In 2011 I created this Blog to stay connected to readers of my newspaper column after I decided to take time off to enjoy shore duty with my family. I never in my wildest dreams thought it would become as popular as it has. Something that started so small, has now circled the globe and is reaching record numbers. (anywhere from 1,000 – 50,000 a day)
The blue star that you see in my logo represents the service of the military dependent.
This is still a personal Blog (See Disclaimer Page).
I do not receive money to write, nor will I at this time. Please respect that this is my personal property and yes, I do have feelings. Know that with this comes my personal experiences. These will not be your experiences. You are more than welcome to take what you need and want from this site and leave what doesn’t apply. Our military is a diverse melting pot and no two situations/deployments/underways/missions are the same. Please be respectful, kind, and know I will do the same. And lastly, I have a very good sense of humor. If you are reading something and questioning if I am joking, I probably am. I have found that laughter can relieve pain, heal the heart, and is always contagious.
