Well, it's been 5 years and my son is about to separate.
He's been going over the paper work but they seem to be going around in circles. He has about 45 days left so I assume there is still time to complete the paperwork.
Does anyone have advice on getting the paperwork done?
My son is returning from deployment in July and we're going down to see the ship come in. We both have drivers licenses that will let us get on base. My son is 15 and only has a school ID should I get him a US passport?
I've been struggling with sending packages to my son who is on a DDG.
It's relatively easy when you address the package yourself but using one of the online stores, it's more cross your fingers and hope.
My son's address looks something like this:
Their Division / Department
USS Bulkeley (DDG 84)
Unit 100319 Box 1* (they each have their own box number)

When my son gets back from his deployment his ship will be going into dry dock. I am curious as to what happens to the sailors when this happens. Are they moved to barracks, given shore duty, assigned to other ships or do they continue on the ship and continue as usual?
I went to Amazon and sent two DVDs to my son who is deployed in the Med. The package was refused in Il. I'm about to send him a Christmas package but now I'm afraid to send it because it contains a DVD. Any idea if it's because it came from Amazon or if it was the DVD that caused the package to be rejected?
Does anyone have experience traveling by train to Norfolk?
My son is traveling back to Norfolk after leave here in NJ. Wondering if there are any transfers on the line and what the service is like getting from the station to the base. Taxi? does the base run a shuttle?
Any help would be appreciated.
