CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (March 6, 2006) -- Navy CWO3 Jeffrey D. Fishels mother should have listened to him 27 years ago when he was 17 and said he wanted to be a Marine.
After telling my mother of my choice to join the Marine Corps, she said no, said 44-year-old Fishel, from San Diego. She told me the only way she would sign is if I joined another branch. I chose the Navy.
These days, Fishels wearing the Marine Corps digital pattern uniform, serving as platoon commander for Mobile Assault Platoon 3, Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment working with Regimental Combat Team 5.

One Tought Navy CWO!!!
CWO = Citizen - Warrior - Outstanding!
My deepest respect goes out to my brother Warrant.
I'm a 57 year old Army Reserve warrant and I say
Go get 'em, CHIEF!!
CWO3 Fishel = "One TOUGH Navy". oooOOOOHHHRAAAHHH...
I'm a 58 year old retired Navy Chief Warrant with 30 years active,and I support all my brother Warrants regardless of branch of service. Thanks for your service.
My office co-worker, a Navy reserve, already served one tour in Iraq. All of these guys volunteered and they proudly served. These guys are the best American.
I say so. just under 9 years in the USMC.
Back in the day, more than 20 years ago, I was in a Marine Detachment Afloat.
The Navy Chiefs knew everything about our ship, our fleet, and the Mediterranean.
Their advice was priceless.

Sargent, I don't want to turn this into a love fest, but thank you for your service, I enjoyed my time working with USMC during Desert Storm. Again thank you.
Thanks for the ping!
One of the sayings during Nam was,
"You can always tell a Warrant, . . . you just can't tell 'em much!"
I took it as a compliment.
And, of course the other thing about Warrant Officers is they rarely can spell "Sergeant." ;)
