Well it has been a while but I'm back. My son Wyatt just called from MEPS in Portland Or. and he is now in the delayed entry program for the Navy. He will be on that until November. He wants the Master at Arms job, so he wants to wait for the job to open. If one comes available before November he will go early. We are very proud of him and all the hard work. I will keep you all up to date on whats going on. He's finely on his way.
Take care and be safe.

The response to this was great. I never expected to have a welcome like this.
My son Wyatt is still in the very early stages of entering the Navy. He will go to his physical test and final enlistment next month. He hopes to be headed to bootcamp right after his high school graduation. Im am very proud of him. He was looking at going to the Coast Guard for the last couple of years. One of his football team mates enlisted in the Navy last year and came home a month ago and told Wyatt what…

Hello Chuck: Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. After reading the blog it sounds like our sons arrived at boot camp the same day. I hope they are having fun and adjusting to their new life..
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 was 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 Wyatt 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.

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 fathers that follow behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your Marine. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Marines. Thank Wyatt for his service for me and for yours as well. Thanks again for joining us.
Please feel free to ask question.
Again Welcome and keep us updated of your recruit’s progress.
HooYah US Navy!!!!!!!!!!!
Play the following video for a brief introduction to NavyDads.com. We've some cosmetic changes to the site since this video was made, but nagivation remains the same.
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
