Congrats Richard I bet you are very proud. I graduated Aug 1978 GL co 106 Div 17 and got to attend a Navy graduation in 2014 and it was the best feeling to be able to go back so I am sure you are very proud to see your daughter back there after 8 years leading the charge. I got on here because my son and his friends all had joined. My son was sent home after a short time due to medical reasons and disclosures but I have kept on here hoping to maybe help with advice but I have found that so much has changed since I was in that I am very little help but I still like to read and hear about the Navy I was once in but will always be a part of. To have your daughter be there as and RDC has to be a really great moment, how proud you must be. Tell her congrats from an "Old Salt Squid". God Bless

In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm blessed to have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) is stationed on the carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) just completed her five-year enlistment on the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Richard this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how Heather is doing!

When my son first enlisted in the Navy I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to his future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads but found out I was wrong. So I started this site so us dads would also have a place to call home. I'm new at this and hope this site will benefit fathers that follow behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your Sailor. I'm so glad to find out their are so many proud Navy Dads just like myself. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your daughters journey in the Navy. Thank Heather for her service for me and thanks again for joining us.
