My Heroes are my sons.

My name is Gayle Erato and I have two Heroes. They are my sons.  Mike and Aaron are both in the Navy.

Mike joined the Navy in Feb 2005 at the age of 20.  After graduating high school he took some college classes, but going no where.  He was hanging around with the “wrong” crowd and starting to not do too well in school.  Realizing he didn’t like the job he had and not liking school he decided to join the Navy.  He is an IT, Information Technician.  This is working on computers throughout his Command.  He is married to Blair and they are stationed at Pearl Harbor NAS, Honolulu, HI.  He really has pride in himself and his work now, so the Navy was a good choice for him and he plans to make a career out of it.

Aaron joined 2 years to the date of his brother joining.  He was going to college but didn’t really enjoy it.  He has a few friends in the Military so he got his info from them and his brother Mike.  He is currently in NY completing Nuclear School. He will be assigned to a submarine as an EM, Electricians Mate.  He is enjoying the Navy.  As of yet, he has not decided if he is going to make a career of the Navy.

I am very proud of my sons.  My heart hurts that they can not be closer to home with me and my husband.  But I know they are proud of what they are doing and are happy to serve our Country. My prayers are with ALL who serve and their families.

God Bless America.
