Thank you for welcoming me .. I have a lot to learn and I'm eager to do so.

Thank you for the warm welcome Jim. Our son left for bootcamp early Sept of last year.  Is now in Goose Cr, SC.   Just wanting to Try to understand what he is going through.  Though no visits because of Covid, have sensed a big, positive change in him on our periodic phone chats.  Thanks for making this group.

Thank you for the add to this great resource. As of right now it's T-minus 3 1/2 days until I take him up to the hotel and then his flight out to RTC is on Thursday. So many emotions for sure, I appreciate the resources this site and the Facebook group offers. I hope to learn from all of you. My dad was 22 years active in the Navy on Heavy Cruisers and Submarines, but I was just born about 2 years before he retired. Im definitely excited for my son, although the reality is starting to hit him here leading up to it and he's definitely nervous because of the unknown aspect. I have full confidence in him; hopefully his RTC experience will help him gain some of that confidence for himself too.

Thanks for the welcome , Jim!

Our son has wanted to be an electrician since Jr. High. When it became apparent that the IBEW was not going to accept applications for 2021 he asked how he was going to get training and have job security. "Job security" from an 18yo?!

Then he discovered the SeaBees. When that was not likely to happen because there were no open positions for the CE ratings, he opted for AE/CF in the "regular" Navy. 

We are very proud of this young man. He is very excited and clearly walks prouder since enlisting. He ships out this November.

Go Navy!

Thanks so much Jim. I am sure he made a great decision. I am very proud of him and really hope it's a good fit for him. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm sure I'll have several questions as he gets closer to his ship date of 9/1. Thanks again!

Thank you for the welcome, Jim!  I look forward to taking a more thorough look around.

Thanks Jim for the reply.. Yes, our Son is new to military and we are very hopeful he will adapt ok... I must admit it's been harder on my old butt than I thought it would be, but at my age (66) I'm a big boy now and will adjust. Ryan and I are very close.  God Speed,  jack
