Happy 122nd Birthday Navy Chief Petty Officers
What Sailor in the Navy doesn't remember his first Chief? Boatswains Mate Chief Robert Webb was my first Chief as the Company Commander for Company 929 from July to September of 1975 at Recruit Training Command/Naval Training Center San Diego, California. Mike Cantin was our Recruit Chief Petty Officer. I'm still in touch with him FORTY years later.
Navy Chiefs celebrate 1 April 1893 as their birthday. Happy Birthday Navy Chiefs.
For those readers who remember our time together at U.S. Naval Security Group Activity Yokosuka, Japan - "We've got the best Chiefs from "A" (Joe Ahola) to "Z" (Phil Zmuda).
