Great article regarding Navy Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt:
Nice coverage on the return of the USS Lincoln:
The USS Lincoln made history today as it leaves on deployment with the first ever woman to lead a nuclear carrier in US Navy history.
BZ to Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt.
Fair Winds and Following Seas!
My sailor is on his way to the ship. What would you recommend as a must for him to bring that would not be obvious?
Hello! Heads at Ease received permission from the command and the Lincoln legal department to mail pillowcases to the ship. We mail in "waves" and we have 2 completed so far, which is 1,607 pillowcases. We will be mailing every week for the next 3-4 weeks. If you would like to help with this, please contact me. We need sewers, fabric, $ to buy fabric and $ for shipping. I have attached some photos of the pcs already sent. THANKS!
Ok so right now the command for the Lincoln has put out a post that they do not want packages sent to the ship - I guess they are getting inundated with people wanting to help and they are concerned about getting a bunch of boxes that are just being randomly sent. They are trying to figure out a way that will best handle the situation. Once that is confirmed I'll pass on the info.
I think they were surprised at how many Navy moms/families would want to get involved!
Heads at Ease will be mailing pillowcases for everyone. I know that Maryellen has already posted about it. I am not sure that the address should be on here.
The Lincoln's deployment has been extended again. The information below is from the Ombudsman of the Bush:
Hi all one of our sister ships is in need. They have been out to sea since April and haven’t had a port call in a very long time.....
⚓The USS Abraham Lincoln was scheduled to return home before Halloween. They have already been at sea for over 8 months and have been extended again until sometime spring 2020.
As you can imagine, this news has been hard on the Sailors and they could use some love to get them through this seemingly never ending deployment. They are all feeling extremely down about spending Thanksgiving and Christmas at sea.
Their families have put out an SOS to all they can reach, to help boost their morale and let them know that people from all over think about them and care, they are asking for care packages and/or holiday cards be sent to the ship.
Do not feel obligated to participate, but if you are compelled, the suggested care package items are:
Toiletries (for women too)
Non-chocolate candy (chocolate rarely survives the shipping process) Games (cards, Uno, old school stuff) Used video games (they have a variety on consoles onboard) Used movies (DVD’s) Books Cards (especially from kids) Tuna packets Seeds (sunflower in shells and other) Girl Scout cookies Energy Bars Peanut Butter Fruit snacks Goldfish crackers Store bought snacks Stocking stuffer type small gifts All the other usual care package items....
I recommend using flat rate boxes to reduce shipping costs or send something via Amazon Prime.
Please send me a private message on here if you would like the address to send a package.
