Re: Little personal news


So i figured I'd would throw a personal update here since I'm active on the brother hood again. Since I started this thread I reported for duty aboard the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower , aka Mighty IKE aka Ike-atraz, in the media department. I started out as a staff writer for the ships' newspaper, then I was sent on temporary duty to the ships cafeteria (mess-decks) for four months, I then returned to the media department to be a rising star and soon to be the new print-shop supervisor, taking the lead on all Ike's Distinguished Visitor products, I tested for E4/Third Class Petty Officer and will be getting the results in a few short weeks. That's the professional side. On the personal side, since moving to VA my wife and I have had a terrible time as far as finding a good place to live and such. When we first got here we had to rush to find a place so going on the word of a few shipmates we chose our current home. Big mistake. In the first two weeks we were here the building next to ours in the complex burned to the ground, about a month later our apartment was broken into and we lost our iPad, PS3, flat screen TV and my wifes brand new laptop. We have renters insurance but sadly it still hasn't come through for us. then we had a lull of peace untill about three months ago when our neighbor got shot in his apartment. The other big complaint is the bills. This is a small apartment and we've had power bills running into the 400s and higher for no reason. Thankfully this is almost over as we are relocating to military housing at the end of this month. So that's it for me right now thanks for caring enough to read.

Hello Zach, I am fairly new to the board, but just wanted to first say thank you for your service. With Veteran's Day aproaching, it's only fitting to extend my thanks.

Sorry to hear that you had such a difficult time with your housing. I do hope the next place is better for you. Good luck as well with your E4 promotion. Hang in there!

That sucks about your place bro. When you're first starting out in the Military it's hard. In the early 90's I lived off post in a nasty part of town and I was on food stamps. I hope you were insured for all the stuff taken.

Re: Little MORE personal news


Fall advancement results were released today. :) I'm now Mass Communication Specialist Third Class (select) Zach Allan. The select means that the promotion has been announced but not is not yet effective, I will be "frocked" in a couple of weeks which means I will begin to wear the rank insignia and assume the responsibilities of a third class petty officer. After that it's just playing the waiting game until I begin getting paid for my new rank. The Navy is the only service that has the frocking tradition, in other services you don't start wearing a new rank until you are getting paid for it. So any way I'm very excited about that :)
