I have a question about conditions aboard Navy DDGs MY son is stationed aboard DDG 84 and tells me there is no hot water in his berthing area and there is no heat in general and this time of year…Continue
I've been struggling with sending packages to my son who is on a DDG.
It's relatively easy when you address the package yourself but using one of the online stores, it's more cross your fingers and hope.
My son's address looks something like this:
Their Division / Department
USS Bulkeley (DDG 84)
Unit 100319 Box 1* (they each have their own box number)
When my son gets back from his deployment his ship will be going into dry dock. I am curious as to what happens to the sailors when this happens. Are they moved to barracks, given shore duty, assigned to other ships or do they continue on the ship and continue as usual?
I went to Amazon and sent two DVDs to my son who is deployed in the Med. The package was refused in Il. I'm about to send him a Christmas package but now I'm afraid to send it because it contains a DVD. Any idea if it's because it came from Amazon or if it was the DVD that caused the package to be rejected?
