Hi all: Just wanted to know that I so enjoy the commaraderie that is happening here. I miss this opportunity to be at the M&G's and to be close enough to be with you. Sure could use a cup of joe with another N4M :-}}

Karl (Dan's dad) was in the ER on Tuesday - cut his hand with a saw and broke two fingers. He will have to go to an orthopedic surgeon to have pins put in. Brandon (future son in-law) is home from his second visit to UCD in two weeks. He now has a medi bag with iv antibotics for the next six weeks to take care of the staff infection in his spine. He came home on Tuesday.

I had my physical, first one since the lay off (two and a half years). No more migraines, and my allergies have calmed way down since I haven't been in the old court house. Doc says that physically I'm doing better. Have to loose weight and exercise to keep the 'old lady' stuff at bay. Back to the weight loss. Glad that summer is around the corner - makes salads much more fun. Took Xray's of the right hand that has been painful for quite a while now. Just wanted you to know that you are all appreciated - have a great day and enjoy this sunshine.~S~

Hi Everyone: I receive dthis last night, and wanted to pass this on to you.

March 30, 2011 has been designated by the United States Congress as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.  I am so appreciative of this, as there are so many across our nation  who have given so much through their military service and they are so deserving of  the honor, respect, and recognition this designation brings.
 
As our country is facing forces throughout the Middle East and as the violence rages more out of control each day, we are continuously on our knees with intense concern and prayers for our loved ones serving today.  Our hearts are broken by our losses, our lives changed as our wounded return, our minds centered on all that our loved ones face on a daily basis.  To our prayers for each of them, I would like to ask us to call forth the memory of all who have served before them.
 
This is 'Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day', may we give honor and special words of thanks and welcome to each veteran that served in that war ~ may we remember each hero lost and wounded at that time ~ may we pray for those who still live the conflicts of that war each day of their lives.  And with that, may we too acknowledge our appreciation to each veteran of every war and conflict our nation has had.  Many are gone now, but we are able to live in the greatest nation on earth with all the benefits of liberty and freedom due to their bravery, commitment, and patriotism. 
 
This is a special day to remember, respect, and pray for ALL our veterans, past and present, as we think of our children who are serving today and honor our Vietnam Veterans who have returned home.
 
 
WELCOME HOME FROM VIETNAM:
 
 
 
With Prayers for Hope, Peace, and Healing

Velvet.....Yes, Fat City in still in Old Sac...There is a New Fat in Roseville that is wonderful!

 

Let us know when you come out way to shop.  We never need much of a reason to get together!!  There is always a couple of us around.

 

Good luck to you and your family and you take this new path.

Thank you LZ27.   I am orginally from Visalia and Sacramento is where I loved to go shop, so I think I will fit in just fine.   Is Fat City still in old town Sacramento?

It was my pleasure to have you all meet one of the lights of my life.  As we left, Bob asked, 'Mom, why do you always put me in these ackward situations?"  He is such a shy reserved guy!  Paymaster, I heard from dollyslaffn...she's been sick but has PROMISED to ship her pillowcases to me tomorrow.  Hopefully they will get to me pretty quickly so I can get them to you.

I know many of us have been following the drama unfold in Japan.  We received this note from our ombudsonman last night. 

 

The Surface Force Ombudsman Team is looking for assistance in collecting non-cash items to help boost the food locker to better support our displaced Navy families as they come through San Diego.  So far there are 35 families that have come to San Diego and are being well taken care of by Fleet and Family Service Center and other resource teams.  These families are staying in hotels and have arrived with whatever baggage they brought.

 

In order to help us better take care of our displaced Navy families, we are asking for your assistance.  If you would like to donate the below items to help out.  Some of our great Ombudsmen will be manning up the Force Ombudsman office on the following dates and times to accept these generous collections: 

 

Saturday, March 26th from 12noon to 2pm,
Tuesday, 29 March from 9am-12pm, and
Friday, April 1st from 10am-12pm.

 

Items needed to be collected:

   Personal care/toiletries
   Snacks for families with children
   Fresh fruit and vegetables (hotel has fridge/microwave)
   Baby diapers
   Baby formula
   Baby wipes
   Baby toys
   Microwavable foods
   Coloring books/crayons/toys/games for children
 
No cash can be accepted please.

 

Please bring your donations to the Force Ombudsman office aboard Naval Base San Diego, Bldg #265, across the parking lot from FFSC and up the hill from the commissary.

 

Saturday, March 26th from 12pm-2pm,

Tuesday, 29 March from 9am-12pm, and

Friday, April 1st from 10am-12pm
 
I did check and we can not just send money.  Like me I know several of us have families and dependents stationed in the San Diego area.  Perhaps these family members would be willing to do the shopping and deliever, if you are able to fund the purchases. 
I am shipping money to my DIL today and she will be doing my shopping for me.  Perhaps some of you can do the same? 
I just know how I would feel as a mother if it was my DIL and grandchildren that had to be displaced.  Not all familes have the means to swoop in and provide for their familes as Dave and I could if it was ours. God bless.
