When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
you have to be patient :)!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
you guys look so cute together. ahhhhh. don't feel to bad that you won't be at PIR. At lot of people can't go. Save your money for when he comes for a leave or when you can visit him for a longer period of time. Make sure HE orders the DVD of PIR (be sure he gets one for his mom or you'll end up without one). LOL. And of course, you have to start saving for the wedding. That can be a real ouch on your pocket book. Ask some of the ladies (moms in your PIR group) to take extra pictures for you.
Look for the next East Bay Meet and Greet - there are many members in the East Bay and also, please do me a favor and come into the San Fran group and post a comment about your sailor periodically. I hate to be the only one posting stuff. Makes it look like I am a hog.
