GREAT! We would love to have you participate! Our new adoption will be announced on Molly's Adopt A Sailor page on Jan. 1. Actually this will be our biggest group that we have adopted to date! Their "wish list" is long and covers just about everything!! LOL! Some things they are requesting include: beef jerky, sunflower seeds, popcorn, gum, skittles, ramen noodles, oreos, hot sauce, toothpaste, deodorant, and socks. So keep an eye out for sales, clearance bins, and the ever-popular Dollar Stores. Can't wait to meet you! Pat

Welcome Patti!! Always a pleasure to meet a fellow Navy Mom.
My Son Tripper has been attached to the Enterprise going on 4 years now. This next deployment will be his last, as he has chosen to come back home with 4 years of Reserves left to serve. I plan to make the homecoming this next year so that I can meet these great ladies that have gotten me thru so much. Circustance kept me from makeing the trip last July, but I am going to make it this next time, the Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise!!
Again Welcome, and I have to say that our Rare Rae is the best!!!
