Anyone on board this ship?
yeah! They took pictures for their I.D cards and they went to classifications and found out FOR SURE what their job is going to be :)
My husband is Div:285. I got a lettter today and is aid that Him and his new buddies always talk about navy4moms and how its cool that we are all on the website together!
Have a son on 12/285 he loves it. But misses his double stuffed oreos, and music ( I have a quiet car now ). Didnt get a letter last week but found out that he wrote to his Grandmother, Uncle, Best Friend and his 6yr old cousin (who was just super excited that he got a Navy letter inthe mail) so I will let last week go since he wrote everyone else
I have 4 kids 2 have graduated from college both in education and my youngest is 16. it was quiet after my son went to BC with 1 home but then the 2 older ones came back. So even with 1 gone I tend to have a house full of noise. My SR was so excited about leaving that he made it so easy for us to say goodbye -the only one that was caught of guard was his older sister (she needed a pity cake after we dropped him off at the hotel) . I am hoping that we get a letter this week. I told my Mother -in-law that his letters are so different then church camp where they only said 'Having Fun Send Money : ) . Cant wait for Sept 7th !!!
I am the same way. I have 4 kids with (1) in BC, (1) leaves for college next week and (2) that will still be here with me but it will be oh quite different because they are 15 and 16 year old boys who are active in school so it will be very quiet and my husband drives trucks so most of the time when he make it home I'm sleep...I love the letters that I recieve each week but I really miss my son..
my son comes home tomorrow. happy and sad. He told me that he really enjoyed his division and that they are a great group to be a part of. He was ship 12 div 286. I wish all the SR's in that division the best of luck!!! Maybe he will go back in and love it. We shall see. Prayers to the recruits and their families.
Yes my son is...SHIP 12---DIV 285
my son is ship 12 DIV 285 also wish I had another Mom close would love to have lunch or something with someone else who is going through this.
I'm not sure if anyone posted about this, but I just got a letter from my son. He is on Ship Staff (He is the head of the mail for our division)
I guess they were on quarantined because somone in their brother division had chicken pox!
He says that they are in Hell Week , marching five hours a day along with all of their inspections. They went to check out the Marlin Spike, where he found out that he will be a "line captian" during Battlestations 21! Does anyone know more about this?
It is funny how the letters are so positive now, versus the ones I recieved at the beginning!
I am a proud Mom :)
