Happy New Years!

I sent this out as a broadcast email earlier today (with a spelling error... argh!):



I wanted to take this opportunity to express my thanks for being an early adopter and one of the first members on NavyVets, the social network for the United States Naval Veteran.



NavyVets isn't owned and operated by some media giant who badmouths our military in public and then sells their data for advertising dollars - NavyVets is owned by a Naval Veteran!
