DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Hello, thought I would come on and do an update so to speak since this group is now an year old. Hard to believe last year this time we were getting ready for PIR and now our Sailors are scatterd to the 4 winds, serving in different places and doing various jobs.

My Sailor is doing well, he loves his job and is still lovin' the Navy. He will be a Career man I am told. We have only seen him 3 times since PIR, and each time it is harder when he leaves, oh well, I guess this weill be our way of life from here on out. Our last visit probably cost him his Christmas leave....but he came home for my brothers funeral. David and I have had a BAD year and are both looking forward to 2010! David is healing as well as expected from his motorcycle accident. His life is forever changed. His birthday is Monday, I asked him what he would like to have, his comment took me to my knees, he said, Shelia I dont want anything, I am just greatful to be alive and still be here with you. Goodness I love that man!

Mom struggles daily with my brothers death, the pain I feel, is crippling at times, yet I cannot imagine what she feels. His kids are doing well, however it has been a huge adjustment for them as Todd had full custody.

I am sorry to hear that Sunny's Mitch has had a struggle, keeping him and her in my thoughts and sending hopes of better days ahead for them.

I miss our hold PIR group so very much, I know there were issues, but as far as I am concerned you are all still a very important part of my Navy family. I choose to remember the good times we had on here, and forget the rest, my life has been eye opening so to speak in this last year, time is short here, so I cling to the good memories and happy times, as we never know what the future holds for us.

I wish each person who views this, health, happiness, love, a season of peace and time with the ones they love.

PIR 11/26/2008 was the best!

Sunny he called last night, he got the FOOD! I said I guess you are calling to give me your grocery order for next week???? He just laughed.

Sunny, yes at least you know he is safe!! David is still a kid a heart, I guess I am as well!

As for me, I have been busy mailing FOOD to the Sailor. He choose the NO MEAL Option!?!?!?! Guess he will have more money, and I will have less! Bet he wont do that again! I mean what kind of GOOD food really can you mail????

Have a good day
