This message is for all females coming to see someone graduating from Ship 07 Division 104:
I have been asked to share a request that you wear a Yellow Ribbon in your hair during the graduation ceremony. I don't know why but my son asked me to post this and spread the word to all Moms, wives, girlfriends and any other females that will be attending the graduation (PIR) ceremony on March 30, 2012, so I thought I would post it here and I will also post it on Facebook.
Is this just for 7/104?
I only know about it being for a request for my son's division so far, sorry. If I hear about it being for other divisions, I'll let you know. I know of another mom that for that division getting the same request, with no explanation as well. We might get an explanantion when we get the call after Battlestations is completed. I do know when I will be getting that call as well, so I will see if I can get more info then. If so, I will post an update at that time. Unfortunately, I will not post when battlestations is happening but ask your sailor, they should tell you.
Okay I thought so. How strange?
It is for 07/104 because they sang a cadence every time they marched about a yellow ribbon. It is special to them!
In her hair she wore a yellow ribbon
(they repeat) In her hair she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore it in the springtime in the early month of May
(they repeat) She wore in the the springtime in the early moth of May
And if you ask her why the hell she wore it (repeat)
She wore it for a Sailor who was always underway (repeat)
Around the park she pushed a baby carriage (repeat)
And if you asked her why the hell she pushed it (repeat)
She pushed it for a Sailor who was always underway.
So for our men it reminds them of the ladies in their lives waiting for them to come home. So please ladies wear a yellow ribbon and show our men how proud we are of them!!
Thanks Navywife for the update. That explains it. :) I appreciate the info!
