The Navy's quotas for FY07 Chiefs came out recently. The bottom dropped out of the percentage for my rate. It kinda figures, this is the first year I'm eligible for Chief.

 

Advancement board results should be out sometime in the next two weeks.

 

Gee, my dad joined the Navy as an E1 and in a little over two years he was an E7!

 

His career was substantially boosted by WWII, as I'm sure you guessed. He enlisted Dec 1, 1941. He was part of the original crew of the 2nd USS Wasp (CV18), built in Quincy, MA across the bay from where we live now. Prior to that he was stationed in Iceland. He was wounded by a Japanese plane on the same day as my birthday, years later. Not his lucky day, I guess.....

Navy Chief selection board results are out.

 

I was looking for the results but hadn't seen them as of yesterday. Good luck to all.

Our division didnt have one CT or IT make it. Which is wierd since we have guys that have just about everything done including yr long deployments to Iraq, LPO positions @ sea and shore, qualifications out the arse, dont know about schooling thou (that might have been what they were looking for) etc...

this is a question for andrew.anderson. i was reading the hood dampner thread and you said you were going to see your wife, good for you, she sounds like a good woman. my question is do the service men/women get a R&R (rest and recuperation) like i did when i was in Viet Nam?

we got a three day R&R in country (Vung Tua) if you were luckly and a seven day either in Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong, or Hawaii. if so how does it work now?

our thoughts are with you and stay focused.

From what I understand the MCPON had stressed that they were to look speciffically at the Qualifications part, damn the rest of the record including awards, evals, positions held. For Submariners they were to look speciffically for COW, DOOW, and Duty Cheif.

 

Me thinks this is why I was failed. When I left ye' ol' San Juan I was a 2nd class with nearly a year of being the LPO under my belt and 1.5 years of being a second. I left the boat for shore duty burned up and having never qualified COW. I qualified everything else that a 2nd class and 1st class PO needed to be qualified but nothing a Chief should be qualified. I made 1st class my first time up while on shore duty, but never had a chance to go back to sea as a rider to get qualifed Chief stuff, we were to buisy working.

 

Oh, well it's probably for the better. After the school that I'm in I'll be leaving for Subase Bagor in Washington to be the Vertical Launch division LPO on the Ohio (SSGN 726).

Soldiers deployed for 365 consecutive days get a 2 week R&R to the location of thier choice (as long as it is not a travel restriced country or area).

I was looking for your name on the list today and didn't see it. Sorry to hear it... but, next year could very easily be your year to put on the khaki.

 

jj808 - yeah, I definiely looked over the CT list but again was surprised more by who i DIDN't see on the list.

Shoutout to all Military, past and presently enlisted. I have many friends in the Military, and most of them either have or are currently working on their degrees, despite what Mr. Kerry thinks. They also love their jobs and love serving their country.

 

Thanks you guys for all that you do.

I have a few customers that have recently returned from Iraq, A-stan, or one of the many Shitastans.

Most are Army Infantry that have been in the shit for too long.

It amazes me how these guys have done one or two tours, and can't wait to return to harm's way.

 

"Thank you" for those that have, are now, and will serve.
