Great!! You'll have your hands full getting ready for school so don't worry about bringing a dish, we have plenty. We don't often get to meet an admiral! I'm really hoping for a good turn out, and it will be wonderful for us all to get together. Any questions you can also call me on my cell 602-369-6900. See you there!!
That's ok. I'm still trying to figure this site out too. Plus I've been gone a few days - we just saw our other son off to the Army! I'm emotionally drained! I'm excited to meet everyone too! Of course I can't wait to see my son!! I've only gotten one letter but he's written his dad, friends and grandma. I'm wanting another one -hope he writes again soon! My son did say he met some friends - I only got lady names but if I could find the moms that would be great!
Hello our SR's our in the ship and Div! I'm so excited for PIR! I miss my son soooo much! We made our hotel reservations at the Ramada that is where they have the Meet and Greet. So nice to meet another mom who understands what all this is like.
