    Oooo I love this topic. In one breathe, we are preaching that time in service isn't a determinant in being a good sailor. The next is bashing <12 year Chiefs. Highly ironic if you ask me. If you think you having nothing to learn from a person because they have less time in than you, then you are largely mistaken. This is regardless of rank. By assuming you know better than a board of MCPOs, the senior officers chairing the board, the flag that signs off on the selections, the mess that ranked and initiated them, and even the CO who signed their eval to get them there in the first place is pure arrogance. Leadership is the biggest factor for selection, if you don't have it, it doesn't matter how many MOVSMs or JPMEs you have. Most, if not all, Chiefs credit their anchors to their troops and by implying they haven't earned them, degrades every sailor who helped them get there. I was initiated with a 6 1/2 year chief and 19 year chief, both are stellar leaders who earn their anchors everyday.

    Good luck to everyone tomorrow. All this waiting will soon be over. Remember no matter what the outcome tomorrow, remember at the end of the day regardless of if you are a first class, chief, or officer, our sailors still look up to us and it is our job to take care of them. Doing that is what got us to this point and continuing to do that will push us farther in our career.

    My wife.... without skipping a beat. She is the only person throughout my 17 1/2 years that's has pushed me harder than I have pushed myself. Every time I have been up and fell, she kept whispering in my ear that it is going to be ok. She is a strong and praying woman and I know that she prays over me. Not just to finally be told "Yes", but to be thankful for the Blessings that we do have. I remember when I was on the brink of PTS in 2010, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where to begin if I had to go home and support a wife plus two children. She is the one that said that it didn't matter and God will provided for us and already had a plan. Here it is some years later with more setbacks....for lack of better terms, of continually being passed over; she's still the same rock. If it weren't for her, I would have given up before the fight even started. Sorry about the long post. I just thought that I would say a word or two, but the more I thought about how good she has been to and for me, the more my fingers kept moving. I hope everyone has a great day. Prayerfully, I hope to see a lot of " I made it" post Thursday night when I log on and I will get chance to post the same on Friday morning....I'm in Japan. Peace

    To change the subject a little I would like to talk about humility. Recently I purchased my gold chevron's with pride. A shipmate who saw me with them said they never want to go "gold" and that by 12 years that you should be a chief. I think it is important to remember this year whether we are selected or not that everyone has a career that is different. If you make it your first time up with less than 12 years I'm happy for you, however it does not make me a bad sailor because I haven't made it. No two careers are alike, please show others respect and dignity as results come out. Others have fought for years for this chance. To the ones that are lucky that never have to know what it's like to be not selected Im happy for you, please stay humble. Take time to celebrate with fellow selects and take time to recognize the disappointment others might be having. It's important to change the culture of thinking that if you're not selected that you're a bad sailor or that you "suck". There's always a need to improve whether are you selected or not. Stay humble stay hungry and most importantly continue doing what you're doing, not to make chief but because you have pride in your work and you want to see other sailors succeeding. Lastly, I take pride in my gold chevron's . I am seasoned and I've been through a lot. My career is unlike any others but I think it's experience that helps build a leader. I love the dynamic and diverse group of people that make up the Navy, and that will one day make up the Chiefs' mess.

    I have official confirmation from my Chief that he's sick and tired of me pestering him every five minutes for the last month about the results.

    Hello Shipmates. It is never too early to start prepping for next year’s board. The common thing I see here is you guys list what YOU have done. MOVSM, PPME, JPME, whatever……At this pay grade, it is not about what you can do. Being a leader is about what you can make your Sailors do. Let’s say 3 of your Sailors earned their MOVSM, that would look a lot better than YOU getting yours, right? When I read posts, it is mostly about me, me, me. That is not going to work. The focus should be on how do I set my Junior Sailors up for success and how I can make a positive impact on the command. Just my .02 cents.

    Good timing! We are assembling the snoopy team and our forum SEAL team members for a few recon missions. All intel will be gathered and disseminated after @HawkISback gives it a reality check. Does the CNP have a smile, frown or smirk? Away the Snoopy team away!!!

    I think I know what papasmurf is trying to say. It gets very frustrating to us First Classes that have been a First for a long time and we are getting close to retirement. I am tired of seeing my airman pick up Chief, Senior Chief, LDO, or Warrant. I have been an LPO consistently over my last three tours. I have my B.S. degree, PPME, all kinds of awards, all kinds of quals. All my people that worked for me, I have done my job pushing them on the quals, education, and etc... And I will continue to train my junior personnel to go further in their careers than I have in mine. Training my people and watching them grow is what makes it all worth it. But it is really, really frustrating when you get a Chief that you seem to giving more training to than receiving training from and your Senior and Master Chief come to you for answers or to get things done and not the Chief. I am sure it is made known in the mess and I don't see it happening. But when you have more "checks in the box" and more leadership listed in your evals than the person that made it you have to ask. I have been told over and over. I don't know. the same thing with why I haven't picked up. Every Master Chief and Senior Chief that has looked at my stuff all have said the same thing that they have no idea why I haven't picked up. When I have talked to those that were board members they have stated that they remember seeing my evals on final selections. But do not know why I didn't get selected. When asked what I need to work on to make me more competitive I have gotten the reply keep doing what you have been doing. It is not a matter of if just a matter of when you get picked up.

