How exciting! Our Navy son is on a week long ‘cruise’ aboard the Eisenhower. He’s attached to a training squadron, and they’re going out for about a week so the pilots can practice take off and landing from the deck of a ship.
Since ds is new and doesn’t have flight deck qualifications yet (he’s an airframe mechanic), he won’t be on deck. He thinks he may end up in the galley. He doesn’t care though, he’s just glad to finally get on a carrier.
Proud Navy mom at home watcing the Army/ Navy game!
