Wow!!!

Wow it seems like an eternity since Julian left. Young absent minded with no idea of what his future would bring him. He was the kind of young man that would sleep till noon, one or maybe two in the afternoon. Nonchalantly get out of bed, say whats up and start his day as if he'd been up for hours. He would stroll around as if no worries in the world until I hit him with the dose of reality, go find a job (not that there are many out there) or we can have a discussion with the recruiter.

Got our first phone call yesterday around noon from Julian. It was great to hear from him and to hear his voice. He told that he only had 90 seconds to call and wanted us to know he was ok and he sends his love. My question to him was "is it all I told you it would be?" and his response was yes. He is sending his information for graduation to his mother which should be here this week. They were on their last p day and he and his shipmates would be moving into their ship either this afternoon or… Continue

My son is graduating ET A school on the 4th of september. He has said that studying is important as well as paying attention. The instructors are ther to help the students so if he has issues make sure he gets in to talk to them. The schooling is long and that can be taxing. My son has learned to balance his time pretty well through the last 24 weeks including finding time to hang with friends and be a young man on his own. He still tries to get me to do things for them and I am working on getting him to be a little less dependant since he is 3000 miles away. am looking forwardto seeing him late on the 4th

Welcome to NavyDads George! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun and useful as I have. Explore 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 have! If you have any questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is 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- my son Eric just returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And George this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Julian is doing!

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. Thanks to one of our members we have two excellent videos that you can access from the Video area on the NavyDads.com main page: New Bootcamp 1 of 2 and New Bootcamp 2 of 2. These videos will answer many of your questions and concerns and will give you a better understanding of how the United States Navy transforms our children into sailors!

Be sure to spend some time in the Bootcamp group- there are many questions and answers available to help you understand what your sailor is going through. And 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. And stop by the NavyDads offical store- Navyoutfitters.com. Show your support for NavyDads by wearing the latest in NavyDads attire.

And George- thank you for your service to our great country. Best Regards- Paul

George, Welcome Aboard!

My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to my son's 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 fathers that come 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 son's journey in the Navy. Thank Julian for his service for me and yours as well.Thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, EG
