Don't miss him before he leaves.
Check out the info I previously left for you on your My Page to help you prepare.
Valuable help! I am missing him a bit b/f he leaves as he's spending time w friends too. I am so glad I found navyformoms!
There will be lots of info and support here for you.
Thank you! He is our last to leave home too (which makes it harder). Our others left for college, so I could call them all the time (which makes this leaving harder too). But yes, it is his journey he has wanted for a long time :)
maddy, I agree about the travelling. Besides Chicago we were able to visit our son in Charleston, SC, Ballston Spa, NY (twice) and Virginia (3 times). Not the most exotic places but still fun to visit! He's out of the Navy now but still lives in VA (and we are in CA) but he's heading to Michigan soon. Another place we can visit lol! Hang in there!
Jennifer I would Like to welcome you to Navy Moms, Congrats to your Son for taking this Journey! wishing him the Best! I see LemonElephant has left you some good information. Please take the time to read so you know you have everything well situated.
I love this meme - U.S. Navy Mom here :)
Thank you for your encouraging words and prayers. God bless you and your family too. Good tip on the notepad and words of encouragement. I bought my son a small New Testament bible with psalms and proverbs and he said mom, I have two of those already. Every time I go to MEPS there is a man handing them out. :)
