I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Needed to learn more about it
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Tina, thanks for asking me to be your friend. I'm Terry. Our young men are together. Zac sure is a good looking young man. He's the oldest of three and my SR is the youngest of two (24). Before he left made a joke that he was going to be the "old man" in his group. What job did Zac sign up for? I am wondering about the Divisions because I've read here that the 900's are for band, choir, musical stuff. My kid is NOT musical; other than loving to listen to it. Zac's fiancee is beautiful, have they set a date?
Hi...This is Matt's mom (carol) we were talking about what a small world it is and our son's left from Tampa a day difference... anyway, just wondering, would you let me know when you get the "box" or the letter ...and I will do the same because I figure we should get them around the same time. (I'm too anxious,I know) anyway,thanks and I appreciate it! Carol
