Jim,

Thank you for reaching out, it's been lonely here with my son away at Basic Training. I am grateful and somewhat overwhelmed by the support that I have received in just my few short days of signing up. I'm so happy that I did. I feel like that I have new family members. Thank you for your words in easing me into my new family.

Bob Crawford

Thank you Jim.  Not just getting started as we've been through PIR, A School and now my son is in his Reserve capacity, resuming college next week.  He will have a two-week deployment in a while and then a longer one later on.  As a Seabee, he's land-based.

Appreciate the welcome.

Thank you and im.looking forward to keeping up with him and enjoying the experience

Thanks Jim, 

I am happy to join this group.  I am a proud Navy Veteran and Gullf War Veteran, so when my baby girl took an interest in Navy JROTC 5 years ago, I was excited.  She embraced and excelled in this program over 4 years in high school, and has been Pro Navy since she started.  The fact that she chose to follow in my foot steps is the greatest honor to me as a parent.  She enlisted early in her senior year of high school, and left for basic training on June 19th.  She will PIR on August 16th, and I am one proud Dad.  I'm sure Great Lakes will look very different than it did when I was first there some 36 years ago, but I can't wait to go back.  My son also serves, but he is in the Army National Guard, and is also a police officer, so the military pride runs deep in our family. All of our young men and women in the Armed Forces make great sacrifices for the freedoms we enjoy and too often take for granted.  I am proud of, and thankful to each and every one that serves.

Thank you! I’m nervous for my son, but am sure he’ll do great. My father was also Navy, a hospital corpsman during the Vietnam era, serving in the Mediterranean. Long family line of service members in the military, reaching back to the revolutionary war.

Thank you, Jim.  I still kind of shocked right now, to be honest.  I read many of the discussions on this page including all of the information about separation on this page and on the boot camp page.  I mailed a letter today that requested Michael sign a HIPPA form.  I have not called legal yet or the separation administration office.  I am hoping Michael will call tomorrow so I can get a little more information from him.  Do you recommend I call either one of them to get more information?  Thanks again, Robin

Thank you, Jim. I was beaming with pride when he made his decision to join, and only got nervous about a week before he shipped off. The not knowing how he is doing is unsettling, but we have to let them go sooner or later. Taking it one day at a time.

Thank you very much for your warm welcome.  Speaking of past lives; I too had a brush with the Marines back in the Vietnam era.  My draft number was  at the top of the list & I thought  don't just get drafted, join an outfit  you want to be in.  I passed the Marine tests (height by 1/2 inch) and was all set to report the next week.  Then they stopped the draft & i yielded to the chorus of ALL of my friends urging me not to become a monster., so I did not report.  Regret that now.

I am very proud of my son and the choices he's making.  Week before shipping, he was nervous/scared, but knew that it was the right path at the right time, so went ahead.

He is in Dicv 934 and from what I hear that may mean that he may not march in at graduation..   Any clue about that?

This morning our son phoned home to wish his mother a happy birthday. In our brief conversation he mentioned a Tiger Cruise coming up for the Stennis (CVN-74), and I'd sure like to know more about that.
