USS Bataan LHD-5

Group for family members of Sailors who are on the USS Bataan (LHD-5)

Members: 209
Latest Activity: Mar 9

I decided to start this group to see who else may have a Sailor on this ship; or heading to this ship.

Granted, we may be a bit limited to what we can discuss openly online, but if nothing else, may be a good way to connect and network off-line as well.

Make sure to not disclose advance ship movements or other OPSEC issues.

My son is an FC2 on this ship.

Lisa, if you requested through facebook, be sure to check you message section. When you get to your message page, you'll see your messages, but there's also a section called "other" messages. Check that list to see if a message is there.

In other news, did y'all see that the Bataan helped rescue some Turkish sailors from their cargo ship which had run aground? WTG, Bataan!

Has anyone hear anything from the ombudsmen yet?

Thanks Juliefrog68.  I just got approved.  I will look there.

Everyone yhats not, needs to be on the Family Support for USS Bataan Facebook page. Its a closed group maintained by the Omsbudsmen. You have to tell them your relationship to your Sailor. They have posted lots of pictures and videos.

I was not able to be there today either but I sure hope I am there for the homecoming. I did get a text this morning from my son that said I love you. It made me cry but I was glad I got it.

Did anyone take pictures when they were leaving??  I did not get to go see my son off.
