We received our form letter Thursday and was very excited to get it. Saying a prayer and keeping my fingers crossed for the March 30th graduation.
My name is Terry, my son Christopher (SR Ehnes) is in this division as well. We're from Central California. Some of you I've met on our FB forum page but this is my first response here.... I've found N4M's to be a little confusing & hard to follow. Any suggestions on how to navigate through these pages would be appreciated!
I'm so happy to be connecting with more of our division families. Like all of you, the support is so comforting. I'm so anxious to hug my child. I miss him so much! 20 days left!!! I also look forward to meeting all of you at the meet & greet's and PIR. Have a great rest of your weekend. I look forward to keeping in touch with all of you.
My boyfriend Aaron said that they will get a call within a week so all you ladies be ready and keep your phones on you!!
TheresaAnn - Welcome! I am one of the "veteran" moms here on the PIR groups! I know it is different from FB but you will find lots of support here from your Division Moms and then on the main "wall" of the TG we veteran moms hang out there the most to answer questions and lend a shoulder. It is the main spot for all of the members of the PIR to "hang out".
Ladies...one thing that is very different from FB is that the N4M Community Guidelines( See them HERE ) state that last names of Sailors are not allowed anywhere on this site. So, you will need to remove, revise and repost without your SR's last names. Just simply highlight, copy and paste your original post into the reply box...remove the last name and repost. Then delete the old post. If you need ANYTHING please don't hesitate to ask...that is what we veterans are here for! (The other most regular veterans are diannep, LaLa Ribbon Queen and zStratMom) Please don't let this deter you from this site...we are truly glad you are here and want to help!
Hi Grace, My son is from Maine. Are there more in ship 12/100 that are from Maine?? I haven't heard. My son's name is Joey. Nice to meet you! Cathie
Hello Ship 12 Division 100, Good morning!
My son said they may get phone calls today so keep your phones close!!!!
I hope they do! Love you all!
Hello moms and friends! Has anyone received a call from 12/100? I have had my phone glued to me all day and I have turned friends down to go out tonight for fear I will miss his call. No biggie, I like to be home after a long week!! Plenty of time for fun later :) Please let us know if you get a call! 14 more days!!!
Hi Janis, I am still thinking positive. It's 8pm Illinois time right now and calls could come at any time. March 11th was my last letter too. Let's think positive and look forward to more letters if no calls come tonight. Have a good weekend!
Hello Ladies I also got at letter from Brandon dated on the 12th - he did mention that they might be able to make calls but he didn't think the division would do that good he didn't say why. It could be just that he wasn't feeling good I guess he has been really sick they have him on several different medicines and the doc sent him for an x-ray because something didn't sound right in his lungs - ugh and nothing I can do!!! except sit here and worry oh my. I so hope they do call just so I can hear for myself Brandon is ok - he said he has never felt this aweful - and pink eye to boot. TWO WEEKS once I get to hug my son I know this will be one of the greatest moments in life. Please let us know if anyone gets a call. Hug Tora
Hi Tora, I hope your son feels better! Two more weeks!
