Lynn, Your above post cracked me up! :)
My son graduated from BC the end of May and is down in SC now. He starts A school tomorrow. Before he left for BC he was leaning toward carriers but he changed his mind during BC after talking to different people. He signed up for subs during BC so I hope he enjoys it. I hope your son enjoys it and I glad to hear your husband did too.
What did your son do between boot camp and starting A school? My son is in boot camp now and is to graduate July 29th.
They give the sailors odd jobs to do until they start school. My sons group was responsible for cleaning one building and that's what they did for 3-4 hours a day and then the rest was free time. They also had PT every morning and they have to keep their rooms clean for inspections. It was a nice down time after boot camp. He's now in A school and has been very busy. I wish your son luck and hope everything goes fine for him.
Lemonelephant is correct that your son won't be allowed to go that far. I think there is a 50 mile limit for the liberty they get after graduation plus they have to be back early in the evening.
Your going to have one busy weekend! :)
