How are you!??? How is Ben??? We are doing good... Kenny is coming home for a week for Christmas! Im too excited!!He is doing great and should be finished by middle of January. Then I will be able to move:) Have you gotten settled yet??? How do you like Charleston????
Good morning. Did Ben say he will be able to come home for Thanksgiving? Jarrod said that they would be able to. Do you know what time we can pick them up? I can't believe that they are able to leave! That's great.
Hey! Thanks for the info! I appreciate all insight to nuke school that you can provide. I heard from Jarrod this morning about 6:30. He called from the airport. It will be good to have him closer to home now. Maybe we will get a temp address and news on Thanksgiving weekend soon. Love your new picture!
Hi Heather. Jarrod told us that he THINKS they have liberty but can only go up to 75 miles from base. I'm not sure where he got this info but I hope it is true. I guess we'll have to wait until they get there to get to find out for sure. Hope your time with Ben has been wonderful!
My name is Heather and I am 24 years old. My husband is currently going though T-Track and will soon class up for Power School at Nuke School. I have to say I am pretty impressed with my sailor. =) Even though everything he tells me goes over my head, I am very proud to be a wife of a Nuke.
I am here to support my
