Sean the Sailors Mom,
I understand your feelings. I did the same thing when my son left for boot camp. I cried for an entire week. You are correct is does feel like a death and in a way it is because your son will change. He will become a wonderful young man that you will hardly recognize at his PIR. You will be so proud of him!! I am praying for you. Keep your cell phone close because in a few weeks he will probably call and give you an update on how he is doing, but be prepared because the emotions will start all over again. I cried for another week after I got the first phone call. Guess I'm just emotional where he is concerned. He has been in since July 3, 2012, and every time I hear his voice I still want to cry. He sent me flowers for Mother's Day and I stood in my office and cried. But even though I cry, I am so PROUD of him and I brag about him every chance I get. Keep in touch with other Navy Moms that are going through the same thing. When you go to PIR be sure and attend Sarge's reception so you can meet some of the Moms you have connected with on this site. Take care of yourself and write your son everyday. He'll appreciate it!
It has been almost a year since my son left for BC and he is now stationed in San Diego. I still miss him dearly - but know this is what he wanted and was the best choice for him. He loves San Diego and I can't wait to visit him in the near future. I am very proud of him and all of your sons and daughters who have chosen to serve in the Navy! Give them all a big THANK YOU! Anna BTW - I have cried many a tears as well............it does get a tiny bit better;)
Jo Ann - My 20 year old daughter did the same thing. She told me in August and she left for BC in March of 2012. I know exactly what you are going thru. I look back now and realize she did the best thing for herself. She was not happy with college but felt like she had gone to far to change. She is very happy with her decision and says she has absolutely no regrets what so ever (excpet for the first couple of days in BC). She is now in Washington State, just a 43 hour drive from me. LOL. I've been to see her twice and she has been home a couple of times. She is happy and that makes me happy. Hang in there, I did alot of crying. Make sure you keep your phone with you at all times, you never know when she might call once she goes to BC. Everytime someone would ask about her I would tear up. It does get better. She is my only daughter and the baby and we have always had a great relationship, but I think she appreciates her family alot more now that what she did before. Its a good thing.
