USS Bataan LHD-5

Group for family members of Sailors who are on the USS Bataan (LHD-5)

Members: 224
Latest Activity: Sep 28

I decided to start this group to see who else may have a Sailor on this ship; or heading to this ship.

Granted, we may be a bit limited to what we can discuss openly online, but if nothing else, may be a good way to connect and network off-line as well.

Make sure to not disclose advance ship movements or other OPSEC issues.

My son is an FC2 on this ship.

Forever proud- Sorry, I just now saw your post. I don't think there are very many spouses in this group. I was referring to underways being extended and/or ship communication being cut off. And the pre-deployment craziness in general... All that fun stuff :p

Hi Goat - i'm not a wife, but a mom. What kind of frustration are you experiencing? Or have you worked it out already?
Comment by Goat on April 13, 2016 at 9:58pm
Any other wives in this group dealing with underway frustration?

My email is if you would like to communicate. I can take a photo of the old homestead for you. We shouldn't block up this posting with personal stuff. Stay in touch.

Son has been in for four years and is leaving. It can be lonely for a sailor without his family surrounding him. Does he have a car?

Comment by Joe&NatesMom on February 9, 2015 at 12:31pm
So true...taxes was the main reason for the move...I know he misses it, and we miss having the house to stay in when we visit NYC, but like you said, it's changed a lot.

We are on Spruce Lane. The neighborhood has changed over the years. We are considering going south.

Just noticed you are from New Hyde Park...My father and his family grew up on S 18th St! Just sold the "homestead" and moved to PA. still have family in Farmingdale & Floral Park

Not only do the sailors have to be aware of less than honest sales for cars, the repair shops are worse! And, what is so sad, most of the repair shops for cars are owned by  retired military or active military. They are not honorable and don't guarantee their work. We got ripped off by one (we had lent my son my car) big time. Car has never been the same since. I think they did shoddy work and wanted to make sure my son would have to keep coming back. It was owned by a wife and husband (military).
