Thanks for sharing. If you don't mind sharing, did your son get an "A" school or know where he'll be stationed? Sounds like you had a great time!

Is he an IT? Or rather, would he have been one before ratings disappeared?

We were probably at the Navy Lodge at the same time as you.

No, he is an AE (I think) aviation electronics. Were you just visiting or did you have someone in boot camp too?

No, we were just visiting during our Thanksgiving trip to Illinois. My husband, a Senior Chief, used to instruct there.

Since rating titles are being phased out and replaced, people eventually won't be identified by their rating's two-letter prefix anyway.

This is exactly correct...

I retired from the Navy and was an AT for 11 of my 26 years in the Navy.

Eh. There are a million rating codes, and they're all changing due to a totally different system now, anyway. No biggie.
