I'm not sure if this has been discussed here before or not (did not see it in a brief scan through this forum), so I'll ask... I think one of the best features of SAF is the presence of "Official Representatives" such as Mr. Mullen with DoDMERB. I've also noticed lately that a member "fuji" lists himself and an affiliation to Mass Maritime, and would seem to be a good official authority on subjects specific to his home institution. I'm not sure how fuji found us, but I'm all in favor of members of his qualification. My question is whether SAF has reached out or if it would be appropriate for SAF to reach out to the various institutions (Service Academies and SMCs) to see if they would be interested in sponsoring an "official" member who handles specific concerns relating to their instituional procedures such as what Mr. Mullen does with DoDMERB issues. While I've found that most members do get their questions answered by either a parent, alum, or candidate member, I believe that greater value both from an accuracy perspective (current info) and from a comfort level of the recipient can be had from an "official" source. However, I recognize that there may be some level of discomfort with "official" sources being present in an "anonymous" type forum like SAF, so I believe this discussion, if it hasn't happened, probably should take place before inviting representatives from SAs or SMCs to participate in an official capacity. Thank you for your consideration.
