Hi Bradley, your son needs to get with his recruiter or go online to nrotc.navy.mil and fill out an application as soon as possable.

Bradley, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you have joined us. I see that you have joined a group. Check out some of the other groups and some of the other discussions that are going on. This site is for you to use and enjoy. We love to talk about our sailors around here and we have been known to brag on them a little. We are also here to support and encourage each other. After all we are all in this together. I have two sons and they are both in the military. My youngest joined the Air Force 5 years ago. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. Please thank Harrison for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man.
Terry

Welcome to NavyDads Bradley! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun and useful as I have. Explore and make some friends, add your comments to a discussion or two, read the postings in the various groups-- even start one or two. I have! If you have any questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...ask! I'm sure someone here will have the answer or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm lucky enough to have two sailors- my son Eric just returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Bradley this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Harrison is doing!

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. Thanks to one of our members we have two excellent videos that you can access from the Video area on the NavyDads.com main page: New Bootcamp 1 of 2 and New Bootcamp 2 of 2. These videos will answer many of your questions and concerns and will give you a better understanding of how the United States Navy transforms our children into sailors!

Be sure to spend some time in the Bootcamp group- there are many questions and answers available to help you understand what your sailor is going through. And as PIR draws closer, be sure to spend some time going through the PIR-Tips, Hints and Helps group- we’ve tried to assemble some tips and suggestions to make your sailor's PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul

We have a group on here ( ask a recruiter ) along with many retired Navy Sailors. You might want to ask some of your questions in the recruiter group. It takes a bit for them to get on and answer but are a big help. I'm sure they can point you in the right direction. Also start a discussion on what your looking for. We have great members with unlimited knowledge. I'm glad you found us, I'm sure this site will be very helpful. Also, always feel free to pick my brain. I'll do my best to help.

I didn't me Harrison but your second son. I might be looking at the same situation as you with my oldest serving now and his two younger brothers 15 & 12, could possibly follow him.

Your welcome Bradley. If you seek an answer, just ask. Someone here will know the answer or the right direction to look. Tell Harrison he is making the right choice by taking NROTC. The better he is prepared for boot camp, the easier it will be.

Bradley I've also heard of the Navy putting a freeze on re-enlistment bonuses and a freeze on the number of female recruits. I believe freezing something with the Navy is common. Hope this helps some.

Sorry, not much Bradley. I guess the economy is affecting us all. Click here to see what Navytimes says about the freeze.

Bradley, Welcome Aboard! My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my wife and I couldn't be prouder of him. I found navyformoms in searching for answers to my son's future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads like n4m's but I was wrong. So I started this site so us dads would also have a place to call home. I'm new at this and I hope this site will benefit fathers that come behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your sailor. I'm so glad to find out their are so many proud Navy Dads just like myself. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Navy. Thank Harrison for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
Sincerely, EG
