Lorraine, sounds like Ryan is doing well!

FORTY YEARS??!!! It must be a bitter-sweet year for you. I'm in year 25, with no retirement in sight. Officially went back today, but have been at school 8 of the last 9 days, putting in almost 60 hours. Moved my classroom, cleaning/purging, even had to paint my own room (our district did away with the painting dept in June...)  Looking forward to the new challenges of the year, and there are quite a few.

Hope your final year is memorable! (A mentor of mine, when I first started teaching, used to say that in her final year, she wanted the class from H3LL! Said then she would never look back and regret it! - she got her wish!) 

Comment by Lorraine on August 10, 2011 at 9:30am

Hi girls,

It was so great to hear from all of you. It sounds like all your sailors are doing a great job. I hope you all are having a great summer. I have had a wonderful summer off from school so far. I'm spending the summer at our home in Bonita Springs, Fla. Family and friends have been visiting.

I'll be heading home at the end of August to begin my last year of teaching.I'm retiring after 40 years. I have mixed feelings about leaving.


Ryan is still in the Great Lakes for A school.  His wife Sue, joined him in late March. They have a wonderful  townhome off base, but still military housing.

He is still in  A school for FC. It's a very long  school. A school should be completed some time in early November, C school for an FC is either in one of two places, Virginia Beach or San Diego, Ca. We are all hoping for San Diego.


We will be visitingRyan and Sue in the GL the first week in Nov, for four days. He also mentioned that he might have leave over Chistmas. My husband and I will be in Fla. for xmas and if Ryan has off Sue and Ryan will join us,


Ryan is doing very well in school. He had a little health setback for a week and had to join another class. My husband talked to him last night and he seems very happy.  I'm trying to send a picture of Sue and Ryan but I'm having a hard time getting it to send.


I'm very proud of all our sailors.

Wasn't that just sickening about the Navy Seals being shot down. My heart goes out to all those families. It makes it hit home that our boys might be in danger some day. I sure hope not. Glad everyones boys and girls are doing so great, just wish I'd have got to see mine before C school

It was great to have my Sailor home Caryn, You will cherish the time! They change so much, but still stay the same...

Where is he? Took a few weeks for Anthony to get his C school/Duty Base orders after A  school graduation. He told us not to come to grad. Said it wasn't a big deal, but then I think we both regretted not doing it. He actually left Pensacola without us seeing the base. Kind of makes me sad that he lived somewhere for 4 months, and I was never there!  Guess I better get used to that!

Comment by Tchrmom Lisa on August 4, 2011 at 12:00am

Hey Dale! 

Sounds like Brian is doing really well! That's great!

Anthony finished A School in Pensacola in June, and waited for his orders. He got them mid July and took just under 2 weeks leave to come home. It was GREAT to see him and have him home. He left last Friday and reported to Oceana Virginia for C school. VA will be his duty base. He has been assigned to VFA-211 squadron (Fighting Checkmates) and will be working on the F-18. It's amazing that MY education about the Navy did NOT end with Boot camp. 

I was away from N4Ms for a few months. Back now. Keep in touch!

Comment by Dale on August 3, 2011 at 10:17pm
Hi everyone - hope your sailors are all doing fine. Brian just finished his first school with a 96% and is going and starts his next 6 months on Monday, will be in Pensacola till he finishes. Hasn't had enough time to come home, so were going to take a trip out in Oct or Nov. Haven't seen him since graduation. Hope your all well too. Keep in touch

Hi there ladies! Anyone out there?
Comment by Dale on March 14, 2011 at 8:53pm
My sailor got to start his A School today, was excited. Said he doesn't have to muster now? Hopefully he likes his school. Hope your all doing good - our snow is finally starting to melt - can't wait for spring
Comment by Tchrmom Lisa on March 14, 2011 at 2:35pm

So sorry to hear of your loss Emptnestnow. I will keep your family in my prayers.

Hope this is finding the rest of the group doing well. I haven't heard much from Anthony. Was getting pretty depressed about it. I felt like I knew more about what was going on when he was in boot camp. Figured out last night that he is very home sick. He cleans barracks from morn to mid afternoon. That's it. He is waiting to class up to ATT. Hoping he phases to III & can put it a chit to come home for a quick weekend before that. I'm afraid he'll be crushed if he can't. We are in the same state, a little over 600 miles apart. So close, yet so far!!!

Thank you.  It is a comfort to have Will home at this time.  I can't believe how fast the Navy got Will home to us!  Remember to contact the Red Cross if you need to get in touch with your Sailor in an emergent situation.  I was able to put his phone into his hand, too, because I sent it twice to the "packages" address which is not for packages, but for Not the USPS deliveries...
