Dwayne, tell him not too fret. The ITS rate is relatively new, only like a few years old. Therefore he should see a pretty quick and easy advancement rate. Not to mention he will probably see his job much less demanding and can laugh at the nukes when his workload is light compared to theirs and he is going home right after deployment and they are stuck there for hours more shutting down.

The nuke program is very demanding and not you said, it is not the end of the world and feeling good about where he is going is a very positive thing!

Got the news we all dread, my son got "de-Nuked" (was in the EM program). The good news is that he got re-rated to IT-S (he wanted ET originally and was a bit disappointed with EM at the time) and is headed to Groton for sub and A school. He is a lot happier now and now feels he has a rate that fits his interests. Words of wisdom from my sailor: De-nuked does not mean the end of your Navy career - hang in there and keep a good attitude.

You will have no prob talking to them when not out to sea

Family grams are old, a thing of the past. They can send and receive email. Be aware of they are on alert or a mission you will not be able to receive anything from them

Oops. Let me clarify--the texting, etc. q. was regarding when they are NOT on a mission and on the island. And Jim you pretty much confirmed what I have learned, so far, regarding 'family grams' while on the boat and underway. As I understand it, the messages are of limited length, censored, and no bad news for sub Sailors is allowed while underway.

Grant, depending on the type of sub, they can be under water for very long periods of time. Communication with your sailor will be very thin to none at all. Generally when they're under on patrol, the only comms are with fleet command.

Question regarding Guam: Will communication with us here in the CON-US be pretty much "normal" regarding texting, phone calls, video conferencing, etc.? Any information regarding 'family grams' or whatever the current form(s) of communication for submariners would also be appreciated. It's possible that our sailor may be boarding his boat very soon after arrival in Guam. Thanks.

Boots in the House, Matt and Becky made it home for Christmas. Might be the last one for 2-3 years, as he reports to his Boat in May/June     12392039_1041823902529304_4342963485635850431_n.jpg
