Thanks Tim for your well wishes as I come on board. I look forward to interacting with this resource as my son Benjamin moves through SQT and into the Teams.
This site actually makes me feel closer to Evan even though he is in GL.
I am glad he went through the DEP program so we could be mentally prepared for his departure.
We received our "phone call" at around 8:55pm PST on Wednesday night and are relieved he made it ok.
Looking forward to future posts on this site.
Thanks once again for this site. You are doing many parents a great service and deserve a big shoutout!

Thank you. Joshua has been in for almost 10 years. I did not find Navy Dads until a few days ago while looking for information on Tiger Cruise. I hope to be on the Teddy Roosevelt later this year.
He is a P 3 pilot with several tours of Iraq, a former flight instructor and now a catapult officer on the Roosevelt.
As with everyone on the site, I could not be prouder!
When he was enlisted as an Ensign, I wrote a prayer for him that might be of interest to some other family members. I will try to find it and put it on the site.
Thanks for the welcome message. This is all so overwhelming but I'm looking forward to discovering more.
Thanks for the add & welcome. My daughter joined the Army in 2000 and left in 2002 on a med discharge, only to enlist in the Navy a couple years later. She made Chief in 2011 after being in only 7 years. While that is not a record, it is rapid and commendable. Currently stationed on the Michael Murphy, she started on the McFaul so she is used to being on a destroyer. At this moment I am puppy sitting her three dogs at her house on Oahu (it's a tough job, but someone has to do it) while she is in a 3 week training program state side. Sam (my kid) is the first one but not the last one of her family generation to be in the Navy. I have a nephew in Norfolk as well.
My history... having graduated an all boys Catholic School in 1976, only one member of my class joined the military. He went into the USMC like his father, his g'father, and all the males in his family throughout time. If you can recall, 1976 was a time of major upheaval in the military. The Viet Nam war had just ended, my age group does not have draft numbers, and Pres Ford started the all volunteer military. They were trying to get rid of their over abundance of personnel at that time. I went to college and afterwards became a Deputy Sheriff in SW Florida, where I still live with my wife of 27 years. I am retired with 29 years of service and currently work as a driver for a private ambulance company. Cheers
