Tom, congrats on your son Collin!! From what I have learn sometime class up can take sometime. However, your son is enjoying every minute of it..well maybe not doing watch..jejeje. Also Pensacola is a good place for "A" school. My regards to you and your son.. Hooyah!
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 Navy family's that follow behind me. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and learn about the Navy. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons decesion in joining the Navy. Thank Collin for his soon to be service for me and thanks again for joining us.

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. Take a few minutes to 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 as they address many of your questions and concerns.
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
There are (on the right side of every page) the about this site listings. this is the best place to start finding out information about what you can and can'tsay about your sailor a far as OPSEC and the security of yours and our sailors. might I suggest you look into the DEP group as this will be where your son starts out at, then onto the bootcamp group. then as your sons P.I.R. tips and hints. Then onto your sons Line of work group then on to the fleet as your son progresses through the ranks.
I hope that you find this site as helpful as I have and don't hesitate to ask questions of me or anyone else in the NAVYDADs family.
I have a son that is 2 years into his first enlistment as an ET with a second son that went just this morning to the recruiters office to set the date for his ASVAB test.
Thank Collin for looking at joining the United States Navy and his future enlistment for me, and congratulations to you for raising a son that is willing to serve this wonderful country so that we can have the freedoms that we enjoy. Bravo Zulu Tim
