USS ALASKA BLUE Trip to NYC

Feb 20th 2010

Hi, My name is Kevin Byrne and I am Commanding Officer of USS ALASKA (SSBN732)(BLUE). My Commnd will be conducting a trip to the NYC area in order to speak to NROTC Midshipman at the United States Merchant Marine Academy and State University of New York at Maritime College. As part of the trip I am bringing one Junior Officer and some senior enlisted personnel. As part of the trip I would like to get my guys to some of New York's attractions- Whether it be a Broadway show, sporting event (Rangers, KNicks, etc) or tour of a historic landmark. Do you have any information on what will be available between 20-24 February? Thanks. Sincerely, Kevin Kevin M. Byrne, CDR, USN CO, USS ALASKA (SSBN732)(BLUE)

    My husband Cpl. Charles Palmer was Killed In Action Iraq May 5th 2007. My 11 year old daughter has never really asked for anything since. She has asked me to try to get tickets to see Justin Beiber in concert. If there would be anyway possible, this would make one little girl so happy. He is playing at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on February 20, 2010. We are willing to travel just to attend this concert. Thank you for anything you can do to make this happen.

      Last Minute Plea so Husband Gets To See Show in Las Vegas before he deploys!

      Feb 6th 2010

      I know that this might be impossible at the last minute but certainly worth it to see his smile if someone is able to fufill! My husband, Cpl West, who previously served from 2002-2006 at 29 Palms, CA & Camp Pendleton. Then he re-joined as Reserve in August 2009...and is now back to Active Duty. I am so proud of MY Hero and I hope everyone understands exactly what I am talking about. He will deploy to Afghanistan in March for 7 months, leaving behind myself and our 3 young boys ages 7, 4 & 2. The one thing that we wanted to do before he deployed was to return to Las Vegas where we were married and celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. While in Las Vegas our hope is to see George Strait in concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sat. February 6th, 2010...but any show to celebrate our anniversary would be appreciated. We have everything else set & reserved(non-refundable) and we're being joined by his sister, a Veteran of the Navy. Just when I thought we were set, I am unable to find tickets that we are able to afford..I'm blown away by the fact that the cheapest tickets I have found are $200 a each! Now I fear that the one thing that he wanted to do before his deployment is out of reach. I am not ready to give up. I hope & pray that someone out there can bring the biggest smile ever not only to his face but also to mine. My husband is a very hard worker and very dedicated to everyone else's needs. He fights hard for our family as well as our country therefore, I am fighting to bring a smile to his face. Please someone, help me in my wish for my Hero so that he holds onto that memory over there as a reminder of what he is fighting for. Thank you all so much for what you do & thanks to everyone who has served, currently serves and plans to serve in the future.
