    hey there all,

    Well, I got orders to Norfolk and we are going straight on deployment. I talked to my ship and they said that I should stitch about 8 sets of coveralls. What else should I bring along for a 8-9 month deployment?

    thanks,

    Bullittmoestang

    What kind of ship are we talkin? You can only take so much on a small boy, but on my carrier we took everything. I would recommend:

    Enough workout clothes to last a week before laundry. Stack up on multivitamins!

    An IPad/laptop with tons of viewing material (if you know what I mean)

    And a positive attitude. Europe should be a lot of fun. Thank you for your service and good luck.
