Off to RTC Great Lakes

my Son, Dallas just left for basic training. He is traveling from Shreveport, La. He is scheduled to land at O.Hare around 1900hrs. I am having a harder time than I thought with letting him go! I'm not going to lie to you, when I got home from the airport I broke down. I know it is going to get better, but I don't like this feeling. " I'm a grown man with 29 yrs of military, i''m not supposed to feel like this!" I was filled with all of these emotions. Thinking about all the missed time with my… Continue

Intel dads

Are there any future or present Intel dads here? Can you give me any advice for my Son Dallas. He ships out for Boot Camp on 1 Dec. He isn't getting ahead of himself. He is curious as to what to expect when he gets to Damneck Va.? Of all of the intel rates what is the best one to get into and ones to stay away from? I have told him one step at a time by get to basic training, getting through basic training, and then on to A school. He understands this, but none the less, curious as I would be… Continue

Getting cold feet

How many parents here have had children get "cold feet" or second thoughts before shipping out to basic training. What did you say or do to change his or her mind? So far so good, but my Son Dallas has until Dec 01 2015 to ship out.

Welcome to Todd! 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 (AM2) was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, and is attached to VAW-125, and back on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. 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!

If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going sure to post them! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the direction to find out. And Todd this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how your son is doing! Please remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors and the fleet in mind. On the right or starboard side of every NavyDads page is an area we call Key Information. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link for some guidelines as to what we should not talk about in a public forum like

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what Dallas 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 and as PIR nears be sure to spend time in the PIR group for hints and helps!

Best Regards- Paul
