Welcome to NavyDads ctyankee! 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 he 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 just returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And ctyankee this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how michael is doing! And stop by the NavyDads offical store- Navyoutfitters.com. Show your support for NavyDads by wearing the latest in NavyDads attire. Best Regards- Paul
Thanks for the warning. As you've probably seen, we do have a couple of groups to chat politics in. We believe that politics are relevant to our Sailors, so thats why we have them. The groups are monitored and not for bashing each other but to debate politics like grow ups. The common goal with all of our Sailors is no matter their race, religion, political belief, etc. they are as one ( United States Navy! ) and have the same Commander in Chief. Good or Bad!
I truly hope you benefit from this site and show off your Sailor in the process. Whether it's venting about our political system or bragging about what your Sailor is doing. We give our members that right on ND's. We are all in this journey together to learn from one another and to help when we can.
Again, Welcome! to your new Navy family and hope to see in pages.
My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted 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. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Navy. Thank Michael for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
