Your welcome Tem. Evan is doing good. His ship will port in Hawaii next and then on home back to San Diego. His cruise is finally coming to an end. He wanted in the legal field. Unfortuantly their were no jobs available in that area. He was anxious to enlist and didn't want to wait around hoping on an opening. So he decided to go in as an ABE working on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. He plans to switch rates as soon as possible. He likes it though.

Tem, Paul in now on the USS Abraham Lincoln. I talked with him the other day and he told me he would be in the weapons section. I am not sure what a yeoman will be doing in the weapons section but I guess he will find out and then he will tell me. Yeoman are office type workers, I guess anything that has to do with paperwork.

As for boot camp, my suggestion would be to write your son everyday. Letters from home are like gold. Boot is tough and it is a time of transition and he will need to hear that there is a normal life still out there. He will need all the support you can give. When you write it should be all positive. You also need to be ready for just receiving one letter a week, once he has been there a couple of weeks. You will get a quick phone call when he gets there to let you know he has arrived. Then if his division does well he will be able to make a few more phone calls. You may want to check out the groups “Bootcamp, PIR-Tips, Hint, and Helps” and “Ask A Question”. Read what they are talking about and jump in and ask questions. When one of your children join the military you join too and it can be hard on parents but at this site we are all going through the same thing so we band together and want to help everybody get through this and get help for ourselves.

Tem thanks for the encouragement because I need it. Heather is my niece that my wife and I took in seven years ago. I did not have any kids of my own until Heather and her brother and sister came to live with us. Heather is the youngest and since she has only lived with us seven years I probably have protected her like a seven year old. I know in my heart that the Navy is the best thing for her but I do miss her and worry about her. I hope your son is doing good and maybe we will see our Sailors in the same PIR. Best wishes to your and your family.

Hey Tem, welcome to Navy Dads. My son is with the Delayed Entry Program. I am trying to get his braces off so that he can leave for the Navy. I will keep in touch and this is a great website. Take care and God Bless.

Tem,
Well, as an airdale I will proudly say aviation is the best choice. But that is a very biased if not skewed view of the navy. Aviation has very good advancement, however one thing the Navy can pride itself in is this. We reward those who demonstrate an articulate knowledge of thier rating judged by the Advancement exam. Secondly we advance the most motivated in the rating as seen by thier immediate chain of command based on thier eval and award points for the hard work they show. Based on that they get ranked, and advanced based upon our qouta for the year. PS and CS are very good rates, I tell my guys who join this: "Pick the job that you most see yourself doing for the next few years." And I have yet to see one come back disappointed that they didn't see a job they liked. Jet mechanic (AD), Administraitve Clerk(PS) or Cook(CS) one of them has got to interest him. As far as each one's advancementup to E-5 they are about the same. Performance is the key to success though. I hope that helps him decide, I hate to push someone in a direction they are not interested.

Tem, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you have joined us. I see that you have gotten involved in some discussions. Take a look at some of the groups too. We love talking about our sailors and we are also here to support and encourage each other. After all we are in this together. Ask questions or answer questions this is your site to use and enjoy. I have two sons and they are both in the military. My youngest joined the Air Force over four years ago and my oldest joined the Navy and is in Everett, WA. waiting for the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72 to come back into port. That is where he will be stationed. Please thank Mark for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising such a great son.

Tem thanks for joining. I found navyformoms in searching for answers to my son's future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads like n4m's but 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 I hope this site will benefit fathers that come behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your sailor. I'm so glad to find out their are so many proud navy dads just like myself. Thank your Son for his service for me. Good luck and thanks again for joining. EG
