Our sailor is on the Springfield. He's a petty officer 3rd class but his job is MM/AGanger. I think that's how you say it-he's into his 3rd year & I'm never sure if I have the terms right. lol We live in Ohio. Will be coming to Groton in September. He got married by JP last year & now wants a church wedding. I don't get on here a whole lot but will try to keep in touch. Nice to meet another Springfield Mom!
The apartments look perfect! I found out I have another friend whose son is already in prototype school and he rents in the same complex! He really likes it. She emailed me a picture today that he sent her of the complex covered in a light snow.
Hi Laura -I saw your post on the apartments your son is living in in Ballston Spa - would you possibly be able to find out from him the name of them? My son is finishing up power school and thinks (fingers crossed) he is going to NY. We've been trying to do some of the legwork to help them find a place to live. Would appreciate any help you can offer! Thanks!
