    "military intelligence" is an oxymoron!

    My husband got turned down for Chief the first time - no surprise as very few get it the first time, but when he was turned down the second time it made him and lots of his contemporaries wonder.   I had seen and heard several times that you should send for your military records - check them for errors just like you would do for your credit report.  Sure enough there it was -- a claim that he'd turned down an invite into the  LDO (Limited Duty Officer) program.  Heh.

    Seems years earlier he'd applied and (we thought) never heard back.  Not so.  They approved him and sent the paperwork to his last command who never forwarded it to him.  

    Got that error corrected and he made CPO the next go round.

    Always check those records and you can't have enough DD214s.  (I heard that so much that over the years that I'm not surprised that in the 18 months since he died, I'm still finding copies of the DD214 in different places - I probably have 15 copies of it).

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
