Hello everyone!My daughter decided to join navy. She is only seventeen and already making good decisions! The mom in me is scared for her. She has never been on a plane or gone far from me. So i i am…Continue
Hey Jackie...I didn't see your question til today...so I'm sure your CS is already at GL. My sailor hasn't told us anything informative except that she should know more tomorrow. This on hold thing is hard!
I texted my son and he said he would be happy to talk to her. I think if she talks to someone that can explain what to expect the next few weeks it will ease her mind. The thought of new things always makes most of us nervous and yearn for the times we knew we had some control or at least know what to expect. My son is James and he is in the class that will graduate 10/25. Also I will be there in two weeks. Coming from NY If your daughter needs anything just let me know If you wish just let me know who she is and the barracks. My son will try and talk to her. He has liberty this weekend but has duty Monday.
How are you soon? I think we won't know and neither will they until the receive their orders at pir that what I read depending on flights out etc. Maybe it will be delayed because of holiday weekend :)
Jackie that would be great to meet! My son will be a CRT! God know what that is he will be classified intercepting enemy transmissions recoding them for our intelligence. Its foreign to me! And apparently top secret! Ugh
I'm hoping the 30 th too. But never found out from recruiter. I thought we had to wait for letter? I guess the 30 or 6 th His day is the 5th. I will have to let you know when I get my letter. Hope the 30th are you going? We are driving
I think you click on the persons name say on the comment and the go to their page it should say friend request or invite. I think that's it some of this is confusing lol! So glad you got her box! Was it what you expected? I told my son to secretly leave a note in a pocket!
