HI MY NAME IS DAISHA ,iam 21 iam a mother of 1 wonderful son my sailor join the navy i was so proud of him, hes a bm on mcclusky he been on there for three years we been married since *03/07/08* I am thankful for finding the Navy4moms website...Because It changes a lot. You know, it's amazing it took me three years to find this group. I don't know where in the world I was looking before. I am excited to be here and make new friends and share infor wit.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
THAT YOU HAVE TO BE VERY STRONG FOR YOUR SAILOR AND BE HIS ROCK AND TO MAKE SURE TO SPEND EVERY MOMENT WIT HIS AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST!!!!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
It all usually works out in the end. So I'm not too worried.....? I'm just concerned about my three children. If it was just us I wouldn't care where we stayed really. I wouldn't have to be concerned about schools, neighborhood, and etc. I have to make sure that the neighborhood will be good place for my children to be, not to mention, safe and secure:)
Thanks! I'm not moving on base either. I have just been looking online to get a feel of what is out there. It's kind of frustrating at times because everything is still just up in the air. No real definite answer on when, where, how, etc. etc.
I hear you!!! I'm going to be the same way! lol Good Luck! Have you looked at any properties to move to yet in SC? Are you moving on base? I know that there are usually a waiting list and if you don't get on the list early enough you might have to look for a place off base. The Navy 'family' are pretty close knit from what I hear and are always there to give a lending hand. We will be okay!
