Congrats to your son Chuck. There is a lot of great history in and around Norfolk.  Like Cheri, our son is still waiting for orders.  After PIR he stayed at Great Lakes, first for ATT School, then A School which he completed just before Christmas on Dec 16.  He earned his rating, and advanced his rate to E-4.  He was able to come home for the holidays, and then got 10 days leave starting Feb 7 to come back to California for the birth of his daughter, our first Grandchild!  Now he's back at Great Lakes waiting for orders on the date and location for starting C School.  Once he gets those orders, his wife and daughter can join him.  His been there since 2-21-11, and 2 Illinois winters have not been fum for a Southern California boy.  We hope he gets his orders soon.

Well it has been a little while from my last post. Here is the latest. My son made it through BC and A-school. He was home on leave for the last 10 days. That was a great time for me and the family. My son is very happy and doing great. I took him to the airport this morning to fly to Norfolk to his new ship. He is the newsest member of the USS Carr. He is very excited about his new ship. We are very proud of him and all that he has done. I will be on more for updates. God bless our sailors.

Cheri, I thank you and your son for is service. I still get misty eyed myself at Christmas and birthdays. My son keeps in almost constant contact with text and phone, when in port.Does your son know where he will be stationed and which boat he will be serving on?
