We received a call on 4-Oct-2021 that our Son was promoted to Chief Petty Officer status. He will be in the Navy 17 years this November. This is an answer to prayer and as his parents - we are very proud of his accomplishments. He will receive full rank on 19-Nov-2021.

We had the opportunity to be a part of this cruise: from Honolulu - San Diego - Bremerton, WA. We want to personally thank the Stennis for allowing us this opportunity.
We now fully understand the many functions, operations, and responsibilities they execute daily by living and working alongside our son. As a Navy Dad, it also…Continue

Welcome to Navy Dads, John! You are an "old salt" at this! Congrats to Joshua on picking up. Thank you for your service as well! Please let us know if we can be of any help at all to you and your Family....
Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com John! 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. What I found out was that he had made the most mature decision of his life! I found lots of answers to my questions right here on NavyDads.com.
My son Stephen was an AWO2 in the P-3 community. However, after 6 years of service, he was medically discharged in July of 2014. We are proud of our son and his service to our country.
Join us on Facebook as well!
Once again, welcome to our site and I hope you enjoy your stay here. GO NAVY! HOOYAH!
Best Regards- Jim
Welcome to NavyDads.com John ! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM2) was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, was attached to VAW-125, and just transfered to VRC-40 ("Rawhides"). My daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist(MC3). If NavyDads.com were around in those early days, it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!
