Guess Where We Are Moving To?

Ever since Gerred put in his preferences a few weeks ago, I have been dying to find out where we will move to. With the week of the winging upon us, my nerves have shot into overdrive in anticipation. See, squadrons HT-8 and HT-18 found out where they'd be stationed on Tuesday. However, Gerred's squadron, HT-28, has a tradition to wait until Wednesday for their soft patch ceremony to deliver the news.


There were five wingers in Gerred's squadron awaiting their news at Ace's Bar tonight. Gerred was the first up. His On-Wing got up and gave a funny little speech about Gerred and his nickname "King Spider." He mentioned that Gerred opened a lot of doors when he talked on and on in briefs and that it was time he took the keys and kept his mouth shut. So his On-Wings gift to him was a set of baby keys. 


After his story. the On Wing asked Gerred where he wanted to go. "Japan, sir," he replied. His On-Wing responded that there were no overseas positions available this time, but that Gerred would be receiving his first choice, HSC-3 West

That means Gerred and I will soon be packing our bags for a cross-country trip to our new home in San Diego, California!

Let us know if you'd like to try to see us on our way out there. We're looking at you middle of America. Also if you have any fun tips of what to do in San Diego I'd love to know and we're both very excited for the future ahead of us.

  5. You'll have a blast in San Diego! Although I grew up in Southern California, I haven't actually spent that much time in San Diego, at least apart from visiting my aunt and uncle for the holidays. But I did used to love visiting both the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal, which I'm pretty sure are some of the top zoos in the country. Plus Mexican food in California is always so much better than what you find in any other part of the country.

    1. Awesome, I'll definitely make it a point to go to the San Diego Zoo. I'll probably ask you more questions about Southern California once I want to try exploring. Thank you!

  6. Hi Shannon. I found your blog thru Becoming Bailey. I was reading your post about PCS-ing to San Diego with the Navy. Another blog I read is Jenn Hopes (jennhopes.blogspot.com) and she and her Navy husband also PCS'd to San Diego too from the East Coast. She's originally from California. maybe you two can contact each other and explore San Diego. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
