That time of year again

Only means something to ya if you're a Chief. Pinned anchors on 35 new ones today in the Hangar Bay, and we are of course all exhausted from the team-building exercises last night. Of course, the process started six weeks ago, and in addition to all of the usual work-busy we've had training-busy as we tried to jam enough knowledge and new ideas into their heads that we had failed to impart while they were still First Class Petty Officers.

Wow. Nine years since I got my first pair of anchors. Where did the time go?
