Hookup Site Fling Raises Over $1 Million For Military Veterans

The popular hookup site Fling allows soldiers who are deployed or have deployed in the past to find a hookup for an evening or weekend, and the company behind the site has now raised $1 million for veterans through its new non-profit initiative, which is called Fling It Forward.

The new service is part of a new effort by Fling to “give back” to the armed forces. Last year, the company behind the site launched the Fling It Forward campaign, which was the company’s way of saying “thank you” to those in the armed forces who serve their country.

Fling CEO and co-founder Ryan O’Neil told Business Insider that Fling It Forward has now raised over $1 million for the site. The goal of Fling It Forward is to “get soldiers sailors, airmen and Marines the money and the resources they need so they can re-integrate into society and lead healthy lives,” he says.

O’Neil says that about $1.3 million of the money raised will go to the troops. The remainder of the money will go to the company’s efforts in getting veterans back on their feet.

To date, Fling It Forward has sponsored three events in Las Vegas and one in San Diego, and plans to continue to sponsor events in the coming year.

“It’s really about creating a culture that brings people together and we can’t do that if we don’t give back,” he says. “We want to give veterans back to society, we want to help them transition to civilian life.”

A few months ago, Fling It Forward started raising money to sponsor veterans who are looking for financial help after they are discharged from the military.

Fling It Forward now plans to work with the Navy Reserve and Air Force Reserve to find those veterans who need financial assistance and help them find resources.

“We want to help them transition to civilian life, we want to help them become productive members of society,” says O’Neil.

Fling It Forward wants to find a way to work with military recruiters and with other veterans groups to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible.

The goal of Fling It Forward is to help veterans and soldiers transition back to civilian life as smoothly as possible.

“We want to help them become productive members of society,” O’Neil says. “We want to work with those that are coming home to transition them back to society and make them productive members of society.”

The site has already raised more than $1 million for veterans through its non-profit program, Fling It Forward.

“It’s important for us to reach out to people that are in the military and people that have just come back,” O’Neil says.

O’Neil says the company decided to turn its attention to veterans because so many veterans are hurting financially. The site already hosts a program that allows soldiers and sailors who are deployed to find a date.

But the company also realized that it needed to reach out to people who are still on active duty and have not yet been deployed or sent on deployment.

“I think our mission is to help bring soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines the money and resources they need so they can re-integrate into society and lead healthy lives,” O’Neil says.

For that reason, Fling also plans to continue sponsoring events in the coming year.

Fling will be supporting the Armed Forces Bowl, which will take place on December 22 in San Antonio. The company also plans to sponsor the Armed Forces Appreciation Night, which will take place at the Dallas Cowboys game on November 22.

As part of Fling’s efforts to help the troops, the company also created a special program that allows soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who are deployed or have deployed in the past to find a date.

The company, which has more than 6 million users worldwide, started a special program that allows soldiers and sailors who are deployed or have deployed in the past to find a date.

Fling was already popular among soldiers and sailors, and the new program was the natural way to take the site’s efforts to help others who are in the armed forces one step further.

Hooking Up With Someone In The Military

We have all heard about the myriad problems you face when you meet someone in the military, but often we face a different problem. As civilian or married military personnel, we often feel we don’t really belong anywhere, which is a harsh reality for many others. Besides potentially dangerous missions, the hardest part of a military relationship may be the lack of access to family, friends, and even family members.

This is particularly true for those who have been separated from their loved ones, probably because of their commitment. In addition, this relationship can negatively affect your relationship with other potential partners (which, I warn you, is the more difficult reality for many of your significant partners) and you are facing problems. 

Whether you are in a military relationship for two months or two years, that can be a challenge, but there are some things you can do to ease yourself and your relationship, even if you know that the military is first. 

When you marry a service member, you become dependent, even though I have never met a military spouse who would define himself as “dependent” on anyone. This is completely unique to every person I compare to him, so I really don’t mind when it comes to my military. 

