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.

  • My favorite thing about COMPASS was meeting Mentors and other spouses and knowing I can call/contact them with any questions I ever have about anything.
