Corky, We received an email from Brad and yes he said they are now in Singapore. Brad's duties are airplane ordinance and hangar bay mechanics - primarily maintaining the plane elevators as far as I understand. Seems to like it so far. As for AZ, I'm from Phoenix and my wife was originally from Yuma, but grew up in Bagdad (a copper mining town outside of Prescott). Sill have a lot of family in the Chandler, Mesa and Cottonwood areas.
Hi Corky. I just joined the site and the Nimitz group last night. My son reported to the Nimitz in June. This is his first deployment. Anyway, I was looking at the profiles of the other group members and noticed where you're from. I know the area. We're in Michigan, but my wife and I were both born and raised in AZ. Small world!
no still no phone call. Iam bringing my 12 soon to be 13 yr old daughter. My husband (Coty's step dad) is staying home with his 16 yr old daughter and the 3 dogs. Coty's birth dad and I driving up together though.
Corky, Welcome Aboard!. 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 daughter for her service for me and thanks again for joining. Sincerely, EG
Welcome to NavyDads Corky! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun and useful as I have. Explore and make some friends, add your comments to a discussion or two, read the postings in the various groups-- even start one or two. I have! If you have any questions or concerns about your sailor and what she is going through...ask! I'm sure someone here will have the answer or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm lucky enough to have two sailors- my son Eric is a month into a seven-month deployment on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat just returned from her seven-month deployment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Corky this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Katie is doing!
Be sure to spend some time in the Bootcamp group- there are many questions and answers available to help you understand what your sailor is going through. And 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 sailors PIR more enjoyable.
And when you get a chance, please check out the Daughters and their Dads group- this is a great place to talk about and to brag about our girls!
