My son has been well cared for by his extended Navy family, every step of his career. The Navy has insured that he has the training, education and experience he needs to do his job well. He has become a responsible, squared away sailor and we are very, very proud of his accomplishments.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
The Reaper is long steep hill that is climbed at the end of the Crucible. It is pretty tough, thus the nickname. If you haven't read it, get "Into the Crucible." While it is about the SD Crucible it is interesting in terms of the underlying philosophy. At SD, it seems phone calls are kept to a minimum. It also varies by platoon. All the other platoons, except my grandson's, were allowed power bars and/or cookies.
