Hi Melissa,

Thanks for the friend request...I hadn't notice you were from Michigan!  But my husband's job offer is East....Clinton Township which is about 1/2 hour north of Detroit.  We're looking at some more rural areas like Macomb, New Haven, Algonac or West Baltimore but we'll probably end up in an apartment for the first year to figure out what areas are good and that we like.  Do you know anything about these areas?  We have another son in college in Traverse City so that's a bonus!

Melissa,

I just read this and I thank you very much for picking up this very important part of our page.  Birdie was very concerned that she was letting us down and I told her no worries, we'd work it out until she wanted it back.  Bless her heart.  So now I say Bless YOUR heart.  Thank you, Melissa! ♥

Wow, you're in GR, so am I!  How long has your son been in?  This is my sons first deployment and he's been in a year next month.  I'm not use to this no communication stuff.  Not only is it tearing me up but his wife too.  She's out in CA going to school and working part-time but I can tell her heart aches.  I will try to get on this forum more often.  It was helpful during boot and met a huge Marine Family that I stay in very close touch with.  Now I know what it means by "Family".  So much support, caring, and sharing! 

 

Hope to correspond some more and if time frees up maybe we could met for coffee.
