Our sailors will moving on to the 2nd phase of "Nuke" School. Indoc starts on Feb.9th and classes on the 13th. Since we will all be in the "same boat" together, I thought it will be nice to share our experiences. Lets continue to support our sailors and each other!
have you heard anything about your son starting prototype?
Yes he and everybody else ( pratically) are starting Monday AM. He says a very very large class. Some that graduated in Jan from power school are included.
that is what my son told me. i am wondering if it is going to be harder for them since so many are starting. please stay in touch!
Talked to my son last night. They have already had a test. He passed. Yeah! He is concerned about how difficult it is going to be to get checked out with so many kids in the class. I guess it is 12 hours days. I forget to ask if they have weekends off. He also seems to be lacking the confidence he can do this as we got further into the conversation. I tried to assure him he was he was smart and he will succeed if he organizes his time and ask questions. Funny one sailor he was friends with in power school and went to BS has already graduated and been assigdd to a boat . I hadn't really realized how maqch time has gone by since they graduated power school.
A lot of time has gone by, my son takes his boards at 14:30 TODAY. He's already been assigned to a boat. He'll be moving to his first real duty station next week. They have come so far since Basic. Your son will do fine, but will ave to be assertive in getting his quals done as there are always a lot of sailors vying for time for signatures. As you told him, he just has to organize and ask questions.
