Navy Dads

This Discussion is intended as a place where parents and other loved ones who have SRs with a PIR of 30 November to gather and meet-and-greet and talk about this adventure.  Of course, I suppose anyone is welcome. 

If anyone knows of others on facebook and, please direct them this way, too.

Hopefully, this will be a place where we can share stories about phonecalls and letters from our SRs. 

And I look forward, already, to meeting all of y'all at PIR.



Attention on deck!

From RTC:

There will be FIFTEEN divisions graduating Nov. 30th. RTC is abiding by the policy that Active Duty/military retirees and children twelve and under do not count toward the 4 invitations each recruit receives. However, if an individual is not on the access list they will NOT be able to enter the drill hall (NO stand by). Please plan on arriving at least two hours before the ceremony, which begins promptly at 9 a.m. Thanks to all for your continued support of Recruit Training Command, the Navy's only boot camp!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
I wish I could find out around what time my SR would be calling didn't sleep good to excited HAPPY THANKSGIVING everybody

Jim, I think you were there today, taking such great care of our sons? If so I wanted to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to you and all of the other kind folks who blessed us by providing food, phones, and 'shelter in the storm' for our sons today.

I got to speak with my 802 son for more than an hour and a half. If it was your cell minutes we burned I'd gladly reimburse in beer at the meet and greet (one week from today) if you are able to make it over to Sarge's.

It's been a wonderful day. I'm grateful to all those who served at the VFW today, who have served before in those foreign wars, and those who are preparing to serve in days ahead. Thank you parents for raising fine sons who are training alongside my own. I'm looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can.
Spoke with my son today, his group was adopted by a local church. We even got a photo, he looks good, seems to have lost some weight. One week to go.
I spoke to my son son also and sounds very happy and is doing very good says boot camp is a piece of cake and is ready to graduate,also the church that adopted my son for THANKSGIVING dinner was on the local news station in Chicago if you go to and watch this video you just mite see your sailors
