Hi all - Happy Wednesday!

too tall Joan - someone had mentioned NavyRackPacks for the blackout curtain so I've looked at their website - just trying to find out if the Truman command allows them. For the times my son has stayed on the ship he's just been using a sleeping bag. He said if it's warm he can just sleep on top of it or if it's cold he'll crawl inside.  I'll have to ask him about the mattress topper....don't want to get it if he won't use it!

BNukesMom my daughter just uses the issued sheets plus she uses a "rag" blanket that we made" when she gets to her berthing she is so tired she just falls in and sleeps. I have heard others talk about the black out curtain and I think they got them through Amazon but not positive on that on.
Catsmom definitely a matter for prayer for both of them and for you too.

Hi all - Happy Tuesday!

My son doesn't stay on the ship much (yet!) so he uses a sleeping bag when he is there.  He said it's a little uncomfortable which is why I thought the mattress topper might be a good idea.  I've seen the memory foam ones online so I might send him one of those.  Then it's just a matter of convincing him to take it from his apartment to the ship!  A mom on another group mentioned black-out curtains.  Anyone have any info on those?

B'sNukeMoM, I ordered sheets for my daughter on the last deployment from the navy store.  She loved them.  Much better than the ones she was given.  No mattress topper, but no complaints from her after.

Too tall Joan, yeah she took him back..he threatened to kill himself. He is going to Pray it helps.
Comment by Catsmom on Tuesday
My daughter had one for hers, while they were deployed. I made sheets for her rack to fit the depth. She loved it.

Hi all - Happy Monday!

Can anyone tell me if they have purchased a mattress topper for their sailors berthing area?  I'd like to get one for sailor for when he's on the ship but would like some feedback....any suggestions?

BoomMom I have toured the ship but never ate on it. Happy for you

Catsmom I didn't realize they were back together. I hope all works out for the best. Being a grandma is WONDERFUL. Not our sailor daughter but we have our first grandchild & she is 3 months old. Congrats to you all & please keep us posted. You have our support on here

Wow Catsmom!  Congrats to you on the GMA club.  My hubby is going to be soooooo jealous!  He wants to be a GPA so bad LOL.  Hopefully this will be the nudge that her hubby needs to step up and be the kind of loving husband (and father) she deserves.... Good luck and keep us posted!
