Ahhh, Tone. Pitch. Attitude.
It’s one of the toughest
things to “write and get through” to somebody. And in communities like ours, where emotions can run high- there is plenty of room for tone-miscommunications
. And when it does happen, it’s hard not be hurt or upset about it.
The good news is, there is a way to help each other understand “how we are trying to say it”. One of our Members, Steve’s mom, talks about her way to add icons, and photos to her posts in… Continue

So I’m going to be adding some “featured” threads on the front page. I am going to start doing this, because I really want everyone
to put his or her two cents in. (And if you have three more cents to make it a nickel, then that is fine also- ha, ha!) :)
I’m still keeping the “how did you find us”… because- I’ll always want to know how you found us. :)
Today’s post is from a mom who has a son thinking about joining the Navy.
Thank you, in advance,… Continue

Hi Everyone :)
So, as we grow bigger and bigger I find myself becoming a bit more "conservative" when it comes to photos, videos… and yes, even content. I know, I know- I feel like I am being a prude…ish jerk. But I’m doing it for safety, privacy and, the community’s best interest in mind (IE in making sure that everybody feels comfortable here). Before I get e-mails on this– Please let me offer up the some solutions.
I need to be more selective on what goes on the… Continue

I feel like the R&B/Pop artist Beyonce in one of her recent songs where she sings… “Mama let me upgrade you” Hehe : )

Our server is is making some changes to fix some bugs and kinks. You will see some changes in your formats. I mean- ALL the bells and whistles are still there
--- they are just re-arranged. Please don’t hesitate to… Continue

Okay, let me keep this simple:
“Everybody love everybody”
– Jackie Moon in the movie Semi- Pro
This is a community were we want everyone to feel comfortable.
I understand that there will be times where you will want to disagree with another member. So if you get upset, and you write it on the public boards, note that hundreds of others will read it, including new moms who kids are thinking about joining the navy. Is that the impression we want… Continue

Hi Navy Family : )
All right, I am getting down on my knees and I am begging you (from the bottom of my heart)
to PLEASE all start using the search function more often...actually- use it BEFORE you even want to start a new discussion.
I feel like I like I’m having some major cases of déjàvu. We have so many GREAT conversations already started on hotels, and empty nests, PIR, etc, etc, etc… that I really need everyone to search before you ask

Hello Ladies and Gentleman:
So as we near 500, we have many duplicate names. (IE, We have 10 Lisa's, 6 Karen's, 6 Sue's, and 9 Debbie’s). I am asking you to please make your name unique (pretty please... I am starting to get a little confused reading the forums... and sometimes I can't tell what Karen or Lisa I am reading about.) I don't mind if you have your first name still in your display name... I just need more than that. You don't have to use your last name...just something that you… Continue

Okay- I wanted to make a blog about this to spread the word as fast as possible (and it’s good news!).
There was some chatter that RTC may be holding off visitors for graduation due to heighten security. But I am here to tell you to breath easy. And relax. Hehe.
For sailors that are graduating this weekend, everything planned to go on as normal. My cohorts have told me that there IS NOT heightened security (It may of gone up around the time when VP Dick… Continue

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again. ~Ronald Reagan
