USS Makin Island

It has almost been a month but it feels like so much longer has already passed since my brother was deployed! Something to love about current technology is that the USS Makin Island has an actual facebook page for friends and family to keep up with their loved ones. The troops can not access the internet but somehow we are getting to see wonderful images that are posted daily. Where are they? Even if I knew I wouldn’t tell you……………And we all image that somewhere in each photo we can see Curtis!

The above picture is during a weapons training drill on the carrier!

Below is an actual picture of the Red Dragons which is my brothers Marine squadron…………

Just a little update from somewhere in the middle of the ocean! My thoughts and prayers are with all our troops and their families during this Holiday season! God Bless!

    Those pictures are fascinating. What a treat to be able to see a peek into the life of your brave brother as he defends our country. God Bless him and the men and women away from their loved ones this Christmas.

    That is so neat that you have updates to keep you linked. Wish they were more personal for you though.
