VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users' privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

John, I got promoted to Sp-4 I think it was under your command. There were a bunch of us that got promoted at the same time. Everyone that got promoted chipped in 20 dollars. We drank for 2-3 days on the money.
