Warner is co-opting the power of modern technology setting up a portion of his website to collect messages of appreciation for the Virginia-based Navy SEALs.

A member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Warner says although the highly classified Navy commandos can never be celebrated with parades or press conferences, he believes many Virginians, want to say thank you.

Approximately 600 messages have been posted on the site since it appeared Thursday, 226 others ‘liked’ it on Facebook, and more than 600 watched a companion video on YouTube.

Sen. Warner plans to deliver all the comments to Navy SEAL commanders in a scheduled meeting later this week.
