Appreciate it Jim. Best job in the world despite where society is today. It was just time for me to move on. No regrets and not a bad thing to say about it.

Jim thanks so much.  My son Connor is my first military son.  My oldest son is in college.  Two of my uncles and one grandfather were in the Air Force.

I never served.  I was a police officer for 25+ years just recently retiring and now working for our county prosecutor.  

All is good but I do miss him already!!!

I'm going to take some time and delve into your website.  I already read about the taxi to graduation.  Great stuff.  He graduates sometime in November and stays in Great Lakes fro his A school.

Thanks for sharing about you and your family!!

Thanks Jim

My son Ben is my first. My dad a Vietnam era Vet I never served. 

I’m new to this and worry but an so damn proud. Bens PIR is set for now for Oct 25. 

Thanks again

Hi Jim.  Thank you for responding back. I have mixed emotions on my son leaving. I just spoke to him and he should be in silverdale, WA tomorrow. I will check out this site for sure.  Have a good evening.  Anne

Jim,

Thank you for reaching out, it's been lonely here with my son away at Basic Training. I am grateful and somewhat overwhelmed by the support that I have received in just my few short days of signing up. I'm so happy that I did. I feel like that I have new family members. Thank you for your words in easing me into my new family.

Thank you Jim.  Not just getting started as we've been through PIR, A School and now my son is in his Reserve capacity, resuming college next week.  He will have a two-week deployment in a while and then a longer one later on.  As a Seabee, he's land-based.

Appreciate the welcome.

Thank you and im.looking forward to keeping up with him and enjoying the experience

Thanks Jim, 

I am happy to join this group.  I am a proud Navy Veteran and Gullf War Veteran, so when my baby girl took an interest in Navy JROTC 5 years ago, I was excited.  She embraced and excelled in this program over 4 years in high school, and has been Pro Navy since she started.  The fact that she chose to follow in my foot steps is the greatest honor to me as a parent.  She enlisted early in her senior year of high school, and left for basic training on June 19th.  She will PIR on August 16th, and I am one proud Dad.  I'm sure Great Lakes will look very different than it did when I was first there some 36 years ago, but I can't wait to go back.  My son also serves, but he is in the Army National Guard, and is also a police officer, so the military pride runs deep in our family. All of our young men and women in the Armed Forces make great sacrifices for the freedoms we enjoy and too often take for granted.  I am proud of, and thankful to each and every one that serves.

Thank you! I’m nervous for my son, but am sure he’ll do great. My father was also Navy, a hospital corpsman during the Vietnam era, serving in the Mediterranean. Long family line of service members in the military, reaching back to the revolutionary war.

Thank you, Jim.  I still kind of shocked right now, to be honest.  I read many of the discussions on this page including all of the information about separation on this page and on the boot camp page.  I mailed a letter today that requested Michael sign a HIPPA form.  I have not called legal yet or the separation administration office.  I am hoping Michael will call tomorrow so I can get a little more information from him.  Do you recommend I call either one of them to get more information?  Thanks again, Robin
