San Jacinto Family Readiness Group

What is a Family Readiness Group (FRG)?

It's the support system for those military spouses and families who are left behind during deployment. We have meetings to plan parties, activities, and fundraisers (to pay for our parties and activities).

Okay so we had an FRG meeting to start planning for the big day. The big day being Homecoming. We're planning activities for kids to do while waiting for the ship to pull in, hiring a DJ for a party atmosphere, and other things that go on that day. It will be my first Homecoming so I'm not sure what to expect.

We started building a lei for the ship to wear as it pulls in to port on the Big Day. That's a pretty big project. I took a few pictures of the endeavor. We were there for over 2 hours and only got 1/4 of the lei done. We met up later to finish it. I can't wait to see it on the ship.
Actually, I'll probably be too excited to notice.

Who is storing that enormous lei? Will it be under William's bed with your other storage stuff?

If they were coming from Hawaii, all the wives and girlfriends could have a lei for their own husband or boyfriend. Oh well, you could do it anyway. Have a drawing for the big gigantic lei. Don't thank me for my ideas. Mom

Homecoming is so exciting! My husband is deployed at the moment and we're getting ready to start making the lei for the ship. None of us on the lei committee know how to make one that large. How did you do it?

I was able to experience the homecoming of another ship here in Pearl. I never thought I would get so emotional for another woman's husband to come home. The lei looked wonderful draped over the front of the ship.

Welcome home boys!
