She's only in boot camp but already the support from people I have never even met before is amazing!
My husband met with a gentleman this morning who is retiring from the Navy later this year, right now has been in for 24 years! He wished my daughter luck, then as they finished up their meeting he turned to my husband and told him to give him a call when she gets to San Diego. My husband was a little taken back and asked why? He told him that he knows alot of high ranking people in the Navy in San Diego and that he can put my mind at rest by having some people watch out for her.
I have never met this man, and probably never will, but his thoughtful understanding of what it's like for me, as a mom, to worry and wonder if she's o.k., and willingness to just make a phone call to ease my mind is the most priceless gift I could get!
