There is a terrible article I just read from Japan's Mom. Pray that it does not effect all bases in Japan. This would be so disappointing for my son and everyone else. His independent liberty means everything fhttp://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20160316_21/or him. This link is anyone who's sailor is stationed in Japan.
Hi there...haven't been on here in awhe myself. My son is enjoying A school in San Antonio. He was able to be home for the holidays...this momma was very thankful! He will be headed to Washington next.
Thank you for my message you left me!! I don't get to come on here much and I was happy to see a message from you. Its really hard to let our kids go, my boy is the baby of the family and its really hard to let him go on his own and grow up. I miss him so much. I know the Navy is the best babysitter there is but I still worry. I have 2 boys 19yo & 23yo, and even though I was proud of my son enlisting in the Navy I was sad too. So I look to babying my dogs right now lol.. Its hard to let go of that momma role, they will always need their moms I don't care what they say lol. I know you must be very proud of all your kids. Hugs
Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
I also read that they passed the marlin spike test (it has to do with ropes) and the division won the chief petty officer challenge (whatever that is) and won the flag. Sounds like theybmust be working together now! His letter was VERY positive!
