"Our son was selected for SWO in April and it still waiting. No one seems to have any way of telling what the dates are. A little frustrating ... but I am sure it will be worth it."

"Marty, You should be a proud parent. Watching your kids grow into officers is a great moment. The Navy seems to be random when assigning classes but most of it depends on people in Millington, Tenn. They control class dates. I have had 3 go thru…"

OCS selection

Very proud that our son has received his OCS selection letter.  Both his grandfathers served but the process is new to me and his mother. How long does it typically take to get his class date? Does anyone have an estimate of the OCS graduation rates?   Thanks, Marty See More

Welcome to NavyDads.com Marty! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM1) was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), was attached to Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 37 (HSM-37) in Hawaii, and is now attached to VAW-125 ("The Tigertails"), is stationed at Iwakuni, Japan and is currently deployed as part of Carrier Strike Group 5 on the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76). My daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist(MC3). If NavyDads.com were around in those early days, it would have made my first days as a Navy parent much easier!

I'm sure you'll find NavyDads.com as useful, educational and informative as I have over the past few years. Click How To Get Started for a guide on getting going in your NavyDads.com experience! I hope you take the time to explore the site and make some new friends. Read the discussions and add your comments. Browse through the postings in the various groups or start a new one. If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...be sure to post them! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the direction to find out. And Marty this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how your son Will is doing! Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link for some guidelines as to what we should not talk about in a public forum like NavyDads.com.

Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com Marty! When my son first enlisted, I was a little scared and worried for him. Not coming from a military family at all, I had no idea what to expect. What I found out was that he had made the most mature decision of his life! I found lots of answers to my questions right here on NavyDads.com.

My son Stephen was an AWO2 in the P-3 community. However, after 6 years of service, he was medically discharged in July of 2014. We are proud of our son and his service to our country.
