Going to California...

Well, I got called last week and it looks like I'll be trading in my Chief's anchors for Chief Warrant Officer bars June 1st. I was pretty shocked to say the least...to finally make it to the top of my rating and now to become an Officer.

By the looks of my avatar you can see where I'm headed. It's a high endurance cutter out of San Diego, CA. It's something that I've always wanted to do: Deck Watch Officer on one of the biggest cutters in our fleet. Only the Polar Class ice-breakers and the new National Security Cutters are bigger. But, as a Texan, it's going to be hard to leave Corpus Christi! But, it'll only make the return that much sweeter.

My wife asked me what I wanted as a gift...so I've got a new IOM-painted Heritage Grille ordered from one of our sponsors on its way! By the way, thanks GM Parts Direct!!!

So, if anyone has any do's/don'ts about living in the San Diego area please PM me! Oh...I'll probably put up some self-serving pics of the Commissioning Ceremony.

Semper Paratus!

Congrats on your well deserved promotion. I grew up in SO Cal, It's' a diffrent place. If you have kids and if there not "street smart" try to get them educated. San Diego is beautiful. Keep an eye on the street gangs, by that make sure your family gets briefed on all the areas of SD that might be of concern. Best of luck...

Congratulations, Chief!! What an amazing accomplishment.

I just got back from San Diego, and it is gorgeous!! My son lives out there near Qualcomm Stadium. VERY nice area.
