What a cool picture Vitamama. Is your son a Sierra or a Romeo?
Jodi -- it was a big swim party so yes, lots in the water. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=579364628763352&set=a.5...
That sounds cool, Vitamama. Hopefully there weren't a bunch in the water at the same time. I think it would be hard to keep watch while in the water. But then again I'm not too fond of being in water where I can't see the bottom lol.
I agree Lydia, it seems like we were there at the waiting stages for sooooo long. Now he is flying and doing what he was trained to do. This week they had a big 'steel beach party" on the upper deck and then swimming, where the sailors jumped over the edge of the boat ( 35 feet). He had to be in the water for 5 hours watching over the people swim. Shoulders got sunburned!!! That's my boy!! :) And they are really good on the ships FB page to have lots of pictures. I haven't seen one of him, but their helo is all over the place!!!
GMom, I'm glad I bought the video from graduation. Even though it isn't geared just to the 800 division like our videos probably were it didn't have the crying baby on it. J seemed to do okay with RSS. It was when he got to A school that I got worried. He tends to stress out during tests but after a few bobbles he did fine. His dad and I are glad he's in Jacksonville as it is a littler closer. If we decide to fly to visit him instead of driving it will be less than a plane ticket to San Diego. We hope to visit him once he gets settled.
Its so awesome when you all share about your Sailors moving on through the pipeline.. I remember how hard it was for me.... he was just fine hahaha... I am the one that got more gray hairs and gained about 20 pounds from worry!!!! Now he is totally done and has been for a while - loves his squadron and loves deployment. Loves San Diego too! perfect place for our surfer boys to be! Im told that they also like JAX... so not to worry there. SERE, my son said that it gave him a new perspective on life in general and a new respect for life. Other than being starving and sleep deprived, he was awesome when he called that thursday. So hang in there SERE mammas!!!! (I know, easier said than done as I recall )
Jodi - How could I forget that disrepectful family sitting below me, it was the utmost distraction. You know, I think about that often and REALLY wished I would have said something. All my video has in it is crying baby! Nevertheless, it has almost been a year....son has done so well, it's not been easy for him, he truly struggled with RSS in Pensacola as he watched friends drop out and some just not make it. As much as G loves San Diego, we selfishly would have loved for him to Jacksonville! (Only 4 hours for us) but we wanted him to see and do and go... a true time of his life to experience all he wants to without any other committments except to himself and the Navy. PROUD MOM!
GMom, I'm so glad to hear your son is doing so well. I can't wait until J gets to that phase. I think he was hoping for San Diego since most of his buddies are heading there but will be heading to Jacksonville after SERE.
It doesn't seem that long ago since our boys left for bootcamp, does it? Remember sitting PIR with that baby crying non stop? Wow, time sure flys.
Gmom- I am definitely going to share your post wth my son who is in the DEP program. I'm so glad that your son is doing well and enjoys his job so much! How exciting (as a mom) to see our children grow into adults and achieve their personal goals!
Great news from my son in San Diego. He's been there since the beginning of March from Pensacola. SERE was done first thing, then he waited to class up for FRAC...they had him working in a parachute repair shop (which he loved!) then working around the schoolhouse, now he starts school on Monday. He's excited, we are thrilled for him to move on through the pipeline. He's surfing and cove diving and at the beach every spare second. We are from Florida, but he says California just "blows that away"! He is having a great time and is ready to buckle down for the next phase. He's done all this in the inside of a year. We miss him terribly but he's doing great.
