hello beachbum, i think our boys talk about us talking, makes me feel good that they are doing ok, they are learning a lot, having a few bumps here and there. :) only a few more weeks and we get to see them.
Hi beachbum. You and I are almost neighbors. I live one mile north of Falcon. My son is at Goose Creek. He was at bc from 110711 to 010612. He has been at gc since that time. I see you have a lot of experience with the military. This is all new to me. My Sailor is also my only son. It is nice to know another Navy Mom is in the area.
Hello beachbum by the way love your username!!!!! Yes i received the form letter this morning. What a great feeling. I'll tell you the emotions are like a rollercoaster. Never had so many different emotions happening since he left.It's so crazy. This sight has helped tremendously. Looking forward to the first letter he sends home. Thanks for being there .We will make it through Keep in touch.
