Commodore has a nice ring to it, now that you mention it.   Seriously - it's like an Army captain.  No big deal.
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 9:54:44 AM EST
Are you in the military?

If not, call him by his first name, or Mr. whatever.

Impossible to make it to retirement as an O3 on a traditional officer track.

Chances are, he is prior enlisted, Seaman to Admiral program or somesuch.

don't forget to throw in a comment about the navy being more than 50% gay.
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 9:59:37 AM EST
I always called my retired colonel boss, 'Colonel.'  Not because I had to, but because it was respectful.



If he'd retired a lieutenant, I'd have called him 'Lieutenant Dan.'
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 10:00:06 AM EST
Dig deeper. was he diciplined down to that rank or was he promoted from enlisted to officer late in his career.

The first is a DQ the second is respectful depending on how and why he got promoted...(served honorably from seaman to CPO to Lieutenant.)

That's a program?! And yet when I made that offer I was a "pervert."

Depends on whether or not he derives his self worth from his Naval career or not.

By his name

nobody retires as an O-3 unless its a medical, probally was QMP'd because he didn't make O-4 in time
He is just trying to use it for some possible for some leverage in the job market
always hire a vet if possible, just call him by his name

No, he's a headhunter.  I'm trying to get a job through him, which is why I'm asking. Just trying to be respectful and hopefully stand out a bit.

It is very possible to retire as an 03 especially these days since promotions have slowed down again.  

The requirement to retire as a commissioned officer if you were enlisted previously is at least 10 years commissioned service.  In the naval services you normally pin on 04 around the 10-11 years of commissioned service mark. If someone decides he wants to retire as soon as eligible, and not serve the obligatory 3 years an O4,O5, and O6 serves after promotion they can decide to retire at the end of their 10th year of commissioned as long as they have 20 years of combined service.

Sorry... I missed that
well in written form   Michael Johnson (USN-RET) / example of name /
on the phone you could you mention Sir alot ( but on phone you'd be wingin it anyways)
you got any relatives that were, are in, that you can ramble on about ( not much harpin he has to know his accomplishments are better )
I never had that problem, the only two I ever ran into that had a higher rank, were desk jocks in the Military as well and, only through buzz words & locals at me like they was @ a Hollywood Screen Test

until a retiree gets to O-6, they are just Mr. to me,  Headhunter? Mr. or first name, after all he gets paid by the hiring company, so get noticed with your resume and record of accomplishments, not by your salutatory  greeting.

Respect is due him if he was a Mustang; if he was a career Officer and retired as a Lt. than call him anything, but don't call him late for dinner.

I was in the military.  My dad is a retired military officer.

I feel zero need to call any retired military person by their rank.  If they don't like it, they can get over it.. or start calling me Mr dskeet when they address me
