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

My son graduated OCS at the end of March, class 08-16 Hotel.  It was a great experience for him, and a long one for us at home.  It is all fairly fresh in my mind.  If anyone is just about to begin this process or has just begun and you have…Continue

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.

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?

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.

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.

Anyone have a loved on in the Newport OCS Class of 9-12. I hope to hear from my son soon.

My son just graduated this last friday from OCS class 02-12, honor class. Was a wonderful experience at the graduation, went and ate at the chowhall with our son the morning of graduation, was too cold out to see them get destroyed by their Gunny lol.. but the slideshow at graduation was fun to see. Meeting the staff was a proud moment for me allowing me an opportunity to thank them for their hard work molding our young Naval Ensigns. Watching my sons first salute was a wonderful moment, i only wish my father had been alive to give it to share this with him, a real decorated hero. Those who have sons and daughters there, dont worry about them, they are in great and caring hands, and they will come out changed men and women that you can be unbelievably proud of. Go Navy.
