Francisco, Stay safe and well, buddy. You know that you have lots of new friends in your extended Southwest family who are praying for you and keeping you in their thoughts. We'll be anxious to hear from you whenever possible and even more anxious to hear of your safe return. Godspeed where the awesome USS Nimitz takes you! Best wishes always, Kim P. S. Each time you eat one of those candy corns, think about us! 🙂

Oh yeah, almost forgot... Do you think we could get Gordon to throw a tail hook on a 700 and have Capt Ray fly it out to the ship for a care package delivery?? I bet USS Blog Boy needs some honey roasted peanuts already!

Also hoping for a safe and speedy return to your friends and loved ones here... Take care of you!! Cindy PS: Hey guys, I have an idea..What if we all light a candle at say 8 PM ET this Sunday night and say a prayer or send your good thoughts to Francisco and all of his shipmates..If we can get enough people to do this then we can have candles lit all over the country for his safe return..

Fransisco - I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to you and your shipmates on the USS Nimitz. We are proud you! Here is wishing all of you a safe return. My brother-in-law is a shipmate of yours and I was there on Monday. Watching the USS Nimitz pull away from the pier was an incredible site. Very emotional! Again, thank you for your service!!

Cindy - What a great idea!! I watched my dad go off to Vietnam TWICE when I was little, so I remember how tough it can be for family. I will be on my patio in PHX at 5pm my time with candle in hand. My husband and I will say a prayer for the safe return of the USS Nimitz and all our brave soldiers across the world!! Hope everyone that reads this blog will do the same....and tell family and friends!! Linda Kirby

Francisco, I am an employee of SWA in the Chicago area. My nephew is also on the Nimitz and this is his first overseas deployment. We really miss him and wish you and the crew the best. Thank you for the updates and the chance for us to feel a little more comfort during his deployment. I wish you the best! Brian

Jeramy, Nope, that wasn't me. I've been a F/A for SWA for 23 years. Before that, I was a college kid at Baylor. Wish I knew more Spanish. It would come in handy on the Love Jet!! And Happy Anniversary to our great Phoenix Base. As of Sunday, we've been here for 20 years!!
