Your DGB for today is to send some supplies to a sailor on the high seas.
On August 21, 2017, the USS John S. McCain collided with a merchant ship, leaving ten dead or missing and five injured. It goes without saying that our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of those sailors.
You can do more than just send good thoughts and prayers for those affected by this disaster, though. You can send needed items to those sailors that lost all of their their material possessions in the accident. If you’re not in a position to send goods, send a note of condolences.
If you send a package to the ship’s general address, it will be distributed to the crew in need at:
USS John S. McCain DDG 56
Unit 100161 Box 1
FPO AP 96672-1274
Suggestions from a shipmate include clothes, underwear, hygiene products, razors, dark blue undershirts, black boot socks, snacks, and similar items.
