proudmom63,

I posted the one about the cake. I used Sherry's Cakes twice, once for my son and once for his buddy. It was $25 for the cake and $20 for delivery right to the gate. My son and his buddy both highly recommended the cake.

Here's the link if you need it:

www.sherryscakeshop.com

and phone number

(850) 433-4208

Good read from Navy Live, the Official Blog of the U.S. Navy!  Ombudsmen Make a Difference in the Lives of Navy Families

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on July 26, 2013 at 2:20pm

Also join the Facebook pages for the Ombudsmen and FRG.  These will be private pages, be sure you get added.  These are the best sources for news and getting answers to questions during deployments (just be sure to observe these OPSEC guidelines).

Great!  Once you get connected with everyone, you not only have peace of mind but can relax and start having fun!  Also, be sure to "Like" both VFA147 Argonauts on Facebook and USS Nimitz (CVN 68) on Facebook for updates, photos and videos - you never know who you'll see!  ;)

Marcy...thank you so much for all of the links...I emailed EVERYONE!  LOL

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on July 25, 2013 at 6:31pm

Hi Jennifer!  I did a little research; here are some links.  

Send your Ombudsman inquiry to their public affairs officer at PAO.vfa147@navy.mil.  

The squadron's website is http://www.vfa147.navy.mil/welcome.htm.  

It appears they are attached to USS Nimitz.

You may therefore want to join this group:  http://www.navyformoms.com/group/ussnimitzcvn68.  

You can be on the Nimitz Ombudsmen and USS Nimitz Family Readiness Group lists to keep up to date.  You will need to contact them  and give them information about you, your sailor (rate, rating) and your relationship, to be added.  

Ombudsman:  ussnimitzombudsman@yahoo.com  

FRG:  teamnimitz@yahoo.com  

Welcome from the USS Nimitz Ombudsmen and FRG teams:  http://www.nimitz.navy.mil/family-readiness.html

Looks like an exciting assignment; wishing you and your sailor all the best!
