Hello Barry, we have started packing and are ready for our trip. Jordan has called several times, and I am happy to say that I was home for 1 of the calls. It was wonderful to hear his voice and be able to talk to him for a bit. His DIV is doing very well. He was sick, when we spoke this past weekend, and gearing up for his final written test and preparing for Battlestations21. Thank you for your encouraging words!! How is your son doing?

Well, Monday was a very hard day. My wife is just starting to feel like a bit of herself again. The going away celebration was wonderful. I have discovered that as long as my wife is planning an event, this keeps her moving forward. Do you have any suggestions for where to look for flights?

Yes, the count down has begun. We are gearing up for his send off this coming saturday. My wife and I have been so busy with a move and the final preperations, which has been a great distraction, however, I know that both her and I just want to watch him and take everything in.....this is very hard. We do look forward to seeing the man he has become at his PIR. Congrats to Barrett...many many thanks to him!! Go Navy!!

Thank you for your commets. The count down has begun and we have 2 weeks left with our son. We have planned a send off combined with my wifes birthday on May 15th, this has kept my wife and I busy, although the tears are coming more frequently. Enjoy Barretts graduation. Were you able to find decent flights?

Welcome to NavyDads Barry! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun, useful, and educational as I have. Explore the site and make some friends, add your comments to a discussion or two, read the postings in the various groups-- even start one or two. I certainly have! If you have any questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...ask! I'm sure someone here will have the answer or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm lucky enough to have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) returned spring '09 from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) is about to complete her five-year enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Barry this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Barrett is doing! We do ask that you remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors in mind at all times. On the right side of every NavyDads page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link and the NavyDads Guidelines link.

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. Take a few minutes to read through this post as it will do a lot to give you some understanding about what your sailor is learning and why. And be sure to check out the videos as they address many of your questions and concerns.

As PIR draws closer, be sure to spend some time going through the PIR-Tips, Hints and Helps group- we’ve tried to assemble some tips and suggestions to make your sailor's PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul

Barry, Welcome Aboard!

My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to my son's future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads like n4m's but I was wrong. So I started this site so us dads would also have a place to call home. I'm new at this and I hope this site will benefit fathers that follow behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your Sailor. I'm so glad to find out their are so many proud Navy Dads just like myself. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Navy. Thank Barrett for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.
