Very COOL...Seems like a busy life. How long has "new" hubby been in the Army? How long do you plan on being in Ft. Bragg??? Wow, college and boot camp!! good luck! thats what shawn did, finished A school then got married, well when he got his orders. Shawn is currently working on his 5 year plan, changes daily, lol...but knows the military will offer security, just "exploring" his options! LOL
Shawn loves it too...and his Chief thinks highly of him and Shawn thinks highly of the chief, so that makes life a bit nicer in the Navy. so YOU...how long has Hubby been in the Army. You must lead an interesting life or at least thats the impression that I get from military families..duty stations..meeting all kinds of people! So where are you originally from?♥
sorry i didn't put 2 +2 together..sorry...so how is CJ doing? liking his rate? Shawn is really liking his job, so far. Shawn will also test for 3rd class in the next month or so! Unbelievable, I/ we get so busy in life and also age catchs up and I just plain forget, sorry about that!!! I guess when I received your email at the adoptasailor email...I just didn't recongize the "full name" and you didn't say a thing, so I just "assumed" you got the info about MAS from FB or the website....I do know better then to ASSUME....♥LOL
OMG..is this YOU DONNA>..I was chatting with Kimberly last nite, son on Makin Island and asked "if" she knew you...and also asked if you are a member on here...so I went searching...and OMG...I know who you are>>>I am LMAO..OMG..6degrees of separation!!!! ♥....
Shawn was home the next day! but in order for that to happen the sailor must have hard orders.....orders in hand
this is GREAT news sooooooooooo happy for you...enjoy the homecoming REALLY
Now...my son is deployed at the moment and will back on dry land sometime in the spring...its harder then I thought....
its all a learning experience, that makes us stronger.. I will be there when the next navy mom fall to mush from deployment
they get their orders while in A school...towards the end...my son got his about 2-3 weeks before he was done..But some from what I have read..get them on the day they finish A school...so tell him to be prepared.
How does your sailor know where he will be stationed?
Oh and as for Shawn....He *absoultely LOVES* his job...he says
mom it is the *coolest* job he loves his shipmates and has already made some *real* life long buddies...
EN don't only work on the engines, there are alot of areas of the ship that they maintain, which keeps the job interesting.
I still can't believe I met someone that has a sailor that is an EN.
I have been on this website since late Feb..08 and you are the first one...how cool....let me know if there are any questions that your sailor wants answered...Shawn loves giving info.
HEy got your name from Molly, heard you have a sailor in A school and EN...OH how great...
My son Shawn is currently in Everret Washington...USS Rodney M. Davis...and is an EN...ask away....this is so cool to find another Snipe as well as an EN..cool
I think they are just very focused on finishing boot camp now. I'm doing okay but getting antsy to see him. It hard to stay focused for some reason! That's a great idea to have friends write encouraging words to them, you are very thoughtful. A lot of my friends here at the office wrote notes in cards I sent to him. I think just knowing we are behind them in this is helping them. I saw a comment on another groups' link that the kids were told no more phone calls until after Battlestations. That makes sense! We want them to do well. When will you get to see Josh when he is in CT?
