    Navy will use email instead of ALL-CAPS messaging system

    The Navy is switching to a new messaging system that's cheaper and more efficient.
    And oh yeah, one that does away with a century-old practice: communications using all uppercase letters.
    The all-caps were a vestige of a bygone era.
    Back in the 1850s, the teletype machines that the military used were made up of three rows of keys -- none of them lowercase letters.
    In it, the Navy said it is ditching its in-house Defense Message System in favor of e-mail. One with a very apt acronym: NICE (Navy Interface for Command Email).

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
