Yes I am - just got on last night. I am a Grandmother of a ship 4 Div 804 SR. We raised our grandson - so he is more like a son to me. Where do you get the scarf's and do we do anything special to them?? Thanks for the response.
Hi all! There are a few new people that have joined recently... I may have friended you and asked for your Sr's name.... I know there is a concern for privacy.
I want to apoligise if I asked and you didnt feel comfortable. Anything said in private on our personal email, stays that way and is NOT put on the main discussion board like this one and the 2/11/11 general one. We are ALL MINDFUL of our SR's job and the need for keeping their future jobs a bit more secret due to the type of jobs they will be involved in.
I and a few moms ask so we can try and build that community family for us as moms and for our sons. We know our sons will encounter each other either at BC or while they transition over to Pre-Buds. So its not that they wont know each other.
I think it is nice for them to know that we to have our own "804" support group started and as they venture down this road, it will get tougher for them, physically and mentally, and the more support you and I will need. We will not be able to express or worry them about our feelings to much as they will have enough stress trying to make it through each day at Pre Buds and Buds. It will really nice to know each other and TRUST that we can rely on each other since we all understand the feeling.
Some of us are Moms, Grandparents, Spouses or Siblings BUT we all obviously love our SR enough to be on here and help each other out.
I hope this clears up any questions or concerns and I look forward to our group meeting at PIR!
PS-If I missed you on Private Email. let me know and send me friend request. Thanks :)
Not sure if that is possible but maybe in Pre Buds? I know once you get your seal class number it is private and you have to be approved to join.
I think for Pre Buds that could be a good idea! and I know the SEAL groups are private and you have to get approved.
I just wanted to stress that no names are ever mentioned on here due to this being public but our PM on the emails are private to who ever you are talking too.
Finally here -
I got my fleece material (yellow/gold) and a tan piece to put down the middle. Looks like a great special ops combo - very subtle, not much contrast! LOL!
We've received a few letters/notes but no phone calls. Nothing in letters has caused concern - he's working to get where he wants to go.
