Welcome to Margaret ! 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, and is now attached to VAW-125 ("The Tigertails"). 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 were around in those early days, it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!

I'm sure you'll find as useful, educational and informative as I have over the past few years. Click How To Get Started for a guide on getting going in your experience! I hope you take the time to explore the site and make some new friends. Read the discussions and add your comments. Browse through the postings in the various groups or start a new one. If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailors and what they are going sure to post them! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the direction to find out. And Margaret this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how Jerm and Troy are doing! Please remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors and the fleet in mind. On the right or starboard side of every NavyDads page is an area we call Key Information. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link for some guidelines as to what we should not talk about in a public forum like

Welcome aboard to Margaret! 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

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

Not trying to take anything away from Navy Dads but I just had a conversation with John Gillette at Young & Rubicam regarding the Navy for Mom's website that has been down for almost a week now.

Back in April they were awarded a 5 year, $457mill contract with the Navy to handle their global advertising (taking over the contract from Campbell Ewald). One of those items is the N4M website.....The problem right now is with Ning (outsourced in India). For some reason Ning archived the website and now Y&R is trying to get them to unarchive it. He said the Naval Recruiting Command is also very upset with the situation. It is a priority for them right now and they are doing everything they can to resolve the issue ASAP. I told him there's a bunch of unhappy Navy momma's out there and he said he understands the urgency. He'll keep me posted. (and for the record he was very nice and understanding!)
