I’m Brett Cote. I’m an MC1 with 11 years in the Navy. I was a legacy JO, but now I’m a full-fledged MC.
In addition to JO “A” school, I’ve attended Video Production and Documentation “C” school. I’ve also attended the Military Advanced Motion Media program at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications.
I’m currently stationed at Fleet Combat Camera Pacific. My past commands include Defense Media Activity, a previous tour at West Coast Combat Camera, and NAS Meridian, Miss.

Welcome to MilC digital. This is my foray into the world of blogging. I’m going to focus on all things MC and my opinions on those things.
I’m not personally inclined to blog, but the tools of our trade are changing really fast. So, this is part of my effort to stay current on all the mass comm skills and tools.
I’m going to try to keep my posts casual and conversational. I apologize in advance to my legacy JO brethren, because I will definitely be straying from AP Style; lo siento hermanos.
If you dig what I’m laying down here, you might want to follow me on Twitter (@bpcote1). Most of my tweets are retweets of the media pros who I follow.
One final note: I want to thank MC3 Glenn Slaughter (USS Nimitz) for inspiring me to start a blog. He does an MC-centric blog called “I am your eyes” (http://usnavymc.blogspot.com/). Check it out.
