Hi I'm Sue,
I live in Idaho and I'm a happily married proud mom of 3 . Two sons and one daughter.
My husband is retired airforce (22) years, so it will be nice to be a part of the Navy family too.!!!
My 18 year old son left for bootcamp 17th Aug, graduated 10/14.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
My son will have a good future.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
I live in Lakeland, Florida, its nice to meet you.
What is your sons job?
My son is an AMAA, his name is Landon Anderson , 137 , Lemoore California the Kestrils, he works on the F18s.
He is also fairly new to the Navy, he graduated PIR 8/5/11 went to C school in Pensacola and went to LeMoore, thinking he would go on to his A school to find out three days later he was being deployed. He seems to be enjoying his job.
So, in my son's last letter he told me that he's passed the PFA and the division won their 2nd academic flag (he's the recruit academic PO), flagged their 2nd test and drill inspection. He said he'd been sick, but had requested to be fit full full duty, which they allowed (although they looked at him strangely:)
If he WAS ASMO, wouldn't they let him call home to say his PIR had changed?
