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 was so glad when he turned 30 years. I said great he will never be taken away to war. Then he came to me and said I want a career in the Navy. I was devastated! When I looked into his eyes and saw how much he wanted us to be proud of him as a son, husband, and father I could only be proud... It's been hard he was 31 yrs this April and he will graduate in this July 2010. The only experience I have is from talking to friends that have had or have family in the Navy very little is said.. I look forward to talking to you.
Through this Navy experience, I now believe:
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
