Any faimlies with sailors on carriers? My son is just going to report to the Nimitz... just thought it would be nice to get to know other parents whose sailors are on them and how much contact do you get?

I saw this in one of my facebook groups – “if you have Verizon as your phone carrier they have rolled out a program that automatically takes the Unknown and Potential Spam calls and sends them to your voicemail. This has already been placed on your account. You can call Verizon or use the My Verizon app to opt out of this services. If you have the app you can go to Contact Us and choose We’ll Call You and put Other as reason and choose Call Me as soon as possible.”
This is especially important if you have an SR in bootcamp or a sailor deployed. You don’t want to miss any calls!
I don't know about other carriers but I can vouch for this happening with Verizon as I have Verizon.
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 pillowcase project has committed to mailing a pillowcase to everyone by January! If you want to be involved in that please let me know. I am not sure the address should be put 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.
Hello all, my sailor is no longer on a carrier, he is now doing shore duty for his re-enlistment, therefore I will be leaving this group. Thank you all for support and information.
Hi All got word that the USS Theodore may be making a Port shift in some years to come, Hello Washington!
NavyBrat thank You, he is doing very well, loves Coronado! No deployment until 2019. as he just returned in May.
Glad to hear he's doing fine, Phoenixmom.
They'll probably move families and their vehicles on board the carrier after returning to the original home port. They have to pick up everyone first including the staff stationed at the original port.
Jayne Hi didnt know what I was able to post but took a chance. Happy for you! Navyhusband2018 I really dont know Navy is not saying when this will take place because of ship movement. I would think she would be able to find out info on all that since being there. Reach out to Anti M she is really good at all of that Anti M click on her name it will take you to her my page and leave her a message. Hope you get your answers answered.
