What Is Your Relationship With Your Sailor
Please Share: How Did You Find Us?
I was lead to this site by the USNA parents list-serve. There, I was directed to a site for Navy moms, so I checked to see if there was a similar site for Navy dads.

I live about 9-10 miles from the academy, your son must be telling you about the grest weather we have been having the last week or so.
Congradulations to you and your son, a great school. great football team this year also. It is truly honor to meet the young Mids on a weekend stroll around Main ST and Ego Alley.
This is a great area, hopefully you'll have some spare time when you arrive for Graduation, a lot to see and some excellent restaurants.
My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted 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 Dominic for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.
Welcome to NavyDads Frank! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun, useful, and educational as I have. Explore the site 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 certainly 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 in the family - my son Eric (AM3) returned spring '09 from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) returned fall '08 from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Frank this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Dominic 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.
