Hey FACSFAC VACAPES FAM! Former ET2 Sheppard here, I just wanted to stop by the page and thank you all for being there for me during my shore duty tour. It was one I wont ever forget! I enjoyed every bit of being at VACAPES, learned so much while I was there, and met so many great people and mentors. Through the end of my tour I took advantage of the skillbridge program and got my Real Estate license. I thought I would drop my Real Estate page here if anyone is interested in buying/selling/skillbridge or just giving plain old support. Thanks everyone And Happy Holidays! https://www.facebook.com/ShannonAtBroadsightRealty
Effective 16 March, all movement outside the Hampton Roads area is restricted, to include leave. Certain exceptions may be made on a case by case basis such as PCS moves but must be cleared by the chain of command. Please pass this along to our Sailors and ensure we continue to practice effective hygiene procedures.
