Cmdr. Cinday Murray salutes her brother her brother, Cheif Aviation Ordnanceman Robert Williamson, after 30 years of being apart

Also someone needs to remind her to bring her hand to her head not her head to her hand when you return a salute

/but very touching

And how did I not notice "chief" being misspelled SIX TIMES in that article as "cheif."

'Our Navy is awesome and to find out that they are both serving does not surprise me. There is a bond among siblings and where one is serving you can usually find another,' Simon said.

How touching. They started off as semen from the same area to end up being seamen in the same area!

"Within only 15 minutes of giving her brother's name to her leading chief petty officer (LCPO), the pair were on the phone. Chief Petty Officer Hospital Corpsman Jeremy Simon, and he made the siblings' connection possible."

'...both are in the Navy'?

Is that a euphemism?

If only there was a site for Department of Defense personnel to find contact information of other DoD personnel...

She searched so hard to find her brother.....yet it took 30 years to think "hey, I'll just call dad and ask!"

What a moran.

She probably didn't give a shiat about searching for him until she hit menopause and then due to hormonal shifts got a bug up her ass about reconnecting with family. She probably called her dad within the first few days of the search.

I remember when I discovered that I was in the Navy. It was a surprise.

So 'after years of looking for her brother', just picking up the phone and calling her father got her connected in minutes?

Wonder why their mother didn't feel the need to keep up with her son?

She didn't know he was in the Navy until her father told her.  If you'd read the article you'd know that she found her brother within minutes of gaining that information.

Better article:  http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/sep/27/murray-williamson-navy-sib l ings-reunion/


FTA:  The two siblings share a father but have different mothers. The two halves lost touch when Williamson's side of the family moved to Northglenn, Colo. Murray lived in Englewood. Only 20 miles separated them, but it was enough.

Are Navy Husbands as bad as Navy Wives?

Do they get together and discuss how Navy Husbands are the strongest husbands? Do they wear the matching t-shirts?
 
2013-09-29 11:53:50 AM
So, now that they discovered each other, are they going to get reassigned?

You know, to prevent this from happening?

He's a Chief Petty Officer, E-7. E-7's a bit more of a big deal in the Navy than the other services. She's an O-5 (equivalent of a Lt. Col. in the other services).

Ordnanceman is his job. He is a Chief Petty Officer in rank. I, too, was a Chief Petty Officer, as in Chief Aviation Structural Mechanic.

They're already in different units, at different installations.

She outranks him by quite a bit.  He is enlisted - an E7.  She is an officer, an O5.

The most junior officer outranks the most senior enlisted.  So if you include Warrant Officers, she is 10 spots above him on the pecking order (not counting W1 and W5 - if the Navy uses them).

He's an NCO, she's an officer. But they're at least comparable in terms of grade in their respective areas. She outranks him, but NCOs get a lot of respect from officers, and rightly so.

I don't know what kind of Navy you people have these days. If my grandfather found out there was dust on one of his ships, he'd have someone swinging from the yardarm.
Then, he'd put that WAVE in the story on dust duty. Broads are good at that shiat.

I thought for sure that would be a link to an article about reunited siblings having sex with each other.

These two are probably already battening one another's hatches.

Did they have sex before they realized they were siblings?

The US Navy Chief's Mess is one of the most connected, tight knit groups on the face of the planet. Chiefs can find other Chiefs, and this Commander knew it, that's why she went to *her* Chief the moment she found out her brother was one.

Ya, I get that part.  I'm having trouble parsing that second sentence as written.  It doesn't seem very sentencey.

Seacop: I've noticed we have a lot of Chiefs on fark. We should start a mess...


Wherever two or more gather, you have a mess.  So we're pretty messy already.

Ah, I get it, and yeah, that's not a wonderful sentence, but as pointed out further up in the thread, when they misspell Chief as many times as they did, expectations should be pretty low.

I see that to save costs in more and more newsrooms, the position of editor has been eliminated.  Also, journalists increasingly suck when communicating via the written word.  That being said, good on the brother and sister reuniting.
