"The OBOGS problems are a serious concern.  The pipeline has a life of it's own---you can follow the schedule, which is cool.  Many pilots say the pipeline is the best time in a Naval Aviator's career!"

E2/C2 questions.

My son just selected for the E2/C2 from Pensacola.  He'd hoped for jets and had been top of his group with recommendations but unfortunately they didn't have any open slots the week he did selection.  He's excited to be heading to Corpus Christi to begin his training.  I have no real knowledge of the pipeline for the E2/C2 pilot.  Can someone explain it for me? How long is this training, where will they most likely end up, etc. Thank you!See More

Welcome aboard to NavyDads.com Melissa! 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.

Join us on Facebook as well!

Welcome to NavyDads.com Melissa! 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 (AM2) 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") and is stationed at Iwakuni, Japan. 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!
