Navy Dads

I didn't see a discussion for my son's division, so I thought I'd get the ball rolling here. Just got a letter today, and he's doing well. He's still getting used to the early hour wake ups, rushing through the can, and getting yelled at; but, he loves the chow...you gotta know my son, LOL! Will be making reservations this weekend for attending PIR ~ it will be here before you know it.

    rc     there are  several of us aboard     got my first letter yesterday  he has lost several  lbs

            has a few   sores  on  feet    misses  crossfit  training    but  happy to be there     rj

hey rj,

I think weight loss, sore feet, etc. will be a normal condition for our guys for the next few months, eh?

My son is asking me to send his watch to him. He didn't think he would be allowed to keep his during boot camp, so he left it at home. I wonder if I send it, will it be considered a care package which we are not allowed to send during boot. Any thoughts?

 hey,   rc      glad to  hear from  you  !    my mail  stop over the weekend  and after getting over

                100    messages  daily,   i  thought i had committed a security  breach

                    I  think  at this stage   &  in our  div.     i'd walk  the straight  &  narrow

                    i haven't  heard of anyone wareing  a watch    you'll   see  him on the   16th   

                    besides   someone  tells him  what to do  &  when !    my  sr  wants  us  to find an

                    eating place that  serves   PALEO   food     (  i think thats  how it spelled   )   

                     he misses his own cooking       hang in there        regards        rj

Thanks, Ruth! No worries... I talked to my son's girlfriend yesterday, and she got about a 10 minute phone call from him. He's doing well, but has a bit of a cold right now. He's pretty confident that PIR on March 16th is a GO for him, so we're going to book our flights ASAP!

Hope your guy is doing well too...cheers!

Hey ss, thanks for sharing. Got our second letters today too. Yes, I know what you mean about "tone being better." My son sounds like he's kinda settled in...still pretty chaotic, LOL, but he sounds tuned in. He let me know he had a big inspection and some major tests coming the next day that he needed to get ready for. Those are the kinds of words this dad likes to hear...

Hoping to get a phone call today - our son is in the 808.  Letter say the shoes are bad.  He is used to a lot mor PT so the sitting around it driving him nuts.  Lots of waiting around.  Said when they get in trouble it’s wrecking there beds and making them all over again.  Just part of working as a team.  Anyone else here from their son/daughter today?
