I believe that is Class 285 if I am not mistaken. I have heard some that are going to visit. There will be a private party at the end and only the guys, Instructors and special guess will attend. No family or friends. Most of the time they will have a get-to-together later at a bar or someplace. Since this a time for the guys to remember and tell stories on each other and let of steam not many adults attend, they let the guy have a party. I know of one class that ask that the party also be private. They will party all weekend and some will plan a party of family member the next day after they wake up. You just have to check with your guy as to the plans and if he expect or really want family at all the events.
Mark not sure what you are talking about that is going on at the end of March. Is something going on in Great Lakes or Coronado? My GS comes off deployment in about a month, he will need time to wind down and be with his wife before we try to see him.
Your last name is listed and your sons first name is listed in your profile. If he is going into the Special Ops or SEAL Community this is not allow per Navy OPSEC. If he goes to BUDS training he Instructor will beat him and his class till things change. I can send you a file I received from the Navy if you want. This is something all social network adhere to. If you have more questions please let me know.

When my son first enlisted in the Navy I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to his future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads but found out 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 hope this site will benefit fathers that follow 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.
