Just wanted to say Hi and that I saw you were from Lafayette! Its hard to find people in IN that have a Navy connection. So your husband is at OCS? I know what that's like...it can be a bit shocking if this is your first time experiencing the military life. I saw your comment about moving to VA, what is he going to be? SWO, Nuke, Supply, etc. I know its hard but the best thing to do is wait until after OCS to even think about moving. There are SOOO many factors that play into where he'll be stationed and the timing of those factors too. Well, i gotta get going but if you are on Facebook you can find me (AMANDA MARIE SMITH - location is Broad Ripple, IN) on there too if you want to chat about anything, no question is dumb... especially with a military life! haha. Hope all is well, stay strong! :)
Don't forget to check your status box. See upper right hand corner. That is where you see if you have any messages from friends. Friend requests (I just sent you one) and you can go to Settings to change user name, email notifications and your page appearance. My son went through OCS in late '06 and '07 - seems like decades ago.
Hello. My son is a nuke officer on a sub. I see you have joined the True To Our Vows group - there are a number of really nice young women in that group. I have met a number of them because we live in CA and we had a retreat for young wives, fiancees and gfs.
