Are we talking about the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist pin? In a nutshell it means that he will learn more than just his specific job, but how his job fits into his aviation community.
You can find info on the EAWS here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlisted_Aviation_Warfare_Specialist_...
The part that confused me with the question is the part about striking for the pin. Your Sailor is in A-PACT and he will be able to strike for a rating after he has been in for two years. The EAWS is earned based on passing various skills tests and then a written exam and an oral board. He must obtain the EAWS before he can advance to E-4, which is still down the road for him.
What am I missing? Where did My'sMom state that her Sailor is A-PACT?
Still don't see it.
I know where to look because I give members info on their loved one's rating or field.
Your best source of info will be your Sailor.