When you talk about a relationship that is cohabiting in the military, there is a very different risk involved, but it is a consideration because you will have the important task of your military spouse. If you have a sexual relationship with someone in your unit or even on a facility, you must be accepted as a military spouse.

Tell your girlfriend that the military won’t give you food and won’t let you come home from Iraq or Afghanistan without buying your own plane ticket. When a soldier, private or general, is at a military base in Iraq, Afghanistan or any other country outside the United States, he may have sexual intercourse with native women. Many men end up using apps like adultsearch.vip to find hookups while away.

It is worth noting that military bases have been listed as gay hotspots on cruise sites in the past, but this is on Grindr, not Operation Desert Storm. It’s not as if soldiers send nude photos to back up these claims, or that the military knows where they are anyway. If you’re looking for someone who spent a few years in your military and then got separated, it probably won’t look like that. And even if the government database is updated every time a person makes a move in their life, it will not be easy to determine whether they have been found. 

If your relationship is primarily based on civil acquaintance, you may not be able to have a personal relationship. When it comes to military relations, they know that they are stronger than other relations, even though they have already overcome many battles.

Ask a military spouse to share how couples, military or civilian, can maintain strong relationships over long distances. Make sure you marry or date someone who has had a career that often involves a long-distance relationship, such as in the military, law enforcement or civilian world. 

This is best illustrated by the fact that most civil courts do not prosecute cases of adultery. As a result, the world of crusading and hooking in the military is as enveloped in secrecy as the queer attachment and dating culture that the armed forces represent. Real stories are hard to come by, but it is easy to find and verify those you know and know. 

Although officers and conscripted service members have been married since they entered the service before the adoption of this policy, the relationship does not violate fraternity policy. This can be difficult if you are in the same rank and do not violate DOD rules, but it is not impossible.

US Military Bans TikTok : Here’s Why

The Us military and coast guard have banned all active personnel from using the Chinese social media app TikTok. Cited as a security risk, clearly generals in the military are worried about China using location and other data to undermine national security. Certainly, seeing where active marines on duty are stationed provides an informational advantage to the CCP, a more sinister threat is at play. The Chinese communists have long used sensitive information to blackmail high level politicians and others, could this by happening to military personnel as well?  Of course nudes shared on TikTok of the adult version of the app, AssTok, pose a major blackmail threat to almost any member of the military or coast guard.

Why TikTok is banned

There are various apps you can access to access the TikTok app, like Google Play, but the military has chosen to block access to TikTok. What might be the military fears? Well, if a recruit is on duty in their vehicle and sees a TikTok influencer near by, the recruit is more likely to lean in for a selfie, or at least look up at the brand logo on their back while working out. TikTok influencers are often given free things to entice people to download their app, a hook to get people to download the app. The military might just be worried about this happening. It is also possible the military believes TikTok has not proven itself to be a reliable social network. The app has been banned from use in some other countries. Clues as to why the US military is suspicious of TikTok?

The Military’s Concerns

With a base location in the North China Sea, Taiwan and Southeast Asia, the US military has a clear view of China’s growing influence over their operations. In the case of a conflict, China has a natural advantage of striking from three sides or more. Taiwan provides China with a method of invading the mainland by re-routing ships through the northern channel into Japan. This forces the US to drop 7,000+ troops into the middle of the peninsula, many of whom will be lost in this trap. China can also cut the pipeline from the mainland to Japan, effectively strangling the northern region of the US in a literal sense. This is why the military is so concerned. China’s PLA has the capability of targeting the sea pipeline, but only if they can find the key sites to map out for attack.

The Military’s Counter-Measures

The Department of Defense sent out a statement on why TikTok was banned. TikTok is a fun, engaging platform that provides short videos for creative, spontaneous and spontaneous expressions. However, recent reports have raised concerns that TikTok is being used to distract users from discussions and conduct unauthorized investigations in connection with their official duties. Considering the military and law enforcement often communicate via text or video, a ban like this will definitely have an impact. However, this could have far-reaching consequences. China has proved that it can target a specific individual’s social media presence, and may continue to do so until they can identify and eliminate a person’s online profile.


