**PLEASE REMEMBER OPSEC AND DON'T POST SPECIFIC DATES REGARDING SHIP MOVEMENT**
Dates may only be discussed AFTER they have happened.
Here's the shipping info. Remember you will need the specific box # from your Sailor. ****THIS IS A NEW ADDRESS****
There have been questions from some about seeing the ship off - where's the best location, can they get on the pier? Anyone know?
Make sure your sailor gets a "Ship to Shore" AT&T calling card. They can be purchased on the ship and can be reloaded. You will need the pin # from the card. Call 1.800.569.2018 to reload - minimum $25. ***UPDATE 12/29/15*** AT&T will be issuing new cards as of 2/1/16. You can continue to use any minutes you have on your old card after that date, but you will NOT be able to reload that card after 2/1/16. Also, until 1/11/16 if you reload your card they are giving 25% more minutes for FREE!
Here's the link to the USPS "Click & Ship". You can get free boxes/tape etc. from them too.
And here's a link for tips on sending care packages:
***WELCOME HOME USS TRUMAN - JULY 13, 2016***

I also heard the Virginian Pilot (newspaper) would be streaming it online. Here's a link to their site:
This is the link to the Pilot's main Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/virginianpilot/?fref=ts, they will be doing a live feed of Homecoming Day. You have to "like" their page to access. : )
