Learning about NACCS and our son's progress

Posted on August 30, 2010 at 8:38pm 4 Comments

Our son is settling into a routine as he begins preparation for NACCS in Pensacola. There seems to be consistent PT and inspections and occasional duty and watch. But one of the things that surprised me is the amount of freedom he seems to be enjoying as he Phases Up and awaits Class Up. For example I was surprised to learn that he was permitted to have his cell phone with him. It's great to be able to communicate with him on a regular basis, but I was surprised that he had that… Continue

family "re-entry" challenging

Posted on August 17, 2010 at 8:47pm 8 Comments

We left Great Lakes with puffed chests, full of pride, emotionally spent and anxious about what the future holds for our son. His mother, particularly, had a tough time as we began our drive home. She cried with pride and also at the realization that this marks the true passage into adulthood for him. He's making his own decisions, carving his own path and snipping the apron strings, once and for all. Tough for many mothers to deal with. She made a comment that she… Continue

proud moment

Prior to observing PIR in person, one can only imagine what it's like to watch their son march past in dress whites...a US Sailor...but, in fact - what we imagined is but a fraction of reality. One of the proudest moments in our lives. Incredibly proud of our son, Lynch.

Welcome to Dennis! I'm sure you'll find as useful, educational and informative as I have. Please explore the site and make some new Navy friends. Be sure to read the discussions add your comments or start a new discussion. Browse through the postings in the various groups or start a new one. I certainly have! If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going sure to post them! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm blessed to have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) is stationed on the carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) just completed her five-year enlistment on the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Dennia this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how Lynch is doing! Please remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors and the fleet in mind at all times. On the right or starboard side of every page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link for some guidelines as to what we should and should not talk about in a public forum like And stop by the NavyDads offical store-! Show your support for by wearing the latest in NavyDads attire. Best Regards- Paul

Dennis, Welcome Aboard!

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 but found out 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 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 Lynch for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.
