Well he has two days in, I'm sure he is doing better than I am. That first call was rough. I am looking forward to following along with others going through the same thing here.
The first call is scripted. He will say that he is there and ok. He will say you will receive a box in one week with his things. he will say you will get a letter in three weeks. I love you goodbye. You cannot respond.
I squeezed in an "I love you" before he hung up, but that's it.
The box came today :(
Thanks for answering to my question. I'm saying a prayer for you today.
My box came this morning too...
It's a strange feeling isn't it. Prayers for you too!
We are from PA. Where are you from? This is our first experience with anything Military. I think I will feel better when boot camp is over, it is so hard not hearing from him. How are you holding up?
Thank you for the encouraging words. I am so excited for my son to have taken the initiative to join the navy. I do believe this will be so good for his self esteem and self worth. Proud that he now has direction and can't wait to watch as his future unfolds.
Received the form letter!
