Just a Repeat of my Comment Post
I do not mean to "boosh" in here - and fully acknowledge that you Dads need to have a site to call your own! Dads are so important to our Navy Sailors and or any branch as far as I am concerned, in supporting our sons and daughters and have much the same feelings and questions, and issues as Moms do - but often handle and or deal with things differently! Maybe in a more "stoic" fashion at times.
The Navy4Moms have been a God send since I joined a while back. I just wish it had been around 12 years ago! Jon's father does not use the computer if but 1% and anything he derives from internet communication usually comes from me or the other kids. Tho I have caught him attempting to navigate thru a few things - in time he will catch on, but for now he would just as soon catch up and or find out from someone else. Die Hard Farmer he is! I am also a member of the "Pay it forward Navy Mom Style" site on ning - Kinda a way for those of us that have a few more years under our belt - can help those "newbie mom issues" -
But of late they as well as the Navy4Mom site have been my rock as my son deployed 5 days before our youngest daughters destination to GRADUATION arrived! An Event our entire family were so proud of! Emilee had been born 3 months early and is a very strong willed determined young lady- despite her learning challenges! So it was difficult for all of us - Not having Big Brother here along with his fiance of 48 hours here to celebrate the momentous event! So that kinda sent me into a "Navy Mom melt down " as my friend Jill calls it.
I, too have been bless with many many Military Veterans in our area - so there are and have been many times I go searching for one of them -for shoulder to lean on, as I help with the Veterans and Honor Guard Center here when I can - being an associate member - and auxiliary member. I love my Vets! I volunteered for 4 days when the Traveling Wall was in our home town community last August - and that is one of the most moving experiences I have ever done - So I strongly Encourage - Everyone to get out and go see the "The Wall" if it ever is in your area! Don Allen and his crew have done a stupendous Job!
Have a great Day and Enjoy getting to Know one another - and I am here to offer support and or help if anyone ever needs it.
