"Marianne, that's great that there's a FB page just for her boat to make it easier to look for pics of her and keep up with what's going on. Someone has to keep it up to date so there must be a good administrator for the page.
"The picture is great, Marianne! A proud moment for sure. Did she say anything to you about the unmanned plane taking off? I hope she got to see that bit of history in the making. She will always be able to tell people, "I was there.""
"yvette, I hope Rick learns quickly to duck! It's kinda hard for the tall guys. And the racks they sleep in, they must have to curl up. Is he out for a normal tour of duty or just a little test run?
I love hearing about the moms who heard from…"
Wife for 40 years, mother for 36 years, Scott is my youngest and I'm proud that he is now a nuke sailor. I retired in early 2012 after 25 years working for the U S Postal Service. I'm looking forward to the career possibilities for Scott in the Navy and was not be surprised when he signed up for 3 more years in 2012.
I am here to support or represent my:
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy Career?
When I heard “Navy,” I:
Was proud and encouraged it
From my experience with the Navy, the most important thing I learned was:
The Navy has helped Scott mature and grow as a person. Now he is experiencing new cultures whenever he is deployed. I'm very proud of his decision to join the Navy.
Through this Navy experience, I now believe:
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Hi Lorraine! Yes, I've been a member of Molly's for some time now, and enjoy the group's energy so much! As a corpsman mom, I try to send packages to other corpsmen stationed with Marines in Afghanistan whose moms I meet in our Corpsmen Moms and Dads group here on N4M, or occasionally to corpsmen who post needs via the editor of Corpsman.com. My son is an anesthesia tech, and is currently stationed in Naples, Italy after duty stations at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (Virginia) and with a Fleet Surgical Team. I've never known a postmaster personally before, how perfect for you to be heading up a Molly's adoption this year! ( I've gotten to know the folks at the counter at Phoenix's main office pretty well since joining Molly's :) they're terrific and always so helpful and supportive.) Congratulations to you on such a successful July adoption effort!!
From your earlier post, I think you said you were coming over on I94 to M14 to 275? If so, when 94 comes to 23 if you go S on 23 about a mile, there is a park'n'ride type lot right at the Plymouth Rd exit on US23.
If this will work for you, let me know the time you would like me to be there. My # is734-545-5978.
i did put alittle bit more on there yesterday i would like to thankyou.i will also send you a personal message.my aunt passed from cancer because it was not caught in time so this is wonderful to hear that you are a surviver!
Hi Lorraine, I saw that you are a retired postmaster and we need your expertise! Molly's Adopt A Sailor received an adoption requesy by a British group stationed near some of our soldiers. We have questions about mailing to them. Instead of an APO/FPO address they have BFPO. Any information would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks Lorraine, I am so excited for my grandson and so appreciate you wanting to char with me. i am an information addict I guess you could say. With your son being on there for a year I am sure you can help me feed that addiction LOL I have a second grandson that just went into the Navy a week ago today, YIKES the poor kid is going through that awful time right now haha. He also wants to be on subs as an FT.
Thats funny. Sounds just like my son. And his name is also Scott! His nickname is ISH, at least that is what all of his "civilan" friends call him. He is also over 6' and silm. He calls himself a missle launcher. Not exactly sure what rank or another name is for it..LOL. So much info all the time..
