My fiance is stationed overseas and we're trying to figure out a way to call each other that won't be ridiculously expensive. I have AT&T and I added the international plan to my phone, and he got a cheap phone when he got there. I've been calling him that way, but its really expensive. We use skype, but we usually only get to do it about once a week. So is there another way to call each other that won't be too expensive?

SHIP 3 DIV 116; My son left for boot camp 2 weeks ago Sunday. I think it was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through.

I received a phone call the next night that he landed in Chicago and that he was using a friends phone that he made it there safe and had to go. Then I rec'd first of three phone calls that we will receive; Friday the 18th…Continue

GOT HIS FORM LETTER TODAY !!!!
WOW! We dropped Matt off at the hotel last night, lots of tears from mom and dad. He, on the other hand, was so excited! Today he begins his Navy journey. It is so quiet here without him. I think it is the not being able to talk with him that will be the hardest.
I am a very proud mama that my one and only has chosen to serve his country but I am also somewhat sad. Matt lived with us, ate with us, vacationed with us, loved us. He now begins his life, his journey as a…Continue
I am so happy that this website is here and I am happy I was accepted. I was reading some of the other blog post and realized that I am not alone. My son Damien decided he wanted to join the Navy and of course I wasnt happy about it because he is my only child. But after going with him to the recruiters and talking with them I feel much better about it. So since he is only 17 when he decided to join I agreed to sign the papers,and I figured he would join in April anyways because thats when…Continue

I'm so excited! Turns out he put my name on his list and now I get to see him Graduate! :D I've got 3 more weeks till I get to be within reach and I'm just so happy. Only problem I have now is what do I pack? He's graduating March 16 and I have no clue what the weather will be like. I heard I will be cold. I'm from Hawaii so mainland to me is always cold.
