"I agree with Paul whole heartedly. We learned a valuable lesson after Vietnam. The US is more like the world's peace keeper, and the troops are the cops!"

How do Americans view our Military?

As a family with a long Navy History and 2 nephews serving and a daughter now in BC, how they are perceived by Americans is more observed by us then others. I am sure others have noticed acts of kindness, respect and thanks towards our Military Personnel. Share your thoughts and observations here. My family recently attended a family reunion and many were asking about how our daughter was doing. Family pride was oozing out as they told stories of other family members serving and wishing her…See More

Thanks for the Welcomes to the site! Since I joined in May my daughter has expereinced trying times to become a Sailor. She all set it seemed waiting for a routine waiver and atteded DEPP. Then she was sent for a follow-up eye exam due to a poor reading on light refraction. The Tech screwed up and Cass was discharged from the Navy for not passing this part of the physical. Her recruiting Chief worked with her and she filed an appeal with another opinion from an Opthemologist. Her appeal was accepted and she was back in, but now had to go through a bunch of the same stuff as a new recruit. Bottom line she is in, has a job and scheduled for Boot Camp in September. She stuck to her guns to get in. We wish her well and hope it is all she wants it to be.

Welcome to NavyDads Keith! I'm sure you'll find the site as useful, educational and informative 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 she 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) just completed her five-year enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Keith this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Cassandra 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.

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your daughter is going through. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. Take a few minutes to 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 as they address many of your questions and concerns.

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

Keith, Welcome Aboard!

When my son first enlisted in the Navy I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to his future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads but found out 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 hope this site will benefit fathers that follow 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 daughters journey in the Navy. Thank Cassandra for her service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.
