Navy Dads

It’s been almost eight weeks since our son entered the doors of the U.S. Navy RTC. Since day one, I’ve done nothing short of worrying non-stop about him all the time…

I just wanted to express my gratitude to his recruiter S. Sargent from the Navy Recruiting Station, Fairfield, CA and the entire team at RTC for giving him the opportunity to serve our country in the most awesome Navy in the world.

Bravo Zulu to all of the Sailors for a job well done Hoo-Yah!

Last but not least, a “Special Thanks” to all of the Admins and Members of NavyDads.Com for all of the information, resources, support and helpful advice which got me through my own emotional boot camp of sorts.

We are packed and ready to rock and roll for PIR this Friday!
Thank You Lord and God Bless You All…

We'll be there at the earliest possible time for good seats. He may head out as early as that evening to Pensacola, FL for A school but that's not a definite. I already picked out a place for lunch and will tell y'all how that goes when we return...

I dont know. Kurt said to get there early to get a good seat. I got there early the best view was when she walked by in marching. My advice get good seats, get out of there as quick as possible, and by all means check out The Tavern restaurant. 


Where is his A school?

I cried like a baby. When that overhead door went up, well...I can't describe how I felt. My son's division was the first one in and I thought I was going to jump out of my skin!

Just be sure to take it all in and have a blast with your new sailor and enjoy the time with him. Visits will be few and far between. We expect a full report and pictures next week! HOOYAH!