Anyone familiar with the terrible lack of integrity in the military, would find this behavior disconcerting, indeed an open and honest discussion is needed on this subject. The military is under no obligation to provide a list of contractors or vendors, and with that in mind, if these vendors have their fingers in the proverbial cookie jar, what information will they be willing to sell? Will it be old or new? The growth of these social media sites and their increasing use among young users is a cause for concern. Furthermore, TikTok, like every other social media platform has privacy settings, if an admin suspects you have accessed their system, you will be banned.

Congratulations to the following Chiefs for being elected as Officers of the Yorktown Chapter for 1999:

Officers BOD Members
President: Jeff Gruber Adrian Rymer
Vice Pres. Greg Smith Paul Simpson
Secretary: Pat Gallagher Austin Adcock
Treasurer: Tim Busch Leonard Rich

During a joint CPOA / CPOAA installation ceremony on January 7th, held at RTC’s Port of York, the new officers sworn in by Honorary President Captain Dennis Sande, Commanding Officer RTC Yorktown.

CPOAA Officers installed for the new year are:
President: Mrs. Audrey Wahlkamp
Vice Pres: Mrs. Carol Ferro
Secretary: Mrs. Kay Griffin
Treasurer: Mrs. Candy Freer

Closing remarks from President Gruber: It is a great honor to serve the Yorktown Chapter. I look forward to this year’s activities and the opportunity to celebrate in   our Chapter’s 30th anniversary. I would like to express my personal Chapter goals for the coming year.

Membership Drive. I believe that every Chief should go through an initiation to be introduced into what being a real Chief is all about. In addition, I feel that every Chief should belong to the CPOA. I believe that this organization is the tool to continue the mentoring of Chiefs and makes the Chief Corps stronger.

Outstanding Chapter Award. I would like to see this Chapter receive the award for 1999. I will work with members to ensure a proper package is prepared and submitted so that Yorktown Chapter can be considered for the award.

Membership Service Hours. Not every member can participate in every activity that this Chapter has. I don’t expect them to. However, I would hope that each member considers what talents or interests they have and selects an activity that they would like to join in. I have asked the Vice President to keep track of what members attend the various activities and maintain a list of hours for the year. I will identify and recognize those that contribute 10 hours and 25 hours of service with a special certificate of appreciation.

Auxiliary Unit Membership Drive. The Unit needs our help to encourage CPO spouses to join the Auxiliary. I ask each member to at least provide your spouse with an application and information on this organization. Let them know that the meetings are the 1st Wednesday each month, at 1930, at the Port of York. Point of Contact: Mrs. Audrey Wahlkamp (757) 872-9277.

Planning Ahead. I encourage members to look ahead when it comes to this Chapter. Don’t be thinking “what should we do this month?”, instead be thinking “what are we going to do for the entire year”. If we look ahead, we will improve the chances that things get done on time and with success.

Open Communications. Don’t wait till the next meeting to bring your ideas or concerns to the Chapter. Contact me as soon as you are thinking of it. I can be reached by phone: (757) 898-2233, by e-mail: jgruber@rtc.uscg.mil, or if you are at RTC: Canfield Hall, room 116 (next to the Library).

Open Letter To Cape Cod Chapter CPOA

Disclaimer:  Open letters are the opinions of the writer (s) and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the
Cape Cod Chapter, CPOA

Fellow Chiefs, during the past several months there has been some urgent matters regarding our Chapter and the Wheelhouse that could possibly have some severe adverse effects on our local organization and its functioning ability.

Chapter President CPO “Bo” Hause has made several of the members aware that the CG AirSta “Chiefs Mess” has formed a committee and is advising the AirSta Command on matters regarding the CPOA Chapter, Wheelhouse operation and business of the concessionaire, CPO Jerry Piunti. In short, the matter is, the AirSta “Chiefs Mess” is currently and actively taking up this situation about the “Wheelhouse” operation in its entirety from the concessionaire and reduce the ability of informal stewardship of the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA in regards to the Wheelhouse.

