Hi Everyone, My daughter finished up in the Navy December 14.  She and her husband came home to live with me until they find a place of their own in the area.  In March we will have our first grandchild.  Life is good.

My youngest son and I drove to Beaufort to spend Christmas with my sailor. He had to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and he's on night shift so much of my time was spent watching him sleep. But guess what? I enjoyed every minute of it. We still had time to spend together. He bought me a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas. I fussed at him for spending so much but I really love it! Next Christmas he will be in Greece, but the Christmas after that, he will be home for good!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!

Yes, can not believe it has been 2 years, his date is December 7th for entering bootcamp. My son has gone through 1 deployment. He returned after 8 monthes at sea and was apart of Operation Enduring Freedom. The deployment was extended and that was heartbreaking. But we has loved ones know the ups and downs of having a loved one serving. I know that it is hard and could not have made it through with out wonderful friends and family. We were not able to skype. The only form of communication was email, letters and phone calls. Not seeing my son was the hardest. I cherished every phone call and every email or letter. God blessed us with his safe return. I wish you all the best in the comming year ahead. Take care;

myboysmom - Today is the two year anniversary for my son too. I got a little teary-eyed today just thinking about it. He has been an MA at the Naval Hospital in Beaufort, SC. I'm going to spend Christmas with him this year. It's his third year away from home on Christmas, and mostly like he won't be home next year either so I'm heading south.

kathyf - Yes, I'm pretty happy with Greece. The world is such a mess and you really never know where the next hot spot will be, but I prayed and left it in God's hands and asked Him to put my son where He thought best so I have a real peace about his orders. I have been spoiled a bit with him being about 10 hours away, and being able to visit back and forth 3-4 times a year, but this is the Navy and we both knew when he signed up there would be periods of long separations. But we made it through boot camp, A school and many other trials and tribulations....we can make it through this as well. Many of you ladies have already had to deal with the separation, so let me know how you managed!

Comment by myboysmom(Ship09/Div078) on December 14, 2012 at 9:34pm

Well today is the day....2 years ago was the saddest day of my life. I sent my boy off to Chicago to become property of the US Navy! I sent them a boy and they returned him home to me a man! I am so very proud of the man he has become. He has spent the last 22 months in D.C. in the Ceremonial Honor Guard. He is on the firing party and participates in funerals at Arlington National Cemetary, arrivals of dignitaries at the White House, ceremonies at the Pentagon and the Capitol. He has had some exciting things happen to him while in D.C. on of which was being able to participate in the burial at sea for the Great Neil Armstrong!!! He was so honored to be asked to participate in this. If anyone would like to see any of the pics you can go to and look up Neil Armstrong burial at sea. It was pretty awesome! Also, the most important is he met the love of his life while in D.C. We are so happy for him and she is a wonderful lady. We are so proud of him. He will be in D.C. until February then he will FINALLY get to go to A-school for Corpsman in San Antonio, TX. But he has enjoyed his time in the Navy so far. It hasn't been all roses but the good has definitely out weighed the bad. I hope everyone is doing well and good luck to you and yours sailors in their future endeavors. May everyone have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! While we are celebrating a happy day those in Newtown have suffered a great loss. Lets keep them all in our thoughts and prayers!

Hello ladies. Dec 16th will mark my two years since my son joined. He just got his orders for the USS Truman out of Norfolk. He is still in Prototype School up in New York. He will not be home for Christmas this year again. But we are hanging in there with the carepackages.

Hope everyone's Holidays are blessed.

Hello Navy Moms! My son just got his orders for overseas. He's headed for Souda Bay, Greece. I think I'll get an extra job so save some money and go visit him.
Well, this Friday is the two year mark for my son. In some ways it seems like yesterday, and other times, it seems like forever ago. Just thinking about it brings back all the emotions. But I'm so thankful for how far God has brought us all!

Comment by ProudMichiganMom on November 20, 2012 at 8:26pm

Thank you, MountainMama. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I can't believe we are getting ready to mark our 2 year anniversary of our sailors' ship dates. While our sailors have all moved on to different assignments, I will always continue to follow our Navy Moms group. My sailor will not be home for Thanksgiving, but he is very happy in his current assignment, which makes me happy, proud and thankful. God bless all of the Navy Mom's and Dad's and their sailors. I will be thinking about all of you on Thanksgiving Day.

Comment by MountainMama(ship3 div081) on November 20, 2012 at 8:09pm

I would like to wish all my Navy BFF's a Happy Thanksgiving! Still miss our daily conversations and will always feel close to you all because of all the stress, worry, joy, and prayers that we shared together. I'm pretty sure I woud have gone completely out of my mind without you ladies. Love you all!! God bless!

I still wear mine, it makes me think of graduation and you wonderful ladies and all the ups and downs we went through.  My daughter is stationed in VA and hopefully will be coming home for Christmas on the 2 year anniversary of the day she left for boot camp.
