Navy Dads

Not sure if this is the right spot to put this but has anyone gotten there Grads gifts? If so are they allowed to keep them and what kind of gift is appropriate? Any info on this would greatly help Thanks

I got my son a NEX gift card.  The RTC posted on there Facebook site that they would be able to have these their last week of boot camp.  Plus it's good at all NEX stores so he can take it with him.

thanks my friend is this the on base store and can I get one once I get pass security tomorrow for his pir



Yes it would be the on base store but I don't know if they sell cards there, probable do. I made an on line purchase and had it sent to my son. I tried to time so he would get it right after BS-21, not sure if that happened but I tried.
I gave my son a Kindle electronic reader. He likes to read and, since he has volunteered for sub duty, this seemed like the ideal way for him to keep a lot of books in a little space. He couldn't keep it at Great Lakes after graduation, but my wife and I met him at the airport the next day where we were able to bring him this, along with his laptop.

hey All,

   Thanksd for the Awesome input. We were lucky when we were at the graduatioon to visit the NEX afterwards so we bought him a nex gift card as well as some goodies to remember our visit to the Great Lakes Naval base.
