    Coast Guard Academy thread viewers,

    I will be leaving Service Academy Forums for personal reasons.

    You have a great group of experienced parents, cadets and Coast Guard employees. They are great help and know what they're talking about.

    For the current Coast Guard Academy cadets, the fleet awaits you. The "real" Coast Guard is a great place, is worth all of the trouble and pain you have already gone through/will go through. We're the best at what we do, and our fellow Americans know it. You won't have the fanfare of our sister services, but you'll do your job anyway. You will work with some of the greatest people you've ever met. Watch out for your shipmates, a term that will come to mean alot.

    Good luck!

    Fair winds and following seas.

    V/r,
    LITS

    awwww...

    I am sad to read this. Your words have always been encouraging and spot on.
    Good luck, and hopefully my son will be lucky enough to cross paths with you one day.
    Thanks so much.

    I don't believe he was banned....it is my impression that he left of his own volition.

    I saw a note from a moderator that said he was banned for something he posted.

    It said it was a 7 day ban. But I gather from LITS posted response that he's leaving for more than the 7 days.

    It also says banned under his name now.

    I agree it's too bad LITS is gone. I didn't always agree with him on some things but that's what makes up a "discussion."

    I myself left the forums for a while due to some problems with the "moderators." At times they get a bit heavy handed and certainly don't like to be criticized.

    It's likely that LITS will be back at some point. I swallowed my pride and came back since it is a good forum and it is very helpful to a lot of people.

    LITS provided a unique perspective as one who graduated from the CGA and is now in the fleet. Luigi and I come from the parents' side, ZO and others from current cadets and others from candidates. We need all these voices.

    NOOOO!

    LITS, how will we get the real perspective? What a shame. I am so sorry you are gone. I hope you do come back and at least read these as a guest??? I will miss you, we will all miss you!
