Jim, thank you good Sir for your reply, your outreach and your welcome. It is certainly a new journey and between you, Paul and Navy Dads I feel I am getting caught up to speed. My boy Christopher and I have had letters flowing regularly while he is in boot camp, graduating on Friday. Thank you, your son and your entire family. God Bless - Bob
Thanks for the add, Jim. Since I, too, have no military experience, I feel like I’m in the dark. However, I have found a wealth of helpful info on this site already. Thanks to your son and all your family for his service and your sacrifice. Thanks for your support of all us newbies!
Thanks all for welcome. Surprised didn't learn of this group till now. My son (AW) left RTC thanksgiving weekend for Pensacola and was finally classed up for NACCS and starting next week. He can't wait to find out his final rate. He would like AWF or AWS "Dry". Have a lot of questions so looking forward to hearing the experience of other seasoned Navy Aircrew Dads with Airman in Pensacola. GO NAVY!
Thank you for the warm welcome! I’m very excited and proud that my son joined the Navy. I have no doubt it’s one of the best decisions that he has made and that it will be so good for him and his future. Honestly, I’m a little jealous of him. I’m super excited to go to PIR in December and see my boy after his time in training.
Thanks again for induction into Navydas. Go navy! HOOYA!
Yes, he is being sent home soon...possibly before the 31st is what he was told...From what I hear it's going to be a pain to be able to re-enlist...I hear it's going to depend on if the recruiter wants to deal w/ it or not...Any advice is greatly appreciated...what should we do when he gets home? Go straight to doctor? Is it my doctor or a Military doctor? Do we go straight to recruiter?
Thanks Jim. I am very excited for him. I know he has prepared himself for this both physically and mentally. We have many family members that are former military, including myself and both his grandfathers. Although he is the first in the family to join the navy and an officer to boot! We are all so very proud. He started on Sunday 9/23. Is this where I can ask specific questions...such as graduation date?...or is there another forum that would do that? The video was nice lining out the 12 week course...made me feel better having an idea how things would go. thanks
Thank you for the welcome, Jim! I work for Lockheed Martin and we do most of our work for the Navy so I am not a complete fish out of water when it comes to the Navy, but I am sure this site will help me learn many things that I am unaware of. Thanks again for the welcome.
