Support-a-Sailor 2012: USS Carr

USS Carr (FFG-52)
Every year during the week prior to Independence Day, we run a "Support-a-Sailor" program at HRNM. We send all of the cards made by our visitors to Sailors aboard a ship that is deployed out of Naval Station Norfolk. This year, we asked our Facebook fans to send us a list of ships on which they have family members and friends serving. From there, we asked those same fans to vote for which ship to send this year's cards to. The winner was USS Carr (FFG-52)!

We need at least 205 cards to send to this ship, so every enlisted Sailor and officer aboard will receive one. We're proud to announce that we're more than halfway there, currently at 134 cards! Within the next two days, we hope to have enough cards to send to USS Carr on Thursday morning.

Want to participate by making your own cards? Feel free to make them at home and drop them off at HRNM by 10am on Thursday, July 5. There are only two major rules: 1) the cards must be homemade; and 2) the cards can't be put in sealed envelopes. Questions? Contact Laura at Thanks for all your help!
