I'm having a hard time separating MY experience in the Navy (20 years ago, my boot camp and A school no longer exist, and my ship has been decommissioned) from my son's pending experience. My husband (also a Navy vet) and I have been giving him all kinds of advice, but every time I turn around I learn about something ELSE that has changed drastically from my own experience. From uniforms to policies, everything is different, but it's still the same in many ways, too.
I think it might actually be easier to be a parent who has no military experience.
Are there any other moms out there with this problem?
