I usually lurk in the ROTC and SMC forums. There is a real interesting thread in the Merchant Marine Academy Forum "A call to action" It brings up the aspect of a blast email critical of the academy. I think it is important that your DDs and DSs know that they must be very careful of what they put in writing in an email or even a blog. It's permanent and cannot be ereased. Something put in writing on the web may outlast the pyramids.
