If you ever meet a Navy veteran, ask them to tell you a story about their favorite Chief. You will learn how a Chief has influenced them to become the person they are today. When I reflect on my time in the service there is one Chief that I will always remember. He got to work before us, left work after us and maintained the aircraft right by our side. He was never too good to perform any job, no matter how dirty. He called us out on our nonsense, inspired us to be our best, and set the standard high for our team.
