RE: [Histonet] Thanks for the Input

It seems lately some people take bits and pieces of posts and twist them
around for argument sake. I am sure you are not quoting me?? 

I can speak on the part of the Navy only. Maybe I should have stated that on
my last post. As for the Navy ...While the others are out selling cookies
others must stay behind and pick up the slack. These cookie sellers place
the bake sale on the evaluation which earns them the bullet for a higher
mark. The higher mark means a better chance for promotion. A more
experienced and certified tech may not have the time to sell these cookies
for whatever reason or because they care more about the REAL job than
playing Martha Stewart. Green food coloring is not a counterstain.

Military personnel DO NOT make rank by working at some
bake sales!  Are you insinuating Master Chief Petty
Officers, Sergeant Majors, and Chief Master Sargeants
made rank selling cookies? Rubbish!

I am an Air Force Master Sargeant, worked in histology
for over 17 years out of my 20+ years service. I
worked at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in
Washington DC from 1997-2000 and had the pleasure to
work for the Army, Navy, and civilians histology
technicians and managers.  The promotions I did see
were from hard work not only from the job but to the
military and civilian communities.  It's called the
whole person concept!

In the future please screen your e-mail for
appropriateness before you broadcast to a large
audience like histonet.
