Hey I had never been on a social network before N4M, and then wham, my child is gone from these four walls. Boot camp was tough, but now we enjoy being empty nesters. It's got to be hard to be a spouse--many of the recruiters will tell you that's the toughest job in the Navy!
Hi and welcome. come join in the conversation on the Illinois page at http://www.navyformoms.com/group/illinoisn4m
Also, if you look in the groups page, there is one called something like Wifes, Fiancees and Girlfirends. You may have to search a few minutes as this group has grown so much since I joined in it April of 08. Thanks for being a Navy spouse. We are proud of you and Navy guy.
