Welcome Aboard!

My name is E.G. and I have three sons and a beautiful daughter. I also have the most amazing wife, Cindy. Our oldest son "Evan" served as an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca and my family and I couldn't have been prouder.

My Navy Dads journey began when my son enlisted in April, 2008. I started building NavyDads.Com while he was still a recruit at RTC in Great lakes. I designed, built, and launched June 18, 2008, two days before his Navy graduation.

My hope is that this site will help Navy Families find answers to questions, share concerns, help another along, and lastly, a place to show their pride for their Sailor.

My son, Jairus left for basic training today. He will be a CSS (culinary specialist Submarine). I am scared, proud, nervous and anxious all at the same time. Jairus had to lose a lot of weight to get in, but he put the work in and it’s the first things he’s ever really worked for in his life. I am proud that he’s done what he had to do. I am confident that he will make it through boot camp, and I’ll get to see what the Navy has done with him.

Reading other dad’s comments has eased my mind some, but I’m a dad, so I’m going to worry.

Elmo, thanks for the kind words and introductory message.  I've invested a great deal into my daughter and it was difficult handing her off to the Navy.  Her PIR is at the end of January and then she's off to language school in Monterey for CTI training. The information found at "Navy for Dad's" and words by you and others has been comforting to me.

Thanks everyone, it's been an adjustment for my family and I having a sailor in the family.  When I hear friends talk about sending their kids off to college and how tough that is I think to myself, "They don't know n'thing"  Dropping my son off at the recruiting station and having to turn my back and walk away, not knowing when I'd hear from him again, was probably the hardest thing I have done since he was born.  

But it's all good, he's home on leave for a week and soon will be off to the fleet on a guided missile destroyer

Hi, all

This is my first post here, and I'm glad I found you guys. I may or may not have met one of your sons through my son. But all of the Navy personal have been very friendly and professional. I am concerned due to recent events for the safety and security of all our Military personal including my son.

I cannot mention which areas are of concern but in time I will know who and where I can bring up my concerns. Are there others that feel certain things need to be looked at or changed to make our guys safer overall?

My son Graduated Buds on 10/6/2014 and is in Alaska now and returning to Coronado on 11/26 will be graduating 6/12 /2015 is there any other fathers  that have your son graduating then?

Thanks for the comment. Just realized I put the wrong information. Lucas is scheduled to serve as an AT.

Right now I am waiting on the "I'm a sailor call". We are scheduled to graduate Nov. 21st. We can't wait to watch him walk.
