Paul, I noticed your question about SEAL graduation and have spent the last hour trying to find you something. My best advice is to write or talk to your sailor and he should be able to get you the best information. 

From what I could find, it looks like that it's common for families and friends to attend the ceremony. 

I wish I could give you more, but like Paul said, our SEAL dad passed away a while ago. His grandson was a SEAL and knew all there was to know. We miss Calvin very much. He was a good asset and a good friend. 

Be sure to check out the SEAL groups we have here and maybe someone can help you more.

Happy hunting!

Welcome to NavyDads Paul ! 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 daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist (MC3). My son Eric (AM1) did two cruises on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, was attached to VAW-125 ("The Tigertails") stationed at Iwakuni, Japan, and is currenlty stationed in Pensacola where he is an instructor in A-School. If NavyDads 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 NavyDads 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 NavyDads experience!

If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...be 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 Paul this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how your son Robert is doing! 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 NavyDads.


Best Regards- Paul
