    you were top junior sailor for that particular quarter. Basically the higher ups felt that you showed awesomeness ( for lack of better word)

    Why is he unhappy about it?


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    He's trying to explain it to me via e-mail right now. Evidently he thinks it's embarassing because it's from his last command but it's being given to him here.

    I know he's gotten it before and been happy about it. I honestly don't get him.

    My DH got those when he was AD. Award, recognition, your picture taken, looks good on your evals, can help with promotion/rank.... and more.

    And something for him to be proud about.

    Not sure why he's unhappy about it


    Added: DH said it should also help with him getting a NAM(Navy Achievement Medal)

    Also could help with chances of getting nominated for Junior Sailor of the Year

    Okay I kind of get it now...It's because he's an officer now. I still don't understand why that would matter or make him unhappy.

    That's the green one with the two orange lines right? I'm like 99 percent sure he already has that.
