Good afternoon. I just got a call from my son John. John called me to tell me that he had a great day today on his Ship. He was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal today for the Battle E that his ship got.
Yesterday they ( his Ship ) had a picnic and John played Chess for a while. He said that the CO and XO came over to watch him and that the XO challenged him to a game when they got underway next time.
So far John has:
*National Defense Service Medal
*War on Terrorism Service Medal
*Navy Achievement Medal
Congratulations and good job John.
I haven't heard from my daughter Cindy but I am sure that she is doing great in CIWS C-School in San Diego. Cindy will be going to the fleet sometime in July.
We are very proud of both of our kids in the Navy.
