We're neighbors. I live in Terrytown, my son graduates Boot Camp Aug. 7th. Enjoy all the time you can before she goes. I thought I could handle it since he and his brother live with their dad in Illinois. He was here for 2 weeks before he left and nothing could have prepared me for not being able to talk to him whenever I wanted. (like I'm use to) I've gotten 1 phone call and his dad and step mom got a letter. It's rough for the guys tell your daughter to be ready for the mind games they'll play on her, and be ready for anything. Best of luck to both of you!!!
That is only 2 weeks away!! Great that you are going to the meet and greet before PIR. Have you joined bootcamp moms? It is almost time for you to join A school moms. Also, type in the type of job that your son will be doing under groups, so you can follow what to expect and get help from those moms. This site started last year 2 weeks before my son graduated. I wish I had the support back then. Another son has been in the Army 4 years, and I never found a site like this one for the Army.
Talk to Helen (Haley's moms). Also a Louisiana mom. Her daughter loves her job. Also I think that there is a group for moms with daughters in the navy. My son says that these ladies can hold there own quite well.
My son leaves Sept 28 .... and I wonder if your son was in the group mine entered with. He did tell me in the last couple of weeks two of the guys went on to Great Lakes. I would really appreciate your sharing of "how things happen" as your son has already gone to basic and what is he interested in regarding jobs. We live in Harahan. Thanks, Donna G.
