Sometimes the process of your own transformation is a bit of a blur when you look back on it. You know you got to a new place, but how exactly did you get there? It can be a bit blurry, right?
For the parents of new recruits, the actual process of their son or daughter transforming from a civilian to a Sailor is something they don't get to see with their own eyes at all. So when they do see them at PIR (Pass in review - USN equivalent of "graduation" from boot camp) the transformation they see is something that takes their breath away!
Transition blur expresses the pride and admiration of this transformation! Whether the first glimpse of this transformation occurs at PIR, or later on at a family celebration or other gathering, it's a moment to be remembered and celebrated.
Transition blur gives moms and dads, aunts and uncles, siblings and friends (basically everyone in the inner circle) of the Sailor a way to express admiration for what they see in the way of transformation. It will be meaningful for both giver and receiver to write and read the specifics of what that transformation means for the individual.
It's more than just a new haircut, or maybe some weight lost and muscle gained. It's about how they now carry themselves. It's about stature, confidence, tone. We encourage you who are giving this card to be as specific as you can about what you see in your Sailor. They may not realize themselves the changes that have occurred.
You never know, they may hold onto this card for a long time - maybe even beyond their time of service. Your personal sentiments scribed inside may help carry them through a future difficult training, deployment, station or specific duty.
2MyHero offers military, and military only, greeting cards that express admiration, gratitude and encouragement to USN Sailors. These are not your ordinary military greeting cards. Not only are they licensed with the USN, USMC, USAF (and soon to be released USCG), but they also communicate in a way that is fresh and relevant.
2MyHero prides itself on creatively reaching beyond the typical imagery found on greeting cards for military. We want to express a depth of feeling and connection that will help bridge the gap between those of us who are civilians to the men and women we love who are or were at one time in military service.
Transition blur is a design that the receiver will want to keep and tuck in their hooch for those times when life in the Navy is boring and they could use a little "pick me up". It fosters the kind of connection we hope every military greeting card we create will develop in both the giver and receiver of 2MyHero cards.
If you know a young man or woman heading off to boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Base, you'll want to purchase one of the six packs so you can encourage them at every stage - during bootcamp, at graduation, there's one for their RDC and depending on how often you write them at boot camp, you may have one or two left over to send after graduation on their first assignment or next level of training.
Maybe you know a Sailor who is way beyond boot camp in terms of their military career. You are sure to find a card within the collection that is relevant at any phase of a Sailor's career. 2MyHero is happy to help you cheer Sailors on with unique and well researched military greeting cards.
