What Were Your Feelings When Your Sailor Joined The Navy:
It was a tough decision to make but theres nothing here for our young adults to strive to achieve for themselves so me and my son talked and chose this route and the pretty recruiter helped his decision i think lol.Hes my only son and it was hard to see him go but i knew one day he would be his own man and i hope that i installed some of the things he needs to make the most of anything he attempts in life.
Jordan said in his letter that he would be calling on Thursday. I am hoping to be here. My wife just fell apart reading his letter and I am sure that there will be tears shed by both Jordan and my wife when they hear the others voice. Looking forward to meeting you and all of the other families.
Hello Timothy, Here is all of the information for the meet & greet. Jordan is also reading the bible, it is just amazing the changes that seem to have taken place already! Looking for our next letter also and still waiting for a phone call. Sure hope that I am home when the call comes in.

Hello Timothy it is really nice found someone from the same PIR date and DIV. When my wife and I write to Jordan this evening I will be sure to ask JAG if he has had the pleasure of meeting Nathan. We have resevations at the Ramada Inn for the weekend and my wife wanted me to be sure to let you know that if you are staying elsewhere, that there is a Meet&Greet there on 7/08. If your wife is a member of navyformom.com, you will be able to find discussions there in regards to this. Will keep you up to date.
When my son first enlisted in the Navy I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to his future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads but found out 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 hope this site will benefit fathers that follow 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 Nathan for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
Welcome to NavyDads Timothy! I'm sure you'll NavyDads.com useful, educational and informative. Please explore the site and make some Navy friends, add your comments to a discussion or two, read the postings in the various groups-- even start a few. I certainly have! If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...be sure to post them! I'm sure someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm lucky enough to have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) is stationed on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) just completed her five-year enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Timothy this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and be sure to let us know how Nathan is doing! We do ask that you remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors in mind at all times. On the right side of every NavyDads page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link and the NavyDads Guidelines link.
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. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. Take a few minutes to read through this post as it will do a lot to give you some understanding about what your sailor is learning and why. And be sure to check out the videos as they address many of your questions and concerns.
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
