My daughter, Samantha (23), is in the Navy, my daughter, Erika (25), is considering the Air Force and my son, Michael (14), would love to be apart of the Navy and fly planes. I personally am 51 yrs old and enjoy being a part of my children's lives. I am a 2nd Lt. in the Civil Air Patrol. The Civil Air Patrol is the US Air Force Auxiliary. My daughter Samantha and I are very close and we keep in contact with each other on a regular basis. She has grown to trust her Dad in many ways.

Eric, 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 daughters journey in the Navy. Thank Samantha for her service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.

Welcome to Eric! 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 she 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 Eric 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 Samantha 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 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
