I am a new Navy mom. My daughter has joined and is leaving for bootcamp on Monday Oct.27th. 2008. I am very nervous but I know she will do well and this is the best. I have 1 older son who is not in the Navy and a 10 year old who is going to miss his big sister.
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:
That she will get a good education that will help her if and when she gets out...She talks about making this a life time career, that will be great ...
Lori, I left you a message today. I can tell you that your daughter, husband and son are
doing wonderful. All this time Mike and Katie have know on another and Michael never
told me til just a bit ago today. The little turkey he has had a great time last night with
your husband and son. Aparently they both know plenty about both of us. So I have you
number in my phone and we will have to meet up shoot me an email if you have a
chance it will be great to meet you and even more now that I know the kids have know
each other most of the cruise. Take care and see you soon.

Daine my sons spring break also starts the 15th but he is only in 6th grade. My daughter told her superior that she has 2 family members wanting to go on the tiger cruise she told me the other day that it was being sent out real soon. But as of now no email from her. I am on the Arizona group but don't go on there much, most of my time is on this group.
Lori: Spring break for both my kids (in college) starts March 15. I got the packet from my son by e-mail this morning at work. Yours won't be sending a packet unless there was an indication that she was going to have a Tiger.
Lori, don't use Nimitz Mom project on your box. It should say Navy for Mom's since most of what is being sent came from mom's that do not have Sailor's on the Nimitz. It wouldn't be fair for us to take the credit because the project wouldn't have been sucessful if it weren't for them.
Good morning Lori, I have that address for you. On the cookies for your daughter
I have heard of pringles cans. But I don't know how many you are sending her.
If it were me I would put them in the papers you make cupcakes in and then
put them in an air tight container. And in the container put them in and make
sure they have no wiggle room. And then you may even take clear tape to
keep it closed and then put is in like a plastic grocery bag and tie it up
tight so they can move around or get knocked out and put them in the
center of you box and eithier put stuff around it you are sending or fill up
the area with paper or tissue paper you can even use tissue paper instead
of the cupcake papers. Ok for the address: Public Affairs Officer
USS Nimitz CVN-68
Mark on outside of box, Nimitz Mom Christmas Project
If you have a dept you are assigned to put that on ther
and if not put to Dept. where needed.
Let me know if you need anything else be glad to help.
Lori, if you could do 50 simple goody bags with candy and a card attached would be
great. I have my sons shop so I did a little more for them but I am going to have extra
to put in on the ones we lost. At this point I don't think it matters what is in it the point
is putting the effort foward to help make up for what we ask. Write now is a perfect time
to buy candy that is left from Halloween that isn't marked for halloween. And then get those cello bags from the dollar store put a candy can with it and get a couple of boxes
of card at the dollar store. And you should be able to fit in a large flat rate box. I have
shipped in both kinds of boxes so I don't know that it makes any difference the post
office charges the same 11.95. We just need everyone to give some extra to make
sure everyone has something that is what matters.
