Hi heathersmom, Welcome to N4Ms. Nice pictures. Looks like you have found some groups. Have you seen Safe Harbor, or Molly's Adopt a Sailor? My son has been in the Navy almost 4 years now and is a submariner. He recently deployed and I thought I was ready. But they can not tell you exactly when they are deploying so when I read in the news that they had deployed several days before it shook me a bit. But these Navy Moms helped me get through it quickly. He called from their first port and said "Hi mom. I'm in S. Korea." He sounded so happy. I joked with my family that I was not sure if he was happy to have his feet on the ground or to be in a foreign country. Then I decided it was both. He wants to see the world. Hope your daughter does well. You will be proud of her. Blessings,
