Home is the sailor, home from the sea

When a Navy ship come home from a tour of duty, the sailors hold a raffle to see who gets to be the first one off the ship and into the arms of his family.

When the USS Essex returned to port in San Diego yesterday, the winner of the raffle was Jeremy Masiello.  Brad’s son. We’re just a bit excited.  Brad and Kate went down to see the ship land and visit with Jeremy.

That’s sure one way to have a merry Christmas.
