"I am so happy for those of you who have your sailors home for the holidays! My girl is home as well and it is a joy to her family and friends. Her siblings who used to fight argue and bicker cannot get enough of dragging her off for "my time…"
"The calls are few and far between.. the whole time she was in BC, I got the "Im here" call, the "We passed a test" call, and the "Im a Sailor" call, she wrote and said that calls were really random, they had been…"
"i am relieved that my girl likes her roommates, she says they are very quiet, andf hardly ever there. They have no light in their room, they put in a request for a lightbulb (burnt out) and there arent any at the NEX. She says she's not sure…"
"Just got a text from my daughter, she says she's cold and wants me 2 make her some homemade cocoa right now... I asked her, would it do you any good if I told you that your cup is on the table with marshmallows melting in it right now? She said…"
"Hello, everyone! It's great to check in and read updates on everyone! My sailor comes home to visit for Christmas on the 18th and all her friends are checking in asking when she will be here, I dont want to share her, though I will,…"
"I was asking my daughter about the meal deduction, as she was talking about going out to eat with some friends..(the Mom in me.."if they are deducting money for feeding you, you should eat there!!" LOL) and she explained to me that she…"
"Im sorry Irene, about Peaches! I firmly believe that our pets ARE waiting for us in Heaven, how could it be heaven without them?Their "pack" knows they are gone and grieves. I know that when my old Lab Forrest died, all our pets solemnly…"
From my experience with the Navy, the most important thing I learned was:
So, far my daughter left for Bootcamp in Great Lakes on Sept. 23, other than the call to let me know she had arrived, I havent heard anything from her and I miss her SOOO much. I am proud of the choice she has made, but I cant help but wonder and worry...
Hi, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group. Is your daughter in school @ GL or in boot camp? Has she been told if she will be an ET or an FC? Looking at your great photos it looks like she has already graduated.
Hi, just a note to say that many at BC come down with bronchitis and pneumonia...especially the last. My son did and it kept him from passing his Special Ops testing. Make sure your daughter keeps on top of herself...if she runs a fever or keeps coughing with no productivity, make sure she goes in and gets checked out. Just wanted you to be aware.
HI :) Donna from New Orleans here and I just came across your page ...... My son, Andrew is in Ship 7 Div 5 also PIR this coming Friday, Nov. 20th. Awesome if they may know each other by now! Looking forward to meeting you and all the other families of our soon to be sailors! God Bless all, Peace Donna G.
Yes, Yes, Yes, we still need a space at PIR. That would be wonderful if Beth could put my sister in law on her list. Her name is Terrie Lynn Stilwell. I would tell you more about my daughter but I have to be careful about what I post because she is going into the inteligence department. If you send me your email I can send you more information so that your daughter can connect with mine.
