The brotherhood of the U.S. Navy's
Opticalman and Instrumentman ratings


OK! I've been really strapped at work and we are moving to a new home so I haven't been able to work on the site lately. I would really like to hear from any member who has ideas or thoughts on new stuff or changes. I would really LOVE to find one of you members who would like to take over managing the site. You can contact me anytime.

Once verified you can log in and you will be asked to pay a membership fee. Registration will give you limited access. Once dues are paid, you will have full access to the members area.


We now have a forum. It's for members only. If you have registered but haven't become a full member, please do so as soon as possible. The more PAYING members we have, the better chance this association will continue.
