Hi Mary, I sent a email about a week or two ago, I had some stress since my sailor been on deployment. I really need to network with the other N4M & other groups. Also, need help with my profile & setting pages. Because I hadn't been out here since I joined in July 2010. A new administration did email me back I somehow accidently lost her reply and don't know if my private setting is correct. I think it happen adding you has a friend, I don't know what I did wrong. Need an Administration help. Thanks Carrie
Hi Mary, You are now a member of "MAS We Ship Love" so you have access to all the addresses. Sorry I was a little slow because I am in a small town in Michigan and have to go to McDonald's to use their WIFI for a few days while I am here!! Pat
Hi! My son joined in 2009. He is on the DDE. He is following in my family's footsteps. My dad was in WW2 , 1brother retired recently as LT commander, 1 brother army, uncles, cousins, and my sister's oldest son is a retired sub man. He is single right now. He is a nuke. We are so proud of him!!
baylorbear works with me. Her daughter is in boot camp now. Kathleen - who started the USS Blue Ridge page lived in WACO. She showed up at work and for a month - even while Patrick was here - I couldn't figure out where I knew her from. She works with the rehab people contracted. I finally figured it out when we were in a meeting and she said her son used to be on the blue ridge. DUH
I am still learning how to navigate this site...please pardon my ignorance... Cameron left for Basic or PIR? Still learning the lingo.... Sept. 20th...after PIR he is headed to Charleston, SC for A school...Nuclear Engineering...
Hey Mary! I am actually no longer in Cornelius but I LOVED that area. I miss it quite a bit! So your husband is the FC right? I read your comment on my page, along with Deb's, and I got you two mixed up. I am still getting the hang of N4M. I went on here a lot when my husband first left but now that I am over the initial hump of anxiety I haven't frequented the site as much. It is funny to look back on here and think about how worried I was a couple of months ago and now I feel like a pro so far. I am sure I will have questions though, especially when my husband classes up for a-school. Anyway, has your husband retired? How do you like the Lake Norman area? Are you living down south too? Ok now that I have played 20 questions I will be going! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
Hello you commented to me a while back. Yes we ate in southeast Georgia and my son is no longer in ROTC he has graduated high school, bootcamp and " A" school and is now deployed. Im a mess right now he just left about a week ago. Do they get to call home very often we have heard from him once and he sounded like he wasn't allowed to say anything. Like his bootcamp call. I'm so Proud of him I'm just really missing him can you help me with some of my concerns?
