My husband is retired Navy, and our daughter is active duty Navy. I like to do counted cross-stitch and read in my spare time. I also play the piano and I like to do projects to fix up my house. Being the parent of a Sailor is different from being the spouse of a Sailor, but the pride in both of them is constant and strong.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

Thanks for the welcome. I'm still trying to figure out this board. I posted a message this morning, and although I got an email notification of it, I can't find it anywhere. I'm sure I'll become more comfortable navigating the site as I spend more time in it. I've been looking at all the different groups. Wow! So much to read, so little time :-)
