Navy Dads

My son signed his contract yesterday and ships out August 18th to Great Lakes.  He's actually been at this since November 24th but his first recruiter never did anything for him - never turned in any paperwork, no JPASS information, etc.  It was bizarre. 

We switched recruiters and he had my son through MEPS and signed in about 2 1/2 weeks.  He has signed for the MA rating and is very excited (as are we!).  He was offered  Machinist's Mate on a sub with a $5000 enlistment bonus, but he had his heart set on MA....and he didn't think a sub would suit him right out of the gate. 

Anyway.......  I 've been watching this site for several weeks and waited until my son signed to join.  I'll be checking in regularly.

Congratulations to your son and your family! If your son needs any help or needs someone to talk to, just let me know because I have been in the DEP for a few months.
