Got form letter today. Very little personal from my son but still nice to see his handwriting. Unfortunately most to his wife.
My son called yesterday but he had called his wife. I think the only reason he got to call is to get her to send in information they needed for his security clearance. I think that she was glad to hear his voice but at the same time she said he was a little down because he has a cold and he is homesick. (lovesick) He said he didn't care he was going to get through the next 6 weeks no matter what! He hasn't gotten any of the letters that we have sent so hopefully he will get them this week.
Hi Jessica I got a letter from my daughter yesterday , She is with Ship 9 Div 189 have not a call yet but was very happy to get the letter .. She seems to be doing fine.
Btw My name is Eileen
My husband is also with Ship 9 Div 189. I have received 2 letters so far, but I have NOT received the form letter yet... hmmmm.... But he is not enjoying it at all. He said they are not to the "fun" part yet. He was talking to some guys that were about half way through while they were in the restroom (the head) and they said this next week things should change and get fun.He also said they haven't even hit 1-1 day yet and that was as of the 15th. I hope they will still be able to graduate June 3rd! I can't wait to hear from him again... I hope things will sound a little better. He is not one to complain so it sort of worries me when he does. He also said that he really likes his RDC but he is in charge of the females and the males have to go with DIV 190 because their RDCs are in charge of the males. The last thing he said was, "the food is good here, except for the beef taco casserole." Haha it make me laugh. He really misses home but will make it through just fine!
I too am REALLY hoping for a phone call tomorrow! I don't want to get my hopes up, but I just can't help it! I really want to tell him to make sure he orders pictures during week 4 so he doesn't miss out. He tends to not really think of the small things! I miss him so much and can't wait to be back with him again!
My husband is a nuke... what is your son?
I am glad to have received two, but I can't wait for them to start being happy letters... or at least happier than they have been. Its only 4:45 here... and still no call either... I hope we get to hear from them tonight! That sure would make my day! You would think I'd be use to this... My two little brothers are Army and my older brother is Air Force.... but my husband is completely different. I am 22 and being alone is no where near easy. I can't wait for June 3 either!! And yes I am planning on going. You? This is the toughest thing we have ever been through. We have been together for 3 years, married for just over 7 months. The Navy came to mind a year ago over casual conversation when I said I'd support him if the military was ever something he wanted to do... with a bit more talking, we decided to do it. (And I say we, because we are a team and it is a life that we BOTH have to live... know what I mean?) If you are going, where do you plan on staying? I've hear some good things about a few places, and a lot of people seems to like the Navy Lodge... still no reservations in any where though.
Happy Easter to you too! I hope you have a good one, even though your sailor is not with you!
