The Molly's Adopt a Sailor group has announced its August adoptees, and it's the junior enlisted (E4 and below) of none other than our own USS Iwo Jima! And yours truly is 'mom of the month' :) My sailor is detached from the Iwo and is now in Italy, so no conflicts there by the way. I'm sure you're already sending care packages, but this is a special month and I encourage you to come check out the N4M group Molly's Adopt a Sailor project.
The Iwo sailors have requested personal care items, snacks and homemade treats, and GAMES! This could be a great time to get your friends and community involved in your sailor's deployment. Here's the link to the details about this month's project: Fun and GATOR Games with the USS Iwo Jima! Molly's is a tax-deductible 501(c)3 by the way :)
Find a "packing party" in your area, or host one! Boxes will all be mailed at the same time during the last week of the month. Here's a little video I did to introduce our sailors to the Molly's group, hopefully your sailor is there!!
Watching the video...made me feel closer to my son..a few tears here and there..It was beautiful. Tried really hard to look for him but didn't find him, but knowing where he is at and some of his daily activities made me feel better....Thanks for sharing....
