    So he got an early call home but it wasn't to me.

    Posted by Blake Owen on December 11, 2014 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

    Monday he called his mom for the usual "extra information" they always seem to need for those getting a high security clearance. I'm not sure they really need this info because I know for a fact that the information they asked for was already clear, concise and correct. I remember going over everything with my son to make sure all the "I's" were dotted and "T's" were crossed. I think they make random choices to see if there are in inconsistencies in the information given to recruiters and…

    Form letter signals time to send letters and make reservations.

    Posted by Blake Owen on December 9, 2014 at 2:36pm 1 Comment

    I had five letters ready to go so those are getting mailed today. He will have something to read over this weekend. Got reservations at the Navy lodge and that is covered. Somehow I was late to the party as all the suites were gone. No matter I was still able to get a room with a kitchenette so we can cook for him.

    He sent the form letter last Thursday so they are humping it. I'm glad he is graduating two weeks sooner than we speculated.

    Now it's time to hunker down, write…

    Div 803 graduation question

    Posted by John Roberts on December 7, 2014 at 8:56pm 3 Comments

    My son's pir is 12/12 . When we spent the day on Thanksgiving he indicated he might be home for Christmas before Dive Prep at Gl. We have not heard from him since other than a few letters, but when might we find out if Christmas is a reality? He said no promises however I can tell you my wife and I are hopeful. Looking forward to Sarges meet and greet Thursday and spending the weekend with our son during his Liberties.

    Traveling by Train from Newark to Norfolk.

    Posted by Jonathan Losche on December 7, 2014 at 6:56pm 2 Comments

    Greeting,

    Does anyone have experience traveling by train to Norfolk?

    My son is traveling back to Norfolk after leave here in NJ.  Wondering if there are any transfers on the line and what the service is like getting from the station to the base.  Taxi? does the base run a shuttle? 

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    The Box Came Today

    Posted by Blake Owen on December 4, 2014 at 10:32pm 1 Comment

    Well that was faster than I expected. I had my son send the box to my workplace because I knew it needed to be signed for. Imagine my surprise when I saw that box with my son's name on it sitting on my desk today. I didn't expect to get emotional about it but it came upon me all of a sudden. I'd been okay since I dropped him off at the recruiters office. I may keep the box to store his letters and other mementos from RTC, "A" school and beyond. 

    I got his call late Monday night but I…

    The Adventure Begins!

    Posted by Blake Owen on December 1, 2014 at 2:09pm 1 Comment

    Dropped my son off at the recruiter's office yesterday to send him off on his great adventure and his new life. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. We've been very tight for 24 years and all in one swoop there is an instant and long separation. I remember the day he called me on the way home from his physical in August. It got real when I heard him say"Dad, I ship on December 1st."     Gulp!

    I am so happy for him because it is the culmination of a lot of hard work…
