good morning .
any Dad's with recruits at RTC now?
Good Evening Gentlemen! I am joining this group with what seems to me to be an unusual situation...you see...I'm not really a Navy Dad. My daughter is dating a very nice young man who recently pledged to join the Navy and will be going to basic this August. These two believe they are truly in love, but are going to have a tough row to hoe as our recruit goes off to basic and a total of a 5 year comittment. I'm not even this young man's Dad, he has a good Dad, but I feel as if my own son were joining the Navy, and I want to learn what I can about the process in order to support him, and keep my daughter's heart duct-taped together while he is away. I want to encourage them in their relationship as much as I can, and if this relationship is meant to be, then the Navy will not put them usunder. I hope I am not being naive. I like this young man. He is good for my daughter, and they are good together. He treats her like a princess. I look forward to developing some supportive relationships in this group that will help me help our recruit and his girl grow stronger with the Navy!
Thanks to you all!!
Hi everyone, sorry I had to sign in under my wife's name. My name is Carl, I have a son stationed on the USS San Antonio LPD-17 currently on deployment for 8 months somewhere in the Atlantic. He's 18 and graduated A school this past December as an O.S. This is his first time away from home.
Hello Chris and welcome! Yes, please pass along our congrats and thanks to your son!!!!
Chris, welcome and I bet you're proud of your son and his accomplishments. Tell you son congrats and thanks for his service from this retired Navy Senior Chief.
I don't know how I missed this group. Group title fits me to a tee. Six plus years ago my son enlisted. He is in his last year of STA-21 at The Citadel. Before going to flight school in a year or so, he will commission and graduate next May.
Greg - I have two weeks with my youngest who just joined the Army... I feel the same way Thank You Lord : )
