I haven't commented here in months. But I do get comment notifications, so I enjoy seeing the positive comments. Yes, "B'sNuke" I've seen these statistics before. It is a challenging program, no doubt. But as our son did, if you stay out of trouble, "stay your course' and stay focused the can succeed. Our son finished proto beginning of December. Was assigned to Kings Bay (his first choice!) and is now underway. Possible 3 month deployment on a SSBN. It was tough for his mom & fiance', but before we know it he'll be back. May be able to email us updates. We're proud of what he's accomplished as all of you are for your kids. God bless & Godspeed to all of them. You all have a great weekend! Geaux Navy!

This was a statement I saw on FB today - posted by a mom at the Power School grad today: 

"The guest speaker said: 1% enlist in the military.  1% of those apply for the Navy Nuclear Program.  70-80% of those are accepted in to the Navy Nuclear Program and 75% of those graduate."

Happy Friday all and happy 1st day of Spring!

Welcome to the new members!  I "bumped" the discussion on "Your Sailor's Schedule Upon Arrival at GC" in the discussion forum above.  Gives you a good rundown on what will happen & when.

Well, leave is over.  He flies back to NY today to get his car and then drives (along with his roommate) to VA tomorrow.  He checks in to the Truman next week.  The journey continues!

Does anyone have a sailor on the USS Truman?

Hi all - Happy Friday!  Son graduated prototype in BS last week and we went and had a great time.  It was cold, but we survived.  I'm sorry we didn't get to meet up with you, Brian.  We did meet a few navy moms and of course many of our sons friends.  He's home with us now for 3 weeks and then it's off to the USS Truman.

He also re-enlisted and they did a ceremony for that too.  So very proud of him and all the sailors that graduated. BZ!

Thanks MagoostersMom!  Yep we fly out this afternoon. Can't wait to see our son.  Very excited for graduation - been a long 2 years lol!

Looking forward to meeting Brian there....also have a group of mom's that I've been communicating with on the FB page and we are excited to meet one another.

Fingers crossed the weather holds up (we lay over in Midway) then on to Albany.

Have a great day all - I'll post some pictures when we get back!

B's - First off, Congratulations to your son on his graduation!! :) And thank for your reply regarding the bedroom furniture. I'm glad it worked that your son will be able to move everything with him!
