The crew of the San Diego-based USS Mobile Bay is deployed at sea somewhere in the Middle East. But that didn't stop many of them from posting Valentine's Day wishes for their loved ones on the ship's Facebook page.

One Sailor, BM1 (SW) John Flohrs, wrote a poem for his Valentine:

A day to remember.

Remember when I said; I Love… The Way you Kiss.

Remember when you said; Can I be number 4?

Remember when you ordered; the Pillow and the Blanket.

Remember when your Parents Said; Yes, you can marry our Daughter.

Remember when you said; Yes: on top of the Courtyard by Marriott on the 4th of July.

Remember when we said; I Do. In the sands of Virginia Beach.

Valentine’s Day is one of 365 days to remember how much I love you.

Happy Valentine’s Day Sweetheart. I will see you in JC Land.

The Mobile Bay is part of the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group. The group recently departed Dubai after a four-day port visit to Jebel Ali, Dubai.
