Thanks to all for the warm welcome. As I become more familiar with the site I hope to take more advantage of the opportunities and become more involved. Actually just heard from Steve this afternoon for the first time since he shipped to SC. He got the box we went with the cell phone and computer, but the mail room can not find the other. Oh well, we all know how that goes. He is doing well, bored to tears and can not wait to start A school next Monday.
Welcome to NavyDads Mike! 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 just returned from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat returned last fall from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Mike this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Steve is doing! And Mike- thank you for your service to our great country. Best Regards- Paul
Mike, welcome to NAVY DAD'S. All of us here are ready and willing to help you with your transition into a naval parent. Please ask all the questions you want. You will find your worries will melt away. Mike is in good hands and I am sure your pride will grow each day as he gets closer to P.I.R.. Please give Mike a big thanks from me and all of the parents in this group. Gary T.
Mike, 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 Steve for his service for me and yours as well. Thanks again for joining us.
