The closer I get to the end of my career, the more I want to end it as a Chief. When I was coming up being a member of the Chiefs’ mess was something that never really occupied my mind. But now that I am knocking on the door, it seems more appealing to me, to be the one that answers the knock rather then does the knocking. Well, CPO results came out this afternoon (I did not make board – so my name was not their) and low and behold some names that I thought would be on their were not. While others were that I thought I would not see. Now I dont begrudge anyone their opportunity, but as I have come up through the ranks I always thought attaining the paygrade of Chief was something that was earned with time and effort. I have lots of run on sentences here but I am just trying to get it out of my head. To me being a Chief is the best prize in the game, and in todays Navy in some cases it just seems like it is handed out without merit. I guess the only thing I can do is work hard study and hope my name is selected before I pull the pin on the job…Just a quick advancement thought
