Hey Tom - thanks so much for the kind words.  I really appreciate you pointing me in the right direction here & will be making the most of NAVYDADS, believe me!  I'm a little anxious, but that's only because there's a LOT I just don't know & a LOT to figure out ASAP...or at least that's how I feel - but I'm as proud as any Dad can be of my daughter's decision to join the USN & I know I'll benefit from the wisdom and experience of those of you who have gone before me!!

Thank you for the welcome. I'm looking forward to staying in touch during my son's enlistment and beyond.

Thank you for the warm welcome.  Trevor had been in Boot Camp about a month now.  I wish I had found Navy Dads MUCH sooner.  Great Information and great insight in the world that kinda leaves us behind to wonder how things are going .  Ultimately great for them but tough to start. You guys do a great job, thank you for that!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the reply.  Small world, right?  Yes, Matt is on the Carl Vinson right now and I just got the "You're approved" for the Tiger Cruise in May.  Matt is still finding his way in the Navy, wanting to get back to Special Forces.  Hopefully that will happen this summer.

Anyway I love this site.  I've already accumulated a few pages of notes for the cruise.  Thanks to you and everybody on here.

I would like to thank all who have messaged me and welcomed me as new member of Navy dad's ...Kinda hard getting use to having my boy gone but it gives me great comfort knowing he is out there helping keep our country safe ..... I told my son before he left that no one person is the Navy and no matter how small you think your part is , It takes all those small parts to make up the whole ...Finally heard from him from Great Lakes , he's more than halfway thru and I am very happy how acclamated he is to his new lifestyle ....Go Navy .

Thank You Paul.  I am waiting on some information from my son, then I will make a final decision.

Thank you Tom!  It's definitely different right now, not being able to contact him.  He originally was supposed to go to Boot in June, but an opening occurred and he was asked if he wanted to leave early.  He was so excited as it was for the June date that he jumped on the earlier date.  As a parent, we are always protective and planning for things for our child's future, but now that he is gone, plans we had before he was supposed to leave in June have definitely changed and the next time I will see him, he will be a changed man.  I have a question about the Great Lakes area.  I received the package from the Navy in reference to his graduation date.  I will need to make hotel/car/flight reservations.  Many of the hotels listed on the brochure are the kind of hotels which are dives here in the Atlanta area.  Obviously, I would like to stay close to the base, but in a relatively safe area (his grandmother is coming to the ceremony).  Is there an area which is close and fits the bill for a safe area?
