    Hi,
    Wow, you are 24 and already have a BSN and have been stationed for three different tours? With a year between each?

    How does this work? My reason is that I will be shipping to my first base soon and have three cats that I am arranging for a foster in case of trainings and/or deployments. I hadn't thought that I'd be away from them just "that" much.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Heya neighbor!
    I went to UIC for one year and have lived in the Southwest suburbs for most of my life. Born in Chicago and lived here too. My undergrad is from St. Xav's, my Associate from SSC and I've worked at Christ, South Suburban Hospitals in the South Suburbs. Oh yeah, also took my EMT at St. James Hospital through Prairie state college in Chicago heights too!

    O.F. graduate.

    Diego Garcia, OUCH!! I would assume you were not "mamma3munchkins," maybe "singlehotmamma" then? I was in San Dog back in '97-'00, good times. Get a dog and go to "dog beach," kids will love it, I know we did.
