Request permisssion to come aboard.

Ok - I'll play! Hope to help keep this forum up & running so I'll pitch in with an intro.

We have a son at USNA - now a Youngster. He had dreamed of attending USNA since he was about ten, so seeing him achieve that goal was a great thrill for us. There are few greater things in life than seeing your child's dreams come true, so I/we hope we can be of some help to other parents who are also going thru the process of application, etc.

Just for a little background - we currently reside in the beautiful Lowcountry of South Carolina, surrounded by rivers, salt marshes and palmetto trees. Other residents of this area include osprey, dolphins, alligators, and the Marines of Parris Island & MCAS Beaufort as well as the Corpsmen, Nurses & Docs of Beaufort Naval Hospital. (GO NAVY!).

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science/Pre-Law from Emory University, but my main career has been full-time mom to three boys. My DH is retired Navy (Mustang) starting out as an FMF Corpsman & working his way thru the ranks to O-3 (Nurse Corps). We have been stationed mostly in Beaufort, but also spent six years overseas (Naples, Italy) where I homeschooled the boys for three years. We are avid boaters (motor & sailing), and enjoy traveling to Annapolis in our Airstream motorhome.

Hope this post finds you all happy, safe & well. I look forward to "seeing" you all here now & then.
