Hi Doreen. My son is on ship 07 and division 272. I just sent a letter to him today. I recieved his form letter with his little note on it. I miss him so much. I am going to redecorate his bedroom so when he gets his first leave he will be surprised. Navy for moms is excellent for having a idea how things are going.
