Hi and Welcome.
We are happy to have you on the Navy for Moms site. You are invited to join either the Illinois or Missouri family page as listed below. It is a great way to find families in your area and even help plan meet and greets. We also have some packing parties for our troops overseas getting together. (PS Sorry I have been away from the site for a couple of weeks—been super busy with fund raisers and with work.) http://www.navyformoms.com/group/illinoisn4m http://www.navyformoms.com/group/missourinavymoms
Be sure and let me know if you have any questions!
Heather - did you get your letter yet? I think it's all different as we got our box yesterday and the letter today. Got everything in 7 days. Mailings probably happen in waves. It's interesting to read their comments at end of letter. Stuff like "it sucks" and " I hate it here" is probably pretty common. Plan on writing and encouraging, that's what we do best.
You will find this site very helpful and full of members who are eager to answer your questions. Browse around the site and check out the forums, groups, blogs, photos, videos, and even the other member profiles!
