Dear Navy Moms:
I want you all to know that I remember what it was like for me (so long ago). I had to remind myself on a daily basis that "my little boy" was becoming a young man and he was growing up (without me). That was hard to swallow, but I managed to make it through. All these new experiences that your kids are having are very normal. The way they handle those new challenges are mostly depended on what sort of mindset each of them have. Of course there are going to be…Continue

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). I suggest "Just My Friends" since you have chosen to include pics of your loved one on your My Page. (You can remove the pics to increase PERSEC by making change 5 if you choose.)
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your loved one.
Where is your loved one stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be groups I can direct you to.
Our son is on the USS Arleigh Burke. They leave tomorrow for about 6 months or so. He is a GSE FR. Its a lot of hard work dealing with the old destroyers I guess. We are looking forward to going out to Norfolk when the ship comes back to port. I did hook up with a lady that rents out her house. I guess its directly across the bay from the base. We are just hoping that we have enough of a heads up to get the house rented and get ourselves out there to see them come in. This is all very new for us so its nice to talk to a veteran Mom. Our son enlisted right out of high school.
OK, after having a headache all day I think it is starting to go away. Hopefully that means tomorrow will be "normal". Ha, Ha.
If it starts at 1, we should probably leave at 12:15, as you never know what kind of traffic, or parking there may be.
I'll still call sometime tomorrow night. We have an Art Fair at school that I need to go to --- from 6:30 till ?
Have a good Friday, and try to be good :)
I'm glad that you are doing better. I'm still checking the calendars for Saturday. I am getting things ready for the week. So far have Meetings and church 3-4 days. Hope that I can keep it all straight. :)
I'm excited that your sailor is moving along.
Maybe I can hitch a ride Saturday?
did you son mention that the sailors on Enterprise need any supplies? I joined Molly's Adopt a Sailor and that group mentioned that the sailors on the ships in Japan needed stuff because they were giving everything they had to the people in Japan.
What if we have people bring stuff to the next lunch and contribute to the shipping? Would you ship them to him (then you wouldn't have to give out his address) and have him distribute stuff?
