I am a 68 year old mom of two adult kids. My daughter joined the Navy at age 33! Her dad and I are excited about kicking off this new career with her. Her brother was in the US Marine Corps and now works in the private sector. My husband and I continue to work full time. I am a photographer, a gardener and a knitter.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
At Boot Camp now
When I heard “Navy,” I...
was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
provide a wide variety of opportunities, careers and security.
Our Navy experience so far...
has been positive and maturing.

Hi. I just wanted you to know that I was in the same situation as you are. My daughters letter didn't arrive for many days after. I got the box... but the letter was delayed for some reason. I promise, it will come and you will feel so much better. Then, you will live for the next letter. Then, the first call will come from Waukegan, IL and your heart will stop. My daughter graduates next week. I am a veteran...and I know what she is going through, so that makes it hard and easy, at times. But, when you get the letter, you will have an outlet (address) to write letters now. That will make you feel better. The letters are few and far between at first, but they will get Sundays off from 0700-1300 for personal time and letters typically arrive around Thursday or Friday. Then more calls if they get rewarded. Keep the faith...there is a process and in 8 weeks, it will be over!
