is a little overwelming to me.
We are now at 11 days until we hug my stepson "see you later" with tear filled eyes as he leaves for bootcamp. He comes in and out of the house and I am boasting while he is there, laugh at his jokes, and beam at his smile. He leaves to go hang out with his friends and I fall completely apart. My husband is a Navy Veteran from Desert Storm and assures me this will be an adventure of a lifetime for him. What ever will I do without him there? What will I do when he doesn't sleep in his…Continue

My daughter will be in A school for Nuclear Field, and we are going to go there for our anniversary. I know she has to go back to the barracks at night on the weekend, so wondering what a good place to stay nearby would be. We are thinking of taking day trips with her into Charleston, maybe beach even and thought about staying there but thought it would be easier and cheaper to stay near her so we can get her back at night. Any ideas?
My daughter went to meps today and because of a lower Asvab score she was toldthe only job that she qualified for was culinary. They told her to take it and they will find her something else before her ship out date in Feb 2015. Is that true? Could she possibly retake her asvab? Just feel like they forced her into a job she will hate.Continue

I'm thinking about my son. Worried. Hoping he's ok. Tears flowing when I think about it. Anyone got any advice?
Last night my son was killed. He was stabbed to death in Phoenix Az. Michael was a Seabee for many years.
If there is anyone in the Phoenix Az area that knows anything or heard anything at all. PLEASE PLEASE contact the Phoenix police.
For now I have to figure out how to bring my son home.…Continue
As navy wives, we go through basic training, A school and C school, and most of us will face a deployment in our life. I wrote about having trust in our relationships and how important it seriously is in order to have a healthy relationship. Hope it can help you in this journey you are currently on.

Sailor(son) is in Groton and loving it but wanting to get started on classes. He is still on hold and patiently waiting for his security clearance. He is enjoying New England and the interesting sites around the area. He has been to NYC, Providence, Boston and Newport. In a couple of months he will have been in the Navy for a year. Wow it just doesn't seem like it.

Friendships are needed in our crazy journey called Navy life. Everyone needs to feel like they can relate to someone in any kind of level, but sometimes we can get hurt by choosing the wrong people in our life. I wrote a blog about how choosing positive influential friendships can help you during this journey. Enjoy :)…Continue
