It was an exciting honor to be among the friends and family welcoming home the crew aboard USS Gettysburg! An added bonus was seeing Operation Gratitude’s One Millionth Care Package recipient, Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class (SW) Brooke Oekerman, again, and giving her the keys to her 2014 Ford F-150 pickup truck. THANK YOU, 5-Hour Energy, for this generous gift!
