Welcome to Molly's Adopt A Sailor! We are so excited to be sending some love from home to your son's ship!! Please look around our page and also check out our website (mollysadoptasailor.com) to see what we do. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a message.
If your son is young and just out of boot camp maybe he is just getting used to his Navy life where as my son is 27 and has been in for a while. We have had many talks and he knows it's very important that I hear from him. It takes them a while to understand that just "Hi mom, I'm fine" is all we need! :) Hope you are having a good day!
Hi SailorMom59! Happy to help! Their deployment address is:
FPO AP 96678-1205
Your son's Dept. and Name
My son is in the Air Dept., but I'm sure it will get to him if you don't know that info. I hear from my son about once a week and his girlfriend hears from him everyday! :) I sent him cookies and told him to share with the guys only after they have emailed their loved ones! Hope you hear from him soon!
My thoughts and plans are to maybe car pool. We live In Columbia,SC. My intentions are to leave after work on Monday. Drive about 5 or 6 hours then stop to sleep. My husband mapped it out and he said that we were going to stop in Kentucky.
We would get up the next morning and finish off the trip.
It's just an idea and just so you the last post you posted about prayers to get there kinda of hit me hard. I know that I would be devasted if I couldn't be there.
I need prayers. I have no financial way, at the time, to go see my son graduate. It would break his heart if I wasn't there. then nobody would be there for him. PLEASE just pray that I can go. I know GOD hears our prayers. Thank you. :-)
Hello. I havent received anything or heard anything yet from him either. Am very excited to see him next month...we booked all our stuff today. we fly in on tuesday afternoon around 1 and we leave sunday evening around 7pm.
Calls for Recruits.org would like you to know about a program for the Men and Women of our Armed Forces. I am giving away free phone cards for Recruits to use while they are in basic training to keep in touch with Family Members and Loved Ones. I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp. Please click the link above and get your new Service Member the FREE phone cards they need.
