    Heh. It's a wild ride.

    It's amazing I've only been in the Navy for 8 months and I'm already an E-4.

    So, is that P.O. 3rd class? Or first class? I can never remember. :eek:

    In any event, well done my young man, well done indeed.

    Just keep your head on straight and don't go trying to throw your weight around, you will be alright.

    Do you have a ship assignment yet? I am afraid I don't know much about how Navy SOP is structured....:eek:

    **** no. I'm still training. I just passed A school. Now I go to power school for another 6 months...then I go to prototype.

    Once I'm done I get 25 Grand as a bonus and I'll probably be 2nd Class by that time.


    I'm Petty Officer 3rd Class. I'm an Electrician's Mate....right now I'll be on hold til I go to power school to get my Nuke Designation.

    It's awesome because I'm only 20 Years old right now. Hell if I work my *** off in 6-10 Years I can make chief quite easily.

    Damn Navy, they'll promote anyone!

    Good on you Jiro. Be aware that being an NCO means a lot more than just a few extra $$$ a month - it's a real responsibility so take it seriously. I was 28 when I made E-7 and many thought I was to young to be a Senior NCO . Since I've always been a dick - I adapted very well at the young age...

    Good job jiro. I take it you haven't shot holes in the roof of that barracks yet? Sorry I had to do it.

    LOL

    Just a note your not geting $25k all at once. They are nice and break it down. you will get $12.5k then then 6.25 half way through your enlistment and the last 6.25 towards the end I believe.

    But if you do get all $25K I think you should get a Nighthawk for congrad yourself....
