COMPASS Testimonials

Participants were asked to identify their favorite thing about their COMPASS experience: 

  • Although I have been at this duty station for 2 years, I have never felt the support of my ‘Navy family’ until this class. The camaraderie is my favorite part!
  • Mentor friendliness and personal stories and understanding. I don’t like asking for help and tend to be an introvert but the friendliness has given me confidence and encouragement to reach out and do so now, before I need help—and also to reach out to other spouses, as they may need help. I am inspired to be a better neighbor.
  • I enjoyed the section on deployments. It was sombering but helpful; bringing up things to think about and prepare for.
  • Sharing deployment experiences and stories.
  • The general humor and love presented by the Mentors.
  • I loved hearing from all those experienced in the topics they were teaching about.
  • Meeting new faces and connections!
  • Meeting spouses
  • I liked hearing from the seasoned military wives. I don’t get that often. 
  • All the take home resources given to us as well as the welcoming atmosphere.
  • Meeting all of the wonderful women. The conversational style.
  • My favorite thing was getting to meet people and learn about Navy life together.
