Welcome to the Navy, Proudmamabear! My son is also a Nuke and just completed all the school phases and is now on a sub (Henry M. Jackson stationed in Bangor, WA) and out on his first deployment now as we speak! It is a wild ride but hang in there! If you have any questions, we can all help you!

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post. See change 4 in OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). To increase PERSEC, don't include ANYONE in your profile pic.
Also make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your Sailor.
If your Sailor is still on the Jackson, then join USS Henry M, Jackson (SSBN 730), Bangor/Bremerton/Kitsap Sailors and Family and/or Sub Moms. If not, where is he stationed? What vessel, if one?
