One more week!!! Jen said Scott has been sick. We haven't received a letter since 7/11. Jen has kept us posted. Rough week for the guys. Gas chamber, Battle stations, and getting ready for graduation. See you in one week.
Hi Jessica, Jen said you were out of the country. Hope you had a great time?
Our plane gets in at 6 pm so we'll be a little late getting to the Ramada. I made the plane reservations before the hotel and didn't know about them having a mixer. See you 7/29!!!
When my son first enlisted in the Navy I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to his 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 Navy Families that follow behind me. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your sailor. I wish you two the best in your new journey together in the Navy. Thank Darel for his service for me and thanks again for joining.
Welcome to NavyDads Darel's Princess! I'm sure you'll find the site as useful, educational and informative 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 will be 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) just completed her five-year enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Darel's Princess this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Darel 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 sailor will be 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
