Ruba was speaking of her daughter, Katelynn, who is presently serving in the United States Navy on board the USS Boxer deployed in the Mediterranean Sea. Ruba says, her daughter, through an email message describes a typical day at sea.
Ruba further explains the duties and responsibilities of her daughter on the USS Boxer.
Lynn Ruba says her daughter sent a message for the entire Gehlen Catholic family.
Through her mother, Katelynn Ruba explains why she chose to join the U.S. Navy and serve her country.
Ruba says her daughter and other service personnel enjoy receiving letters, postcards, and
email messages which help with morale. Lynn Ruba then challenged the gathering to "bombard" the ship with letters and email messages.
