    #2 Son Graduated Navy Basic Yesterday!

    I just got back from Chicago and had to post. My #2 son graduated from Navy Basic yesterday and he held RPOC. It was an amazing, emotional ceremony - Navy does it right! He's off to Pensacola for A School and hopes he can finish via the "accelerated" route (rank is the carrot).

    #1 will go to Tampa for MEPS as soon as he can schedule two consecutive days off (going for OCS with Navy or Army).

    So tell me, how do your sons like knowing their ranking? Are the ranks set, or can your second favorite work his way up to #1?

    All joking aside, congrats on having two kids headed for success. I wish them both the best in their endeavors.

    Congrats! I'm a #1 son, only because I was the first born!

    You have a right to be proud, as do they! Stay safe!

    Congrats from a Navy Vet here!

    I assume that since his A school is in Pensacola that he is an Airdale? What is his rate? And, when he graduates, is he going to be a "Push Button" PO3? (Does he automatically attain the rank of E-4 upon graduation?)

    Tell him Congrats from this Air Force Vet here.

    #2 means 2nd Born, not ranking as far as favorite. Charlie Chan use to refer to all his kids that way.
