I don’t think I will ever forget the day our daughter called and asked “what would you say if I told you I wanted to join the Navy”? I can’t believe I actually responded so calmly but, after taking a moment to think, I told her I thought it would be an excellent experience as well as a wonderful and honorable thing for her to do. I am sure she was expecting a different reaction, maybe even hoping I would try to talk her out of it but I didn’t!!
I remember the look on her face as she was being sworn in. I remember writing her letters every day she was in boot camp and always having my cell phone within reach so I wouldn’t miss her call! Two years ago today our little girl, now all grown
up and a Sailor in the United States Navy, graduated from Boot Camp. I remember her father and I swelling with pride as we watched her Pass In Review ceremony.
To our beautiful daughter and her fellow service men and women we proudly say THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!
