I am a happy happy happy woman today because I received a letter from my husband who, as most of you know, is away at Navy Boot Camp. When it arrived in the mail yesterday I was so hyper dancing around the house singing that the dog started howling. Not even joking.
Granted, what I received in the mail was less of a letter and more of a form, but it doesn’t matter. I’m still walking on air! (And he snuck my pet name, FreeCougar, on the recipient line. Tricksy boy!)
The form provided his mailing address and his graduation date, which is set for August 2, 2013. (Only 48 more days to go! We got this.)
For those of you who know Jonathan, and even to those of you who don’t, but would like to adopt a sailor – if you would take a moment to write him an encouraging letter, send a card, or even drop him a brief line, it would be greatly appreciated! I want to smother him in love and support!
Jonathan will be at Boot Camp during his first Fathers Day as a daddy (June 16th), his 28th birthday (June 25th) and Independence Day (July 4th, duh).
If you would like to drop him a line, his mailing address is:
SR Freeman, Jonathan T
Ship 02, DIV 938
Recruit Training Command
3600 Ohio St.
Great Lakes, IL 60088-7105
This is the longest we have ever been apart and I know he is missing his wife, his unborn daughter and his five cats. Also, apparently the 900 divisions in Navy Boot Camp entail extra performance duties, so Jonathan has additional tasks to learn and rehearse and events to attend on top of the expectations required of him in Boot Camp, so he’s working extra hard. Any support and encouragement would be greatly appreciated! I am so proud of my handsome husband.
