My Navy girl left her San Diego base yesterday for 7 month deployment....I was doing great on phone call number 1 yesterday morning, but then she sent her dress white photo just before leaving port and one more phone call before she left....I lost it and cried due to emotional roller coaster. It will seem like forever until she graces the home shores towards the end of this year......keep her in thoughts and prayer that she returns home safe! Thank you!45545

Is this her first deployment? No matter, mothers will feel the same way you do no matter how many times their child is deployed.
She looks very happy so she must love what she's doing. Good luck to her and hugs to you. May in Jersey

Yes, May...it is her first deployment. She went to San Diego after her first leave home the beginning of 2012 summer. She was home last month on leave.....I just keep hoping it gets easier as time goes by....

Sherri, it won't get easier, but your pride will cover that up. She's a wonderful young lady and I'm certainly thankful for her service. She'll be safe with all our prayers for her!!

Thank you so much, Sandy....since she graduated from Great Lakes a year ago, I have been convincing myself that everything is fine! I just really miss her a times.....

May God bless her and all of those who volunteer to protect our country. My son recently left his Navy career behind him, it does not get any easier but with the help and support of family and friends it got more comfortable for me. Think good thoughts, keep busy and talk about how proud you are of her.

I feel your pain. My daughter is an MA in the Navy and I dread those calls telling me she's going somewhere for any amount of time.

Sherri-my son is in the Navy also. Stationed in Naples Italy right now. He is headed out for a two month deployment in two weeks....his wife and the two little ones will stay there.

I know how hard it is, but she is doing what she wants to, and the ship is a safe place for her.....sometimes they get to an area where they will be able to call or Skype... Keep you chin up...it never hurts less, but it get easier to bear-sorta. My son has been in over 10 years...they have "done" New Orleans, Japan, Virginia Beach, and now Italy....My hubby was AF and we spent 20 years hopping around the world, so now I know what my mother felt every time we moved!

You and your daughter are in my prayers.....and thank her for her service....

Sherri, your our Daughter looks sharp in her whites. I will keep her my prayers to come home safe and sound. You must be so proud of her. I can only imagine the emotional rollercoaster you are on. I hope this forum and your quilting projects will keep your mind busy to ease things for you. :)

Tanya...she will probably get to connect with me on Facebook mostly...I am currently finishing the piecing of her quilt (Jenny's Tube technique).....but there will probably be two months there won't be much communication......

I thank her for her service too and thank you for your sacrifice. She is a beautiful young lady. It doesn’t get any easier but she has all of us praying for her safe return. Please keep us posted.

Sherri, thank you to your brave daughter for her service to our nation. I will pray for her safety and swift return. I know how hard it is to let a child leave and not see for alot of months. Thank goodness for the technology we have now to keep in contact with them. I think about my mom who got married (late 50s) and moved away. Back then you didn't even call each other long distance unless it was an emergency or extra special occasion. They used the old fashion letter writing to keep in contact.

I've had a lot of BF's leave from that exact same port for deployments. It actually goes faster than you think. Just keep yourself busy!

I will keep her and all service men and women in my prayers! I can't imagine how hard it is on Mom's when their sons/daughter's leave. I know you are proud of her, though.

She looks pretty happy in the photo! I'm sure it's hard. I would feel the same way if my girls were in the military. All of us hope you'll tell her how much her service to our country means to us.
