NOTE:  Check with the sub's command before sending flash drives, to see if they're allowed.  My son's boat prohibits them.

Comment by Eaglefan yesterday
Momof4- I sent my son a package for Christmas that he said was awesome:)! He is a big sports fan, so I downloaded lots of highlights from his favorite teams using youtube downloader and put them on a flash drive. His church also videos their services so I was able to include some of those also. They love getting these little bits of home that we all take for granted.

momof4,

Please read the "Page" (another name for 'file') titled, "Halfway Boxes & Mail Drops."  You'll find it in the far, right-hand column.  We've given lots of info regarding these events

Mail drops are sometimes a shoebox-sized container, or perhaps a gallon Ziploc, or even just a 9x12 FLAT manila envelope and the Ombudsman or FRG (Family Readiness Group) for your son's boat has the specifications for his package.

My son moved from Groton to San Diego in April.  He is still working toward his Dolphins.  He has not been on a deployment yet, and I was wondering if you could give me some ideas on a halfway box.  Not sure where to start! We really appreciate any advice on what is most beneficial to them.  Thanks so much!

Karen congratulations to your son on earning his Dolphins! 

Wow, the weather looks pretty crazy according to the Weather Channel! Wishing you all well and that you don't lose power! Stay warm and safe!

Johanna my son has duty tomorrow a.m. at 6 a.m. too. He lives in Norwich about 20 mins from base and drives a rather small car....hope he can actually get there. Are we allowed to say which sub our sons are assigned to? I mean OPSEC allows is it ok? I was going to ask if by chance they are on same sub in Groton.

Thanks for the info Johanna...I bet the southerners are at least a little bit in awe of the snowfall.:-)

J's/S My son is in Groton. The bases closed at 4:00 today. Unfortunately my sailor has duty tomorrow morning at 6 AM for 12 hours so he is considered essential personnel...;( It's already snowing, but it's all good fun!!
