HUGE Day…..

 Today is a HUGE day for my family………Today my brother and his carrier the US Makin Island return from their deployment!!!!!! Now, my brother will still be stationed at Pendleton until October.  He will then come home to Oklahoma but today is the end of his deployment and his homecoming!

 My family is all in San Diego for his ceremony today and I am sad I am unable to be there but I am there in spirit! I talked to Curtis via email and he said it wasn’t a big deal I couldn’t make it and he would come visit me soon! He is happy for us and our move……he is very supportive. But, man things have changed since he was last home!

 To read an article by the US Navy all about the Makin’s deployment and how this is the maiden voyage for this brand new Hybrid carrier you can click HERE!

My family received a wonderful email this week from my brothers commander about his exemplary service while deployed and the awards he will soon be receiving. We all know how responsible and on top of things Curtis is but it is so wonderful to read that others recognize this in him as well. We are all so proud you Curtis and I couldn’t love you more!
