Navy Dads

Well just got my first letter from my son in boot camp and I have never worried more about him than now, his opening line was that he loves and misses me and cant wait to see me when he graduates or if he fails,,,,,,,,,omg.......he has been in for 4 weeks and is supposed to graduate on December 20th..... I dont know if this lack of confidence is normal but its killing me that he seems to have none........

he's at a transitional point in bootcamp....at 3-4 weeks they adapt and accept and start to gel as future sailors.....there is nothing you can do except be supportive and have trust in him and the system.....when you write your key phrase is "you got this..."

I will echo what Paul just said. Half way through gets a little bit better for the division. 

Thank you.

Good to know. My grandson is now in his 2nd week and my son (his dad) worry worse than the women folk. I am proud of him and hope that all goes well. I will be using this site often as he progresses and praying for his continued success.
