Thank you Paul and Jim for accepting me to the group and for the encouraging words.  Im very proud of Ethan for his courage to serve his country.  I have a lot to learn before he graduates so I'll take all the advice i can get.  Thanks again.

Jim, thank you for your welcome note and for making yourself available to those of us new to this experience.  Like you I have been impressed by my son's mature decision making and the commitment he's shown in joining and participating in DEP.  I look forward to the journey.

Thank you again!

Hi,Jim!

Being a Vet, I knew my Son made the best decision. He didn't want to tell me he went Navy, fearing I would be unhappy since he didn't go Army like me. I didn't ( and don't )  care which branch he chose, I just wanted the best for him. The amount of growth I've seen in his letters is a Blessing. I hope your Son is doing well... I understand the shock of not realizing his plans can be overwhelming , but GOD does have his hand in all our kids do. I am dismayed they only give him the day for Liberty - I got the weekend when I finished Basic Training, and I didn't even think to check if things had changed since 1979.

OOOPS!

GOD bless you for your service to Navy Dads... and thank you for your quick response!!

Thank you very much Jim, indeed we are all in the same case, the fear of losing a loved one by engaging in the navy, but after this fear disappears to give place to pride, I am very honored to be part of this site.

Thank you for sharing. My son will be honored on the last deployment of the vessel he was assigned to. I had the heart to heart that he MAY be called to the supreme sacrifice, but he assured me he understood. We both know he will see the Lord if that happens. WOW, what a great young man has emerged - GO NAVY!

Thanks Jim,

my son leaves this week for OCS.  Due to this site and the OCS official webpage, we feel much better prepared.

thanks so much!

I agree with you, Jim.  The decision of my Son to enlist was well researched and thought out.  The most mature decision he has made.  I am confident he will do well.
