Going to see my son and wondering where to stay??  Is there a Navy Lodge or Navy Inn up there? Any suggestions?

If anyone has a sailor heading up to ballston spa and needs any furniture or household items, please message me and I'll forward my son's email address to you.  He just got his orders and will be leaving in less than 2 weeks.  He has quite a bit of furniture and other household items that he has no use for.  They were also renting a nice little 3 bedroom duplex that will be vacant as of May 15.  He has a queen size bed frame, mattress and box spring that was purchased last May too.

Looking for information on NPTU graduation for class 1302.  An older schedule says late Dec but I understand that's been delayed to Jan.  Anyone with good, specific information about this?

My son is starting there mid Sept. 
I am at work and not supposed to be on there... can anyone tell me here - 

if he is in Goose Creek for Power School and graduates Aug 23rd, can he secure an apartment over the phone/internet/email or must he go there in person during his leave?

I would love to hear from any parent or sailor who can give me a little insight into being in the ELT part of Prototype.  My son is currently at the tail end of Prototype and will be starting ELT I think in August.  I know he's very excited about it as we are but I'm curious how this will impact is journey in the Navy as well as his future once in the civilian world?  Thanks in advance for anything ya'll can share with me :)

Probably asked a dozen times, but..

Do any of you know if there is a formal graduation ceremony at Ballston Spa?  If so, is it anything more than just a "grip and grin" thing?  My wife and I are trying to decide if we should travel there for it.  Complicated by the fact we will likely be moving about the time he is done...June 1st we think.

After Graduating PS in October, my son finally reported to BS on 12/16, love having him back in our home state, I got to see him 3 times in the month of December (woo hoo) he is working every day, but as of this weekend still no "class up" date
