And by *we*, the Naval Institute doesn’t mean us, we mean the collective community of the bloggers that give us their insight, time and devotion to discussing the Navy in an independent forum. Equally important are those of you who comment and shape the conversation.

In similar great news, friend of the Naval Institute, Maj. Norman Hatch, USMC (Ret.) took not only one, but two standing ovations from the crowd. Additionally, the group YouServed captured more great video and chronicles the conference.
