My son left for bootcamp on Wednesday and I've been crying off and on ever since. I feel so lost not beling able to call him, FB him or contact hm in any way. I never thought it would be this difficult. I'm really struggling. I'm not worried about his safety, just feel so disconnected, like he's gone forever. He is my firstborn too, maybe that's it? I don't know, but he reached this milestone that I feel like I wasn't prepared for. Anyone else feel like that?
Maybe so?? The only address I have for my daughter (Kristina) so far is the one I got from her Recruiter, and it says she is in DIV. 096 and Ship 03???
I got Div. 096 but didn't get a ship # just the Name Hopper.......
Let's keep in touch, and when we get letters from our girls we may know more?(0:
There was no place to reply under your post NavyDoodle... but absolutely keep in touch!
Robin here is the ship # for the USS Hopper Ship 03: USS Hopper
MY DAUGHTER IN LAW IS WITH THE USS HOPPER SHIP #03,SHE GRADUATES FROM MICH ON MARCH 16TH

It's so hard to let go, isn't it? I tried to look at the box and make myself think, "Ok, you knew this was coming, this just means that everything is going as expected." That's all I want to hear too, just another 10 seconds to hear "I'm ok, Mom.",,,,,
we r never readt to let go! i am still waiting for the letter
i listen to her voicemails just to feel better
So who got three socks back in their box? Only one sock made it back home here :)