    That's not a shipmate, that's a douche. Sadly the world is full of toxic people who try to build themselves up by tearing you down. I'm an 18-year first who's been up for Chief since 2005. And you know what? I'm awesome! I'll be awesome if I make Chief, and I'll be awesome if I don't. It sounds like you've done a great job at being awesome yourself.

    Someone tell NAC they can't post anything else until they post the result schedule. Heart skips a beat every time I see a post from them.

    I remember the fy14 result hysteria started like this and went on to March 5. Tomorrow is a possibility, but don't hold your breath. Since the FTS/SELRES E8/9 selection board starts on March 6, I expect results to be out by then so that the records of selectees are shoved aside. I understand selectees have ten days from release of results to decline commission, but it would be make sense to release results before the board convenes. What I can say with 100% certainty is that the results will be out by March 15th.

    Alright you with Dallas Cowboys hat, over there! <points to the left> And you, with the beer bong ballcap over there!! <points to the right> Now, I haven't done this in a while, but today at 5PM we're all going to start a campfire, join hands, dance in a big circle and sing Tra-la-la songs in joyish contentment while drinking some dark ale (or milk with cookies), or even that NEIIPA!!

    To Someone Who is Struggling in a Dark Place With Little Hope… By: Taylorddortitude “Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to get there, the time will pass anyways.” To someone who is struggling in a dark place with little hope…..do not give up. Do not loose sight of the vision you see when you close your eyes and your head hits the pillow. Don’t push away the thoughts that first enter your mind when you awake each day. Don’t tell yourself you’re not good enough. Choose to accept the challenges you are presented with. Overcome them, learn from them, teach others about them. See them as obstacles that you will overcome throughout your journey in route to your destination. You were meant for something great. You are capable of becoming whoever and whatever you want to become. Don’t back down. Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you. Live each day as if you will not see tomorrow. Love yourself, love others and be the light that others need in a dark world. Tell others about your dreams, but show them results through your actions. Surround yourself passionate people, people who remind you how amazing you are. When someone tells you that you are great, believe them and believe in yourself. Follow your heart and do things that fulfill you. Don’t let anyone direct your life or tell you which roads to take. Whatever it is that you want in this life, just don’t stop.

    Geesh. Give the rank the respect commensurate with it. Give the person the respect they deserve. Who cares if they have an anchor or bars or chevrons or stripes? To me, it doesn't matter if you're an 8 year Chief, a 6 year LT, a 19 year PO1, or a 6 month SN. I will refer to you by your rank and by the level of responsibility expected of your position. I will look at you as a leader because I think you're a leader.

    Hang in there! Your future has already been decided and no amount of worrying is going to change what has already been foretold! Hug your family, go for a run, play a game, read a book, enjoy life. The time will come! When it does, you will wish you had done those things before the S appeared in your record! Breathe. Now exhale. Repeat. Keep doing this and eventually it will be over.

    As i read a lot of the comments, one thing that i keep seeing is the "check in the box". FCPO's focusing on SSP/PPME/JPME/USMAPS etc. Yes those things are important no doubt, but make no mistake about it, the most important factor to becoming a Chief is TAKING CARE OF YOUR SAILORS! You don't make Chief because of your accomplishments and qual's etc, you will become a Chief because of your Sailors accomplishments. Your Sailors will get you to Chief, not what you do. If leading, guiding, mentoring, and training your Sailors is not your number one priority, than you need to re-adjust quickly. Cause you won't become a Chief without them. When your Sailors succeed, you succeed as a LPO. When your Sailors fail, you fail. I am sure you all heard that a Chiefs anchors carry weight. It's because we carry the weight of every Sailor that ever worked for us, every Sailor that busted their ***** for us, every Sailor that went above and beyond for us. They are the reason we became Chiefs. My anchors belong to my Sailors just as much as they belong to me. So take a hard look at your eval's. If your eval's are talking about YOU, that's a good indication as to why you are still a FCPO. Your eval's should speak to everything your Sailors accomplished. Stop checking boxes and lead Sailors. Cause that's what Chiefs do. And don't just lead your division Sailors, you lead ALL Sailors. I tell people all the time i have two kids at home and 322,000 at work. Every Sailor is my Sailor! Good luck and i will keep all of you in my prayers. I hope you all receive that coveted "S" next month.
