My First Exposure!

My husband and I were able to visit and take a tour of the ship today for the first time. It was a lot less intimidating than I had imagined in my mind, although I am trying to figure out a technique for getting into the top bunk if I am so blessed to be assigned one. I am ready for the adventure, though. A soldier from the Army who is serving onboard showed me around berthing (where we sleep). She was so helpful. I got to see the flight deck and the "band-aid boat", which is the small boat that taxis people to/from the ship as it probably will not be able to dock shoreside in many countries. It really helped to get a visual today and is psyching me up with excitement to serve.
