I believe my son and your daughter have met. I was telling Nick about her and he told me their is a section leader that could be her. I see you are used to the military life as your "about me" states. I am new to this and trying to figure it all out. I am very happy with my sons choice but missing him very much. I am happy to have you as a friend. I hope all is well with you. Ellen
I know it will not be Friday or Saturday night. They do not do battlestations on those days. However they start at ten at night and get done about ten the next morning. That might be why she said Friday. Starts on thursday night and ends on Friday morning. Riley said they will get to talk for at least an hour when they pass battlestations. Can't wait. Hope to see you next week.
I see you joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!!! We are a friendly, caring group of moms always willing to listen and support. Please feel free to jump in and join our chats!! We like to discuss everything from our sailors to our jobs, weather, whatever. It's also a great place if you want to yell, scream, vent, cry - - there is no judgment involved!!! Brag about your sailor but also tell us when you are hurting because you miss her so!!! My husband and I are also both vets and served during Vietnam. And I have a son serving, one daughter in a "soon to be officer" program, and my other daughter just got out of the Navy and joins us as a veteran!! Looking forward to getting to know you and your sailor!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!
