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?

Thank you very much, very happy and proud to be here.  When my son told me he wanted to join the Navy I have to admit, I wasn't nervous or scared rather very proud.  My father was in the Navy back in the 60's on the USS Wasp (CV-18) which picked up one of the Gemini space capsules.  My plan was to follow in his footsteps and join the Navy as well but got side tracked with college and then joined the police department so military service was not to be.  When my son decided that military service was going to be his choice, his first plan was to be a Marine.  After some thinking (and a not so positive experience at the recruiting office) he really was impressed with the Navy recruiter.  a few short months later we were waving goodbye at the MEPS station and he is almost done with boot camp.  He is scheduled to graduate on 12, April and his whole family will be there to see him including his former Navy man Grandfather.  We could not be prouder of him and the man he is becoming and his decision to be a Navy man.  Looking forward to the camaraderie on this forum.

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 

At 2:36pm on March 7, 2019, David A said…

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

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.
