"Thanks Tracey McCoy. Had a long talk with my son. Told him to stick in there and things will get better. He did just notify me that things are looking better. He has a more of a positive outlook. I explained to him that sometimes your on the bottom…"
Master at Arms: Questions and Answers to what your Sailor will be doing as a Navy (MA). This group is for the families, men and women (active, retired or reserve) who have chosen to be Naval Security & Enforcement.See More
"Jason, I think that the morale can be a bit tough in the MA rate. Especially in places like Bahrain, where it seems as though many of the sailors kind of get stuck in a rut just hanging out on base and doing a lot of drinking. Actually I think that…"
Thanks E.G I told him about that group and that he ought to join it. And yah it was very tough,You raise them for 18 years and then they just LEAVE!!!! but he's doing well and I'm happy for him. Thanks again
Alan thanks for getting Josh to join us. One of my visions for this site is for the sailors to be involved as well. They need all the support we can give them. I hope we are making our children proud of us by showing that we want to go through this journey with them all the way. If Josh is willing I would love for him to be involved in Ask A Sailor. Parents can ask questions in this group and sailors answer what they can. Some things they just cannot answer and we understand that. Also the sailors only have so much time to get on a computer so the more sailors we have checking it the better. South Korea (wow) that must be tough my son is headed for California and I thought that was to far from home. Thanks again for getting Josh involved on this site. I'm very honored to have him on here.
Alan on the main page under the pictures of groups it says create a group right under the navy brothers group. click on create a group. Just follow the instructions. Name the group, write a description of the group and you have to put a picture on for the group. If you have any questions just ask I'll be on here tonite. How is Joshua doing? and how far along is he?
Thanks Alan, I appreciate your heart felt thanks and I will pass along your comments to my sons. I know you understand how tough it is on moms. It’s not that easy on us dads either that’s why I like this site we can lean on each other. Josh will be in my thoughts; South Korea is a long way from home. I was stationed in Okinawa and Taiwan for 18 months and that was when Jane and I were engaged. Being away from each other for that long was almost unbearable. Yes, have Josh and Rachel join Navy Dads I think it would help them to be connected to something like this. There is also Navyformoms that might be of some comfort for Rachel. Thanks for the kind words about my boys they gat the good looks from their mom I am not sure what they got from me.
Alan, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you are here with us. Feel free to check out the site, join some groups and maybe start one of your own. This site is for you to use and enjoy. Don’t hastate to ask or answer questions. I have to go along with you on the God, Family and Country issue. Trust me I will not screw with any of those, you being an outdoorsmen, hunter and an avid gun NUT ;-). I also am with you in the proud department, I have two boys and they are both in the military. My youngest joined the Air Force over 4 years ago and my oldest joined the Navy and is finishing “A” school. Please thank Joshua for his service from an old Vietnam Vet.
