You said it, firemansmom(S7/DIV357) ,
I have been feeling nostalgic all week. Nov. 2 was my daughter's birthday...the second birthday we have missed since she has been in the Navy. At least this year she is not in Boot Camp!
I too have missed all the ladies (and gents) from our group...I hope you all and your sailors are doing well.
Hello fellow 11/5 alumn. Hard to believe it has been a yr since most of of started this journey. My son left on 9/14 for bootcamp. then on to Groton after graduation for sub school. Since his sub is based in Groton he is still there. He loves it there. He got married in Apr and his new bride moved to Groton in July. He is now out on his boat. We get emails and when in port phone calls. Just talked to him yesterday, he called to tell us he got his first tatoo. All of his buddies tell him: "you are one of us now". lol Should be back in Groton sometime before the holidays. Dont know yet if they will get to come home at Christmas but we are hoping. Glad to read updates on your sailors. keep up with some of you on FB..
Hi Everyone. I felt the need to stop by here today to see how things are going. sounds like those who have posted have had an exciting ride over the last year. I can't believe we are approaching a year. My son left for bootcamp last Sept. 13, Div. 363. He is still in Charleston, SC attending Nuke school and will finish his second of 3 schools on Oct. 7. Talk about stress, ups and downs, highs and lows. Those guys and gals there are just so sick of 40-70 hours a week of classroom and studying and test after test after test. They just want to get out on the ships and subs and get going. After this school, he could be on grad. hold for 8 months or more before his last school will start, so still quite a while to go. In the meantime, he fell down some stairs on base back in March and FINALLY, after months of physical therapy, they are realizing that he most likely severed a tendon or three. He had an MRI and will go see an orthopedic doctor soon. could also mean ankle surgery. UGH. But, grad hold will be a good time to do this since it will be so long. And of course now we are watching the hurricane and waiting to see what path it will take and if they have to evacuate. Their base is in a swamp land area (but it is a nice area), not too close to the ocean to be worried about ocean swells, but they have lots of trees with shallow root systems so there could be lots of flying debris, and maybe a flying alligator or two.
Hope everyone is well and that your sailors are happy and healthy and enjoying their experiences.
Seems like forever since we were all on here worrying about battle stations and graduation! It was nice to see Lynn's pink flower on this page...good memories.
Update on Brittany:
She went to A and C school in Dam Neck, VA. She graduated C school on April 29th and was able to come home and visit us for almost 2 weeks before heading off to Hawaii for sea duty. So far, she is loving her new assignment, but is really looking forward to getting her car so she can explore the Island.
Hope all of you and your sailors are doing well.
