    Dear SOS

    Any chance it's coming back, ever? There are times when it would be so helpful.

    DearSOS has currently been replaced by a mentor program: http://www.militarysos.com/forum/sit...s-mentors.html

    Unfortunately, there was not a feasible way around the abuse of the DearSOS forum that was going on, but hopefully this new program can give you the help you need.

    It sucks that one person (or multiple, who knows, really) ruined this wonderful feature for everyone who really needed it.

    For me myself...some of the stuff I would bring to Dear SOS...I don't even want ANYONE knowing so it really blows that someone ruined that for all of us.

    Yup.

    Mods, question! Is the mentor program going good? I mean is it really effective? I think my only concern with it is there is no animosity. I hope its going good though so people can get the support and help they need.

    PS- are you still accepting or willing to add more mentors? Or is the list solid?

    I absolutely agree about one person (or however many were involved) ruining DearSOS for everyone- it is incredibly frustrating.

    I couldn't say how the mentor program is going, to be honest. I wouldn't want to reveal anything regarding PMs I personally have received, and I've heard nothing from the other mentors, which at least speaks to the level of professionalism and privacy upheld by each. There is a short list of others who volunteered for the program currently, should the volume of PMs prove to be too much for the current set list. I'm sure we (the staff) are open to additional suggestions on how the program could be improved.

    I like the idea of the mentors program. I've thought recently about using it for something but I just haven't gotten up the courage

    I wonder, still using the mentor program, is there a way to message them anonymously? Like, could the DearSOS be used to only send messages to the mentors? Idk if that's even possible or feasible. It's an idea though.

    I like the list of mentors on there. they're ladies who've been around for a while and know the military way. I can't think of anyone who'd be good for it off the top of my head. Besides a couple, anyways. But Idk if they'd even be interested.

    This was what I was wondering...like could there be a way to send the messages to mentors anonymously?
