I found you on the "Moms of GMs" page. My son's PIR was also on 12-5-14 and was on hold until the beginning of March I think and was also on the Essex. He has 5 weeks to go for A school and I don't remember what the name of the ship is he is on now. I wonder if they know each other? I am counting down the days and hoping he gets to come home before he reports to his next station. We are very excited for him and to see where he is going next on his life's adventure and journey!!
Hi there FIBroomie! I'm soooo sorry I did not see this post until now. Wasn't that a great ceremony today!!! Were you at the Meet-n-Greet? We were with a couple other 904 families. We were located at the table between the gift baskets and the donation box on the food table. We plan on being a the airport tonight so if you're there, look for some Seahawk shirts and sweatshirts...and that's me! My son is Noah (SR SAGAWINIT) fills in for the AROC and does cadence for the division when they march...so maybe your SR knows my son. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR SON...AWESOME STUFF!!!
