Hi Joe, welcome aboard from Nappanee!  My son Andrew just finished his enlistment in the Seabees after 5 years. This is a great place to get your questions answered as your son prepares and enters Navy life. Good luck to him in his coming adventures.

Hey everyone!  I see that this group has been stagnant for almost a year now.  Let's change that!!! My son just enlisted on 9-9-15.  I am so proud of him!!!  He ships out to boot camp on April 12, 2016.  I'm a very proud but very nervous Navy Dad!

It is a reminder that this journey our children have chosen involves serious risks under potentially adverse conditions.  We honor life of Cpl. Spears and his service and sacrifice to our Country.

Just joined the group. My son (Jon) is in Goose Creek SC for A-school and Nuke training. He had PIR on May 30, 2014. Looking forward to meeting some other families with sailors here in IN.

Looks like a good group. Maybe next time I'll be able to make it. Glad to see everyone turn out.

So sorry to hear that Jim. We are sure proud of him for serving while he could. Hopefully with medication he will keep it under control.
