I am 44 years old and a mother to five children ages 15 yrs to 27 yrs. Our oldest son, Stephen is an Officer Candidate in the U.S. Navy and our 3 youngest children were all involved in the US Naval Sea Cadet Program at one time. Our oldest daughter is an artist and loves to paint and sketch. We have one granddaughter, Audrey Sophia, who lives with her parents, Stephen and Jordan, in Jacksonville, Florida. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 28 years.
I am here to support or represent my:
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy Career?
When I heard “Navy,” I:
Was concerned or afraid
From my experience with the Navy, the most important thing I learned was:
I had to trust God to keep my children because he is the only one who can be with them wherever they go! I also learned to stand back and watch them as they grow into responsible, respectful men and women.
Through this Navy experience, I now believe:
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Saw where you were from Hayden or Warrior. I live in Fort Payne and my Son's PIR is 12/17. We used to live in McCalla closer to Warrior area. How long have you been in the Navy. I know that their is someone in my sons Div from Oak Grove , but I haven't found his Mom on here. Best of luck to you in your Navy Career!
Hi Karla...thanks for the friend request. My daughter Kristin is in A school at Pensacola for the next few weeks but is home on leave this weekend. It's been a wonderful experience with Kristin in the Navy and the graduation at Great Lakes was great! I live in Oxford, AL.
Hi My name is Barbara. I have a son in Japan. We live in Huntsville and I would have like to have come to the luncheon but had things going on that week-end. I hope to attend one in the future. I read all of your e-mails but I have never wrote on the page to anyone except Charlotte. When I first was on Navy for Moms my Son did not want me to write things. The said he would get into trouble. So I have stayed off. It was ok when he was in the States but now that he is in Japan so how I need that contact with other Mom.s
Karla, I really missed the get together, but went to Arlington Nat'l Cem. My best friends son was KIA and his burial was last week. This Friday flying to Seattle to meet my sons plane....after 36 months!!
I think it was fate that sent us to the post office at the same time. I really enkoyed myself at the luncheon today and it was great meeting such wonderful people who care about so many others they have never met. I would like to be given the opportunity to help with what we talked about joining forces with the Sea Cadets to do some things together. Just let me know all the details. ~Susie
