Thank you for the add! My son just left on Tue morning for RTC and there's some adjustment taking place in my life with the hole he's left. Super proud of him but miss him dearly. I was Navy from 1995-2001 and although I didn't "force his hand" towards the Navy, I'm really glad he chose that route; will make it easier to understand and swap sea stories!

Thanks for the warm welcome Jim.  My son just started OCS school in Newport this week.  We are trying to figure out what his class number he is in so we can write him a few letters while he is in OCS.

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

Thank you Jim, looking forward to learning from your website, I’m not a veteran, but real proud of my son as he begins his Naval service.

@Jim, Happy Father's Day as well!

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
