I am the proud Mom of Alex, who goes by Xander, & went to Great Lakes November 1st, 2011. We also have a daughter Emily, who is 24 & just moved back home after 3 months in Florida. We actually only had about 3 weeks of being empty nesters & that's fine with me!
My son just got back from his first deployment December 2012. He is stationed in Hawaii, on the USS Greeneville, a fast attack sub. He loved the deployment, 6 months long and got his dolphins and is a 3rd class petty officer now. He was home with us on leave the end of December for 2 weeks. We dropped him off at the airport Jan 12th, but have not heard from him since. Worried, but hoping no news is good news.
My son was in that group also. The video's have been posted just a few minutes ago. I can't wait to see the pictures, but need some assistance finding the page. I sent a friend request to jennn? for help. So thankful 4 the elk's in whiting for the kindness shown to the recruits, friends and family making it a blessed and merry christmas 2011.
