Sea-going Fathers

Debbie and I didn't meet, marry and have children until after my discharge from active duty in 1979. As a reservist, I was blessed to be present at the birth of all my children. From a 1975 Enterprize battle group sailor to this new father, blog no. 24 salutes all sea-going fathers and mothers.

NORFOLK, Virginia. (Dec. 19, 2007) Culinary Specialist 3rd class Richard Herek, assigned to guided-missile destroyer USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51), holds his two-month-old daughter for the first time as he returns to Naval Station Norfolk after a six-month deployment. Arleigh Burke, part of the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group, deployed to the 5th and 6th Fleet Areas of Responsibility to support theater security cooperation and maritime security operations.
