Living on the USS Nathan James
So, my dad's the Captain of the USS Nathan James, a destroyer. I've been living with Dad and around 200 or so sailors in the United States Navy. Let's just say, I get in trouble a lot.
I mean a lot!
Lieutenant Danny Green, a Navy SEAL is like my brother. Commander Mike Slattery, my dad's second in command, is like my uncle. My dad, Commander Tom Chandler, ship's captain. I miss my family, friends, and my horses. It's been months since we left Norfolk, Virginia. I am part of this program that sends the kids of sailors to sea with one of the parents, and the ships have small classrooms. My name is Alexandra Gracen Chandler.
