Tweet This morning I read a tweet from the Associated Press twitter account that said: “BREAKING: US official: Navy SEAL team that rescued 2 Somalia hostages was the same that killed bin Laden. -BW” My response to that was disbelief.

Tweet As the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001 looms upon us, I find myself (like so many) reflecting on where I was on that day and examining the culture changes that have changed our social landscape since. That Tuesday morning was a seasonably pleasant and clear day in the Midwest. I remember going to […]

Tweet Everyone and their grandmother is on Facebook it seems. Twitter is becoming one of the largest growing social media sources on the Internet. All of that is great but what does it have to do with the Navy? A lot more than you might think. This generation of Sailors has adopted those channels of […]

Why do some businesses actively promote that they offer […]

Tweet Within the past couple years, the Navy has made changes to the enlisted seabag in part to the response to feedback leadership was receiving from the Sailors in the fleet. These changes have come with mixed feelings from the Sailors who currently serve and a lot of negative feedback from those who served prior. […]

Tweet Lately I’ve noticed a bunch of news coverage about flights experiencing turbulence especially after the Air France flight over the Atlantic. While as tragic as that flight was for those people, turbulence is not an uncommon thing. Anyone who has flown has probably experienced some level of turbulence. In fact it’s graded and is […]

Tweet Every so often when I tell someone about my reserve status I’m met with an interesting response from them: “Really…and your job is ok with that?” My reply is that my company is pretty good about supporting my military service but that I’m also try to ensure that they are kept in the loop […]
