Is there any mom out there with a Son or daughter in Power school. My son just started and finished preschool and has been in power school for about 2 weeks now. Would love to hear about other mom's  stories about their child's experiences.

My son is now in Nuke school. He graduated OCS in Feb. 2009. Was on a surface ship for approximately 2 years and is now a LTJG. Everything has happened pretty quickly. It's sometimes hard to get all the info I want. LOL Can anyone give me a quick summary about what happens for the upcoming year. Thanks.

My son Nick graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering in December 2010.  He leaves next week for OCS in Newport.  He'll then train to work on submarines in Charleston.  I've picked up a lot of information about OCS on this site, but still have some questions.  Assuming Nick doesn't "roll," when can I expect him to graduate?  Is it usually the Friday of the 12th week?  I have heard most people arrive for graduation on Wednesday late afternoon and stay until Sunday.  Is that what you did?  Is your LO able leave OCS at that time, too?  Thanks!

My son graduates from OCS 9/10/10. My son will be on a surface ship.
Comment by dlouise on July 12, 2010 at 3:32pm
We are trying to decide how long to stay in Rhode Island after OCS graduation. I assume they get the whole weekend off.

My son graduated from college in May and started OCS in June. He just graduated OCS on 9/11/09. It was great. We enjoyed our visit to Rhode Island. He is working back at school (VMI here in Va) until he starts nuke school in November. Cannot wait to visit Charleston. Hope your son gets into OCS and gets on with his career . He is going to do surface or subs?

Hi Barbara:

Yes, my son did nuke school as enlisted. He just finished up in August and is in the process of applying to officer school. I don't know when he will hear on that. My understanding is he will go to Officer School and then go back to Charleston and do the nuke school as an officer. Where did your son go to Officer School? Did he just graduate from college? You will enjoy Charleslton. When you go, let me know and I'll tell you about the places we went. There are so many things to do there!

Hi Debbie
My son was Army ROTC in college and decided to switch to Navy in his last year because of the NUPOC program. .So he had to do OCS after he graduated. He just finished OCS and will be heading for Charleston in Nov.
We are looking forward to visiting Charleston, especially fin the winter!
What you are saying is your son did nuke school as enlisted? If so, will he have to go back to nuke school again as an Officer or is it the same schooling for both officers and enlisted?
Comment by Debbie B. on September 19, 2009 at 8:19am
Hi Barbara:

I was just curious, my son has finished nuke school as of August, he has applied to officer school, but in the meantime is on hold. Did your son do officer school in college or is he just starting the nuke program as an officer? Charleston is a nice place to be for awhle.
