We watched as the ship departed today. Our son volunteered to man the rail and we we're fortunate enough that he was almost directly in front of us this morning. What an emotional experience for us. This is his first deployment.
May God bless all our sailors!

Our son Cody will be joining the Carl Vinson from the Ronald Reagan. He will be on the ship for half of the upcoming deployment then return to the Reagan. He is looking forward to the next several months and we are very proud of him and everyone else who chooses to serve. God Bless you all!!!!

remember we don't talk about exact deployment/port dates in the open due to OPSEC....general terms are ok...this is directly off of the Vinson FB page:

Loose Lips Sink Ships! ANY discussion or speculation of the ship's location or anticipated inport dates before they're offically released may result in revocation of access to this page.Remember, the bad guys DO follow our facebook page too.
