I am happily married to a former Navy man and now three of our four children are in the Navy as well. My oldest daughter was in the Navy and served 4 years she also married a Navy guy who served 4 years. They have two beautiful girls. I work part-time and try to keep busy so that I don't worry so much about my kids. I try to stay positive and I am proud that they have moved on to better things. I feel that the Navy is the best thing for my kids. They are so much stronger for making the decision they did. My husband has built a great career starting out in the Navy.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
At Boot Camp now
When I heard “Navy,” I...
was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
to be supportive and give lots of encouragement. It is a major life change and they need to know that we are there for them in all that they do.
Our Navy experience so far...
has been positive and maturing.
