B'sNukeMom  There weren't any photos probably because of the threats against our sailors.  I have photos if someone had a loved one in 1404GC and would like to see if somehow I captured their sailor walking.  If they have a last name around F then it is a possibility.  I didn't post them due to the threat.

Thanks B'sNukeMom. I'd figured we'll go to every graduation that he has, I was just trying to figure out when to bring my mother.

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM(CVN75) on April 13, 2015 at 1:19pm

TJ - glad to have your sailor in GC!  Now the fun begins ;-) (And it's a roller coaster of a ride lol!)

A School grad is pretty low key, PS is a bigger ceremony and Proto ceremony depends on where your sailor is.  Mine was in BS and there was a ceremony....low key, but glad we went (even though we turned around and came right back home to CA!).  From the last few posts here I'm not sure if GC is having a ceremony from proto.....they weren't, then they were & now they aren't again?  Any chance you can get to Charleston I say go for it!  Great place to visit - lots of history. (And you'll get to see your sailor ;-))

Thank you so much!!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM(CVN75) on April 13, 2015 at 1:04pm

JessNukeMom - yes they do re-take their boards.  I believe they have to wait 5 days and then it has to be done within a couple of weeks.  They will do a lot of studying during that time and their instructors will work (and work) with them.  The Navy wants them to pass too!  Tell your sailor not to stress....he knows the info - he just needs to relax and rely on his training.  He's got this!  Best of luck to him ;-)

Comment by JessNukeMom on April 13, 2015 at 12:58pm

Anyone know what happens if a Sailor fails his boards at the end of prototype? Can they re-take it? Haven't gotten much info and I'm on pins and needles!

Comment by NancyJo (CVN70) on April 13, 2015 at 12:11pm

Power School is awesome too. I don't think anything compares to PIR but PS is definitely worth the trip. My sailor was actually rather emotional at PS. So much work and worry, and it's a huge achievement. Yup, if possible, PS is a go-to event.

Comment by CountryGirl on April 13, 2015 at 12:09pm

I should clarify... it is like power school when they don't pass on time.  Those that have to re-board etc. miss out on power school graduation sometimes and it is the same with prototype.

Comment by TJ Proudnukemom on April 13, 2015 at 11:57am

Well my son made it to GC safe and sound! We took my MIL with us to PIR and would like to take my mother to a graduation as well. I've read that A School graduation is pretty low key. What is Power School graduation like?

Comment by CountryGirl on April 13, 2015 at 11:54am

There was a graduation for class 1404 in GC.  It was March 27th.  If your sailor wasn't fully signed off etc. by that date then it is like power school.... they don't have a special graduation for them.  They just pass & then move on to the next assignment. Kinda of a bummer since they work hard for a couple of years. :(  But bright side is they are DONE!!  Onto the next adventure! :)
