Hi I am a mom to 4 and this is my first experiece with a child chossing to join the Navy. Linde is my 2nd child and she is amazing. She is the first to leave the home nest. I am a registered nurse in Orange for the last 25 yrs. I am looking forward to meeting all of Lindes new navy family and hearing about her adventures.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
only 2% serve in the military and i thought that was interesting and proud my daughter is part of a very small percentage and even smaller % being a woman and choosing to serve.

Hi Barbara...just wanted to stop in and say Hi and see how you are holding up. Have you received the form letter with your daughter's PIR date yet? You will find a lot of commardarie in that group when you do learn of her date. Have a great day & a very Merry Christmas.
Hi Barbara...So glad you found me. Becky said we have a lot in common with both being nurses and this crazy Navy life we have been thrown into! I can only imagine that your emotions are all over the place with your daughter just leaving for boot camp. I hope you were okay when you got "the box." Even though our journey started with our son leaving for Boot camp in May, I still get emotional thinking of every step we have been thru. He is home with us right now for 10 days during the holidays and it is wonderful! Last week was crazy, but this week should be a bit better. I'll try to call this week and see how you are doing! Thanks, Kim
