I have three sons and three bonus (two sons and a lovely daughter) and have been married going on 7 years to a wonderful man named James. My oldest, Christoffer, is the Navy man...I'm so proud of him. He is so excited about the Navy. His maternal grandpa, uncle and paternal bonus brother are all navy guys. I even almost joined up but went to college instead. Chris told me about his decision after my father's funeral where he had a Naval send off...quite impressive. Chris has matured into a wonderful man. The Navy will be lucky to have him. He chose a SECP (submarine electronic computer program) and I look forward to visiting him in far away and exotic ports!! He'll get a good education and I wouldn't be surprised if he becomes a career man.

Through this Navy experience, I now believe:
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hey! Thanks for the compliment! I'm sure you will be getting a letter or two pretty soon! Hopefully they will be able to call this week! 32 days! That's awesome that you are a social worker! Where are you working? I would LOVE to work as a social worker for the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL. They are searching for social workers and interns, SO I am praying my adviser will be able to "hook me up" with an out of state internship! I would also love to work under a Psychologist, like a case manager. I'm going to go ahead and get my masters, because it's only a one year program at the University of West Florida! I'm just so ready to graduate!
I dont know if you found what you needed but there is a group for ship 10 div 195. You can probably access it faster if you go through my page. There's alot of good info there.
Hope this helps. Brandy
