Best part of holding this rank
Achieved my goal in 1983 !
Then stayed in for 6 more years.
The best time I ever had was being a CMSgt ! Loved being a leader of men in the Aircraft Crash Rescue Career Field .
What are the worst parts of holding this rank?
Saw many who just didn't have the right stuff ! You have to sacrifice ! You have to have a passion for what you do. 25 years later you will know what I mean.
What advice can you share on being selected for this rank?
