Just a Repeat of my Comment Post

I do not mean to "boosh" in here - and fully acknowledge that you Dads need to have a site to call your own! Dads are so important to our Navy Sailors and or any branch as far as I am concerned, in supporting our sons and daughters and have much the same feelings and questions, and issues as Moms do - but often handle and or deal with things differently! Maybe in a more "stoic" fashion at times.

The Navy4Moms have been a God send since I joined a while back. I just wish it had been around 12 years ago! Jon's father does not use the computer if but 1% and anything he derives from internet communication usually comes from me or the other kids. Tho I have caught him attempting to navigate thru a few things - in time he will catch on, but for now he would just as soon catch up and or find out from someone else. Die Hard Farmer he is! I am also a member of the "Pay it forward Navy Mom Style" site on ning - Kinda a way for those of us that have a few more years under our belt - can help those "newbie mom issues" -

But of late they as well as the Navy4Mom site have been my rock as my son deployed 5 days before our youngest daughters destination to GRADUATION arrived! An Event our entire family were so proud of! Emilee had been born 3 months early and is a very strong willed determined young lady- despite her learning challenges! So it was difficult for all of us - Not having Big Brother here along with his fiance of 48 hours here to celebrate the momentous event! So that kinda sent me into a "Navy Mom melt down " as my friend Jill calls it.

I, too have been bless with many many Military Veterans in our area - so there are and have been many times I go searching for one of them -for shoulder to lean on, as I help with the Veterans and Honor Guard Center here when I can - being an associate member - and auxiliary member. I love my Vets! I volunteered for 4 days when the Traveling Wall was in our home town community last August - and that is one of the most moving experiences I have ever done - So I strongly Encourage - Everyone to get out and go see the "The Wall" if it ever is in your area! Don Allen and his crew have done a stupendous Job!

Have a great Day and Enjoy getting to Know one another - and I am here to offer support and or help if anyone ever needs it.

Describe A Little About Yourself:
Just a navy Mom - with 5 children and son currently deployed. He is now an officer, who has been in for 13 years come July. I am not able to offer up much as to what my son does or where he is - as to protect both him and his unit, other than he is in the "sandbox", as I was told to refer to it as... It only reminds me of when he was in OCS and would tell us of the push up the Master Sargent would have them do - in the "sandbox" - where the cats on the base would often be found lurking around! OOOh Ick! Can you only imagine! Push ups in the cats litter box! Little did I know back then - that the Term "sandbox" would one day bring a smile to my face - when I would most need it! Takes the mothers mind off the worrying about son!

At first I was bothered by this - not being able to share and brag as most parents want to - but in reality - it is for their protection first and foremost. I am one off the up most proud parents - of my son's chosen career with the Navy and the Man he has become.
What Brought You To This Site:
My son is currently serving
What Were Your Feelings When Your Sailor Joined The Navy:
At first it was the normal fear - but that quickly erased and went to the way side. We all were filled with great PRIDE of the Career Path our Son chose, and still chooses today. He has been with the Navy for going on 13 years. Beginning with DEP - the beginning of his Sr year in High School. Followed by Officer Candidate School in 2004.

Welcome to NavyDads Becky! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun and useful as I have. Explore 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 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- my son Eric just returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Becky this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Jon is doing! Best Regards- Paul

Becky, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you have joined us. Check out some of the groups and some of the discussions that are going on. This site is for you to use and enjoy. We love to talk about our sailors around here and we have been known to brag on them a little. We are also here to support and encourage each other. After all we are all in this together. I have two sons and they are both in the military. My youngest joined the Air Force 5 years ago. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. Please thank Jon for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man.
We here at Navy Dads appreciate your support very much and I would like to thank you for your support of the veterans as well.

Becky, Welcome Aboard! I'm so glad to have the Navy Moms on here to keep us men in line. 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. We have many moms on the site and benefit greatly from their point of views and we are willing to help the moms in any way we can. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your sailor. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Navy. Thank Jon for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
Sincerely,EG
