Hope this is the first thread for this class.  Just a place for all to go for questions/info as we go through this experience.  Seems as if some of the class was able to make calls yesterday (8/29).  Maybe F Company?  Nothing from Ted in E Company…Continue

Hello everyone - Well, I got that call that I was hoping not to get (as we were all saying no news is good news).  Maria, my daughter, Class 13-10, was bumped to H-Class this morning.  She was in good spirits though and had some information that…Continue

Hey everyone. One of our Navy Moms want to give you all a heads up on something.

She found out from her son that magazines are contraband! She said that her son implied just send things that can fit in a letter envelope, and that newspaper and magazine clippings are okay.

Thanks for your service GANavyDad! We will keep an eye on things around this group. Bravo Zulu to your F/A-18 Super Hornet Pilot! Let us know when he qualifies for the Blue Angels!

Week 8 Officer PRL

Comment by GANavyDad on May 1, 2014 at 6:09pm

jakef18.jpgWell it has been 4 yrs since Jake Graduated OCS. He is now stationed in Lemoore, CA with VFA-86 and flies F/A-18 Super Hornets assigned to USS Ronald Reagan. What a ride it has been. When all this started about 5 yrs ago I would have never dreamed of the memories I would have today. Of all the memories I will never forget how proud I was that day in April when he Graduated OCS. My Youngest boy is definitely a man now. For all of you with kids in this pipeline all I can say is hold on and stand proud you have raised fine young men and women that are attempting things that most would never try.

I do not keep up with the page like I should but I am on the road a lot with work and it is just tough to do. If there is anyone who would be interested in taking over the administration of the page please let me know. Over the years there has been some great info added and I am glad to see new members join the page. Thanks to everyone that has contributed and followed the page. Godspeed to all.

Any Navy Dads out there with someone in OCS Class 01-13? My son Jake is in this class, Foxtrot Company. I'm very proud of him and ALL the Officer Candidates.

Hello men! If you notice above in the masthead of the group, I have added a few links. We are going to continue to build up this group a bit more. Eventually we would like to see as much information here as you might find in our boot camp group. We have some dads who have some question that we find difficult to answer. So any and all suggestions of what you would like to see here are most welcome!

Great to hear Jake had his wisdom teeth out already so he avoided that. He did have to have fillins drilled out and replaced since he was SNA. Calebs back out on the Bush doing certif cruse and Jakes hoping for better weather for flyin trying to finish phase 1 and start phase 2. Tactical stuff.


Comment by haseebmd05 on February 3, 2012 at 2:46pm

Yes I got a email today from him saying they were setting up his email account and also a letter. He said he has to get his wisdom teeth removed in week 9. Things are a little better, but its still very stressfull. Hes also lost his voice due to the yelling. He doesnt know when he will be able to call but will write us soon. So good to hear from him. I think ive read the letter over a million times. Thanks for asking. how are your boys doing?
