My son is stationed in Kings Bay. He is on the Alaska - blue crew. How about your sailor?
My son will be going to Kings Bay in January 2014. He will be on the USSBN Wyoming. Gold Team. Hooyah!
would love to talk with anyone already in Kings Bay.
My son has been stationed in Kings Bay on the USS Wyoming for over 2 years. He's on the blue crew. He lives in Florida (just across the line) and really enjoys the beach and fishing during down time. My husband was also stationed out of Kings Bay nearly 30 years ago. He says the area has changed quite a bit. Will your son be living on base? It seems the sailors really do become each others second family and support each other well. As the mother of a sailor, find out who the ship's ombudsman is. If you can't get that information the one for the blue crew is: Sarah at email@example.com I'm sure she could connect you with the one for the gold crew. The ombudsman are really good about providing families with updates, guidance and support as well as gather little boxes of gifts, moments, photos, snacks, from families that are then packed on the ship before the crews depart.
Thank you so much Martha for the info.. yes my son will be living on base//He is Gold Crew Wyoming . He is a STS..3rd class Petty Officer. He will be leaving Groton, Connecticut to Kings Bay at the end of January.
We have been blessed to see him almost every weekend as we live 2 hours away. Next year will be quite the change! We hope to drive down to Kings Bay with him. I will contact the Blue Ombudsman about the Gold. Thank you so much, I am sure I will have more questions as we move along. Thanks again. Doreen (985cat)
