Hi Jim,
Thank you for getting back to me.
Sorry about closing that disscusion.
I see that I can donate blood (actual blood) to the military through the Armed Service Blood Program. I found that shortly after I posted that blog. I was not sure if we had to wait until a military base had a blood drive or if we could go there anytime we wanted to.
To the taxes comment we all donate finacially. I was hoping to do a little more through blood donations to the military DIRECTLY.
As far as my comment, it is Standard Operating Procedure to wait 8 weeks between whole blood donations, which is the only way Great Lakes will take blood donations. My last donation was on the 24th of March, to the Blood Centers of Wisconsin.
Sorry for confusing blog post.
Hope this clarifies.
Thanks again
Z Dad

Thank you, Jim for the welcome.  This site has been such a help to my husband and I - especially because we haven't heard from our son yet, and it seems like there's so much to learn.  We're patiently waiting for that first letter.  In some ways, we figure that no news is good news!  We really appreciate all of the info that you're providing!

Thank you so much, Jim, for the warm welcome! I am glad this web site exists and I'm grateful for the time you put in to running it. I really appreciate the story you shared about your son. I know I will be on this site a lot because despite having served 15 years in the Army, I know virtually nothing about the Navy. Thanks again and take care!

Thanks for the welcome.  My Dad and brother both served in the navy may years ago.  My son is the youngest of 3 and the only boy.  I miss him immensely.  He told me he wanted to be a medical corman so I am not sure if that is where he will end up.  His sisters and I wanted to make sure that he would receive our letters.  I received a box with his clothes and phone but I have not received anything else yet so I don't have an address to write him yet.

I am a proud and recent Navy dad. My son is just finishing his fifth week of basic at GL. I would just like to say that whoever thought up the idea of the TRIBUTE VIDEOS deserves a huge pat on the back! What better way to honor all of our Navy heroes, past and present! Thank you!

Thank you Jim, It will be a blessing to have other Brothers and Sisters to talk to. My daughter has been away for a year now and it seems like years. Thank you again!.

thank you Jim for your story. My son came from a military family. i being Navy,his grandfather being Airforce. But to be honest I was a little afraid for him also with the world being the way it is now. He is very mature and Im confident he will be ok. All we can do is pray for all our military men and women.
