Hi lisa! I'm rover fr Las Vegas. My son is also on Div 249. Any news fr your son? Did they run battle stations yet? I'm so worried about my son coz he send me a letter dated July 24 saying that he got a flu but he's trying not to go medical so that he can graduate on time and would be able to see us. Until now i haven't heard fr him. I am really helpless, any words from you would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.. btw, nice pics you have on your wall..
Thanks for requesting me as a friend. Can't wait to meet you Aug 5, 2011. My sons names are Alonzo Lee Early Jr. & Jacob Andrew Early.
Jacob is one of Division 249 section leaders and my son Alonzo was rewarded Captain of Hell Week. Because of his Big heart during hell week. I'm so excited how God is watching over my son and allowing them to become successful in the Navy. My Houston # is 832-661-6055

Lisa, Hello I'm going to try this 1 more time. It's mom4life and I am not great with the computer so please excuse me. I just wanted to let you know our sons are on the same ship and division!!! It helps me feel a bit better that I know another mom who's son is with mine!! You have some beutifull pictures on your sight and I wish I could learn how to do that so I could put some up as well. Alright one thing at a time. I read a bit on your page and I see your journey has been a long and trying one, so sorry for that. I will keep you posted with any news and please I hope you can do the same. Thanks so much, mom4life
Hello Lisa! I am so glad you got to go and it went well. It is awesome they can have their cell phones until the end so you can talk to them as much as possible. I broke down and called my sons' recruiter about his address. He was very nice and gave it to me. He also said if I will call back in a week, he should know his graduation date!
Hey Lisa, just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and hope it goes well. I have been out of pocket so to speak as we had a Relay for Life I was over which has kept me busy. Haven't got his address yet but am anxiously awaiting it so I can start sending the letters we have wrote. Best of luck to you. Lisa
