hi! i am waiting to see if the airplane ticket prices go down! its soo expensive! i might change the hotel to the navy lodge! i was trying to ask in the chat room what the best way to travel from the airport to the hotel in great lakes. do you have any idea?
My first born/ only daughter in this group and this has been the hardest thing I have had to do in my life.(other than give birth) LOL..I received her box and small note as well it basically said the same as yours. I have written a few letters and mailed her 3 phone cards one for herself and 2 just in case she met a friend or two that didn't have one along with s book of stamps...everyone has someone they want to write and if not i'm willing to pen pal a few sailors...I'm in Texas..
My son (25) is SHIP 02/DIV 918 too. I just booked our flight with Southwest and got good deal. We are coming from Massachusetts. Got his box and short note on the back of the form letter as well. I mailed him some preprinted labels with our address and his girlfriend's and sent a couple of books of stamps. Still not received a real letter yet. I think we will rent a car. We are planning to stay till Monday since we don't know when he will leave for his A school. Still browsing the different hotels in the brochure they sent. Will let you know if I get a letter.
My daughter left on the 17th and I just received a letter from her this past Friday. I was a pretty short letter but she stated they only had a few minutes to write and they will be calling home soon but she didn't know when.
They did battle station yesterday and I got a call today so keep your phone close.
