My lil sailor on the flight deck of the USS America, Monday, Sept. 15, 2014 after the Navy's newest war ship transited around South America. What a proud moment on Saturday, Oct. 11 to see her standing on the deck as the ship was commmissioned in beautiful San Francisco...Bravo Zulu all those who sail with her.
Thank you for welcoming me to NavyDads I found this web site while searching for informationContinue
relevant to my son in the Navy. Like all of you, I could not be any prouder of him and all the
brave men and women that serve in our military. Certainly, freedom is not free!
My son enlisted after 2 years of college because of his patriotism and sense of duty.
I wanted him to finish college, but he promised me that he will, while in the NAVY.
He became an AT and worked…
My son is seriously interested in joining the Navy but his main concern is life aboard a ship. He believes that once he is stationed aboard a ship, he would be at sea for months on end. Can anyone tell us what the duration aboard ship would be while at sea? I informed him that he probably wouldn't be at sea for more than 30 days before pulling in to port for supplies/fuel. Would this be accurate?
Thank you in advance.
Just got what I believe is the form letter from my Son who shipped out on 09/16. My wife and I have an agreement not to open anything from our Son unless we are together so I have to wait for her. It just strikes me odd that his Division on the return address is 001. I have seen a lot of divisions but they are usually 3 different numbers.
