Good afternoon! I’m the current Vinson FRG VP. Since Brett’s post I’ve been thinking about why I ran for the role of Vice President and want to share with anyone thinking about running. My husband and I have only been together a handful of years and this was my first ship experience. He recommended that I run for a volunteer role with the FRG to help with the deployment. I decided to start going to the events to see what the FRG was about and to talk with the current board members and get a feel of what the roles entailed. I found the events to be super chill and the people were very down to earth and kind. Over the past year I’ve been able to help with events that fed spouses and families with food, conversation, love and a sense of family. If you’re looking for a rewarding way to pass the time while your loved one is away, this might be the thing for you.
If you are a spouse interested in becoming a board member from July 2017 until July 2018, please fill out the application here:https://goo.gl/forms/FO2JrLSTqyd0DAf42
