Hello all, I'm Sarah. I am a navy wife. My husband is a Corpsman. We are stationed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. I am currently a stay at home mom with our precious baby boy, Liam. He was born on May 21, 2011. I plan on going back to school once we get more settled here in Hawaii.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it

Be patient. Listen to the old saying.. "no news is good news." WRITE your sailor all the time. They need it. They look forward to our letters. Support your loved one throughout the entire process. Everything that is hard on us is even harder on them. I am still working on my patience. I still breakdown regularly. Be faithful and stand by your sailor's side.

Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
AHHHH!!! That is fantastic!! I am finishing school in May and then I will be moving with Barry to where ever. He graduates from Power School tomorrow and he has one more school left prototype!! We also have gotten engaged and we are getting married in October this year! That is so exciting you are having a baby!! Congrats! :) And Hawaii is awesome I hope we get stationed there!
Yeah Barry started school Monday and he graduated May 27th so you see how much time he had to do nothing. I' sure he will call as soon as he gets the chance. I was very lucky to be able to call so fast!
This past weekend was amazing! We did the exact same thing that you guys did. We sat around the hotel the whole time and just talked and laid around. We went to the pool as well. I am so happy that you had an amazing weekend. Barry is in South Carolina and lucky he could have his phone as soon as he got there and I didn't have to wait any longer. I'm sure he will be calling soon!! Let me know if you need anything. I thought you said he was going to be in Cali?
