Me and My Navy Times

I have never blogged before so here goes, never to late to start. I have to say my RTC in FL. was different, I learned that you do not tell a MCPO he has an attitude. Yep, I did and set me back they did. Another piece of advise, don't stand on the grinder and watch the drill team as your company goes marching off without you. Yep did that, 50 pushup later while be slapped on the head with my CC papers did not help. Lucky for me, I could have wound up at I/T.. that is a horror story in…

Yes this site is available on Facebook.  YES you can click on a name and visit their page and see all their stuff.  YES you can look for any command you may have served in/on, or start it up if you want.  PEOPLE are only on here if they sign onto this site.

Build your page up any way you want.  Make it fun and interesting.  Something others would like to see.  Doug Karr doesn't like foul language, but there are ways around that.  Just tell your stories, post your pictures and have a bit of fun.

At the bottom of each area there is a "View All" and that will let you see all that is on that part of the site.  I have found this site is way easier to use that some of the others, and I don't use them any more. 

Welcome abaord!
