I currently work for the Department of Corrections in Kansas and am planning on relocating to California by next year. Both of my daughters are married to Chief Petti Officers, and my son has recently joined the Navy and is stationed in Guam.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
It takes a special person to be a Sailor; those who have joined the Navy love their country and sacrifice everything for it every day; with fewer acknowledgements than other branches of the Military. Many people think that because they are not on the front line like those who serve in the Army for example that they don’t sacrifice as much; they believe the Navy is a cushy branch of the Military, but it’s not. Most people don’t understand our sailors and their families are in a constant period of transition. Often times the wives don’t even know where their husbands are and have no contact with them and are left to make all decisions for the family especially those who are on submarines as my sons are. When I think of the Navy and their family I think of true heroes who sacrifice all the time; throughout their entire career.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
