    Promotion

    I see that I have just been promoted from Vice Admiral (3 stars) to Admiral (4 Stars). I wonder if I will get a pay raise.

    Senior Chief,

    Advancement is quicker here than in the old canoe club, where it took me 10 yrs to make chief. I've only been here a year and I'm already CNO.

    I wasn't gonna tell 'em...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Is that all ? In my rate (at the time...), it was so full that it took me 11 years to get 1st class P.O.

    What rate were you?

    Folks in my NEC got moved ahead pretty quick (so I can't take all the credit). I was a Nuke Machinist Mate, and didn't even get to the fleet until I was a 2nd class (took me under 2 yrs to make that). I made E-6 in under 5, the only reason it took me another 5 yrs to make Chief was because they cut back on available billets, I made board twice before I finally got it, so I could've potentially made E-7 in under 8yrs if everything lined up just right.

    Congratulations on your fourth star, I am sure that vast amounts of wisdom have poured forth in order for you to obtain such a lofty position.
