think somebeat you to the first's somewhere on the site. Everyone is real good on this site about speading info that shouldn't be spread and haven't seen anyone press the issue with deployemnts and the like. Pre-BUDS, SEALs, and crytpo folk are real good about not using last names and the like so the site polices itself. Since we have no ties whatsoever to the Navy or military we've self-policed through common sense what should go on here and not.

yeah...the 2000 character thing has been a pain in the @*$ thing to do: if you go down the page you can post a real limit here on size or content...I've found myself doing that all the time anymore. Also can be done from the upper right part of the'll see a box called QUICK ADD...if you click the check boxyou get a series of choices and you can add a discssion or a multitude of other things easily. If I get a chacne I'll look at the other site, but it isn't organized the best and it's easy to "lost".....

Edward, Welcome Aboard!

My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted 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 Sam for his service for me and yours as well. Thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, EG

Welcome to NavyDads Edward! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun, useful, and educational as I have. Explore the site 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 certainly 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 in the family - my son Eric (AM3) recently returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Edward this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Sam is doing! We do ask that you remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors in mind at all times. On the right side of every NavyDads page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link and the NavyDads Guidelines link. And stop by the NavyDads offical store- Show your support for NavyDads by wearing the latest in NavyDads attire. Best Regards- Paul


NavyDads mission is to Provide Support, Encouragement, and Knowledge to Sailors and their Families throughout their Journey together in the United States Navy.
