Ship's Greetings

MC3 Berumen and her boyfriend, AC3 Dalton, are exchanging gifts in the TV control room.  Like me, Dalton has to work today and is stuck on the ship.  I briefly entertained the thought of taking leave and traveling to the east coast to visit family and friends, but with plane tickets starting at $800, it's just too expensive.  

My dad called last night to see how I was doing on Christmas Eve.  I'm actually doing fine.  As an only child raised to be independent, I maintain a strong relationship with my family, but can also handle being on my own during holidays.

I wish I could say the same for everyone else here. There's definitely some sad faces today.  But we've got a job to do and no doubt the Nimitz Sailors will handle business like the professionals they are.

Happy Holidays America.
