Hi, I am North of Houston in the Magnolia, Woodlands area. My son has been on the Wasp since November 2011. Prior to that he was in CT in submarine school, but got dropped in his 4th school for falling asleep. He tested in Sept 2012 for OS (Operations Specialist) and passed, so he has been doing a new job on the Wasp since December. My stepdaughter that I have raised from the age 5, is shipping out to boot camp (Navy) at the end of May as a gunners mate. Hope to talk soon. I am on facebook as Jackie Hanson Carter, if you would like to find me there.
I have no idea how she is, all I've gotten so far is her box which a horrid experience. And I've gotten her letter information letter! So I am going with the old adage of "no news is good news"! My daughter Mandy graduated HS a year early she's only 17 and I hope she was as strong as she thinks she is. I am hoping for a letter from her this week maybe!
