Just to clarify a tad-Not my intent to start a pissing contest-I meant hard sea trades as well as Naval Officers. Someone said you would note early on in a conversation whether someone is 'seasoned' and you are indeed correct. I see a MS with a gold SSI and I immediately have a little 'extra' respect before that conversation commences. It works both ways of course. For some of the young guys/gals, when they are bumped up to the next level, it's a pride thing. I have no problem with that.
