Navy Dads

Hope all of you strong parents, grandparents, siblings and friends of our recruits are doing good. My son has been in the boot camp for 27 days today and I still didn't receive the letter from him :( so not happy about that. Rooms are reserved for his PIR on the Jun 19th, and now I am thinking about gifts for him for graduation. I was thinking about getting him a challenge coin but how do I find out what is the name of the ship he is at? He is Ship 13, Div 214, and I was thinking about a watch, so what is a good watch for them? Thank you all so much for your advice and support

OMG this are great, thank you so much.Any other ideas??? This is a first child in my family that joined so, I have no idea about traditions when it comes to graduation. Blessed day everyone

We got our son a Casio G Shock watch when he had his PIR.  He still wears it today.  We got ours at Kohl's (and if you work it right you can get it on sale and with a 30% off coupon like we did!).  We also got him the Challenge Coin for the ship he was on.

My son is on Ship 13, Div. 213.  The ship is the USS Marvin Shields.  There is a challenge coin available.  I already bought one.  It arrived in about 10 days.
