Describe A Little About Yourself:

Prior Military Experience
Proud Army Veteran
What Brought You To This Site:
my grandson is recently enlisted
What Were Your Feelings When Your Sailor Joined The Navy:
He is only 18 a recent high school graduate. He made his decision to join the Navy and I respect and am proud of his choice. I felt that he did not have much of a transition period moving from a family environment to a world of men with adult duties and responsibilities. I believe he will succeed in whatever work path he choses in the Navy.

We've prepared a short welcome video that will give you a brief tour of the site and highlight some of the more important features you'll find on NavyDads.com. If you click this link Go To Welcome Page you'll be able to watch the video. We've made some cosmetic changes to the site since the video was prepared, but all important aspects of navigation around NavyDads.com are the same.
Welcome to NavyDads.com Cesar! I'm sure you'll find NavyDads as useful, educational and informative as I have. Please explore the site and make some new friends. Read the discussions and add your comments. Browse through the postings in the various groups or start a new one. 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! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the direction to find out. I'm blessed 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) recently completed her enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Cesar this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how Nicolas is doing! Please remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors and the fleet in mind. On the right or starboard 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 for some guidelines as to what we should and should not talk about in a public forum.
As a grandparent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your grandson is going through. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. 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 available in the Bootcamp Group as well.
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
