"And my son will be there to greet them! He arrived in Hawaii yesterday and he's very excited to start his assignment.
On another note- I looked for the Facebook page and didn't seem to find it. What is it called again? Thanks in advance."
"Ladies-Have a wonderful time greeting your sailors. I hope to join you all next time as my son will be joining the crew at some point. He graduates training on May 25th and he is waiting word on where they want him to meet the boat. It is an amazing…"
"He's been in 2 years (already!) in May-Oh wait-I just connected with you on Michigan Moms- well, at least we found each other-LOL.
Thanks Ellen- I'll be sure to ask if I have any questions. Have you been on a Tiger cruise? Do they do…"
"Welcome to all the new members too- This is a great bunch of people.
Peggy B.-Your sailor will have some MI company next trip out. My son is in prototype but has mentioned he's been assigned to the Passedena. He's waiting for the official…"
"Thanks. We're northeast of Detroit-or 3 hours east of GR.
My son has word he will be assigned to the Passedena after he finishes proto-type so I thought it woulod be nice to get acquainted. He is awaiting the paperwork to make it official so…"
"Sharon-I am sure your son will do well-he's made it this far, right?
Ruth- Have a good time in sunny Cal.-we could all use that right about now.
Thanks for the good words- I guess I just needed to check in with you all.
Any meet and greets…"
"Hello ladies- I have been "off grid" for a while. My sailor has been in school so not much new there. He got word (not the official paperwork but he feels it's pretty reliable info) that he'll have the type of boat he wants…"
It's nice to see where my afghan will be going-It's almost done! It's taken longer than the 6 hours of it's name but I am also putting a bit of a pattern in it so that may be why it's taking longer. I hope to…"
Sounds good about our own group for Nuke/Charleston. I tried to get on the one that is already here and the people were not helpful (which is why I'm still on OCS graduates lol). Look forward to possibly meeting your son in January. I feel bad that my husband isn't with a majority of people from his class but there will be 2 other people from 27-09 in January.
Like I said, we are from/in Saginaw. Kate was born and raised here, while I'm from Royal Oak. I came to Saginaw for my first reaching job (four years four different systems as millages kept failing) then worked for Delphi where I retired after 30 years. We raised all three of our sons here in Mid Michigan. Josh (our OC) is our middle son.
Nice pictures Kathy - I have no ideal how to add pictures. I need to have my husband help me add a profile picture. I did finally figure out how to do it on facebook though. My son was proud of me for that.
Thanks for the reply. I was beginning to wonder if I had done something incorrect when I started this discussion last week! Anyway, my son is in class 25-09 And will be graduating this Friday. My husband, daughters & I will be flying to Newport this Wed. Can't wait to see John after 12 weeks! He will be in nuke school in Nov., so I don't know if you & I will run into each other, but then again, you never know! I"ll report back after graduation. Thanks again!
We are so glad that you are here! This is a great place to meet others that know exactly how you feel!
We have something for everyone here groups from boot camp moms to overseas moms and moms that like to scrap book. We have meet and greets to events that the moms set up to meet each other and have dinner or an outing. There are groups to help you with each and every step of this wonderful adventure that our children have chosen called the US Navy.
Please tell us about your sailor and what they have chosen to do in the navy and ohh yeah we LOVE pictures of everyone !!
Please let me know if you have any questions I can help you with.
