Yeah, from my recollection, which is hazy due to all the Scotch I drank while talking to the British nukes and playing darts, the RN has their senior enlisted run the reactor and ER, and have nuke officers that only do nuke poo poo, usually drawn from the enlisted ranks (?).

Also, aren't all the PLA(N) nuke boats ancient shitheaps?

fantastic! I'm glad they are doing something, and I hope they put something on there about how you ensured that the other sailor got recognition above yourself.

The people selected this week still have to go through senate confirmation and wait for date of rank; most of them will put it on April 1 2025.

There's at least one good CO on there.

There's also an EDO I don't know soon to be named Captain Kolbold which sounds like a dungeons and dragons themed superhero.

too dumb to be probated; not too dumb to be autobanned
The EDO who was my old battalions CO, CDR Troy Bailey, after I left was selected. During the first deployment he skippered a troop on a detachment drowned. CDR Bailey visited the detachment and, per the more junior troops, did not talk to them about what happened, or talk to them at all. He did yell at the OIC and other senior personnel about their projects not being done fast enough, though. Hoorah!

When I was doing my conscription a soldier from the other batallion in our camp drowned when his vehicle broke the ice and sank in a swamp during an exercise. Our CO did a "debrief" with us where his message basically was the "Some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make" speech from Shrek.

I used to keep eyes on the selection lists every cycle just to catch a glimpse what people were up to. We have now gotten to the point where almost everyone I knew are at 20 or very close to.

There is one person I want to see make Master Chief. Hopefully she made CWO4 and I just missed the memo.

Yeah, I got out after one hitch and went to work for the vendor.

A few years ago one of the guys I went to A-school with came through our lab for training... as a chief.
