Joyce, Check out Carl Vinson Ombudsman FaceBook page. They had some great info posted regarding base access and some base rules you need to know for homecoming. Check out their blog as well for updated information. You'll find a link to their blog on their FB page.

From Capt. T...

   We continue to make plans for our return, and in the coming days I will send an email to your Sailors that provides specifics that they can forward on to you. I ask you not to post any of this detailed information on social
media--there is a big difference between receiving an email from somebody you trust (your Sailor) and posting on social media where others might access the information. Please treat the information about our return appropriately.

Captain's Corner: April 26, 2015

Friends and Families of America's Favorite Carrier,

This morning, we pulled into Fremantle/Perth, Australia! Wonderful, wild Australia. The crew has long anticipated and thoroughly deserves this cherished port call. It has been 17 years for me--looking forward to see how the city has grown.


We're excited to visit this country that is such a staunch ally. I know they are excited to have us visit. We had several dignitaries onboard yesterday and the amicable relationship was readily apparent. I know your Sailors will be embraced and they will truly get an opportunity to feel the warmth of the culture.

Off to enjoy some Australian camaraderie and friendship! I'm sure you will hear from your Sailor in the coming hours or days.

All the best!

Thanks Tom, actually you helped me with the ships facebook page last year if I recall correctly :)
It just seems like we had a good flow of pictures for a while there and lately they seem to have scaled back some.
I'm not complaining though. I'm sure they are busy.
