Hi Tracye! You likely are a member of Massachusetts Navy Moms, I just thought you lived in MA! Stupid me ... I should have looked at your home page in the beginning. I was hoping to get you involved in a packing party in Plainville, MA. Good intentions, but likely impossible to pull off. You probably are very involved with the TX Moms and their packing parties. Still, it is nice to meet you. Have a great day!
Hey Tracye! Welcome to SEVERAL groups that I am a member of also (and started or am an administrator of some of them.) Texas' Moms, MA moms, Molly's Adopt a Sailor!! Molly and I are GREAT friends! I even went to her second sons PIR last October!
Well, just tell me where in Texas Troup is and we'll do a "packing party". We are planning a pie making day and a shopping day in the Houston area in November and first part of December. I live near Beaumont if you know where that is.
Welcome! Your daughter is in A school now? You lucky thing to have her so close! My son went to MA A school in Virginia. He is about to deploy for the third time in a few weeks. My fourth Christmas without him!
Hi my daughter Nikki is in the same ship Division. I just received my first letter friday it took 8 days to come here(Florida) I have been sending her 2 letters a week. She said its tough and the girls dont like listening so they do more PT than training. Have you had the same feedback? I havent received anything else other than the letter from her...
Hi, since your daughter will be going to A School in San Antonio, so may want to join San Antonio MA's. I hope you find the "Break down week by week" helpful. The group is very helpful. Best wishes to your daughter as she emabarks on her Navy Career and to you as you are along for the journey. Blessings to you and yours.
Thanks, Tracye. I always thought my next child (son) would be the one to join the military since he is very much into army JROTC in school; it really suprised me when she announced she was joining. I'm so glad I found this group; I have learned a lot already tonight about PIR, etc.
