Thank you! I’m nervous for my son, but am sure he’ll do great. My father was also Navy, a hospital corpsman during the Vietnam era, serving in the Mediterranean. Long family line of service members in the military, reaching back to the revolutionary war.

Thank you, Jim.  I still kind of shocked right now, to be honest.  I read many of the discussions on this page including all of the information about separation on this page and on the boot camp page.  I mailed a letter today that requested Michael sign a HIPPA form.  I have not called legal yet or the separation administration office.  I am hoping Michael will call tomorrow so I can get a little more information from him.  Do you recommend I call either one of them to get more information?  Thanks again, Robin

Thank you, Jim. I was beaming with pride when he made his decision to join, and only got nervous about a week before he shipped off. The not knowing how he is doing is unsettling, but we have to let them go sooner or later. Taking it one day at a time.

Thank you very much for your warm welcome.  Speaking of past lives; I too had a brush with the Marines back in the Vietnam era.  My draft number was  at the top of the list & I thought  don't just get drafted, join an outfit  you want to be in.  I passed the Marine tests (height by 1/2 inch) and was all set to report the next week.  Then they stopped the draft & i yielded to the chorus of ALL of my friends urging me not to become a monster., so I did not report.  Regret that now.

I am very proud of my son and the choices he's making.  Week before shipping, he was nervous/scared, but knew that it was the right path at the right time, so went ahead.

He is in Dicv 934 and from what I hear that may mean that he may not march in at graduation..   Any clue about that?

This morning our son phoned home to wish his mother a happy birthday. In our brief conversation he mentioned a Tiger Cruise coming up for the Stennis (CVN-74), and I'd sure like to know more about that.

Thanks Jim..we friend requested them..waiting for a response. Heading to the commissioning  ceremony in July..should be exciting

Thank you Jim!

I have a counter on my phone that now says 4-days before boot camp!

I am excited for him and sad he is leaving after 18+ years

This Sunday we will be celebrating with friends and family.

Thanks for the welcome,

David

Thanks, Jim,

It's pretty coincidental: After my son told me he re-signed again I was cleaning out some stuff in my bookmarks and re-discovered Navy Dads.  

Once I stumbled upon it I remembered what a great support resource it was when he was in boot camp.  Simply scrolling through and reading others who had the same questions I had was a big help.

Now that my son has announced an intention to make the Navy a career, I have taken Navy Dads out of the depths of my bookmarks and placed it front and center on my bookmark bar.

Thanks again for the welcome back.

Thom
