everyone that had been on this board for years. There are too many names to lists!! This board has gone downhill over the last year. I had taken a break from it, but just looking at it makes me yawn. Darn for the good old days and yes a little drama does not hurt anyone. It at least kept this board entertaining, moving, and interesting. And we use to have intellectual conversation and share info. If any of you are out there shout out. I would love to hear what is going on with you and how you are.

HEY - I agree with both of you. There where some posts here in years past that where hot and heavy. What happened to the ones I agreed with and them that I didn't. I guess the world is changing and them folks just went on to other things. It would be kind of nice if they would just check in and say HEY and yank our chain. I went through a bad time in 2006 when my wife got cancer and died. I had cancer three years ago and was out of commision for about 6 months. I pulled through it and back on my feet. I posted a few silly posts to see if I could lure some back. I thank the the two of you for coming on board and saying HEY...

Ron, so sorry about your wife and thankful your doing better. I used to post alot more and remember well when all the DRAMA was here. I would like to see the board pick up more but with no drama. I know everyone has the right to there opinions but opinions are different than just coming here to cause drama. I dislike seeing the ADs but its not all just about me. lol It is nice to have a military based board for military families who need help, like when going to new duty station and looking for help getting around. I mostly come on now to see the commissary sale page and look for coupons but do peek in to see whats going on. Funny when you like this post over 500 views and only 3 replies. Have a blessed both you.

Hi Patti and Ron! Patti I have to agree with you about the number of "views" and only a couple of comments. I looked at some of the other posts on here and some that were started in January of this year have over 2000 views! That baffles me that you would have that many views and only a couple of posts?? I remember when we would light up the board with conversation and we would have that many views and almost that many in posts!! Something does not add up. Anyways......the military community has changed. We are in a military war community now and concerns have changed from "what should I cook tonight" or "how do I get more coupons" to questions/concerns about deployments, injured military members, the best care and help for them and their families and the list could go on. This board is obsolete in dealing with those areas. THAT is the conversation out there now. I don't think it is hitting the mark in that area. It could. And it could be a mix of active duty and retired in those type of conversations along with the other typical things. And a little bit of drama does make the world go round, within reason!! Message boards are kinda a thing of the past. Blogs are so so anymore-but can be more informational at times and of course facebook has taken over.

I can think of dozens of conversation that would go with what I mentioned above. But you have to have the audience and by looking at the number of "views" you would think you did!

I would love to hear from the others who have/had been on this forever. Give us a shout out and tell us where you are and how life is!! I know you are out there even if you are lurking!! lol Glad to see Patti and Ron that you are still here and hope life is well. Where are the rest of you??

A good example of what boards are doing today is check out miliaryspouse.com

I am not promoting them, just saying this is where message boards/blogs are focusing within the military community. Providing resources and forum.

Meant to militaryspouse.com
I do not work for them nor am I promoting them or sponsoring them in any way. Just want to show what boards are looking like today and generating people. This board could do the same! Again.

Checked blog out. It basically is a combination of your sponsors/ads,a throw in of your Facebook which is commissary sales/contests and recipes. I see nothing of a "wow factor" that screams "check" me out every day. You are not reaching out in the right direction of today's military/retired community.

Hey guys, the chats will pick back up pretty soon. Check out the blog for articles on everyday military living, and cool tips and tricks that pertain to shopping, family life during deployment, etc. Also, be sure to follow military shoppers on twitter and Facebook. The chatting is about to really pick up there, since that's where the community seems to have migrated to. Thanks for all of your comment, everyone!

Hi, <br />I haven't been on here for a long time, but used to get on here back in 2009. I remember you Navy Wife. We were at Fort Benning, and now we are in Jacksonville,Florida. <br />My husband medically retired from the Army. How are you doing?<br />Where are you located? I could go on ND on, but wanted to say hello! :-)<br />Debbie
