A Great Day

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

Yesterday was one of my proudest moments to this date.. My daughter left for Great Lakes. I was there for the final swearing in and was able to spend pretty much the whole day with her untill her flight took her away. I must thank the volunteers with the USO for making my day much more enjoyable. They made me feel even more proud of my daughter than I already was.. Just a simple "Thank You for serving our country" kinda hit home. And put it all in…

Yes she is still on the USS Sullivans. She is doing good. Studying to be the "Oil King/Queen". Actually I get to see her tomorrow and into next week as she leaves for her second deployment soon. So I am looking forward to that time.

     Haven't seen you on in a while. Figured I would drop you a line and ask you how Corinne is doing and how she is enjoying her rate in the Navy. I just a week and a half ago left my second SR at the local MEPS staion and am patiently awaiting his form letter so that we can get his address and start writting to him.

Laron - thanks, i got the word. i was "monitoring" the navyformom's website, they seem to have a lot more chatter, and saw the announcements come across. Christina called her mom, but she had gone out and left her cell phone home so got the message when she returned. i haven't heard it yet, but i think the gist of it was what stuff she wanted us to bring back for her. lol! i was hoping she would try me at work, but no such luck.
i saw from your wife's comments that you guys decided against the ramada. i'm going to stick with it. hopefully we'll both be happy where we stay.

Laron - our last letter from Christina was dated almost two weeks ago. hopefully, like you say, no news is good news. thanks for bring us up to date. we will pray that Corinne will "sail" through the rest.

Laron - well that, hate to use the term, sucks about everyone being penalized, but i guess it's gotta be. (i always hated that in grade school when the teacher did that!) hopefully someone will get "squared away" (ie: grow up) before it's over. i know Christina has expressed some concern about the tests, but i'm sure they will do ok. let's face it, the vast majority pass or the system would break down. that would be a real bummer for anyone kept back two weeks though.

Laron - yes, but we will probably get there late. we are flying in to milwaukee, landing after 4:00. then it's get the car and an hour plus drive. we've gotten five letters so far and one call, which i wasn't around to take but my wife got to talk to her. yep, looking forward to more every day!

Laron - just got another letter from Christina today. she says she not only knows Corrine, but they have become good friends and since both will be attending a-school at gl, plan on hanging out together. cool!

Laron, Welcome Aboard!

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. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your daughters journey in the Navy. Thank Corinne for her service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.

So glad to see that you have joined us here at I have talked with your daughter Corinne on here a couple of times through a blog that she posted on here. She seems to be a driven young lady that is worried that her parents think she has made the biggest mistake in her life. I tried to relay some of the feelings that my wife and I had when our oldest son Trevor joined the Navy 2 yrs ago, now just 2 weeks ago my Younger Son went and signed himself into the DEP program and has gotten a ship date for next July. This will put both of my Children into the Navy and serving thier country.
I know there are alot of questions that you may have and things that you are curious about. Might I be the first to say that anytime you have any questions send me a message and as soon as I get to it i will get back to you and either help you with the answer or try to point you into the right direction for you to find the answers that you want. I commend you and your wife for raising such a fine young lady and wish you all the best on Corinne and your journey into the Navy and give you all a big BRAVO ZULU.
