USS Bataan LHD-5

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

Members: 217
Latest Activity: on Sunday

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.

I know the FRG is trying to put together bags for single sailors but haven't heard about anything else. Are you on the FB page? Last deployment there were people giving out a box of goodies as they got off. Protein bars etc.

Does anyone know if there will be a group of Navy Mom's at the homecoming giving Free Hugs and Cookies to the sailors and marines when they get off the ship?

I just received the paperwork for Tiger Cruise via email from my son. I do have questions though. He isn't sure what happens, but thinks the "cruisers" join the ship as it approaches Norfolk???

@Forever proud & thisgirl97 - as far as I know the paperwork for the Tiger cruise has already been submitted. You may want to ask your sailor about it. Keep in mind that you won't be eligible for a tiger cruise if you are a boyfriend or girlfriend/Fiance(e)/wife or husband of a sailor.

I am on both FB pages and have not had any trouble. Not sure what the problem is

Comment by Forever proud on July 27, 2014 at 12:38pm
Thisgirl97 are you going thru the FB page? That is where i had to go to join in. And Whodamom i did find the pages again. I had to "expand" the Group category as they had just fallen to the bottom of the list.
