I am deeply honored and humbled to be selected.  I am grateful to every Master Chief, Senior Chief, and Chief who has mentored me; for every peer who has supported me; and for every Junior Sailor who has given me a reason to strive for this.  I will do all I can to make you proud and to pass on the knowledge you have provided. Congratulations to my fellow Selectees.  May we all have a productive Season filled with memories we can learn from and laugh about in the years to come!

This experience has truly been a blessing for me and my family. With the struggles of my mother's illness and the sacrifices my wife and children have made over the past 12 years I cannot even express in words the gratitude and debt I owe them. All I can do is give the praise and glory to God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Firstly, Congratulations to all of my fellow selectees amongst the many groups going through the phase this season. I myself started with NOSC Toledo but will be continuing with NOSC Raleigh.

It's with great pride that I humbly prepare myself for what's in front of me. I'd like to thank my shipmates and leaders alike for the teamwork and encouragement that's made this possible.

If anyone knows SBCS John J. Garner, please let the Senior Chief know he's been one of my biggest supporters both personnally and professionally.

I would like to thank Master Chief Jay Schippers with 1 NCR. Over the last two years as the R3C, he has given me the opportunity to prove myself. Over the last 6 months CECS Scott Johnson became the acting R3C and had continued to push and prod me to become the best LPO of the R3 shop. These two individuals are the main reason that I was selected.

I would also like to thank EOC Bryan Hill. Chief Hill was my introduction to the Navy and how to act as a Chief. I was an old recruit, entered at the age of 35 in 2006, and I have been trying to live up to his expectations ever since. I was a part of Chief Hill's Retirement Ceremony and he had some very kind words and lofty goals for me and the rest of the Retirement Party. I was very happy to finally call him to let him know that I had been selected.

The list is quite long but I would also like to thank EOC Brendan Warner, my first LPO, YNC Deborah Johnson, EAC Robert Braden, LSC Richard Vasquez and EOC Michael Lopez all who were with me in my SU-2 days. As luck would have it, I have been reunited at 1 NCR with EAC, LSC  and EOC, and to be able to call them was a very satisfying experience. EOC Lopez and I joined the Navy together and to have the opportunity to join him is very exciting.

I appreciated all their help over the years, and to those that I did not mention by name, have had a great deal of influence over my Navy career and I will work to carry on the tradition of Navy Chief.
