  • Anyone ever seen one of these?

    Another document I brought home (copy, actually) - has anyone ever seen one other than this - and yes, I have cropped it to reduce the size - it is a 'full sized' certificate.....

    My chief has one, but I thought it was because he was head of some department that was taken into HLS.

    I could be wrong though.

      Kind of like being a plankholder, I guess.
      I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

              My father has one as well. He was a member of a DMORT team and when the reorganization of FEMA happended he was issued the certificate because the DMORT's were rolled into homeland security.

                  I was issued one of those certificates. They were giving to everybody that was an employee of the DHS when it was formed. It is like a plankowner certificate. I was in the Coast Guard when I got mine. I would venture to guess that there were one to two hundred thousand of them issued. I thought at the time that it seemed like a waste of a few thoudand dollars to print and distribute a bunch of certificates just because an agency of the government answers to a new acronymn.

                    Add another one here. While I was with NEST (Nuclear Emergency Search Team, now known as the Nuclear Emergency Support Team), we were all given these certificates shortly after the DHS was established.

                      In the old days... when a new navy ship went out to see and came back after the maiden voyage, they'd replace the deck planks. The original crew would save them as souvenirs, hence plankholders. Or so the story goes.

                        Plank Owners

                        Now days .....if you are on the first crew of a new ship you are considered a "Plank Owner".
                        To better say this.....If you are assigned to a new ship as it's being built and it's Commissioned...you are a "Plank Owner"
