Once you've worn Navy blue or always wanted to "Go Navy".. you are a member in good standing: Sea Cadet.. Midshipmen..Active Duty ..Reserves..Veterans..Retired..Navy Families..Navy Civil Service..Coast Guard & Marines..find your shipmates. Michigan residents with a "hint" of Navy Blue can find likeminded friends and associates..

Heads' up !!!

This website creates an "electronic meeting room" for each of the FONMI separate communities. For example.. the Sea Cadet ships can invite their cadets (families) into the Sea Cadet ships' own web site (read FONMI group) for scheduling,  internal discussions and standard admin functions such as posting the "POD".

Don't "miss ships' movement" !!!

Make sure you sign into all of the "workgroups" on the tool bar above that appeal/apply to you !!!

If there is a group missing..let us know and we can create one for you and your mates.

  Please note that the "tabs" across the top are entry points for many of the capabilities of our website...

  • "Communicate" holds information important to the group. PLEASE contribute...your input is important to all of our neighbors !!!
  • The "Share" tab allows a "file cabinet" for the upload of info that you think might be useful to all of us. The calendar is there for all of us to post events we want to bring to the attention of the neighborhood.
  • The "Network" tab holds a specific spot for each of us to share information about us personally that is "suitable for framing." You can post information here that you would want your neighbors to know.
  • "Work Groups" is particularly important where focused groups of members or current Navy centered organizations can use the all of the capabilities of the Groupsite to share information unique to that sub group.
  • The "Web" tab gives us a  link to outside sites that may be of interest to our fellow members...

Note:..Our website grows through invitations from it's members.. that's you !!

Each of us are the "nominators" for membership. Feel free to invite your fellow Navy buddies. Non-veterans are welcome. There is no "corner" on patriotism and service to our country. Thanks to all of you for your support. Remember you can post items to the calender..send group e-mail and originate or participate in discussions at your own pace.

This website does not have a "webmaster"...YOU take the time to input latest developments in your particular area...YOU help all of us by keeping the calender current and above all YOU participate in the NAVY fabric in Michigan !!
