As of 8/24, I have a Sailor!!!!!!!!!
We are now in week 8 since he left home and I will get to see him, hug him, and spend some time with my Sailor son in just 2 days!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can hear in his voice that he has grown up and changed. It will be a bitter sweet time for me. In my eyes, he will ALWAYS be my Baby boy, but to the rest of the world, he is a Sailor and will spend 24/7 for the next 8 years, at least, helping to protect our country and freedoms.
From Great Lakes, we head to Goose Creek for 18 months of Nuke school and from there, we head to a sub. Yes, WE. Our family is a close family and what affects one, affects all 4. We will all go through Nuke school and on the sub with our Sailor in our special way.
