Thanks Jim, I have no idea what to expect. I don't know his motivation for joining or wanting to become a SEAL other than he's always challenging himself.

Thank you. We are pretty much a military family for the most part I guess you could say.My Grandfather fought in World War II. He was wounded twice shot once and tripped on a trip wire. We look forward to seeing our son in RI. And hope to get the most of this experience since we are not from the area. Any and all advice to make the trip the most fun for class 01-18 Charlie.

Thanks for the warm welcome Jim and thank your son for his service to our country. Things are still a little surreal around the house with being empty nesters on top of a child entering the military. We have a daughter entering her junior year at UW Lacrosse. Wesley reported to RTC GL on 8\8. It was tough for us to watch the van leave MEPS that day and the phone call a few hours later didn't really help. We raised him to be a respectable young man to this point and I guess he's learned something along the way. I know I've underestimated his character some too.
At the end of the day it's not about us, it's about him. We are both very proud of him for answering the call and trust he will make the most of the opportunity in front of him.
Thanks for listening and God Bless.
Dave

Thank you Jim! Thank you for your son's service!!

It has been a definite roller coaster ride with the unknowns.

My son's best friend went into the Navy also and left a week before July 20th and my son left July 27th so it is like we had two that left but at different times. My son's friend's Dad already got his grad date letter and a letter from his son a week ago and we are still waiting for the letter telling us his grad date and mailing address so we can hurry and get letters off to him soon here. We did receive his box of belongings already.  

Thank you again for the invite and also for this site to talk to others and hear what everyone have experienced.  

Thank you!!
