I'm writing this with a broken heart...My daughter was struggling with some separation anxiety in regards to leaving her family and her boyfriend. The Navy decided to cancel her contract saying that she is a risk. They don't want her to get to bootcamp and be sent home because of separation anxiety. I'm devastated and wish I could push her through this initial scary part of leaving her loved ones.

Divorce is never easy, and it’s important to…Continue

I just received a call from my SR son, he's been in boot camp a couple of weeks now. The reason he was allowed to call was for his security clearance, and they needed him to call and ask for a couple of thing's. In that phone call I asked if he was free to talk a little bit and he said "ya sure". I asked him how he was doing and he said was fine, but then he started to not sound "fine", he said " I'm doing this for you and dad". I noticed his voice sounded terrible, like he had a…Continue
