JKHarris: Congrats to your daughter on her new position. Just cuz she is moving to another ship doesn't mean you can't check back with your sister on the Truman every now and then. Obviously I still do and will continue to do so as I am  still interested in what happens to you all! Speaking of which--LindaD I am so sorry your son is in distress! Hopefully he is doing better as i write this. you have my prayers and concern. It is hard to be far away and have other obligations that you can't just up an leave when something happens. I am sure you are conflicted over this. hugs to you and l know you have a whole lot of well wishers on here. TooTall: That's an awful lot of rain in such a short time! We have had a very rainy summer here in OH and also cooler than normal which is fine by me. Take care ladies! We are all fine at my end. My son is doing well adjusting to the college life. He stayed up in Columbus last wkend-said Mom I can't come home every wkend. He was planning on going to OH St game (not sure if he got in), going to a gun show and possibly to a shooting range he says. So he is keeping himself occupied and finding things to do there.  Take care all! I will continue to pray for the families of the Truman and it's sailors!

Thank you carrie. I spent most of Saturday evening on the phone/email/text with both my sailor and Shannon from OMB, Thank you Shannon. We all agreed that it would be best for him to be transported to base medical; they took him Sat. night; so I know he's safe. I'm primary caregiver for my 101 year old mother so I can't just drop everything, pack up my car and take a road trip to Norfolk. So, I'll be staying home and waiting for the next phone call. My intuition tells me his Navy vet uncle is watching over him and he's getting the help he needs.

lindaD I have been praying for your sailor and for you. (((Hugs)))
Thankful for Gods protection over our sailors today. Almost 5 inches of rain in 4 hours...crazy. My daughter said she was so scared driving home from work

LindaD so sorry to hear this news, I've sent prayers up for your sailor son, you and your FAM! I fly into Norfolk on last thru and will be here for a couple of more days! I haven't seen my sailor son son in 15 months, I had this strong feeling I need to get here ASAP! These Sailors all go thru so much challenges that cause so much stress, we has parents have to hold, hug tightly, kiss them, how much we LOVE and miss them also let them know no matter what we are here for them period! Linda everything is going out find for him once you arrived and give him huggs from me also let him know all of the navy mom's love him just like our own son! Go in Peace and leave something for GOD to do! Peace and Love

My sailor is in distress and I've been having a lot of trouble with phone numbers to the Navy. One thing I just discovered is that the phone number for Ombudsman Shannon as listed in the August newsletter is wrong; the last 4 digits are 7658 they should be 7568.

I made that emergency call to the correct number and getting ready to go to Norfolk tomorrow.

Sending prayers and well wishes to your Sailor, you and family today and forever JKHarris! Sending prayers and well wishes to ALL your Sailors, you and families! I appreciate you ALL! You've answered so many of my questions. We're ALL on the same matter where the ship is! Carrie...noone gets kicked out! Take care everyone! "Non sibi sed patriae"-"Not for Country but Self"...(Unofficial Navy Motto) I have researched so much Navy stuff! My son has no idea how much I've learned either! LOL

Hello everyone. My sailor has been reassigned to a new ship. I'm excited because she is excited. This is a bitter sweet moment for me because I look forward to the love,support, great comments and conversations from all of you. Best wishes to you all and your sailors. Thank them for their service for me. I will continue to pray for the crew aboard the Truman. I will join the group of moms on the ship she has been assigned to once I get the ok. Again that ,you all. Much love to you.
