Francisco G'day from Australia,
Our son is one of your shipmates, he too was overwhelmed by what he saw in India. This is his second Nimitz deployment and he said he had not witnessed anything to prepare him for India. You are so right, we do take our western cultures and all that it affords for granted. But good on you for recognizing that...not you will take that with you and have a better life for it.
I am trying to make travel arrangements to come for the Homecoming. Have you heard any SD arrival times as yet? Our sailor said he has not heard at this point. It is hard for us being on the other side of the world. If you or your family could network with us via email, we would so appreciate it.
Thanks, Linda and David
