Red Sea birthday

My son-in-law, Sean, got a rough start to his four-month tour of duty in Djibouti, a small African nation near the mouth of the Red Sea. Air Ethiopia not only lost his luggage, but his ship was not in port when he arrived after 20 hours en route.
His employer, Sea Lift Command, had, however arranged for a hotel that had internet service so he was able to email my daughter. It turns out he was billeted at the five-star Kempinski Hotel in Djibouti while awaiting his ship.
He's assigned to a vessel that delivers oil and supplies to U.S. Navy and other military ships in the area, which is just 12 miles from Yeman, a hotbed of terrorism. By now he must be aboard, since we haven't heard from him.
We knew before he left home that communications from the ship would be difficult.
Sean turns 40 on March 1 and we're hoping to have our friends and others send him birthday greetings. The address is: DECK AB Sean Anzano
FPO AE 09582-4012

Thank you

I would like to give a huge thanks to anyone who will take the time to send my hubby a card. It is his 40th birthday and I am certain spending it far from home and not able to communicate via email or phone due to security reasons probably has him a bit down.I hope to make his birthday a little brighter (and memorable) by asking anyone willing to send a little card (you only need one regular stamp)
Many Thanks!

I believe that the address should be USNS not UNNS

So you’d like to know something about wow gold? Yup it’s world of warcraft gold. Many times, we always talk about how to buy wow gold for our wow character online. In my opinion, learning how to do the wow power leveling is better than Buy WoW Gold. Maybe you’ll say: why not search the Cheap WoW Gold, that can save so much time instead of doing the bore WoW Power Leveling, and there are so many World Of Warcraft Power Leveling teams doing the same thing, that made the WoW Leveling became too competitive. My point is that you cant level up your chacacter though you can find the cheapest wow gold, It’s not fault that buy cheap wow gold can save our many time, but cheap wow gold wasn't mean the time. You wont lack of World Of Warcraft Gold if you’re good at wow power leveling. The WoW Gold should be got when you are leveling your char. Good luck!
