Hi Jaz Please excuse me for not commenting back I know you may not even remember it has been awhile You wouldnt believe that all of this time that I have been visiting the site that I never take the time to check MY OWN PAGE WOW how bright of me LOL Of course now our kids are about to go through BS 21 and PIR is soon approaching I am keeping them all in my prayers and I hope that we will keep in touch
Oh really? What part of Michigan? Hopefully we will meet. My son is experiencing problems with his knee so we're hoping he can get through the pain and graduate on time :) No news is good news, so we're still going strong
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I sure is nice to meet someone feeling the same way I am right now. We received our first call from Tim on Sunday. We haven't got any mail from him yet, but his girlfriend got three letters today. Maybe ours will come tomorrow. I think my son is really home sick... I hope he's okay.
Sorry i havent been on lately busy week at work. Were all in this together, so any information anyone gets please post, it will make us all feel some what included! Went to the mailbox today and no letters, I really don't understand why, when i talked with Andrew last sunday he said he wrote us all several letters. Looking forward to meeting everyone at the meet and greet until then keep posting...
Great to hear your son is in the seabees you have to be very proud of him. My son is going to A-School at G.L. for corpman.
My son(Andrew) is also ship 12 division 260, we just made our reservations for pir 7/30/10 at the holiday inn. Has there been a meet and greet set up for the families to meet. We are driving in from PA. I havent stopped crying since he left 6/8/10. We got the 30 second call that he was safe, then the I have to go. We were blessed he did call us sunday, probably the best fathers day present our family got he sounded exhausted but good. He still hasn't received any of our letters and we haven't received any of his. One thing he did stress was to please keep the letters coming. Hope to hear from you soon.
He needed to know where his dad and I were born? He already knew, I guess he needed to confirm it. He said he was just trying to stay in the middle and not bring in attention to himself and so far he is doing better than most. Josh is a middle child and always a peace maker. I am from Manistee- all my family is there. My husband is from California but in the last couple of years his family is migrating to Michigan. He has alot of relatives in Ravenna. Who knows maybe someday I can convince him to move, although by that time we may be to old to shovel snow. LOL
