Jim, thank you so much for having me and for this great website.  There's a ton of helpful and supportive information here that I'm soaking in little by little. We're happy to support your work here in any way. Terry

That makes complete sense! Thanks for clearing that up!!!

Thanks for the welcome.  Thus us all new, but I am looking forward to finding out all I can.  My son is in boot camp now.  He has been assigned a division and ship.  If his ship is stationed at a particular port, should I assume that he will stationed there after A school? Just curious what the normal process is. He will be an AE.

Again, thanks for the welcome as we begin this journey.

Thank you guys. I couldn't be prouder of my son than I am now. I just got to speak to him for the first time since he started because his unit pulled a great inspection score and was rewarded with a phone call they thought they had lost. I can hear the struggle in his voice and I wish I could share it with him, but this is his time. I wish covid hadn't spoiled the graduation service, but we'll see him soon enough in A school after boot camp is behind him and he's working to be a nuke. Adversity breeds strength and I can already see that strength growing in him. So glad to be a part of this community that I never really expected to be.

Thank you for your message.  I am not sure if he signed the HIPPA but I will certainly find out.  I know that he does not plan on trying again and just wants home for good.

Thanks for your comments .  If USPS is the only way to send mail,   how do I learn his address?

Thank you sir. My son is an SNA stationed in Kingsville training to fly F/A-18s. He is on schedule to wing in April.

Thank you for the welcome! As we venture into a new chapter for Logan we feel any resources such as this platform will be very useful. Just an FYI Logan has gone through MEPS and is to report to boot camp Feb 15th or March 1st. So proud and excited for him and the opportunity to be apart of the NAVY!

Thank you

Thank you Jim.  I appreciate what you do to keep this site up.

Hi Jim, thank you for writing.

I heard from Paul earlier, and he gave me a couple of links to look around the site with.

I'm still waiting to hear from my daughter, she arrived at RTC on December 2 and I received the 30 second phone call, but have not heard anything since. I've heard the "no news is good news" several times, but a Dad is always going to worry about his daughter.

Thanks again, and Happy New Year!

Thank you for adding me, a proud Navy Mom! For full disclosure, I joined Navy Moms San Diego too ;)) I don’t want to miss anything! Are there any SWCC parents on board?

I haven't been on this site since joining as my wife gets the support she needs from Navy Moms. Our son, Gregory, went thru 2 yrs of extensive training in the nuclear protocol. He was home on leave last week and has been assigned duty on the Eisenhower for eventual deployment sometime and somewhere. He plans to reenlist when the ship sails.

For the other dads here whose children are also sailing somewhere, have them create an email address when they get on board. That way there will be communication between you when they're allowed to do so. Cell phones are not allowed to be used.
