To date, my son is currently aboard the USS Anchorage (LPD 23) in Naval Base San Diego... How about you?
My son Travis recently assigned to USS San Diego LPD22. He took me, his younger brother, his uncle (Navy/Army Ret'd) with spouse on a ship tour today. What a fantastic ship. Hi tech and super clean. Those sailors do an outstanding job!
Steve that's awesome! USS San Diego (LPD 22) and USS Anchorage (LPD 23) both belong to Amphibious Squadron 5 so my son has been on-board the 22 a number of times and he was one of the sailors who had the oppty to give a public tour for a day back in 2012 during commissioning week. He enjoyed taking pix with the tourists heheh. It's not uncommon for crews on the 22 to be on the 23 and via-a-versa for training and quals. We too had toured his ship and yes it's pretty high tech all around and impressive. BZ to your son Travis!
That's good to hear Jason please keep us posted on Shaun's progress BZ!

Lon Sellers BZ to Greg! I hear ya we too are thankful that our son is at NBSD as well about a 7 hour drive or a little over an hour by flight from home. We've been fortunate to have visited him a number of times and he too had the oppty to go on leave and spent time with the family. God Bless them All!
My son is in San Diego and will depart for Pascagoula, Mississippi in 2 weeks to be stationed on the USS America LHA6. The ship will depart Pascagoula for San Diego sometime in late spring.
Great to hear that Charles and Welcome to our state group! My son spent quite some time in Louisiana and Miss. when they were PCU. He saw LHA6 up close and personal and told me Dad that it's an awesome ship!
Exciting times! Look forward to the Commissioning and I gather a homecoming to NBSD or vise versa...
Dave yeah it's cold up in Great Lakes heheh...It may seem like a long time and next thing you know graduation is right around the corner keep us posted..