A brief history on CPOA and “Chiefs Mess’.” The CPOA chapters were affected (circa 1993) all over this country and some abroad that were the informal stewards of chiefs messes at air stations, ashore and afloat commands for the “Chiefs Initiation” and other community functions. My initiation and inauguration to the Oregon Chapter CPOA was enjoyed by the participation of air station, afloat and ashore commands and was sponsored by the local chapter. That special day was recognized by all in the fraternal way that the USCG CPOA is committed to then and now. Today initiations and other functions, particularly when the function is related to the community were forced to divide the function of stewardship between the CPOA local chapter and the “Mess”. During the tenure of MCPOCG R. Jay Lloyd this informal stewardship was interrupted and a “Chiefs Mess” was established to take over some of these functions. The “Chiefs Mess” which was formalized and force fed (my opinion) to the “Chiefs” community had very little organization, no structure to conduct business under a rule of order and most of all was not legally able to handle funds and accounts. These “chiefs’ mess” immediately looked to the CPOA Chapters locally for the monetary backing to get themselves started. This caused a scission in the “Chiefs” community that exists today and is being demonstrated by the AirSta “Chiefs Mess” and others here on Cape Cod.

Through the persistence and diligence of our Chapter President and Immediate Past President (Bruce MacIntire) getting their foot in the door to curtail what was determined to be immediate closure and changing of the locks at the Wheelhouse. This would place the functioning ability of the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA at serious risk. It is time for awareness of this matter to be brought to the attention of all 200+ members of this chapter.

From this January meeting, we should move forward and try to maintain our stewardship for the “Wheelhouse” through our chapter officers, membership of active duty, reserve and retired CPO’s. We must be poised and ready to unify as a fraternal organzation/business group and impart the kind of impact on the U.S. Coast Guard just the same way we impact our community, with benevolence and fraternalism. If we are forced into uncertainty we will loose the significant impact of benevolence and fraternalism.

It is now a time to stand-up and show that we truly believe and live up to our motto “…In respect for those who have gone before us, and as a guide to those who follow…” Collectively, we must close ranks and bridge the divide by our show of unity and support of the U.S. Coast Guard in all aspects that our preamble defines.

I submit this letter to the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA under “the good of the order” to cause the membership to be aware and arouse their curiosity with regards to our Chapter and the Wheelhouse future. In addition, I will re-enter CPOA service as a Chapter officer in the capacity of president or vice president so that the minority is heard and the majority rules with the support of the membership. I further request and submit this letter for inclusion in the minutes and publication in the newsletter.

Timothy J. Pitts

Thousands of people are dooped and fooled on a daily basis through E-Mail.  Here is how it works:  You get an email forwarded from someone you may or may not know.   The email may be a sad story about a little girl who has cancer.  The email states that for everyone you forward this email to, the little girl will receive a donation of 3 cents to help her get healed or to get her something that she wishes for before she dies.  A real tear jerker!  Unfortunately, ALL these types of emails are fake!  They are designed as a sick joke to make people clutter up mail servers just for the fun of it.

If you receive emails like this, simply delete them!!! Do not respond even if it’s to tell them that it’s fake.  I did that and felt like a fool afterward knowing that I just cluttered someone’s email system to give a warning to others!  My intentions were good, but I was dooped just like everyone else!  It’s like a cancer that just keeps growing.  To stop the cancer, simply hit the delete button and forget all about it.

Posted by: Bill Taylor on 12/21/97, at 5:15 PM

Summer of 1977 I was senior reserve officer student. My last time at Yorktown. The first was in Direct Commission School, 1960. The last was water pollution school. Many schools in between. Enjoyed a lunch at the CPO mess in 1977. A young lady performed an interesting dance. Never happened at the O Club, to my knowledge. I have many happy memories of Yorktown. Quite a difference between barracks 92&94 of 1960 and the handsome brick officer quarters of 1977. Ex-enlisted, the USCGR was great. I always maintained that I never knew enough to be a chief. As an O-6, nothing changed.
