Volunteer Stories

ERIK BRAZZELL MACHINIST MATE (NUCLEAR) 1ST CLASS, USN This program helped out drastically with my return to homeport and has greatly reduced my apprehension and fears of this upcoming deployment. I currently am a volunteer to operate the camera, schedule recording times, and enlist more volunteers for this program. With 16 years in the Navy and as a parent of 2 (3rd is on the way) I can't think of a program that compares in its ability to maintain parent/child relationships while away for such long durations. It alleviates home stressors to allow me to perform my duties at my highest ability and allows my children to get updates on how I am and know I still think about them and love them.
