Navy Dads

We got a call from our SR John today.  Ship 3 Div 370- It was sure good to hear his voice. Seems to be doing well. He said he is the Master at Arms "currently". Sounds like fun. He gets to yell but said yelling at bootcamp is the norm so it does not seem odd. He said about 15 recruits have had wisdom teeth removed so far and he should next week. They are on day 2-5 as of today. They had their first academic test this week. He thought the swim test was very easy. He said they eat well in the galley. The attention to detail is the thing right now. Even a speck of dust warrants a "hit" on inspections.

We also got the 2nd letter from him today. My wife writes John daily so he said it nice to get letters. He said it is sad some recruits have not received a letter. I send the NFL and college scores to him each week which he enjoys and said others like it also to get caught up on their favorite team.

Thanks for the comments Daniel. I am sorry you cannot be at his PIR this week. I know you are proud of him and congratulations on raising a fine young man.

My son, Mike is Master at Arms for his group Ship 3 Div 338 and his mom writes Mike everday and I send him the box scores and NFL updates. His mom and step dad Tim will be at the PIR this Friday. The similarities are a good thing. Congratulations on your sons achievements Rod.
