Just trying to pull up the Official Navy Acronyms from Military Personnel.  I get that the file is corrupted, or it just won't come up.

Hi! I'm new to Navy Dads.....but I just got my first letter from my son, at the end of his letter he wrote "I like g/g" or possibly "9/9"...(not the best printing) Does anyone know what that means?? Thanks for the reat site!!

I drove my son's car down to Norfolk yesterday, and spent time with Chris. I never said "Huh?" more than I did yesterday. It's like Greek AND Latin combined...

It's good to have one place for this, because there are times my son talks or texts me and I have no earthly idea what he's saying.
