Our journey

Thank you all for welcoming me. I will share a bit of our story. My son Tyler was struggling in our public high school. Failing many classes. Always did great on tests. Everything else seemed unimportant to him. We tried many ways to motivate him, all unsuccessful. We found Lincoln's Challenge Academy. A military school sponsored by the national guard. It is here ho found his calling. Earning many honors, participating in extracurriculars, and graduating 3rd in his class. Part of the program… Continue

Welcome to NavyDads.com Chad ! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM2) was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, was attached to VAW-125, and just transfered to VRC-40 ("Rawhides"). My daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist(MC3). If NavyDads.com were around in those early days, it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!

We are all here to help....and we ALL understand! Learn as much as you can. Don't hesitate to reach out whenever you need to. I wish Tyler the best of luck!

Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com Chad! 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. What I found out was that he had made the most mature decision of his life! I found lots of answers to my questions right here on NavyDads.com.

My son Stephen was an AWO2 in the P-3 community. However, after 6 years of service, he was medically discharged in July of 2014. We are proud of our son and his service to our country.

Join us on Facebook as well!

Best Regards- Jim
