My son is currently somewhere under the water in a Sub.  We have had a couple of very short emails from him since he left.  Looking forward to when he returns as we are able to Skype with him once a week.

Ya, he will somehow get leave before he completes 12 months overseas but not Christmas, and after that who knows. He will then be in the Middle East for one more year. I was wondering if any Colorado sailors are doing their duty back in the US now.

Hi Dale, my son was home over Thanksgiving, hadn't seen him for 356 days before that.  He is back in Italy and will be there another couple years.  Your son still in the Middle East?

Wow! It's been since March since any comments. Are your Colorado MA's still deployed? Hope things are well.

He went through Aircrew, classed up in RSS and injured his foot on day 2 and got sent to medical and rolled back. Eventually he ended up switching to MA which is fine because he has a degree in Criminal Justice. The whole thing has taken a lot of time. Middle East.

Tracey, last name is Marshall.  Yes, he chose to extend a year.  Time off is great!  He had this past Christmas off, was able to attend Midnight Mass at the Vatican, once in a lifetime experience.

Rich, what is your sons last name? They just had a big section swap a few weeks ago that shook things up. But my daughter just went to days.... which she is very happy about!  If you son got distinguished and chose to extend his enlistment for a year, than he will get that promotion to E4.... it took about 8 months for my daughter to get it. Fortunately they counted that 8 months as time in grade, which is why she is able to test for E5 just a short time after being promoted to E4. I understand why they don't love their jobs...and the 15 hour shifts...but they really have great days off.

Hi Barry... Nice to meet another Colorado Dad!

Looks like you woke up the Colorado Navy Dads group a little Rich. I'm a former Parkerite now in Littleton.  My son has been in since August 2014. Stationed in Norfolk on The Eisenhower as a Nuclear Machinist Mate (MMN). He's been on one deployment and been to Italy, France and the Mid East. He loved Italy.
