Once "turnover" to
the oncoming crew has been completed a "Change of Command" ceremony between
the crews makes it official.
We than begin our
trek back from the direction in which we had originally been brought. We
first ride to the airport where we will board a plane headed for the United
States. It will be about a six hour flight. Though sleeping is not normally
a problem, I always found this part of the trip very difficult for sleeping
because of the excitement.
We would arrive at
the airport (normally Hartford in our case) and would board busses that
transport us back to Groton, CT. It would normally be the middle of the
day when we arrived.
There at Groton Sub
Base we would be re-united with our friends and loved ones and begin our
30 day R&R (rest and relaxation) followed by 2 months of training in
which we would than begin the patrol cycle over again.
This will complete
our tour of "A Patrol Aboard The USS George Washington Carver". We
here at HomeAlive certainly send
our prayers and best wishes with you as you continue your journey. May
the Peace of Jesus Christ rest with you always. DWH
