Making E 8 or 9 in any branch requires much more that just showing up every day. In my opinion it is one of the greatest accomplishments a military man or woman can reach. It is the senior NCOs that keep the military at the peak readiness for our next conflict and there will always be a next conflict.
I also know there are several members on this board that have reached this level. Thanks for your service and thanks for a lifetime of commitment.

Wow...I'm a little late to the party, but better late than never I guess. I spent 22 1/2 years in the Army. Two tours in Vietnam. I retired in 1990 as an E-8 1SG. I can honestly say I enjoyed almost all of it, and would do it all over again today if I thought my country needed me.
