Hey everyone...yes, speaking of goodie bags...(guess I saw it on a different group)...but it got me thinking. I did a bunch for the Truman last year, but because the Truman is home, how will we find out which ship everyone is making goodie bags for? I'm already starting to collect fun stuff!

Bernapet: We did meet as I was leaving the pier with my sailor!
What a zoo! We waited in the parking lot for 1 hour before we were able to leave. Thankfully the car air conditioning worked!
Had such a great visit with our sailor. His leave is next month. It will be good to have him home. Meanwhile, he and a friend just got an apartment off base. Exciting!
So glad it will be much easier to talk/text with him. Seems like those with computer/communication jobs on ship had much better chance to send emails, etc., back home.
I hear it will be quite some time before the Truman has a deployment again. Works for me!

Hi all - Happy Friday!

Lol Bernapet - that's funny with the phone ;-)

I hope you all are enjoying visits with your sailors - or getting ready to!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi all, loved seeing the pics with your pins! I met one mom quickly as we waited for our sailors to get off the ship. Wasn't it you 1bodyproof? Funny thing, when I was in the hotel in VA, and my sailor was asleep in the next bed, I actually caught myself not going to the restroom without my phone! I made myself crack up...that will be a hard habit to break! I will get my sailor back home in a few weeks too. So excited.

Thanks - B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM  I figured everyone is busy with their sailors being home.  My son comes home next week, I guess I will be MIA then too :)  Love the letter.

John & Yvonne - that is so nice that you do this for the sailors!  A big thank you to you & your husband for your continued support ;-)

wmg4 - sorry no one has responded to your question yet.  My son is out of the navy now & getting ready to start college and he has gotten help from the VA counselors at the college (he will be going to ODU eventually).  He should ask his command who he should talk to or if he has time take a drive over to ODU.  My son said they were very helpful over there.  It's great that he is starting classes while he is still in!

Hi all - Happy Thursday!

I borrowed this from "Letters to Bootcamp" on FB.

Have a good day!

Now that your sailors are back here safe and sound, my husband and I would like to let you know that we open our home on the weekends and invite them to come over for food and board games; mini golfing(which we did last Saturday evening) .  My husband spent 20 years in: 10 enlisted and 10 as a Navy Chaplain. So these sailors are in our hearts!. Please let them know about us. If any of you would like our cell number we can pm it to you. :)

Yvonne and John

Good Morning N4Ms...I have a question for anyone that has a child that started college classes while still on active duty.  My son is thinking of taking some classes at ODU and would like any advise on the process.  Thanks for the support!!
