The website is (not sandiegolive; note the "u" instead of "a"). There are various aspects available. There is a multiview button that gives you different views at once but my computer can't do this. I'm kind of bouncing around. No sighting yet.

NancyJo I've not heard about the webcam. How do you do that?

Comment by NancyJo (CVN70) on June 4, 2015 at 11:34am

B'sNuke, Bravo Zulu to your sailor! Sounds like he is doing well. That's gratifying, isn't it? Hope you get out there soon.

I have the San Diego Harbor web cam up at my desk anticipating the homecoming of the Carl Vinson any minute. I can't be there in person, but I want to watch. It's an awesome sight. The sailors will be in their dress whites as they "man the rails." The stand an arm's length apart all along the deck. One of the first groups off is new daddy's. There were 80 babies on this deployment. Such excitement. They will finally be home!

Hi all - Happy Almost Friday!!!

I'm a happy momma today - got an email from my sailor last night (his ship is on an underway right now).  He's been busy & things are going well.  He has a big test this morning, then he has to board and then he'll be in division!  All his hard work is paying off ;-)

1proudmama - I will take you up on that offer!  At some point over the next 4 yours we will make it to VA and I would love to meet you!  I just need to figure out how to make it happen with Sailor's crazy schedule.

Along for the Ride - my sailor finished PS right before Christmas (2013) and then went to Ballston Spa.  It worked out that he had almost a month before he had to report so he was able to come home to CA for a visit.  It's hard to say for sure what will happen until it gets closer to the actual time.  Yes they do go on stand-down but someone still has to stand watch....if he goes to NY they give them time to get moved.  Whole thing just depends on the needs of the Navy! 

Comment by Along for the Ride on June 4, 2015 at 10:02am

I know it seems early to be asking about this, but I have a question about the holiday stand-down. My daughter's sailor graduates from A school tomorrow (!!!!) and anticipates starting Power School mid-July and graduating from Power School just before Christmas. Last year, he was able to come home for the whole stand-down but I don't know how it normally works. Is that liberty? Or leave? Does he need to have two weeks of leave banked to come home? Do they even let them take two weeks or does someone have to stay on base and stand watches and whatnot? I know there are a million what-ifs and nothing can be known in advance (what if he's "grad-and-go" to Prototype in NY?), but generally speaking, what would be likely?

I ask this because I'm pretty sure my daughter won't come home for Christmas break if her sailor can't come home!

Comment by 1proudmama/EM/USSLincoln/CVN72 on June 3, 2015 at 4:02pm

Well B if you ever make it out here I'll be glad to host you nd or show you our great state. He really doesn't come home anymore to see us its more about his friends, but I do get a hug and usually a house full of boys. Some days I don't feel so blessed. lol. Glad I didn't post last name not even sure if he's a nuke yet so will hold off until I learn that and what state he's from so I can give a little more clues in guessing last name. lol

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM2(CVN75) on June 3, 2015 at 11:27am

Hi all - Happy Wednesday!

Co-twin - the treats sound yummy!

1proudmama - that's so nice that your sailor is close enough to come home for quick visits!  I soooo wish we were closer so we could see ours more often - takes a lot of planning to get from CA to VA!  We'll make it happen eventually ;-)

Yep, you don't want to post the last name....maybe you could just put the 1st & last letter of the name & if they are on here they'll figure it out!  (I think that would be ok....)

I'm planning a trip to Mammoth for the end of the month.  We used to go every summer for a week (when both sailor son was in high school & then when college son was in high school).  Haven't been in 4 years and really looking forward to it!

Comment by Donna (Eric EM3) on June 3, 2015 at 10:09am

Tina41 - Thank you for that, it's nice to know that I'm not the only one.  I did get a little more info out on him last night (general info).  I guess I ask about it so much he found a way to generally talk to me about school if not for a second in out conversations.  I'll hold onto those moments and respect his decisions not to talk about it.  I guess it's harder that I thought to let him grow up and become a man.  LOL  Apron strings!!

I know my sons roommates last name but didn't want to give a shout out if not suppose to list last names.

boywondersmom- he is settling in, hasn't met his roommate yet must be on watch or leave. When he left he was like see you this weekend; so yeah I think he will be coming home as often as he can. I saw a picture of a group completing indoc was that the picture you are referring to. He goes to some safety meeting today not at base, we are  wondering how far from base he is at. He said about half an hour from where he said it took him about 30 minutes from where he checked in at, we are both guessing that is where base is at. Luckily he has a car, wonder how those who don't have one get back and forth. But I'm guessing most have cars at this point, at least the Nukes.Hoping he is with fellow Nuke. I'll keep in touch with you and hopefully if he has the desire or time he can come to fleets landing and chill with our family june 14-21 is when we will be down there.

1proudmama, my son is at the barracks at Huntington. He was trying for Portsmouth, didn't get it. But now that he's been there a month he said that while he's still trying to get to Portsmouth he's getting used to Huntington. Thank God! I was so worried for him that first week! He seems to be adjusting well. He just finish his INDOC last Friday and now just waiting for clearance badge to get onboard. CVN72 just posted a picture on their FB page. My son is in it. Makes me so proud. So happy for your son that he got Portsmouth. He's so close to home! He could go visit every weekend if he wants. :)
