Im hoping to find other moms out here that have a son/daughter going to boot camp at the same time. It is only 1 week away I have so many emotions, hoping Im not alone. Not sure how Im going to handle my life without my son at home. Oh my goodness trying so hard to be strong but it is not easy.
He didnt say he wanted to come home, he really didnt get to say much of anything, and hung up super fast but I could tell by his voice he was having a hard time.
he sounded a little scared on the phone call. we told him to expect the worse and maybe it wouldnt be that bad.
honestly I am having a hard time not crying.....
Hello Ladies - how is everyone doing? Im hanging in there Ive cried a few times Im actually doing better than I thought I would - however I miss Brandon so very much Im ready for him to come home already. When I received my phone call thank god Brandon seem to be fine, I wish I knew how he was doing now. This is the hardest part not being able to talk to him. I did receive his box today ugh, I smell his scent omg. Im not sure if the address on the box is the one we can write to or not - does anyone know? Hugs Tora
My son called at midnight. He didn't get to speak very long either. He kind of chuckled and said he had to go. they were being yelled at. We prepared him for what was coming. It's very very very long day. Everything is new and different. My husband and I are both Navy veterans. I was in one enlistment, my husband two enlistments. My son was born in Spain as a matter of fact. Your kids will be Ok. They'll get the hang of things. Believe me. It'll be ok.
tora720 - my son is currently on a plane to GL. I can't wait for him to land. Then I'll anxiously be waiting that first call.
Hello. My daughter also left for BC on Tuesday, 1/31/12. This is harder than I thought it would be.
My daughter left the lst andI am having a Very hard time. Knowing how she is feeling right now is the hardest part.In a few weeks it should be better. Hopefully...
Anyone here have a son named Jeremy that is going to be a Corpsman with a Marine Unit? If so I meet your son, he was a room mate with Brandon at the hotel. When we went to the MEPs on Tuesday morning Brandon interduced us and I ask Jeremy if I could have a hug :) - Brandon and Jeremy clicked and they were hoping the would be roomed together. They will also be going to San Antiono Texas together.
OMG today is only day 5, hoping they were able to write letters home today. I already have a 3 page letter to mail as soon as I receive an address to sent it to. Hugs Tora
My daughter left the 1st. and i juste received her box. She had sounded terrible on the "im here" call. But the box made it a little better because she wrote her name all over it with squiggle lines.Shes a doodler.!! She must have known i needed that! Still sad though...Now cant wait for call and letter!!!
I received what I thought was a letter from Brandon today but it was more like a welcome letter, what an emontional rollercoaster omg. The only thing Brandon wrote on it was Hey Guys, I love you! I am doing great, don't worry about me. See you soon. UGH made my heart ache even more. Did find out the gratuation date is March 30th so only 59 day and I will be able to see him. Brandon is on Ship 12, Div 100, anyone else have this letter?
