My son left on July 11th. He is ship 12 div 286. I received my form letter and his package. in the form letter, it said that if there was delay due to injury or sickness that we would receive a call letting us know what was going on. However, I received my first hand written letter and it was short and said that he had news that there was a small possibility that he could be sent home due to chest pains. He said he would write more later. He said we should know by today (7/31) if he would be…Continue
Find myself puttering around the house staying busy, but all the while my thoughts are of my son and how he is doing, and what my new role is. I have made more cards, made book marks, and have volunteered to writing letters and cards to men and women in BC, currently serving, and in the hospital. I stumbled on a recent video of my son that is on my cell phone, I have been so full of emotions and thoughts that I forgot it was on there, lol!! I played it over and…Continue

I'm going to boot camp in March 2013 and I'm looking for other women who are in the same position of mine. We can encourage each other and work out too. I live in St. Petersburg, FL
Well we are 14 day away from my son leaving for BC... the days seem to be flying by. So far we are all doing good on the outside, his dad told me today that I was going to see the big baby he was when he has to say goodbye, the thought is killing me. We are so proud of our son all the different emotions are weird. He is spending alot of time with his little brother going to the zoo and the movies and stuff. I really am trying not to think about it alot. I am going with him tommrow to his…Continue
Today marks the 4 week mark since my son left for boot camp. As I read back over my last blogs, I realize how much I have changed over these last 4 weeks. I can only imagine how much my son has changed.

My daughter left July 25th for Great Lakes, Ill. She was excited and nervous all at the same time. I got the 10 second phone call from her stating she made it and that I will get a package within 3 weeks. I wanted more time with her to see how things are going, is she doing ok. I told her I loved her and that we were proud of her. She has been out of high school for almost one and half years, so she is exactly a baby, she is 19, but…Continue
This weekend has been filled with hugs and stares of my young man that will be leaving in 8 days. I have so much to do and yet I just want to watch his every move....as if he is that 1 year old taking his first steps. In a way, he is....he is trying so hard to be the man he should be and taking those first steps into adulthood.…Continue
My youngest left for boot camp on July 2nd. I am very proud of him and supported his decision to join the Navy. Even signed the papers as soon as he turned 17 so that he would get in DEP and start learning as much as soon as possible. He has a girlfriend who I really like and she is so supportive of his decision to be a sailor and unlike so many young kids in love they understand that they can have goals and lives outside of each other. They are both very mature. When my son arrived to…Continue
I am a new Navy mom any one from Phoenix, Az. any one from his division 270 ship 12/ if you want to talk . I am around.
My daughter left to start her basic training. She left for Great Lakes center on Wednesday, July 25, 2012. She was very excited and nervous. I am just plain nervous about it. I miss her terribly already. Not sure if I will have a melt down, because I did not have it the day she left. I did cry, but only if someone else cried and then I was alright. It is weird not having her home. Even our dog (Bentley) misses her. He is just moping around and yesterday when I was cleaning her room,…Continue

How is it, that a BOX and a LETTER can bring on so many mixed emotions at once, lol!! From getting the box to getting the letter today, my emotions ran crazy.......excitement, adrenlen rush, relieved, sad, happy, teary, and many more to say the least. This child that I carried for 9 months and raised for 18, is now an adult and making huge decisions......and he has left, in search of the many things that will begin to mold him for his future. He is my last to leave the nest, and I find…Continue
JUST TRYING TO FIND IF ANYONE ELSE'S SAILOR IS IN THE SAME CREW AND WOULD LIKE TO CHAT LET ME KNOW!
My son left college and joined the Navy. He is at boot camp right now and we just got his first student loan bill today. He said his student loan would get paid. Does anyone know how that works? Do we have to pay it and he will get reimbursed? Does anyone know who I would contact to find out?
Is that really a "3" in front of that number??? What happened? It seems like it wasn't that long ago that it was in the 100's. And now.... it is just over a month left…
Countdown: 44 Days till Boot Camp
So, I suppose its time to begin facing the fact that soon my baby will be leaving for the U.S. Navy. Up till now, I've basically tried to keep my mind busy learning new things about boot camp, A-School, and Nuke School. If I keep busy, I don't have to face that he…
