@HawkISback,

I've known you on this forum for a very, very long time and have seen you move up in rank over the years. In between making rank and getting kicked off this forum here and there :D , I've seen the knowledge and experience you've gained and then shared with others – I saw that transformation that was leading to Chief.

I am very happy you made Chief, and I had to go get my daughter to tell her the good news that you had made it. Whatever you do, please continue helping others and whatever happens don't change. Just continue being yourself because you were already Chief's material.

It's good to see that kind of recognition on here, Tony.  Thank you for what you do and for allowing us to come here and bond and learn and grow.  Honestly, I didn't think I stood a chance even with the high numbers.  I was an AE on AD and now I'm struggling trying to be a good BM even though I know very little about it.  It has been a humbling experience but a good one.  Thank you to everyone on this forum.  If anyone needs anything, please do not hesitate to reach out....

It's about paying it forward now.

Just wanted to say congratulations to all that were selected. I was one of the few to get the "S" and it still don't feel real.  Thank you all for everything I know for a fact that this forum has helped so many Sailors.

And just to give you another laugh, for the last couple of days, and more so today, it was restart Apache, restart SQL, restart php-fpm. Then, when that didn't work (because of all the F5s, and no memory) it was forceful reboot - chewing gum and band-aids for several days. Then there was all the security alerts about the server which was caused by all of the PMs, notifications, emails and whatnot because the serve was not used to the gazillion % increase. Fun though...

I NEVER thought I would be here, I'm playing with house money.  I'll do my best to protect my people so they never deal with the same stuff I did.

Selected as well. @Tony are you going to start a Selectee Form this year?

Not this year Surf AT, the stars are not aligned to support this. The bigger thing that happened was that year I accidently deleted 83 accounts, a majority Chiefs. The new software had a flawed filtering system. That was the main support to get the Sel going. I can still get a private thread going for SEL, now that I think about it, after the public release. Just let me know, but it may take a few days cuz' of my schedule. I know you all will disappear but that is doable.

Got called in to do a CDB and me and my buddy were standing there as the captain explained that the entire command only made two Chiefs then he followed it up with no those two individuals are standing in this room.  Nearly broke down! What an absolute blessing!

      WASHINGTON — The Navy’s warships have been spending less time at sea and more time under costly and lengthy repairs since 2011, according to a government watchdog report released Tuesday. A review of 151 surface warships by the Government Accountability Office showed worsening maintenance delays, more breakdowns requiring repairs and a rising number of working ship parts removed and used elsewhere due to parts shortages in the industry supply chain.
