Comments: I just wanted to say thank you to all of the NRD Dallas Chiefs who trained me during my induction process. Thanks to all of my fellow new Chiefs who went through it with me (AMEC Beltran, NCC Helms, NCC MUrray, QMC Kemp, and STGC Alicea). Thanks to my family for your unwaivering support. Thanks to all of my junior Sailors who busted their tails to help me succeed. Finally, this is awesome to be on here to sign in as a Chief. Been waiting for this my whole career.

Comments: I Retire 1 July 93 and have been working ever since. I know a number of people in the Navy and receive Navy News today daily and try to keep up on what's going on in today's Navy. I see the Pentagon is looking to change the retirement system. From what I have read I don't think it is a very good idea. I believe that we should change the retirement system for senators and congressmen to what the rest of us have. Sincerely yours, Christopher R. Wheeler, DCCM(SW) USN RETIRED

Comments: I think I've probably logged in before, but not sure. Have been retired for 37 years now, and still stay in touch with many former shipmates. It was a great career, but I'm seeing a different Navy than the one I spent my career in. I see where CPO's are having to spend an inordinate amount of their time preparing for advancement, performing community service duties and gaining advanced education, instead of getting the job done, training both whitehats and junior officers, and taking care of their troops. Advanced education and the rest is commendable, but should not be a mandatory part of advancement requirements. If my Chief had spent all his time worrying about his own advancement, how much time would he have had to spend getting me prepared to relieve him?

Duty Stations: USS Steinaker DD 863, NRD Washington, DC, FLTASWCENATL, Norfolk, Va, USS Reeves CG24, USS Towers DDG9, SRF Subic, PI
Comments: Retired in December, 1992 at NAS JAX, Fla. 3 years later with a Marine Mechanics Certificate, good liberty in Titusville and Daytona, was on a silver bird to Guam. Have been there ever since. Have work in some interesting positions, but now am working as a UXO Tech (hardest school I have ever attended) and I was a Gram Tech!!! Try to go fishing as much as possible on the Potluck with Chino, (best friend and fellow Chief). And of course take care of the homestead, the old lady and a few dogs.

Duty Stations: USS ESSEX CVA 9; USS HORNET CVA12; USS VALCOUR AVP 55 where I made Chief (PHC) Atlantic & Pacific Combat Camera Groups; Armed Forces Combat Motion Picture Team "Navy" MACV RVN
Comments: Played Golf at NAS North Island yesterday and saw a bunch of CPO Selectees jogging around the perimeter. I was the only one to make it aboard the VALCOUR at that time and my harassment (initiation that is) started at 0001 at sea and continued until Liberty Call in Malaga Spain. We'd been in the Persian Gulf for 6 month and as The "Boot Chief" I learned my Spanish -- Cinco Cervesas!
