Describe A Little About Yourself:
Father of five children, ages from twenty-seven to four years old. Three boys and two girls. Professional driver since the fall of 2003. Pull a set of ''wiggle wagons''. In most cases. Married to second wife Jocelyn who is a great lady. Proud of my eldest in OCS. Come from a great military family. My grandfather, and three great uncles are in the Santa Fe National Cemetery. And two uncles who served in the Navy. My father was drafted for Vietnam but during his physical exam he was found with cancer in his knee. So needless to say he did not make the cut.

We are very excited to make the trip to the NE to see our son make the ceremony.

Welcome to Stephen! 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 (AM1) 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"), is stationed at Iwakuni, Japan and is currently deployed as part of Carrier Strike Group 5 on the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76). 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!

We do have an OCS group you should be sure to join. Lots of others in there that already have some experience with their children in OCS.

Welcome aboard to Stephen! 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
