Oh, and we are not military people in any way! But, still so proud of our boy and his accomplishments in the Navy. And, it is very cool to see everyone in their uniform, the flag, music, etc. at PIR. Not to mention looking for your child in the sea of uniforms!
I don't think they will call him any sooner. My son left on the date they had given him. But, others may have a different story! I believe the Navy has a waiting list, so unless he changes jobs, he will probably go in mid-November. It is hard on them while they are waiting to go!
Our son will be here for 10 days on leave in April--so looking forward to it! He will leave on his first long tour in May. We attended PIR (graduation) from our son's BC--it was great! It is so overwhelming and you are just so proud of your kid.
We have a dim sum meet and greet in Oakland on April 2 at the Legendary Palace from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
Please join our local group - and meet all the wonderful moms, wives, girlfriends, dads, aunties, uncles - all over the Bay Area - I have several directories compiled for you to find people in your immediate area. We just hosted a brunch for a sailor (on leave) and his family who live in Fremont. We have two casual lunch meet and greets in San Carlos and Burlingame. We have a BBQ in Walnut Creek in July.
