They say it takes a village to raise a child, but how about a Navy cruiser raising six?
Six sailors aboard cruiser Hué City have added a new member to the family, according to The Florida Times-Union. Four were born within two days of each other; the other two new additions followed shortly after.
Technology has allowed the five proud fathers and one grandfather to show off photos of their bundles of joy on deck almost immediately. One was even able to hear his son’s first cries over the telephone.
Scoop Deck got a hold of these first photos of the newest members of the fleet.
Hué City left June 20 for a 9-month deployment to the 5th Fleet area of responsibility. That means these parents and grandparents won’t meet their little ones until March when the ship returns to its homeport in Mayport, Fla.
