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.

Like any Mom, I want my boys to be happy in whatever they do in life!

Thanks for the info Paul! As I was reading it, I was thinking that it sounded like battle stations. Morgan enjoyed that, though it was long. He was put in charge of the first fire group. I know he'll have some great and not so great experiences while serving. We've encouraged him, should he not make a career out of it, to at least stay Navy Reserve. We know he'll be in then Navy at least 4 years who knows what will happen after that. My two boys will always be 'my babies', no matter how grown up they are! I'm hangin in there, nothing else I can do other than trust that God will take care of them. I do have a tendency to worry, I'll admit.

Where is Kat Stationed? Is she on the Roosevelt...The Big Stick?
Andrew just reported to NAS Whidbey Island, WA for C school yesterday. He won't class up till Nov. 13. I guess he will he may end up at the business end of a manual sweep device for a while. He will have to go through the sign off's on the watch standing again.

It's amazing what different types of jobs the military offers. I didn't know the Navy had media training. Three week underway? Could you explain that to me please. Morgan would love to go to Bremerton, he's been on that base several times. Kat is one strong young lady to handle dripping condensation, I'd be saying get me out of here! I'm holding up okay, had a rough weekend missing Morgan, okay, i'm still having a rough time! I'm getting used to him being in the Navy (ask me that again once he's stationed or deployed), and yes, it is a lot tougher on us Mom's. We're the emotional ones while you Dad's think more logically. Take my husband (Martin) for instance. While Morgan was in BC, he just couldn't understand why I was having such a tough time. "It'll be hard, but he'll do fine" or "That's what they do, they tear them down to build them up." Mom's don't want to hear that! I've said before it's a good thing Mom's aren't in charge of BC. We'd want to fix all their owies, provide a shoulder to cry on, let them sleep in so they could get some decent rest, etc.! I'm really hoping Morgan makes friends from all over. He's always been a very shy, quiet, guy who has very few friends, so I'm hoping the Navy will give him the confidence to make friends. How are you doing?
