My son Alex is scheduled to report to OCS June 20.  Is there a way to find out his class number ahead of time?  We have everything else we need to compose his mail address.Continue

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

I didn't see a discussion yet for this class, hope I'm not stepping on someone's toes by starting one.  My son Michael reported in for the class on Sunday, they were advised that it wasn't going to start until Tuesday, because of hurricane Irene.  I…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

Just joining in the thread. My son started 15 Feb, believe from some earlier posts it is Class 14-10. Other than quick phone call second night, haven't heard anything. No news is good news, I hope.

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.

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?

Any news hassebmd05

Comment by haseebmd05 on January 24, 2012 at 9:43pm

Thanks! As soon as i hear something I will let you guys know. I know he has some phone cards and stamps with him but he might not have access to them yet so i will attach one in the letter i send him. Very sweet of your son to keep you letters. 

Comment by GANavyDad on January 24, 2012 at 6:35pm

Yeah it is tough. I was very worried about my son. I did not think he would do well with the mind games but he supprised me. I got an e-mail the friday after he left just a short one when he got to set up his email but they can use it again till like week 7 or 8. Got my frist phone call after I think the third week and only three letter from him. Keep in mind they are very busy and do not pressure him to write. When he calls the connection is terrible so just lisen he is limited on time and you will only understand about every other word but just be there. Remember NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS I know it is hard but believe me he is in good hands and will be just fine. Might want to send him a couple of phone cards and some stamps. Also send your phone number with todays cell phones no one remembers numbers. I was the only one in the family to get an email because he just remembered mine. he was very glad I sent him everyones phone number. I would include a motivative quote in every letter and closed with the reminder that Gold Bars awaited him at the end, To this day he still has every letter I sent, and yes I wrote just about everyday. Some letters were just a couple of lines but he loved them all.

Thank you Ganavydad. Wow your must be very proud of your 2 sons. Im glad to hear they are doing so well. I wrote to my son yesterday and again today so when he can finally write he will have many letters to read. Thanks for the advice about the sports clippings. I will def do that. I will check on facebook as well. Thank you for your advice. Its just hard not being able to talk to him and encouraging him.
