Marla, tell the hubby I will be on his ship in a few weeks. Inspection time!
Comment by Deb M on March 31, 2010 at 7:08pm
Expect there are a number of versions - not all for public display. . .

Our sailor came up with Ships Tour Guide. . .

Sonar Chief - kudos for Self Taught Genius. . . .

Bev - glad you enjoyed

And Marla - I expect hubby would have to arm wrestle with Sonar Chief for that one. . . LOL
Comment by Marla on March 31, 2010 at 2:49pm
Hey Chief - Hubby laughed when I read him the Self Taught Genius....he prefers to think of himself as Second To God...lol.
Comment by Lori (Jake's mom) on March 31, 2010 at 7:13am
Deb M - thank you so much for all the info! I'm enjoying all of the discussions and I'm learning so much.

Sonar Chief - My son is going to love Self Taught Genius! If I tell him, I may never hear the end of it!
Comment by Bev on March 31, 2010 at 12:05am
I'm back from San Diego, had a great time. It was so good to see my daughter again. She seems to have adjusted well and seems happy.

Sonar Chief...LOL!!
Comment by Sonar Chief on March 30, 2010 at 9:52pm
MaryK- That is the question of the century. Depending on what you reference, it means Gunner, Geographic, or Global. Other handy phrases are Self Taught Genius, and Second To God.

What does the "G" in STG stand for??? THANKS!

Lori -

'holds' are active duty time and are part of the enlistment time (it does not change the separation date at the end of his six years. So time between promotions, leave accruals, etc. do not change. As a 6 yr STG your son will stay at Great Lakes after boot camp for an indoc class and basic electronics
training (called ATT). The indoc session is 5 class days and ATT is 46 class days for an STG.(add weekends, hold times and holidays), He then will have
A school, C school, and Ops training in San Diego. A school is 9 weeks, the others depend on which system he is assigned. Our son had a PIR in April last year, he is currently in C school and does not expect to report to his fleet assignment before this summer. All of this time counts toward his 6 yr commitment.

Hi everyone. My son, Jake, is currently at bootcamp due to graduate 09 April 2010. I'm so excited for him and so is he! A quick question (I'm more of a reader than a poster) - do "holds" extend their enlistment length? I've read several times that a hold can be several months, how does that effect their enlistment. Obviously if Jake makes a career out of the navy, the holds wouldn't matter. More curious than anything else this early in the game!

By the way, he's a 6 year enlistment (STG - Surface)

Thank you for being here!

Donna -
as a 4yr STG he should go direct from Bootcamp to Point Loma for A school.
Whether a grad and go, or staying on the bootcamp side for a few days before travel or moving over to the school side on hold is hard to predict. He can have the cell phone, laptop, civilian clothes, etc. He may have some restrictions as to when he can be off base until he is classified phase 2. (our son did ATT,etc
at GL so was phase 2 immediately). A school itself is 9 weeks. Your sailor can experience holds before and after depending on how many are in the pipeline for the STG school.

The STG school is not on the main base(32nd street) or the sub base in San Diego, but in a small,separate waterfront location which has school and comand facilities only. There is lots of civilian shopping nearby and the NEX has necessities but is not anywhere near as large as the ones near the main base.

Also the transit system is excellent and you can get virtually anywhere in the city to enjoy its many attractions.

Check out some of the discussions above for more detailed information about the school and the San Diego experience. Your sailor is in for a treat. . .

Welcome aboard
