Marty & Christi, “Welcome to the Blue”. I am glad that you have joined us. I started Air Force Dads to help support and encourage parents and family members, girlfriends and boyfriends, of young men and woman who have or are going to join the Air Force. Please feel free to look around the site and get involved with the groups and discussions that are going on. Maybe start one of your own. I have two sons and both of them are in the military. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. My youngest joined the Air Force over 4 years ago. He is slated to deploy this Spring. Please thank Rob for his up and coming serves to this great country from an old Vietnam vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man. Please feel free to ask any question you have about the Air Force, we are here for you.

Christi, you are very welcome. Having sent both of my boys off into the military I know how nerve racking it is for the parents, family and friends. My parents did not have anything like this when I left home for the Air Force and I am only too happy to provide a forum for all of you to meet ask questions, answer questions and cry on each others shoulders. I am so glad that you have joined us and you too can use this site and enjoy the friendships that can come from being here.

Hi Marty and Christi! My son is also going in as an enlisted this summer. He graduates high school in May and then off he goes! I am so proud and so sad at the same time. This site has been very helpful to me and I hope it is for you as well.

Marty & Christi, I wanted to stop by and say hello. It won’t be long now and Rob will be headed for the “Big Blue”. Is he getting ready with physical and academic stuff? It really does help to go in physically fit. Then you can go and have fun rather then having to work so hard to get up to speed. How are you guys holding up?

Sgt. Terry, I'm not worried about Rob's fitness. He loves the gym and is proud of always being near the top of every firefighter fitness test -- fire academy, state division of forestry, volunteer dept., etc. He'll be challenged by the academics, but it won't be for lack of studying and trying. He always puts in the effort and he's proud of his knowledge. But he's not the born college man that others are. I think he'll do fine in Air Force training -- Marty

I tell everyone that has a child going into the military to stay close to the recruiter. Make sure that Rob is telling the recruiter everything even the 4 pounds overweight. The recruiter is there to help. I also see that you have joined the BMT group. EG has put some good information up there. We will get some more information for you. Please do not hesitate to ask question. This is a new experience and we are here to help in any way we can. I thing that I did with both my boys, David when he went to BMT and Paul when he went to RTS, was my wife and I sent a letter everyday the mail ran. This will be Robs life line to the sanity of the outside world. He will look forward to mail call. He will want to hear form you both, as well as any other family and friends.
By the way a party is a great idea. We had one for both the boys when they left. Have some paper a pens available and encourage everyone to write something to Rob and than put the in a memory notebook for him to read later after BMT. Take lots of pictures at the party too and put them in the notebook as well.
Okay enough for now I will talk to you soon.

Hi, Guys. No, Wes still hasn't heard anything. He is getting frustrated and so am I. He is just wasting time at this point. Waiting to leave, school is out, no one will give him a job because he has no idea how long he will be here. It is all starting to get him down. He signed up last fall and was lead to believe he would be leaving as soon as his "available" date, but the new recruiter is saying it could be awhile. I don't understand. I am so glad Rob isn't going through this. What are some of the things you are doing to prepare for his departure?
