Sailors assigned to USS San Antonio (LPD 17) march in the Greenpoint Veterans Memorial Parade in Brooklyn as a part of Fleet Week New York. Now in its 27th year, Fleet Week New York is the city's time-honored celebration of the sea services. It is an opportunity for the citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today's maritime services.

What is the traffic going to be like when we are trying to get on to the base? We have a rental car and I am planning on getting there as close to 6:30 as we can. We are staying north of GL about 10 miles. Are some routs better than others?

What is ready 6 & basic in terms of a DDG? These are phases of training & prep. I'm not exactly sure what is meant. Our sailor has been on a DDG 4 mo. They continue to ramp up with more training. Thanks!
My son left on April 7th and his mother and I have been writing every day since. We are compiling the letters waiting for his address so we can mail them to him. We have quite a few pages between the two of us and we were wondering if we can put them all together in a large 8x11 envelope so he gets the first batch all at once? From there on in we would mail the letters in a standard envelope as we write them.
BTW. This site is amazing. Tons of great information that brings me…Continue
