A.J. has officially left for Japan! He got on a flight out of Norfolk, VA at 7:00 am this morning and landed in Atlanta, GA around 9:00 am. He is scheduled to leave Atlanta at 1:00 pm and land in Seoul, South Korea at 4:30 pm (their time), which is about 3:30 am for all of us. Then, on Monday, he will be flown out to the carrier that be will be deployed on for the next 4 months. Talk about jumping right in!!
A.J. is very anxious to get out there and get started with his new adventure. I will miss him greatly, but I am so proud of what he has accomplished so far in the Navy and I am excited to see what lies ahead for him.
I have inserted a web link in this post. It will take you to a Google Map that has our new base pinpointed on it and you can also see the surrounding cities and areas that we will be in. I cannot get it to be a straight link from the blog so you will have to copy and paste the address into your internet browser to get there. Sorry!
