You need to be a member of USS Harry S. Truman to add comments!

Comment by Carol Ann yesterday

Just to let you ALL know I pray every night and every morning for the Truman and all the members of of military serving. It's a habit that I got into when my son was serving and one I will never break. I came away from this experience with  a completely different appreciation for the military and their loved ones and what all is sacrificed for our freedom. It has been a good experience for me!

Coach Sheila I had no idea your sailor was the same. Gosh it has been so long since I have thought of units that I forget which one my daughter is in. Is your son working days or nights this week? My daughter is on day shift. I have heard most of those saying but I always love your enthusiasm. Thanks for the prayers and Carol Ann thank you too. I know she has to do this on her own, with Gods help of course but she asked me to pray so I figured "where 2 or 3 are gathered in God's name", she will do well.
Comment by Coach Shelia yesterday
Carol Ann what a Blessing for you to be there for your son! I'm so proud of him! Once again...tell him thanks for his service to Our Country! We need you here for your wisdom! Too Tall Joan, I didn't know we had AO's? LOL I ask my son frequently how everything is...of course he says "everything's fine Mom"!My son is G-1 unit! IYAOYAS...Keep Calm and Drop Bombs...Warheads on Foreheads...Keep Calm and Love An AO...! I made the last one up myself, but never put it on a t-shirt from! I will be praying for your daughter! They probably know each other! I have to constantly remind myself that if problems arise, he has to deal and learn from them. It's been real tough to let go and not "coach" him so much! LOL These wonderful young women and men we've raised to be Sailors know we care! HOOYAH!

Thanks Too Tall. I will pray for your daughter to pass this one with flying colors.Good luck with your teaching year ahead and thank you for doing such an honorable job and for helping make a difference in the lives of so many. I miss talking to you ladies!

Hello coach Sheila & Carol Ann & everyone else
I am doing well but my sailor could use some extra prayer. She took a test for one of her AO qualifications & didn't pass so she got in trouble & I believe has to retake this coming Monday. I've been praying for a clear mind for her & good study habits.
Carol Ann I'm glad you stayed a part of us & to hear about your son as he starts this new chapter of life. I hope the military does him right & he gets his partial disability but it does sound like they will. Sounds like he is very focused & ready for school. Keep us posted
My new school year started this week and the kids come back on Monday. Looking forward to my 12th year in education as a teachers aide in the high school & making a difference in the kids lives

Hello Coach Sheila!  My son has an apt. up in Columbus and is busy getting that cleaned and set up. We hauled the big stuff up last weekend (furniture) and I cleaned his kitchen. My husband helped him set up his bed and we even took out the windows and cleaned them cuz they were filthy! I went shopping and bought a bunch of things he would need--toaster, bath rug, bath mat, shower curtain and liner, towels for bath and kitchen, some kitchen utensils, etc that kind of thing. He was very grateful and said Mom this is like Christmas! Anyhow he has been up there the past two days cleaning and setting up. Said he bought $125 worth of food to start and then the power went out. It was out for almost 7.5 hours but putting bags of ice in his fridge with the food made it all good. He is excited and school will start Wed. Last week he and his big sis, her 2 kids and  her boyfriend all went camping at Assateague Island for the week. She left Fri to come back home. He drove separately and went over to VA to visit with a couple of his Navy buddies for the wkend. Said it was good to see them. Hoped to get together with more but some had other plans or watch. He has been going to VA for follow up physical, test, etc. which is normal procedures when you get out. Said he was going to transfer to Columbus branch of VA. He told me there is a possibility he may qualify for a partial disability as he injured his knee and back fitting the ship last time it was in port before they went out. He has been suffering with pain in both and having some issues. I was surprised they are even considering this.

Thanks too tall Joan, yes, I got all the info I needed and the information I have has raised some concerns in my mind regarding the health and wellbeing of ALL members of the military. I just got off the phone with my sailor and he is okay and on board the ship. I heard his voice, he's okay so now I can concentrate on getting my pinched nerve fixed. Brightest Blessings to all the Truman family.

Thanks catsmom & julie01 thanks for your hugs and kind words. My summer part time job work schedule has been crazy. I can't wait for school to start in less than 3 weeks and go back to my normal classroom aide job.

Good evening navy sisters,I hope all is well with everyone. And hope the Moms had a ball with they Sailors visits. Guess what, I finally had a 8 x 10 pic made & framed, to hang up on my wall of Truman sailing with the Rainbow while there were at sea during the underway!

This pic (keepsake) is so breath taking & calming and the best part; my Sailor son was on board at the time this pic was taken! (your Sailor's too) na-na-na! hahahah! :) Peace & Love
