I had from my son too. Not a phone call but a FB message. Now I have an address and an email address he said he can check more often. Didn't say a whole lot but so glad I heard from him. Sounds like he got some liberty last week and had fun. What exactly is the Tiger cruise? Don't think I will be able to meet the ship but planning a trip out there in August. Glad u heard from your son and hope others heard something too!
Woo Hoo! Finally got a phone call Monday night!
What a relief to hear his voice...he is doing great, working hard and looking forward to coming home.
It sounds like Dad has passed the first hurdle and may be able to go on the Tiger Cruise - he is thrilled at the prospect.
We are hoping to meet the ship when they return - just waiting for dates so we can make plans.
Can't wait to wrap my arms around that boy!
Thanks Dsmom. It's nice to know there is someone we can contact for information on our sailors. Mine son just graduated boot camp in January and joined the Stennis in February. It has been hard because I have only heard from him once and that was a very brief FB message. I have been keeping an eye on his debit card activity so I have an idea where they are right now. And I love the FB page!
I haven't visited N4M in a long time, but it was my lifeline while our son was at boot camp.
He graduated Oct 2011, went through A-school and has been assigned to the Stennis since last March. This is our first deployment and it sure has been long!
I see many of you discussing communications and all I can tell you is that there is no "normal". I've had packages get there in less than a week, and I've had some that have taken over a month. Sometimes I get an e-mail every day - and now I haven't heard from him in over 3 weeks! It sure is hard, but hang in there. They'll be home soon!
Joining the Facebook pages is an excellent way to keep up to date. I would also encourage all of you to contact the Ombudsmen. They provide information to spouses and children of our sailors, but also help keep us Moms up to date. Follow this link to get information on contacting them:
Sure hope we all hear from our Sailors this week!
It's been awfully quiet out here. How is everyone doing? Have you heard from your sailors lately? Nothing more from mine since the FB message a couple weeks ago.
Yay for you, Navymomkathy! I know what you mean. Just having confirmation that they are alive and well is comforting.
Thanks, Dyon. Wow, 5-6 weeks lead time? Good to know. I guess I'll never be sending homemade cookies. They would be moldy on arrival. lol
YEAH!!!!!!! I know you are esctatic!!!!! So glad you have heard your sailor. I keep scouring the FB pages for photos of my son, too. But, that IS the downside of having a child working in Intell ~ they PURPOSEFULLY dodge the cameras!! LOL
I heard from him!!! It was a very short FB message just saying he was on the ship & sorry he has not been able to call. I don't care that it was so short. Just glad I heard from him and know that he is OK. I really enjoyed reading the FB page today about what has been happening aboard the Stennis. It was ALMOST as good as a letter from my sailor.
DavesMom: Glad that you rec'd the updated address and got a tidbit of news from your sailor!!!!! YES - the snail mail is SLOW....and the care packages should be sent with about a 5 - 6 week lead time.
Nancymomkathy: I hope you hear from your sailor SOON!! I do know our sailors are busy.
