As you may be aware the SECNAV has ordered the removal of all of then 91 enlisted ratings titles. This means that sailors will no longer be identified by their job title, say, Aviation Ordnanceman 1st Class Joe Sailor, effective immediately. Instead, that would be Petty Officer 1st Class Joe Sailor.
Sailors past and present have longstanding and deep love of the titles that have defined their Navy lives. All of these now belong to the history books, but you can do something to help possibly change that.
There will be a survey coming out VERY soon about the 2015 VP-4 Association All Hands Reunion that was held in New Orleans. I’m putting out this post to let you all know it’s coming, and to let you know the super secret password to fill out the survey. We’ll be publishing the survey here and through Facebook.
The password is …. VP4Ever
If you access the survey through the website here, and not the Facebook link that’s coming you will need that password. If you access the survey through Facebook, you will not need the password.

Over the last 3 weeks there have been numerous changes to the VP-4 Veterans Association website and even more to come. We need your assistance testing out some of the new feature of the site.
Two of the features we are currently testing out are the ability for registered web site users to upload pictures to the site; and changes to the VP-4 Veterans Association forum.
If you are registered (through the WordPress registration process) on the site, please visit the photo upload test page and submit a couple of pictures for us to test with.
Please visit the Association Forum, register for the forum(if you haven’t already), make some changes to your forum profile(through the User Control Panel) and make a post in one of the forum sections.
We need to make sure the comments blocks at the bottom of most pages of the web site are working correctly too, please post a comment or two on different pages.
Thought I’d share how we are doing on web traffic hits to the VP-4 Veterans Association web site. The site went live on April third and since that time we have had an average of 90 hits per day, and a growth of nearly 244% in just two weeks.
