Hi CDS, my son went through a few years back, and they gave his class leave Christmas Week. I don't recall there being any question, but it was a couple of years back.

As you know with the NAVY, everything is fluid and the timeframe for leave can change also up to the very last day.....

I hear you.  This job our sons have chosen is like no other job.  We managed to have a get together last summer with west coast parents. That's another issue not only are we all over the map we are divided by coasts.  One of the groups we support  is the America's Mighty Warriors Foundation and they had a great week last July in Coronado and it was great to have so many families in the same room.

Hi Greg, The Site is very low volume, I guess we are a bunch of closed mouthed guys here, OPSEC and PERSEC, and all. There is the occasional query and flurry of answers, then it is silent again. Personally, I wish there were a way for parents to connect locally.

Great, thanks for the info.

Greg- unlike N4M, NavyDads is totally self funded and is run by a dedicated admin cadre.  We have no intentions of shutting down!

Comment by Greg on October 2, 2016 at 7:23pm

Is this still an active site?  Heard that the site for moms changed over from the Navy to a private sector to monitor.  ??  Now it has been shut down without warning.  Just wondering if anyone has heard that this site is being handled the same way?    (I have not been active here for a long while.  Recently retired and have more time to connnect.  Son has been on the teams for a while)
