My son passed his E5 exam in the last cycle while he was in prototype. I just kept Googling for "Navy Petty Officer Exam Results." I found a link to the list online through the Navy "All Hands" magazine. The current cycle results should come out around the 4th week of May.

Quick questions: What is the web address to see the advancement exam results? When? I know they are posted this month sometime. E5 test.

Great experience at Power School graduation last Friday.  The quest speaker was the most recent CO of the PCU CVN-78, he congratulated the graduates then told them of the challenges ahead, both at proto-type and the fleet.  My son is now on the Jersey Turnpike headed to Ballston Spa.  Congratulation to all!!!

I must apologize for my oversight.  Of course we will be very proud of all the young sailors, both hardworking women and men, crossing the podium.  Thanks for the reminder.

David, remember there are young women as well crossing that stage.

Very proud of all the young men who will cross that stage on Friday.  One more hurdle tomorrow morning and it is time to take it easy for a few days.

I am a member of the United States Submarine Veterans base in Goose Creek and we meet once a month.  We have over 350 members and have over 100 at every meeting.  Charleston was a huge sub base back in the 50's to 90's  There is no stronger bond I have ever experienced than that between submariners and especially nuclear trained submariners.

When my son (the Nuke) comes home on leave he goes shooting with a ranch owner somewhere between "Nowhere" and "Goodbye." There is a wide age difference between the two of them but they have one thing in common -- they are/were both Nukes (the ranch owner served back in the early '80s). It's fun just to listen to them talk about life. Half of it I don't understand but that's OK because they understand each other and my son has a good friend. The point of me relating this is -- sometimes those who share a common life experience (e.g., nuclear) keep a friendship (camaraderie) that lasts forever. You can never have enough friends.
