"My daughter is getting ready to graduate. She’s already received her orders to be stationed in San Diego. She received more than enough money to pay for an apartment plus the food allowance.. She has saved so much money in the 20 months…"
You'll be able to spend time with Madison from after PIR on Friday, around 10:30 until around 21:00/ 8:00pm then she has to be back on Base in enough time to walk to her Ship. Then she'll leave about 0100-0300/1:00am-3:00am in the morning to go to the airport...At least, that was my Sailors schedule. Good News you can meet her there a spent some time until her plane leaves.
