Thank you for the welcomes. I'm very new at this. Please let me know if there is anything I should change and I will. Since I'm not computer saavy, if I need help I'll ask. I will try to add more on my profile when I get a chance and I look forward to "meeting" and chatting with you.

I am just starting to adjust to the thought of my daughter joining the navy. It's not that i don't think that it's a noble cause and it's not that I think only other peoples children should enlist. It's just that she has spent her entire high school career preparing herself for college, taking multiple AP courses and racking up hundreds of hours of volunteering. I kinda feel as tho this whole Navy thing has been sprung on me. All this Navy talk is so foreign to me because I have no experience… Continue

My son is a fine young man and he made the choice to join the Navy to serve this country. The Navy will mold him into a fine Sailor. He is proud of his choice and I'm proud of him.I can't thank him enough for his choice to be a proud member of the U. S. Navy. I LOVE YOU IAN.

OK, maybe I am old fashion. I need to know if I am out of tune with today’s rules of etiquette. I remember when the male would do the pursuing, and the female was the pursued.…

Here are some of the photos from the Civil War Reenactment we went to in Yorktown, VA. It was really cold that day, but we all had a good time anyway! After spending the day watching the war and interacting with the soldiers on both sides, we went to Andrea's Italian Restaurant (best pizza in Hampton Roads) for pizza, then to (believe it or not) Coldstone Creamery for ice cream.

Hello everybody if you guys can please guide me. I know it’s kind of early to ask this but time has been flying by fast and I don't want to be rushing last minute and not know what I'm doing.

I never imagined that I would be missing my son this much. As an older recruit with a wife and young son, we had already gone through those rights of passage and his life was very much independent of ours. But I'm finding that the longer I go without seeing him the more I miss him. There's that mother thing that just won't let go-as I'm sure so many of you understand. Is he homesick(that's pretty much a given, I guess), is he sleeping at nights, is he eating well? Just all… Continue

was doing pretty well until "the box" came in the mail today. There is no letter or adress with it. Does this come later. Did anyone else find this difficult to receive???

Thank you to everyone who left me such encouraging messages. I am sorry it has taken me a while to get back in touch. On Tuesday, I came home to find "the box" waiting on our porch. I took it to my daughter-in-law's home for her. Even though I didn't open it, just seeing that box made everything so real. Then earlier tonight my daughter-in-law called me and said that she got the official letter in the mail with info and she was so happy that my son had a few lines written on the bottom. As of… Continue

I know I am supposed to try to find the answer to my question in the existing blogs and forums. I tried. So, My son has been told to get a passport. He is in San Diego. For some reason I find unfathomable, he doesn't know where to go or how to accomplish this. Also, we are all wondering just why he might need one, although I can speculate a LOT of good reasons. He is marginally communicative, frustrating his Dad & me.

Went to my sons grad in Great Lakes March 19th ship09 Div131. It was both joyful and sad. Joyful because my son has turned into a fine man. But sad because my boy is gone. My mom told me this would happen. Both my bothers were in the Navy. I'm still crying:( By the way what is with this no hug thing? Continue

My son graduates sometime in May 2010, I have never traveled to Illinois and need some help.
I am driving there (about 10 hours) but I dont want to drive my car to the PIR.
I need some suggestions (within distance from Naval Training Facility) on accomidations for the weekend. Even if you tell me which places to avoid at least I will know where to begin. Thank you
