What Is Your Relationship With Your Sailor
Brandon was born on Feb 17 1988. He was suppose to be born on the 14 that would have been a great day for mom, but he was late and it was still a great day. We raised Brandon the best we could , he will look you in the eyes when he talks to you, he has a great since of humor. He likes "what I call stupid humor" comady movies. He laughts at all his dads jokes , he loves his mom. Brandon has one sister her name is Ariiell .Tthey fight like brother and sister and i think Ariell misses him. Brandon built his truck at age 16 it is a 1972 Chevy k20. We took 2 years to build it and Brandon saved up all the money it took to build it. I taught him how to weild on his truck he liked it well enought to become a navy welder. i know Brandon like all those that came before him, will be a great asset to the Navy. I give them a boy I pray they give me back a man.

A Fathers words about his Son.

Rick, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you have joined us. Check out some of the groups and some of the discussions that are going on. This site is for you to use and enjoy. We love to talk about our sailors around here and we have been known to brag on them a little. We are also here to support and encourage each other. After all we are all in this together. I have two sons and they are both in the military. My youngest joined the Air Force 5 years ago. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. Please thank Brandon for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man.

Welcome to NavyDads Rick! 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 Rick this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Brandon is doing!

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. Thanks to one of our members we have two excellent videos that you can access from the Video area on the main page: New Bootcamp 1 of 2 and New Bootcamp 2 of 2. These videos will answer many of your questions and concerns and will give you a better understanding of how the United States Navy transforms our children into sailors!

Be sure to spend some time in the Bootcamp group- there are many questions and answers available to help you understand what your sailor is going through. And as PIR draws closer, be sure to spend some time going through the PIR-Tips, Hints and Helps group- we’ve tried to assemble some tips and suggestions to make your sailor's PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul

Rick, 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 Brandon for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
Sincerely, EG
