Hey, so I'm just wondering how everyone's getting there, when/where they're coming in, where they're staying, all that jazz - I know it's getting close to time, but I haven't made any carved-in-stone…Continue

Hi, everyone, my son left 9/23 as part of a group leaving from San Diego. Well, I finally found out his ship and division last Friday after calling his recruiter. Still haven't received the letter…Continue
Double congratulations StarChild! How exciting. I haven't been on this site in forever but I think about all of you often and wonder where your sailors are now, what they're doing, etc. It wasn't all that long ago that we were all worrying about our babies striking out on their own and now they're all grown up and flourishing. My daughter is still in San Diego, but is up for deployment in February. It's been great having her on the West Coast, as I'm in the Seattle area. She's been going to college at night and will have her Associates degree in the Spring. She's stressing about completing it before deployment. I hope she doesn't overburden herself, but she's determined. My youngest daughter married a guy on the Nimitz in December (2012). They met last summer and he's been out to sea more than he's been here, but his deployment is winding down and then they'll get a place of their own and actually get to be married. I think he has 2 years left on his contract, but is considering reupping. It's funny how quickly things change! I hope you are all doing well and that your sailors are safe. Take care all and please let's stay in touch!!
Hello Everyone, I haven't been by to visit in a long time. Had some health issues and I had to get myself together. I remember PIR...it was cold as heck and I cried my eyes out afterwards. LOL! Wanted to let everyone know that my sailor is married and expecting a baby boy this summer. I am so excited! Well I will be back more often. Hope you all don't forget this group.
Good morning all. I'm wondering if anyone else is thinking back two years when we were all heading to Great Lakes for PIR? About this time our sailors were probably in battlestations and we were all on pins and needles hoping our kids were okay and that they would pass. I remember seeing my daughter after PIR, all grown up and in uniform. She left on 10/4/10 as a teenager and the next time I saw her she was a woman. Still makes me teary to think of it all. She's doing well and is an ET on Cornado. She's up for orders next year and will probably be deployed. She's been on shore duty so far, so it's to be expected. Labmom - Congratulations to your daughter for finishing her training. JM-ISmomx2 - congratulations to your son. Starchild - Love the poem. Too true! They just grow up so fast! I hope your son is doing well. Happy Thanksgiving all! I hope your sailors will be coming home for Christmas.
JM-IS- congrats to your sailor. I know you are very proud. So am I!!
Labmom-sorry to hear about your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. It is very tough I know.
My sailor was home from Norfolk last week since I was in the hospital. I couldn't relax until I saw his face walk through the door. I am so blessed to have my sons and they were very worried. I lost my mom 17 yrs ago and my dad last Sept and we are still grieving his loss. I could see the worry in my sons' faces and it gave me such pain. Have to take better care of myself so I can be in their lives a long time.
Well hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Talk to you later.
Very proud of our son who received his EXW today as well as being presented with his first NAM. We look forward to him coming some soon.
StarChild - Happy Belated Birthday to your son. I hope you were able to connect with him on his birthday. I'm sure he never doubts how much you love him and that he misses you as much as you miss him. I know it's hard for the sailors, too, to be away from home on holidays. You just never outgrow your mom!
Today is my sailor's birthday and I can't tell him how much I love and miss him. Feeling something-sadness, pride-don't know what. Well I text him and sent a message on FB. Hope he sees it before the day is over:(
Also one of our own, Robyn Torres a Navy Mom, passed away Thursday afternoon from brain and lung cancer. Her sailor has been in for 2 years. He was by her side.
Happy 4th to my sisters!!
AndreaS61-sounds like you have a nice visit with your sailor. She is trying to do too much but she will have to figure that out for herself. Then again, she may be trying to get college out of the way so the Navy will take care of tuition. She knows what she is doing.
Yes it is hard not having my parents with me but I feel their spirit when I am down and need some comfort.
