Welcome to the API Chief


Dear Senior Chief Petty Officer, "Chief"

Welcome to the American Patriot Institute.
You have been unanimously and enthusiastically accepted by the current membership. We welcome you Brother. Your experience and wisdom will certainly be quite an asset to our organization.

If you have a picture of yourself in uniform, either your graduation picture or another, please post it on your website. One of us will capture it and add it to the image map, which will link directly to your blog or website. As a Resident Scholar, we ask that you capture the logo from one of our sites and post it on your blog, along with a link list to the other Scholars. Feel free to copy the link list from any one of our sites.

As someone who has spent his entire life dedicated to our cause, your insight and wisdom will not only be greatly appreciated, but sought after by those of us who lack your experience as a career Military Man.

Welcome aboard, Sir.

Respectfully yours,

Welcome, Chief.

(I called a Chief "sir" once. That was a freakin' mistake.)

I was stationed on a tin can in the Med back in '76. One day I'm in the SupRad and my LPO, an E6 told me to do something or other. I replied with a very sarcastic "Yes Sir!". He says in a loud voice, "You don't have to call me sir, I know who my parents are". The DivOff, an O3, who was sitting at his desk, heard the exchange or, at least the part he was intended to hear, and went instantly beet red and says "Petty Officer Allen, Do you mean to imply that because I am an officer, I do not know who my parents are!?" The Lt was pissed! My LPO was laughing and says "No, that isn't what I said". And it was off to the races. All the enlisted pukes in the place are trying their best not to laugh out loud and the Lt looked to be on the verge of a stroke. The whole thing went on for a half hour or better.

Good times!
