I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

good Luck today... I know how you feel today and my heart just dropped when I read your post. Today is really the first day of his new life. My son has only been gone 6 days and i am still crying on a daily bases. Never sad tears for him but only tears of being so proud of the decision to serve his country. Stand strong...NMH ( Navy Mom Hug )
