Saw your son went to sub ball Where and when do fellows have a chance to meet potential girlfriends/wives. Son had relationship, but she backed out as he was getting closer to end of his nuke schooling.

Thanks William. I am getting a clearer picture of what his life will be like.

Laura, my son is in Groton now but lives off base in an apartment because he is an E5 so gets paid BAH.  On work days  they serve 3 meals on the sub and on duty days he sleeps on the sub too.   He earned the dolphins and nuke qualifications in the shipyard and was not sent out on another sub.

Nice to see other vets on here.  It to am a vet.  Air Force from 1977-1982.  Met my husband while serving.  He was AF also and is not a Navy Reserve Chaplain.  Our youngest son is the reason I am on this group.  He is on the Alexandria which in in dry dock  Our 2 sons are also reservist after serving active duty.  We truly appreciate all who serve.  Thanks!

mrsb, I was in from 1982-1987 I did shore and sea duty in Norfolk, Va. Sea duty I was stationed on the USS LY Spear a sub tender we took care of the fast attacks. I was a DP2 which the Navy doesn't have any more they were moved to Radiomen.

LoriM, you will love Wa when you go visit, my older brother was on a carrier out of Washington and I went to visit. It is beautiful with lots to do and see.

Comment by LoriM (div 337--Kevin's submom) yesterday

navyvet, congrats on your son's dolphins.

Laura, my son likes WA very much.  He said there is more to do and see there than Groton.  He has sent some pics of the sights and views, very pretty.  Looking forward to when we can go out there.  Not really sure when that will be.

Comment by mrsb yesterday

navyvet, congratulations to your son on earning his Dolphins!  That's great!!!  Your name tells us that you are a Navy Veteran, thank you for your service!!!  Please tell, what did you do, and where?

Comment by Laura yesterday
Thank you for the info.Lori Think I will know more than Alex before he gets to base! Does your son like WA?
Comment by LoriM (div 337--Kevin's submom) yesterday

Laura, My son is in Bangor, WA.  He lives in the barracks when not underway.  While the boat is in dry dock it is being manned by the gold crew but he is helping out with different things--he is on the blue crew.  I think they do sleep on the boat when they are on duty.  Not sure, will have to ask him.
