NFT: Super Proud Dad Moment

jvm52106 : 8/5/2022 5:57 am
My son joined the Navy and went to "boot camp" in Late January. Graduated from that and went to A School in Jacksonville, FL and then C School in Lenore, Ca. Today he flies out (after a short visit with his Mom, was with us between A and C schools) to Japan.

It was a dream of his to visit Japan and now he will be stationed there- though he could be heading onto the USS Ronald Reagan sooner than first thought.

I am deeply proud of my son Austin and can't wait to see what his future holds.

I know the feeling watching my son "graduate" from Army boot camp nearly 14 years ago.
Congratulations to you and your son.

Thank him for his service and may Austin always be safe. We are the Land of the Free because of the Brave. Truly appreciate all of our Veterans and the time they have served.

I think his training will provide many opportunities. Best of Luck to him.

I wish your son the best. Thank you for raising a young man willing to serve with the risk of making the ultimate sacrifice. I am sure Dad was a big influence in shaping this brave young man.

My daughter just joined NROTC as a rising sophomore in college. It's a proud feeling as a parent to see your child put themselves out there.

You have great reason to be proud!!!

Anyway, congratulations to your son.
