FM CNO WASHINGTON DC//DNS//A friendly note to VADM Stufflebeem. Admiral, tell your Staff Weenies to stop using MSWord to draft their messages. That is why you get all the awkward and unprofessional "?" in your messages. You can use special characters in record message traffic, but only if you use the correct procedures - and don't cheat. General beatings for all, my recommendation. Start with those who merged RM with DP so now we have underemployed NMCI'd ITs (different rant for different day). My 'ole RMCS would have never let that message leave his shop......oooohhhhhh nooooooo! Heads would roll! But that was then; this is now.
