Connor in Honolulu 09/24/12
By Wendy McLaughlin
Connor just arrived Honolulu this afternoon to refuel and get the ship ready to deploy for parts unknown in the Middle East. He said the weather is beautiful, but other than that, quick call with no details. He captured the shot I've attached as they were coming into port - nice picture of the USS Arizona Memorial in the background. We had the privilege of viewing this memorial a few years back, so I'm sure memories of our trip are flooding back as he approaches.
Safe journey Connor!!

Muckleshoot Casino 09/19/12
By Barbara Lawrence
Four of us gals went on Access bus tonight to the Muckleshoot Casino, in Auburn, to see "Society of Seven", a Las Vegas show that was originally started in Hawaii almost 30 years ago. The main people that started this show were Hawaiian but they've since added others to their group. They mostly stay in Vegas at the Riviera and I have to say, this was the best music show I think I've ever seen.

Connor 09/18/12
By Wendy McLaughlin
Well, some of you know my Mom and I went to San Diego Sunday to watch Connor deploy on the USS Green Bay Monday morning. MANY tears, but quite the site to see so many brave men and women embark on the same journey with the same intent - to keep us all safe and help protect our freedom on this wonderful country. Try to keep Connor and the rest of these Navy men/women and Marines in your prayers, and I'll do my best to keep you in-the-loop the best I can. They don't always share their whereabouts or plans, but I'm hoping to get some information to post throughout the months. Here are some links about their deployment and some of the details about their journey.
