I have one in the Navy an MA ( Master -at- Arms) He is also an "Expert" marksman on each weapon. He is very proud of that as is his father and I. We have a daughter graduating college to be a teacher and another son who is graduating high school. he's not sure what he wants to do yet.
Hi, I'm Shell. (Steve's Mom on here). I was invited by catchingcatherine after posting a question about the Nuke program on yahoo answers.
My 17 year old son signed up 1-26-2007 for US Navy Nuclear Power Program. He will be leaving for basic 9-4-08. But has requested to leave sooner if an opening comes up.
hi, im patti. my son enlisted last september or october and also the nuclear program. he also wanted to leave sooner if he could but was told at that time, feb. 4th, 2008 --- well needless to say feb 4 came and went and he is now in bootcamp. i remember it seemed like such a far away time, february. oh my god, it really went to fast. i could not believe it when it was time to say goodbye. appreciate every second now but know that this whole change in life is really for the good. my son has wrote me twice now and he seems happy.... thats all we can ask for...
Hi Patti , my son enlisted last year also but had to wait until Feb 4 , when he told me the date I thought it was so far away then before I knew it his recriuter was here to get him , that was probably one of the hardest days of my life , I really never gave it much thought about how hard it would be to say good bye , but since then I have gotten a few letters from him and he was able to call last week , it was so good to hear his voice and he sounded so positive . He will be graduating on March 28 ,I can't wait to see him , God bless all those that serve and those waiting for them . Lisa Flynn
