Describe A Little About Yourself:
Single and proud father of my Son Nick, who is currently serving aboard the USS Mahan DDG72, on his second deployment and my daughter and her fiance who live in Florida, who ared getting married next summer. I play in a local classic and southern rock band, Southern Spirits. I never served our country in the armed forces, but I am a retired police officer. I love football, music and my kids and I thank everyone who has made the decision to serve our country!
What Brought You To This Site:
My son is currently serving
What Were Your Feelings When Your Sailor Joined The Navy:
It was a combination of pride and sadness. Of course like any parent, you hate to see your kids leave the nest. But, when I think of what he is doing and the opportunities he will have, it made me feel good to know that he will have these opportunities. And Nick's achievements to date have made me a typical proud father!

Welcome to NavyDads John! 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 is almost half-way into a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat just returned from her seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And John this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Nick is doing! Best Regards- Paul
John, Welcome Aboard! 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 your son for his service for me . Thanks again for joining. Sincerely, EG
