Navy Dads

Well guys...... Down to about 12 days until my son leaves for RTC.  I'm sure I'll be on here daily after that.  Just been trying to make the best of our remaining time together. I've heard of delays in December(in regards to "grouping up"), anyone know if that will hold true for his reporting date of 06December?

Join the boot camp group that way you can have a good idea what to expect.......
My son is in as a Dirt Sailor....SeaBee CE . His pri is January 6th you will miss them but I find that writing them a letter whenever you get that feeling helps Dad now and in 5 days it helps the kids when they read it

Gary, Thank you. I got the call from my son at 21:57hrs. I was surprised it was early as it was. He sounded good even tho it was a scripted call. Didnt sense any stress yet. Thanks for your reply. Where is a good place on here for my to read and reach out to other dads with sons/daughters currently in Boot Camp. He is enlisted as a CTI. Should I hang around the CT forum or is there a larger more general one with daily posts about Boot Camp.

Well today was your sons big day! You should be getting your I made it call tonight. It will be very scripted and short. In about 8-10 days you will receive his form letter with his address if it takes much longer than that then you can more than likely assume that your son is on a p-hold and could be delayed getting out of p-days and on to training. My son is at the half way point right now we have received three letters and one phone call so far.
