I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
My sister has over 35 years in Navy. She's done many interesting things and literally traveled all over the world. The Navy has taken care of her and I hope my son has similar experiences and opportunities (although she's an officer and he's enlisted.)
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Yes, well there'll be prayers for a lot of people traveling a lot of different ways to meet up with that ship. :-) They have been working hard and as I'm sure your son is ready to come back state side, mine is too. Just continuing prayers for their safety on the trip home. This feels like countdown to PIR weekend. :-) That was fun too.
Sorry, I don't recognize your N4M name. I didn't notice that excel added up in the numbers when I placed a new name. It's a typo of sorts. The address should be CVN68 and 96620-2820 for Malcolm. Sorry to confuse you.
Yes, the link I had was just for USS Nimitz. I googled it, so that might be one way to find them. The pictures I found were on flickr.com so there's another place to look I don't know for fact, but assume that they'd have a "search" for the site. Sorry I didn't have the exact answer. Good luck on your search, if worst comes you can always have your sailor get copy from the media folks who took the pictures.
