Merry Christmas To all Navy families and their Sailors!

I know from this forum that some of us are going to get to spend time with our Sailors over this 2022 Holiday season. But, I am sure there are many who are not going to be able to spend time with them. As for me and my family, we would like to assure you that we will be praying and thanking God for the parents, the young sailors that are at home or out there keeping our great country safe and secure. Without the commitment that your kids made, my kids made, there would not be the Untied States…See More

Welcome to NavyDads Eric! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - My daughter Kat is now a Veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist (MC3). My son Eric (AM1) did two cruises on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, was attached to VAW-125 ("The Tigertails") stationed at Iwakuni, Japan, and was stationed at NAS Pensacola where he was an instructor (LPO) in A-School. Currenlty he is is San Diego and is attached to a new squadron (VRM-40) being formed. If NavyDads were around in those early days it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!

Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com Eric! When my son first enlisted, I was a little scared and worried for him. Not coming from a military family at all, I had no idea what to expect. What I found, was that he had made the most mature decision of his life! I found lots of answers to my questions right here on NavyDads.com.

My son Stephen was an AWO2 in the P-3 community. However, after 6 years of service, he was medically discharged in July of 2014. We are so proud of our son and his service to our country. I'm sure you feel that same pride for you child. This is the place to brag!
