Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

You mean by calling a cyber job sitting in Fort Meade (or similar) "operational?" That's one of my favorite examples. I get we're trying to operationalize cyber, but the problem is most people who've specialized in cyber don't really understand traditional military operations to the exten...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

indeed, lots of folks turn down jobs, lots of folks volunteer the 'don't pick me' when the MS options aren't lining up for what/where they want. as for a CO decision to cycle folks through for MS credit - well, that's kind of the problem. the numbers aren't supposed to add up. i wonder if that type...

Yes, actually. I suspect the number of milestone and IWC selects keeps going up because people keep turning down these jobs.

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

But by the same token, those who refuse MS because they don't want to go to sea also end up self-selecting to go home once they reach hired tenure. Sure. And for some brand new CDRs, or event CAPTs, that is OK. They incur the risk, but...there is still an impact to filling at sea billets. What othe...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

Can completely understand why CO's do that though - with only 83 milestone billets out there and with close to 65-70 officers getting screened for milestone every year, the numbers just don't add up. Since most MS tours are 2 yrs., that means you notionally are going to have 41.5 MS openings per ye...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

"Game the system to get MS credit" How so? I thought the MS AQD was clearly tied to specific billets. You either fill one or you don't. Although, I guess I could see some tomfoolery going on with people getting rotated into a MS billet for the required 12 month minimum time period and the...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

There may be such a thing as TOO early, though. I found myself in a really weird situation where I essentially received O-4 MS credit for a job I did mostly as an O-3 (and O-4 select). I promoted on 1 Sept and left the command on 17 Oct MS complete. In that case, my only O-4 MS FITREP was a transfe...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

I think the biggest barricade to BZ picks (for those qualified) is the FITREP system itself. Way too often we simply stack the Officers in line, based on when they are in zone, and hope for the best. Again, totally within the realm of the reporting senior, along with the right verbiage and scores t...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

I tend to agree... one (or even two) data points a trend does not make. My main gripe with the system is it still is too inflexible to pull up talent early in any meaningful way. Even if we got through the board-isms that make it hard, there's still the statutory limits (not that I'd expect any com...

Re: FY-19 NAVY ACTIVE-DUTY COMMANDER LINE SELECTIONS

Understanding the policy provided by law, when a third of your selects are AZ, there is a problem somewhere. Is the quality of our officers declining at such a rate that we have to rely on who we rejected last year to perform 33% of our community business going forward? Or is it simply an organizat...
