Steve, I'm still trying to find my way around this great websight. Thanks for the congrates on my son's graduation. He is indeed a new Seabee! He was supposed to start school yesterday but instead they are waiting on Isaac. What a memorable way to spend his 19th birthday and start Seabee school!
His mother and I just worry. I know his training was intense and he says not worry
that he is with a great team but we do. The military is so different than when I was in, 1968
Sorry , I was army and don't quite understand the navy. We are so proud of our son. Again thank you
For the reply. We are just a couple of worry-warts from upstate NY.
Bravo Steve...great news! We have a member whose son is currently in Af'stan and feeling pretty helpless...perhaps you would be willing to touch base with him and answer some of his questions:http://www.navydads.com/profile/DaleEBort?xg_source=activity
god bless your son and thank him for me and mine
Play the following video for a brief introduction to NavyDads.com
As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. Read through this post as it will do a lot to give you some understanding about what your sailor is learning and why. And be sure to check out the videos available in the Bootcamp Group as well.
As PIR draws closer, be sure to spend some time going through the PIR-Tips, Hints and Helps group- we’ve tried to assemble some tips and suggestions to make your sailor's PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul
I would like to take this time to point you in some of the right directions. For starters if you haven't had the time take a look at the right side of any page you click on. There you will find some useful information for you. The links under the about this site will help you with how this site got started, navigation, PIR, About us, community guidelines and some links to some of the groups that beginners with a lot of questions will find very useful.
First and foremost though we are all here for the same reason. We are curious about what our young sailors are getting into and for more information about the rate or job that they will be doing for the next 4-6 yrs of their lives. I know when I first got here I had lots of questions and there y alsowas not a lot of people on this site but they all were either going through the same thing or had been through it and had sailors out in the fleet. Now this site has grown to over 2000 members, Dads, Moms,Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, sisters, brothers,girlfriends and boyfriends. Don't be afraid to ask questions of members in here because somewhere along the way we have all had the same questions and asked . There are a lot of knowledgeable people on this site with various years of experience in the NAVY either on their own account or through their Sailors.
Again welcome aboard and BRAVO ZULU to you and your son Andrew on his enlistment and please thank him for me for making the choice to defend the freedoms that my family, this country and I have and enjoy. Thank you Steve for your service to this country also.
