Paul I sent you an email but I think it failed to go through. I will try to send it again in a little bit. Everything is going good. Thanks for all your doing. About the article. I would love for Kat to write an article about it. I will get with you later.

HA...I'm still "flying high"! Can't sleep, don't want to work, spend WAY to much on this darn thing but hey...they're worth every bit of it as far as I'm concerned. My wife has finally accepted that I've gone completely bonkers (Conner & Meg are her stepkids). I've dedicated my den TV to nothing but the Military Channel!

The Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh has a submarine on display. The USS Requin SS481 is the same class diesel boat that I served on in the 1970's. A number of years ago we took a group of Cub Scouts down and spent the night on the Requin. I never thought I would pay money to sleep on a submarine! It is funny how things happen.

Thanks for stopping by my Page. Military life is new to me, I was not in the Service. Back in 64 I got married and did not get drafted. I have a neice in the Navy and was in Afgan last year, it was really the first time I kept up with Navy life. Now it is a little closer to home. Grandson will start Phase 2 of BUDs soon and hopefully we will have a little more time to talk now, we have not really had time to talk much. I have texted him mostly but now we talk more. NSC have helped understand what is going on but more info and prospect from other just helps me understand how he went from GS to GS and a Man. The transformation is amazing.

My two boys and I got to tour the U-505. The tour tickets were sold out when we arrived at the museum. The guard at the entrance to the U-505 invite Andrew (in uniform) to take the tour. Andrew requested that I (a former submariner) and his brother go along. We really enjoyed the tour. The American diesel boats of the same time period were a little nicer. I served on a WWII diesel boat recommissioned in the 1950’s.
We spent quite a bit of time in that section of the museum. We also spent a lot of time in the wing with the railroad exhibits.

Greetings! Andrew is settled in at Whidbey Island. His roommate is a sailor he knew at ATT school in Great Lakes. He and some other guys went hiking on Mt. Baker last weekend. Class up is Nov. 13. Hurry up and wait.

Paul thanks for the article. My local paper is doing an article about us Navy dads. It will be on the front page this coming Thursday. HooYah! I am pumped about that. It's like the article say's word of mouth is powerful. I will share it with everyone once I get a copy of it. I have researched navyformoms a lot. Who's idea it was, who owns it, who runs it, and it's intentions. I didn't no any of that when I started this site for the dads. I thought a mother created navyformoms. I knew us dads were just as concerned and involved with our children as the moms and I felt left out. So I started the dads site. This article explains the amount of traffic on our site from Tucson. I've wondered who from Tucson has visited our site so many times. I do agree with the article about the other branches following suit. This is the best source of info for us parents with children in the Navy( navydads , navyformoms ) Us dads play a very vital roll in children enlisting in the military just as much as the moms. Thanks again for the article.

Paul - Thank you so much for the comforting words and support! Wes didn't sign up for IA, since he has been in Pensacola he has been training with the Marines (not his choice) because of the rating he is - AT. I didn't think anything of it until about a week ago and I asked Wes 'why are you having to train with the Marines you aren't in medical?' He told me then there might be a chance the sailors with his rating will be sent to Iraq, but only a 30% chance. With that I was satisfied I still had a good chance, then yesterday my ex-husband calls with an update from his talk with Wes and says he is going probably before Christmas. I lost it then, per my post in Single Parents. I had a chance to sleep on it and it makes sense for his rating to be sent there with all the electronics on bases, vehicles, planes, etc. I did call Wes back to ask him if this was all true and he said, 'mom I should have my orders by Christmas but it isn't to say I am going to Iraq by then, dad must of mixed it up.' So I am doing a bit better in hopes I have more time yet. Wes will be a dad in January, they are having a girl and I don't want him to miss seeing his daughter before shipping out anywhere! Again thank you for all your support, it means the world to me to have people that care :). God Bless, Michele

It snowed this evening! Yuck, ugh, and all those other words. Morgan was the one wanting snow.....I think it missed him, 'by the mile', as he used to say. It's times like tonight when I wished I was living in AZ. Hope things are going well.

AH! You have two on flat tops. That is what my son wanted. He is to go to the Marine base Hawaii and be assigned to a P-3 Orion patrol squadron. We were blessed to have him home for a week during his transfer from Florida to Washington State. It was fun to see him interact with our friends from church and soccer. Most people are amazed at the maturity that he shows. I knew it was always there waiting to come out. I guess the Navy life brought it to the surface.
As for now he is at NAS Whidbey Island for C school. He has a room mate from his ATT School in Great Lakes. We have been exchanging text messages over the last two days. He seems to be adjusted and he has begun to settle in. Yesterday's work detail had him answering phones at Medical for the day.
