Group Description

The “Naval Message Board” is a small group of retired and former Naval Officers who were Naval Aviators with rotary wing roots, which has expanded over the years to include some active duty members as well as a cross section of sister service former and retired officers (Marine Corps, Air Force & Army) from a variety of warfare communities. The “Naval Message Board” has been patterned after the old naval message board which was an important means of written communications to be disseminated within any Naval Command. The “Naval Message Board” offers the opportunity for wardroom members to comment about topical materials shared on the “Naval Message Board” by the wardroom or not.

Appropriate topics for the “Naval Message Board” include the Naval Service and sister service issues associated with the military, warfare, equipment, people, intelligence, political (issues related to military), foreign military services, as well as actions and activities of foreign powers as they might affect the US military and their allies.

The “Naval Message Board” is a closed and moderated discussion group. Current members are on existing informal e-mail lists of the moderator and several other members of this group. New members are invited by existing members of the “Naval Message Board” wardroom only. Members need only refer potential new members on their recommendation to the “Naval Message Board” moderator for an invitation to join the group. Existing members can leave the “Naval Message Board” at anytime using normal Yahoo Group List procedures.

The moderator for the “Naval Message Board” is Cdr Michael G. Brattland USN-Retired,
