Sorry I missed you Holly. I wasn't on line when you were in chat. We are doing well! Stephen is working hard in an automotive shop now, and he is looking into partnering up with another one of his mechanic buddies and buying their own shop. I hope it works out for him!
I’m Leaving On A Jet Plane, “Welcome Aboard”. I am glad that you have joined us. 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. Thank you for your service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet.
Welcome to NavyDads I'm Leaving....! 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 what you are about to go 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 I'm Leaving....this is a great place to brag so join in and let us know how you are doing!
As a a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what you are about to go through. Thanks to one of our members we have two excellent videos that you can access from the Video area on the NavyDads.com 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 PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul
Sailor, " Welcome Aboard " 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 want to thank you for your commitment to serve our country and to protect its freedom. We dads and moms on here are very proud of all the Sailors seriving in the Navy. Please jump right in and make this site your own. We love our Sailors on here. They have been a big help to us parents and we hope to them as well. Also we will support you throughout your journey in the Navy. We parents on this site are here for anything you need. God bless you in your travels and thanks again for joining us.
