Hi all, my mother used to be a member of this forum years ago when I first joined the Navy in 2010. She passed away in 2017, and I only recently located her profile.
One of the ultimate reasons I am humbled to have joined the Navy is that it brought my mother and I closer together, as she noticed my gradual maturity following enlistment. I'm glad I did so several years before she passed, because those were some of the best years of our parent-child relationship.
Her name was Syndi Holmes, and I just wanted to offer those comments in her memory. Thank you for your time.
