"Phil, I hope it's not just about the money for her. A re-enlistment bonus is nice, but it's not a guarantee. Maybe the other CTTs got a different deal when they enlisted. CTT is a tough rate and trust me, it's a rate that is needed.…"

Jim,

Thank you for your comment and warm welcome! Also, thank you to your son for his service! My daughter Hannah is just completing her first full week of RTC and I'm sure, is still getting her sea legs.

I come from a family with some military background. My Dad was in the Air Force during the Korean conflict and my older sister served in the Navy in the late seventies and early eighties in Antarctica of all places.

Hannah is very patriotic and wants to serve her country. She is also ambitious and after her Navy career will go to a school that specializes in the technological end of the entertainment industry. She has a plan. That's more than I can say when I was 18. LOL!

Thanks again and I will make full use of the NavyDads.com website as things progress.

Sincerely,

Wes Kanost

Thank you! I'm hoping to learn a lot here. My daughter will be my only "experience" with the military.

Nothing has ever been SO new to me and I'm looking for all the "help" I can get. :)

Thanks for the welcome. To those who are "lurking" , my son has made it through boot camp and now is in the ET programme at Goose Creek, SC.  Week 8 or thereabouts.

Yes, I'm proud of him.  Excessively.

Background:  I'm not military; the draft expired the year I graduated college (they probably wouldn't have wanted me because my eyesight was terrible), and my father was Army Air Force (yes, that long ago) before I was born.

God bless you all.  Now, if only the .mil and .gov would update the security certificates on their sites, so that I would not need to add Firefox security exceptions...

Hi Jim,
Thanks very much for the warm welcome! Look forward to learning from everyone's experiences and sharing my own. Thanks to your son for his service.

GO NAVY!

Thanks, Jim.  My son's name is Eric also. :)  He was told back in March by his recruiter that he was accepted into OCS.  He was told his letter/orders would arrive within a month.  It's been two months now and nothing.  He's working out every day and trying not to be discouraged.  He's very ready to get on with his new career.  T

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the warm welcome. And thanks to your son for his service!

Jim,

Thanks for the warm welcome.  I understand how the early days of enlistment can be stressful, I am watching my wife start to rev up the panic meter.  Luckily I have lived the sailor side of things and have been able to talk her off the ledge more than once.

Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank you for the warm welcome and the confidence you all share. My son christopher made his choice on his own and is mentally, physically and spiritually solid young man. I wish I could hear from him more often as we chatted everyday in our pre-boot camp life. The only thing I have read from him was on the form letter and it read. DAD, this place is intense. He will do well and I'm looking forward to congratulating him on May 19th as he accomplishes his first step of navy life. I know how proud he was when he left and his transformation from young Palm Beach County Florida grown, to now a US Navy Sailor will be a sweet moment for his extremely proud DAD    

Thank you all and god bless, Looking forward to keep up on the site

All the best

Patrick

Thanks so much for the admit.......am heading down to CLJ for another long weekend visit with my sailor.....I want to get in all the visits i can before he "heads out" this summer.....Again, thanks :)

At 11:47am on March 18, 2017, Andrew Warrington said…

Thanks Jim and all, yes I am proud and a little surprised he chose this as we are not a military family either. He has to do the security/ background stuff (and renounce his British citizenship) before they will schedule a class at OCS, so it could be some time. He has the SWO board recommendation so I am told that is a good sign. I am glad to be part of NavyDads and I am sure I will learn lots too. Thanks, Andrew
