My son called tonight which totally through me for a loop!! i don't think my stomach could have dumped any further!!! All he wanted was his bank account routing # & acct # from the account at home here he left for me to pay his car payment. He didn't say much except that he was pressed for time & needed it asap.......now I'm really rattled. We set it up so that his money would be going into the navy federal acct. i wonder why they wanted it??? UUGGGG!!!!
Dont worry they are probably setting up his direct deposit and he evidently wanted in that account insteadof the navy one he shouldve taken a bank slip with him but probably didnt know ... but nice you got to hear his voice :)
LOL, not really, I just miss my son so much I read every comment on this one and remembered those that were close to 122 :) It is a difficult site to get around on, so much information!! I'm just glad I could hook a couple up who have loved ones in the same S&D. Hope I find one soon!
Hi Darla, yep my daughter is ship 11 div 121. She actually called my cell today, but I was in a "no phone" meeting...I was so bummed. She needed some contact info. and finally got a hold of my husband. She said it was really hard...more than she expected. I think this first couple of weeks must be super tough. Would be glad to talk, although I really am having a hard time navigating this sight. Guess I'm not that great at forums. Have you heard from your son, your box or letter?
yes i have received the box and the letter yeah...i was so excited sorry for getting back to you so late....my husband and i have literally been racing to the mailbox... did you receive a letter about graduation my son sent a letter stating a april 8th graduation? i'm hoping we can find a lot of others with that division number so we can stick together...
