Hello everyone. I joined Navy Dads a few days ago and finally got a few free moments to post something up. My youngest has been in boot camp for a couple of weeks now and is supposed to graduate on 12/6. My wife and I are extremely proud of his decision to join the Navy and the self-discipline he's shown to prepare himself. I'm looking forward to learning more about the Navy from NavyDads.
the best thing to do is to click things and explore links......if you have questions, be sure to ask!
6 Basic and Essential Rules for Bootcamp:
-Do what you are told to do
-Do it immediately
-Pay attention to detail
-Speak when spoken to...otherwise keep your mouth shut
-Help your shipmates succeed
-Don't take it personally- it's part of the process
See what Boot Camp is like- yeah there's some "tough love" the first couple of weeks.....
have him go thru this guide as well-
Have you received the formal letter stating PIR date, mailing address, ship and division yet?
We thought our son would be in the December 6th PIR, but P-days went a little longer than we thought and he is now the 13th!
Either way, good luck to you and your son!
Apologies for taking so long to respond. Between work and a never-ending list of things that need immediate attention, I haven't had much time check in.
We received the letter a couple of weeks ago. Knowing that nothing is ever entirely set in stone when it comes to these things, I paid a bit more to make sure I could cancel or change the reservations without any penalty just in case. :)
Good luck with your son as well.
