Dear Families and Friends of TRUMAN,

After nine months of being forward deployed, seven of which were in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility, we are finally in the home stretch, transiting back to Norfolk and returning to our loved ones!

Our final port visit was in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, which was a new and exciting place for most of the crew. It was a wonderful opportunity to experience a new culture, touring the many sites and enjoying the popular cuisine, particularly the various paella dishes. We interacted with the very hospitable locals, playing in friendly basketball and soccer games, as well as assisted in several community relations projects. Your Sailors and Marines represented themselves well, and the visit was also the perfect opportunity to rest, recharge and focus on the remaining leg of deployment after a month of diligent and productive operations at sea.

As part of our homecoming preparations, we have embarked several representatives from the Fleet and Family Support Center of Hampton Roads as well as a Virginia state trooper to provide your Sailors and Marines with various Return and Reunion programs. These informational seminars are meant to assist service members with an easier transition at home. Discussions have included relationships with family members and children, financial information, and even car buying strategies, all meant to reduce anxiety and to gain knowledge through discovery of common concerns and lessons learned from others. These programs have been extremely valuable, and we have been very fortunate to have these experts on board to help our return be even smoother.

Also, our homecoming will be streamed live at http://navylive.dodlive.mil/?p=26073. This link will activate sometime today and remain active through the homecoming events.

When you see your Sailors and Marines again, you will notice that they may look a little different. They’ll have more ribbons and warfare devices on their chest. They’ll have crows, an extra chevron or maybe even anchors on their white uniforms, or new officer insignia on their shoulder boards. They’ll be a little bit “saltier” as we say. They’ll have endured and overcome challenges, learned more about their shipmates and even more about themselves, and proved they have what it takes to defend our values and our freedom.

Thank you so much for your support, your sacrifices and your love as we stood the watch these past nine months. It’s been an exciting week and we look forward to seeing you on Friday!

Sincerely,
Bob

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you-

Navy at its finest xD

Trip is back on ! Just later than the rest of you xDD

OMG this has been exhausting!

bitchesthinktheyknowme asked: My bf is on the Truman too!!


Answer:

:D !! <3

I keep telling myself its alright it happens. But I feel dissapointed and betrayed and can’t help it. I know its not easy for him. But it’s just like, idk. This is when borderline personality disorder meets Navy. BPD and Bipolar. Never a good head on collision.

I just wanna feel normal about this

Anonymous asked: Can you explain what being on restriction means to a new SO please?


Answer:

Restriction is a form of punishment for misconduct. What it means is that you are restricted to limits placed on you when you get sent to Mast for an infraction. You are given extra work or duty (in most cases both) and can have your pay grade bumped down (sometimes down to E1) during this period of time. Also, if the infraction was severe enough you can be discharged after your restriction period.

Safe Travels

To those going to the Truman homecoming. I won’t be joining you.

My trip has been cancelled altogether. Fiance is on restriction and it’s unknown whether I will get to see him for more than a couple hours if even that.

I’ve decided not to make the 13 1/2 hr train ride with the kids. I don’t know the area and its a lot of pain and hassle with the kids.

Congrats to everyone. Deployment is almost over and you’ll get to see your S/o’s and family soon.
