EG, I want to thank you for your input. I immediately found the value in what you have done and pledge that I will help you to get the word out in what ever legal way is possible. Again thank you for this site and all of the friends I have made so far.
First I would like to thank Gary for starting this discussion. We have talked about what we can do to promote this site. E.G. has been on many other sites that are Navy related and tried promoting this site on their sites. I have talked to my sailor about talking this site up where he is but in all fairness he is busy keeping us safe and this site is not necessarily his first priority. As E.G. said we don’t have a big advertising budget behind us to work with so it really comes down to us. I have a son in the Air Force and I was in the Air Force and a little while ago E.G. suggested that I start a site like this for the Air Force Dads, which I did. By the way I am working with the same size budget that we have here at Navy Dads. It is slow coming up. But E.G. and I think, and I believe that you all will agree, that sites like this are the way of the future because they are so very helpful, supportive and encouraging to all of us. People helping people, that is what it is all about. I believe that the way this site and Air Force Dads and any other site like this are going to grow is mostly by word of mouth. NavyforMoms has an ad agency and big money behind them and that’s good and NavyforMoms has great members. Navy Dads has great members and that is how this site will grow, just slower. Word will get around about this site and about Air Force Dads and many families will get answers support and encouragement because of these sites it is just going to take time and us promoting it as best we can. E.G. started this site and I started Air Force Dads to help people not to make money or to gain status in the world. I would like to thank Paul for his help and I would like to thank all the members because everyone is stepping up and helping each other with answering questions and supporting and encouraging each other. This site works because of all of you. And let’s face it we are here because of the willingness and courage of our sailors to defend this great country, let us never forget that. So just keep talking about this sit to anyone and everyone and keep supporting our sailors.
(Sorry this is so long I got carried away)
