Hi ! I saw the comment you left on the group page. You said your daughter, is she in Ship 11 & Division 59 ? I saw you wrote they got all four flags is this true? My daughter is in Div. 59 and she tells me in her letters that her division works together well to get the job done. She also talks about her female friend she hangs with. I wonder if our daughters are the ones she speaks of? Will you be at the meet & greet? Can't wait to hear from you.
LauraJayy820, Welcome aboard N4Ms. There are many groups on here if you want to find someone close to you or close to where your BC will be. Thank you for your willingness to serve our country. Freedom isn't free and it is brave people like you who maintain our democracy and protect the poorest of the poor around the world. I hope you like the Navy. Ask lots of questions before you go into bc so you will be well informed. My sailor loves the Navy now but it has been a very tough almost 4 years of training for him. His training was delayed at one point through not fault of his own. His whole class had to sit back and study while another crew was retrained. He called yesterday and sounds very happy. He wanted to see the world and he is finally getting to do that. I am here if I can be of support but there are some very experienced N4Ms on here too. Blessings,
