As some of you may remember I was selected for Chief and have been doing the whole transition thing for the last six weeks. Well, it's all over. I am now AEC (AW) Sperry. My pinning was Friday night and I am so happy it's over. It's like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Unfortunately, my left knee didn't hold up and I had it scoped this morning, which is why some of this may be rambling due to the huge amounts of pain killers in my body right now. I knew my knee was going to give me problems since I have been running a lot over the last couple of years. It was worth it though since I weighed about 210ish 2 years ago and am now down to 160. So now I'm on convalescent leave for 2 weeks. At least I'll have time to catch up on the 10,000 posts I have missed... :D

Me Friday night:

I offer congrats on the pinning and tell you I have no idea what an AEC (AW) is, but it sounds impotant. Sorry to hear about your knee, but welcome back to The Zone man!

AE is my rate or job (Aviation Electrician's Mate). The C is for Chief Petty Officer (It was AE1, with the 1 standing for Petty Officer First Class. The (AW) is my warfare designator, Aviation Warfare. Now I need to get the knee healed up so I can install my sexy clutch cover from Van.. :D

Congrats :cheers

Sorry about the knee, hope it gets better for ya. :thumbup

I got that good old fashioned Army knee - it comes from running on the same side of the road for 8 years. You know how roads are sloped for water run-off? Not too much lower but after a while it wears ya down in certain places. :(
I seen a few cantelope sized knees in my day as a result of it.
