Thank you Paul. I look forward to utilizing the many resources of the NavyDads site. I am like all Navy Dads, so proud of my son and the incredible hard work he has put into getting to this point in his career. He is still a young pup in terms of his overall Navy career but growing stronger everyday. He survived BUD's so he is well on his way! I am so proud of him.
Paul thanks for the kind note. As an old Soldier and son of a CPO I am very proud of the decision my son made to join the Navy. I think you and the folks involved with this site have done a great job. It has been invaluable in "explaining" things to my Army wife. I hope that I can be value added in the future.
Thank you,Paul. My husband just called to say he had just gotten off the phone with our daughter. She needed contact info for an additional security reference....does this need indicate an issue? My husband says no....that she sounded great....but was to no avail....I'll be fretting till she's settled...
Thank you for the warm welcome and words of encouragement. Thank you for hosting yet another Navy for Moms refugee. I have found some great groups in the last few days, this one included and I am completely humbled by the "Take this person under our wing" feeling I get every time I join one of these Navy groups. I greatly appreciate that. Thank you!
Thank you Paul. I'm here in case any of the moms from my daughters group are looking for information about what happened to the N4Ms site. I have been in contact with B'sNukemom&dad and she has been keeping me up to date. I so appreciate you opening your NavyDads group to us wondering moms out there treading water!!!!!!
Thank you Paul, Its been hard for me to not have her around heck I would even take her yelling at me right now. I an the youngest of 5 and my oldest brother is a retired Army Sgt Major. And I have another brother who was in the Air Force. So I have had the chance to experience the lingo and expectations its just harder when it is your own. I tried to join back in the 80's and failed the physical because I have flat feet. I wanted to go in the Air Force I got my pilots license in 86 and wanted to learn how to fly a helicopter. Dreams dashed on that one but I am glad it worked out like that because I would have never met my children's mother. God has a plan and so I am just following. Anyway thank you again.
I can tell you some generic stuff about Japan. It is amazing. Get off base as often as possible, utilize MWR tours and events. Get a civilian passport for leisure travel opportunities. The food is outstanding, try everything.
His sponsor should fill him in on the phone stuff, ours do not work there. Skype will be your friend.
I miss Japan very much, coming from a military family, living in one place in Yokosuka for so many years made it feel like home to me.
Japan ... I was stationed in Yokosuka, and so was my husband. I was there for a total of 12 years, a couple tours of my own, and then a couple as a dependent spouse. Iwakuni is further south, near Hiroshima. I've never visited the base. My father was stationed there in the 50s, during Korea. I don't have many specific answers about that area, other than nearby Miyajima is not to be missed.
I'm proud to be aboard Navy Dads. I truly appreciate the add to this site. I have found some really great info so far and I know I will be on here quite often. I am enjoying the reading. My baby girl's ship date is 11 July 2017. I am very proud of her decision to serve.
Do you have any suggestions as to how we can get the N4M site back up & running? Of course I'm hoping today is just a temporary problem but I am worried it could be more serious. And I can't get any response from the ad agency on file or ning :(
