Elmo, thanks for the kind words and introductory message.  I've invested a great deal into my daughter and it was difficult handing her off to the Navy.  Her PIR is at the end of January and then she's off to language school in Monterey for CTI training. The information found at "Navy for Dad's" and words by you and others has been comforting to me.

Thanks everyone, it's been an adjustment for my family and I having a sailor in the family.  When I hear friends talk about sending their kids off to college and how tough that is I think to myself, "They don't know n'thing"  Dropping my son off at the recruiting station and having to turn my back and walk away, not knowing when I'd hear from him again, was probably the hardest thing I have done since he was born.  

But it's all good, he's home on leave for a week and soon will be off to the fleet on a guided missile destroyer

Hi, all

This is my first post here, and I'm glad I found you guys. I may or may not have met one of your sons through my son. But all of the Navy personal have been very friendly and professional. I am concerned due to recent events for the safety and security of all our Military personal including my son.

I cannot mention which areas are of concern but in time I will know who and where I can bring up my concerns. Are there others that feel certain things need to be looked at or changed to make our guys safer overall?

My son Graduated Buds on 10/6/2014 and is in Alaska now and returning to Coronado on 11/26 will be graduating 6/12 /2015 is there any other fathers  that have your son graduating then?

Thanks for the comment. Just realized I put the wrong information. Lucas is scheduled to serve as an AT.

Right now I am waiting on the "I'm a sailor call". We are scheduled to graduate Nov. 21st. We can't wait to watch him walk.

I knew that you were always around.  We are well on this home front. Adam is still with us Andrew has transitioned to shore duty at NAS Whidbey Island. Alyssa is with VFA 34 at NAS Oceana.  All are healthy. working through life.

Thank you for making this happen. Having this access makes me feel a part of a network of Dads and Families. Learning everyday the Navy Way. Trying to figure out ABH A school graduation at NAS Pensacola. I've read six weeks and my son says 48 days not counting weekends and holidays. I heard from other Dads also not counting indoctrination week and they say they heard from past A school Dads that there was "a lot of down time" not counted in the 48 days. Trying to make plans to attend because I live 9,000 miles away in the middle of nowhere with only two flights a week off the island that are always booked; and you can't hold the seat because because it costs $150 penalty to change per flight and it takes four flights to NAS Pensacola. And more importantly, my employer requires 45 days notice to process leave requests. Thank you.

I appreciate the family that we all share, all of our KIDS are the Best of the Best. Not many are willing to sacrifice the civilian life we enjoy in this country! Anyone have a Kid in Ship 12/ Div 311? That's my Daughters  unit. Hope all's going well with your Loved One!! Semper-Fi from an OLD Jarhed
