Tina- my son graduates from Power School July 9th and he was told they get 10 days of leave right after that.

Tina, Yes, they do get time off after Power School grad. Our son graduated in Nov. and he had a choice to take leave then or Christmas. We were there for 5 days at graduation so he chose to come home for Christmas.

Dan;s Mom--If you can get to Goose Creek at Thanksgiving, try and get into Foster Creek Villas ASAP! We shopped at Sam's two years ago, started telling our son to invite anyone he wanted over for dinner. I also invited some of my N4N Mom's to call their sailors. We had 13 for dinner and it was awesome! Let me know if you are interested and I'll give you my hints.
This year we did the same for Christmas, and fed sailors (and one Air Force DEPPER visiting) 3 times over the week. Thank goodness we had picked up charcoal the day before as the power went out. It came on an hour before we served, so we finished up veggies, etc then.

Check in advance for the A School and Prototype Graduations. A School is really small. Prototype was a "formality" -- like when they get "pinned/flocked". The "pinning/flocking" ceremonies on my son's carrier have been "closed" to families/outsiders, so we've missed those. He had told us that his Prototype was "closed" as well, and it may also depend on who is in charge at the time and what else is going on. BUT -- go to the Power School grad and make sure you go through the buildings to see what they'll let you when you're there, as you will not be allowed back at a later date. You get to "sight see" a little while they finish packing up their stuff, and NO -- you can't go and help them, even if it would expedite the process. They'll have sentries posted to make sure you go only where you are allowed to go. :) We were in GC for the Prototype as he had received orders and had to go. Also, he and his roommate had arranged their last move out day with the apt complex to coincide with that. There will be areas of their careers that even though they are important advancements, and things that we would like to celebrate with them, that unfortunately, we will not be able to. Take it in stride. (You can always send a celebration box to the ship/sub/house.)

I would love to go to all of the ceremonies. I am so proud of my son and his accomplishments but I asked my son if he wanted us there for A school grad or Thanksgiving, we cannot afford to do both, and he said Thanksgiving. He's planning to come home in August anyway. And the chances of my husband and myself both being able to attend Power School graduation are pretty slim. PIR was easy because we were 45 minutes away.

Hi Kathy, Your's is the first report I've heard from a prototype grad - do you have any idea what portion of the graduates were there? I can understand your reaction to the comment about "hard work", the guy was spot on for the most part though. For most being a nuc in the fleet is harder work than the training. The main exceptions are boomer sailors (other than about three weeks of refit before getting underway, and shipyard periods), and carrier ELTs. I see your son is on the GW in Yokosuka; our shipyard has a large workforce there for several months of work every year supporting the ship. I'll probably find myself there for a week at some time in the next few years.
