Interested in a live chat on MFN?
Tracy, founder of, Inc., has started a topic asking for your input. We are able to man a live chat directly on MFN. It would be a general chat, moderated, of course. Please share your thoughts with Tracy by going either to the home page where you'll see the topic started in the center, just above the 'do you shop at Amazonsmile' logo (which if you check that out it will donate .5% of everything you spend at Amazon to MarineParents when you check out - it's simple to set up !! ) :

Here is the direct link to the topic:

Go try it. It's like an instant chat feature running in the lower right hand corner. You don't need java for it to run. You can keep your boards open. You can choose when you want to be in the chat room and when you don't.

You guys know how it works .... I know you have chased that GREEN DOT before !! Same concept. So log in and chat away !! You can clear your chat history. Mods will be available to answer questions. We think you will like it it. It's up and running right now so give it try !
Thank you!

ritaD, There are letters posted on emarine and there is a fb page but you have to be designated for emarine to join the fb page.

Also the top discussion board above where we have all been posting for this deployment might help you.

Have you contacted the FRO? Here is a link that might help you.

It has all the information.

Last 1/9 deployment we had letters from the 1/9 commanders and a face book page.  I don't see any of that this time. What am I missing? There seems to be a huge disconnect with this deployment.  Can anyone explain?
