Nurse Practitioner's Son Is Going Into The Navy

Hello to all! My husband and I had a busy last few days getting our 18 year old ready to join the Navy. We sat in the processing facility from 10:00 until 6:00 pm and he signed on as an Advanced Air Crewman. Now I get to read all of his paperwork and figure out what exactly he will be doing. He has always been one to work with his hands and likes electrical and mechanical things. I figured that the Navy would be the best for him to get some education and learn a trade as well as travel.
He'll be going to Illinois for 8 weeks of basic training then back to Pensacola for the rest for up to 32 weeks. He signed on for a 6 year tour. I really hope that he does well for himself and comes out a well rounded young man. We are so proud!


  1. Congrats to you. I know you are proud of him.
    Tell him to enjoy Pensacola...it's a beautiful place.I should know...I live here!!!
    What a small world.

  2. Overactive, I'm sure that he will love it there because he enjoys the beach. I hope he does well in the Navy!
