Nice avatar! My oldest daughter recognized your son from the NEX. Chris had forgotten his cover and Hannah went along for the ride. Looks like our boys are in the same barracks at A school. Chris is ready to get started!
Fishmom, Just noticed your comment on PIR 4/16/10. You commented about your friend's son,she was from Wales. It caught my eye because my son was PIR 4/16 and my husband was from Pencoed, Wales, UK. My son is div. 153.
So Heath told you that he and Mike have been in touch? That's great! They seem to hit it off when we were downtown with them. Mike said he is making a lot of friends. Ten are going to the same A school, six will have the same job. He felt good about that. I will be glad when we get the call................Mom I am a sailor now!
Enjoy your weekend!
Hello, So sorry I have not replied, I have not been checking my page. I have only been on the PIR group. Sounds like Heath is doing great! Not sure you read my post on the PIR group, but Mike did call his dad. He was going to call me at work but I did not get a missed call or message. Not sure what happened. My husband said he sounded great. That's all I needed to hear. We received 2 letters 6 pages total. I was shocked. I will be glad when they are in A school. Nice that you have the inside info from you nephew. Have a great day! PS I am still running to the mailbox and phone
Sorry It has taken me so long to answer, I have not been on lately. I guess like us you have not heard from Heath. I am getting impatient. It is really getting hard. Do you guys have plans yet for graduation. I am looking forward to it. It would be nice to meet. I pray everyday for our sailors. My husband keeps telling me don't worry, if they have not put him on a plane and sent him home yet he is fine. Take care and hang in there! Margie
Hi fishmom, We received the box yesterday and the form letter today. How about you? We have made reservations for graduation. Mike said it is tough but he is getting through it. That is all I wanted to hear.
