Hi credtia:)sailor'smom, You sound like a very busy and happy Navy Mom. I used to work full-time but had to quit due to my health so I am not as busy as I used to be. My son's been a sailor 4 years in February. He finally got orders for his first deployment and was thrilled that he was finally going to see the world. He tried to put himself through college on the scholarships he earned in high school and his father helped him with school loans. He worked 2 part-time jobs, went to school full time and played baseball. His scholarship was baseball. He was just one term away from getting his BA in teaching when his room mate stole all the money he had saved for the last term. He stepped back, talked to lots of people and then decided to join the Navy. The nuke training is so intense. People told me lots of people drop out because it is so tough. My son said the material was not so tough but they threw it at them so fast it was hard to take it all in. Sometimes he had to choose between sleeping or studying so he could pass a test. He called the other day and said "Hi Mom, I'm in S. Korea." He sounded so happy and confident. we have not seen him since a year ago last June and he couldn't get leave before deployment so it is hard thinking of him not being here for family holiday gatherings and such. I am glad he is happy though and hope he does get to see the world, but of course, I pefer he see safe places in the world. Silly me. They go where they are needed. He is pleased with his job on the sub and that should help him. He told me not to write and send care packages though because there is no room on he sub for anything. that made me sad but I have decided it is OK. If he needs support, he will let me know. He knows I love him and am praying for him. but I am thinking I cannot resist sending a Christmas packages. Maybe I can fill it with things that are easily disposed of and he can share with others. H-m-m. Blessings,
