"Welcome aboard to Chris! When my son first enlisted, I was a little scared and worried for him. Not coming from a military family at all, I had no idea what to expect"

Thank you for approving my membership to NavyDads.

My daughter is in active duty and somewhere in the South China Sea( as what you said, no idea what to expect and always no info what the mission and always I am  the last to know)

"I was a little scared and worried for him."-- that a little bit underrated--- I am always scared, worried, sleepless nites and anxiety.

Oh well, I guess I have to get use to it!!

Thanks and have a good day-Chris

Thanks Jim! My family isn't from a military background besides my grandfather's and an uncle. So basically going in blind. He left for boot camp June 16th. Have found alot of useful information on the site so far.

Thanks Jim, Funny story... my son received a letter last week from his 8th Grade self addressed to his graduating Senior self. In it he challenges himself to follow through with his commitment to joining the Navy. Pretty special to see that at 14 years old he was already focused on the Navy and serving our country.

Military service skipped our generation, but my wife and I are so proud of him.

Best - Bob

Yes that was something wasn't it and they were spot right on they hit that right on the nail head he said the Seas could be 15 ft high and that ship doesn't move but when that missile comes out of the ship the whole thing vibrates violently Like An Earthquake

Thank you for your son's service. My son graduates from boot camp on April 1, 2022; the wife and I are excited and proud of him.

Thank you for allowing me to join. I have read so much in just the last 24 hours, and it answered a lot of my questions just reading on this site.

Thank you so much for such a warm welcome! I absolutely understand the pride you feel for your son. We have no prior military background before our son enlisted as well. And we agree that it was a life-altering, amazing decision that he made. We are so proud. Thank you for accepting me into your group.

Thanks Jim. Appreciate the warm welcome. I too am new to military life--my daughter is our family's first soldier of any sort for a couple of generations (she just graduated from RTC and started A school in Charleston--nuke!). Looking forward to learning all about her journey.

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.
