Still limited to 2 guests maximum.
Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

My name is Birdie and I have a son that is currently on the USS Abraham Lincoln.
He is an airman with VRC-30 Providers, Det 2.
