Welcome Nuke mom! Expect your son to be very busy with school work, once he classes up. The school is very difficult for most of the sailors, but encourage him, as he will need you to be very strong for him. A school is first, then Power School, then Prototype. Is he an MM, EM, or ET...the length of training time depends on what his rate is.
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
Doing ok! Really missing the boy! More than I thought I would.
Been stalking the mailman waiting for the form letter telling us his ship/division etc so we can write.
Actually, I've already got one letter done and ready to mail and working on another. I write sort of "diary style" during the day. I'll number the envelopes when I mail them so he'll read them in order.
