Hi Chuck, everyone is doing fine. Garrett is still in Pensacola as a Rescue Swimmer instructor, while Valerie is a 1st Lt. in the Marines back from Afghanistan in October, now getting ready for a new deployment shortly. She is really loving her role, and truly feels that she was born to do this! I hope your two are doing well as well! Thanks for reaching out. All the best!
Chuck, LOL! I assure you I never disappeared, just got stuck working behind the scenes for far too long. But, glad you remember the good old days when I had tons of free time on here, man I miss those days... I hope you and the family are doing well.
My son is an AM, and enjoys what he is doing. We talk fairly often (phone or text) when he's not on duty. I know it is a little tougher when they are away. He took in a soccer game last night and got to enjoy Seattle a little. Enjoyed your pictures. Family is important to us as well.
Chuck, I am also from Pennsylvania. Didn't do or say much until my son arrived and settled. He seems to be adjusting and learning the ropes.I see you have two in. My youngest (daughter) has considered it, but has health issues that have kept her from taking the plunge. It has been good for Cody.
Any prayers would ease my mind for sure! He had two compression fractures in his spine from a bicycle incident in 2000 that are giving him great amounts of pain and discomfort.....he is finding it very difficult to perform his job repairing the SH-60's at the base and is working with medical to define the problem and what can be done
hey Chuck...meant to message you about Andrew making back to the mainland, but silly work got in the way---this is my first day off in weeks!!! Eric doing "OK"....doesn't like it much there. He's dealing with some medical issues that could have serious implications for his future in the Navy.....and dealing with a potentially serious mechanical issue (possible spun number 6 main bearing) with his beloved SS Trailblazer.....how is Andrew adapting to Washington weather?
I want to say it again Chuck ...It is going to be a whole new experience when the daughter goes. Stay connected to her for the next 3 months..lol. I kid you not. My daughter and I just went for walks and talked about anything and everything. Please enjoy that time.
