Hello Mr. Garza,  Thanks for welcoming me to the site. I did not come from a military family either. I was a little nervous, but mostly excited for them. As you can see from my first post. My expectations of what they could do was FAR exceeded. 

Thanks again! Best,Eric

Thanks for the warm welcome Jim.  My son just started OCS school in Newport this week.  We are trying to figure out what his class number he is in so we can write him a few letters while he is in OCS.

"Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com Chris! 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"

Thank you for approving my membership to NavyDads.

My daughter is in active duty and somewhere in the South China Sea( as what you said, no idea what to expect and always no info what the mission and always I am  the last to know)

"I was a little scared and worried for him."-- that a little bit underrated--- I am always scared, worried, sleepless nites and anxiety.

Oh well, I guess I have to get use to it!!

Thanks and have a good day-Chris

Thank you Jim, looking forward to learning from your website, I’m not a veteran, but real proud of my son as he begins his Naval service.

Thanks Jim! My family isn't from a military background besides my grandfather's and an uncle. So basically going in blind. He left for boot camp June 16th. Have found alot of useful information on the site so far.

Thanks Jim, Funny story... my son received a letter last week from his 8th Grade self addressed to his graduating Senior self. In it he challenges himself to follow through with his commitment to joining the Navy. Pretty special to see that at 14 years old he was already focused on the Navy and serving our country.

Military service skipped our generation, but my wife and I are so proud of him.

Best - Bob

Yes that was something wasn't it and they were spot right on they hit that right on the nail head he said the Seas could be 15 ft high and that ship doesn't move but when that missile comes out of the ship the whole thing vibrates violently Like An Earthquake

Thank you I appreciate that Jim when my son enlisted I was happy cuz there was nothing out here for him in our region northeastern Pennsylvania and he has great knowledge of computers he did his first four years on the USS Lake Erie and he was on the ship when they shut down the satellite enter in space he said it was the best bullet he ever shot LOL I hope to have a good experience on this site can you definitely have started off right for me
