To Whom It May Concern:

The referenced website does not seem to load at all in Microsoft Explorer and the connection times out in Mozilla Firefox.

The front page loads (very slowly) in Chrome, but an attempt to click through the menu to the Instructors section resulted in a Error 404.

Good luck!

As an old Army grunt and an old Aikidoka, I so wish I was available to attend.

Perhaps next time.

Compliments and appreciation to the organizers.

I have accessed this site from home on Firefox as well as MS Explorer with no issues - and, I am currently on my boat and connected to the internet via a different provider and still have no issues with Firefox nor Explorer - maybe something in your security settings of your browser or with your internet provider causing your problems, Fred.

As a retired military veteran from the Vietnam era, I think what these guys are doing is fantastic!

Greg--

It works through my commercial provider just fine! Ah the perils of employment at an institution with extensive defense research grants....

What I couldn't see there...but can see here....is the concentration of veterans instructing, which is the critical key element I first wondered about, and a very good sign.

Best of luck to all involved.

Ah, Defense networks! - I am very familiar with them being as my militarily background is in communications - they have firewalls for their firewalls as routine - and of course, there is the classified stuff we all can't talk about as well on top of that :)

This is a great idea. i would love to attend, but the cost of travel and lodging is too much for a poor recently seperated soldier. I still carry around a psychological burden from my time in the sand box and the years of dealing with it have taken it's toll for sure. Aikido helps though, and for that i'm glad. Thanks for what you're doing, i hope you can help some other vets deal with their issues through aiki.
