Last weekend I saw my son become a man. He was standing with his back straight, with such pride wearing his uniform. I am so proud to see my son soooo happy. The graduation ceremony was beautiful. My son left our home a boy and when we left him, we left a young man. I am not worried anymore, or sad. He has made the best decision in his life. We love you and support all his decisions. Thank god for all your blessings. Watch over all our children, spouses and parents.

It's May 27th!!! Did you ever think you'd make it to this day? My Sailors PIR was last week (21st) and it was one of the best times of my life. I hope you are with your Sailor now and having a glorious time.
You are not alone. Having a son (or daughter) in boot camp is a lonely experience. Your son is a handsome young man and kudos to you for raising him to be a fine sailor!
