DoD Buzz | Navy Scuttles All-Cap Messages

Way past time…

WE DON’T HAVE TO SEND MESSAGES THIS WAY ANYMORE, the Navy has decided.Word went out from the Navy’s Fleet Cyber Command on May 8 that the Navy’s internal messaging system now had the ability to transmit in lower case as well as the traditional upper case letters.“Therefore, it is not necessary to limit Navy messages entirely to upper case,” said the directive, first reported by the Navy Times.Of course, the message saying that upper case was no longer needed went out this way: “THEREFORE, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO LIMIT NAVY MESSAGES ENTIRELY TO UPPER CASE.”

I remember reading Navy messages in the 90’s and wondering why they were always all caps. When I asked I got a very Naval ‘because’.
