I was so blessed with the opportunity to see my boy graduate on Friday the 16th. A big thank you to the moms in need fund you were my life saver. I was literally at wits end when I saw the post on the boot camp Facebook page. Prayers are answered by you ladies!!! It was great experience I am happy to be a part of this Coast Guard family and such a great group! My journey is one I will never forget. After Graduation my coastie and I flew out Friday to journey home. Due to extreme weather I got to spend an extra day and a half with him at the Denver airport. It was a great bonding experience! We made it home safe Sunday afternoon and all is well!! Again I can't thank everyone enough!!
"I am eternally grateful for everyone with the mom in need fund. My son's recruiter asked him if anyone was going to his graduation, he said no we couldn't afford it. The recruiter handed him a pamphlet for the mom in need fund. I had never been more hopeful in my life. I'll never forget my excitement the I found out I was going to be able to go.
The joy and pride I felt for all who graduated Tango 193 is insurmountable. The emotional roller-coaster of finally holding my son after 8 long weeks was amazing. The tears of wouldn't stop. Thank you for allowing me to participate in such a milestone of my son's life. I will definitely be supporting this endeavor so other moms can have the same opportunity I did. Thank you so very much.
With much love."
