Civilian USN Commissioning Instruction?

Hey everyone, I am very familiar with OPNAV 1420.1a concerning in-service accession opportunities, however, I've been unsuccessfully trying to find the specific OPNAV or documentation used by recruiters to process civilian applications. I'm a mod over at usnavyocs.com and had some questions that I'v...

I really think one of the best aspects of our community is the variety of assignments available as you trod through a career. You really can do CNO, DIRSUP, PCS afloat, etc, etc, etc, etc... it's unending. You don't like your job? Okay, wait a bit and chances are you can find something you will like...

I have no problem doing it... I do have a problem shitting it out in a month when we were supposed to have until December 2009 (which was actually less than 18 months from when we signed our qual assignment letter as it was). Done with this thread though... if the community response is to place all ...

Since the new PQS came out and became an issue there have been very few 1610 qualified DSOs. Both of my U/I trips were under 1640 DSOs (albeit fully qualified DSOs), so sign offs would have been difficult. Also complicating the issue is command policy is the only people eligible to sign off stuff ar...

There are efforts on at least the highside to have a living wiki, nearly complete. But what are the Command Training Officers doing? Why aren't they getting together from across the enterprise to unify the training plan? Isn't this their job? The wiki page has become a great resource for the JO's a...

Command implementation started out relatively well (weekly PQS classes that JOs attended being a bit positive)... ended up taking a steep nosedive when 5 or 6 DSOs were told they had 1-2 months to complete the entire PQS in order to be eligible to deploy. Not finishing was not an option. Post deploy...

On a less controversial side note, didn't NPC ask for an NPS thesis analysis regarding IWO's, lat transfers, mustangs, and retention? Has that analysis been completed? Can you post (or post a link)? That would be an interesting read... lots of conjectures and "statements of fact" floating around, b...

You're correct... I'm not sure why I thought that, as my original FB name wasn't even my real name (before I switched it). Sorry about that.

I guess my concern lies in two specific areas: 1. Being transparent and collaborative is great, but there is a time and a place for such transparency. I'm pretty sure the Navy and NSA isn't going to like it very much if I sat my wife down today and was transparent about what it is that I do. An unre...

I'm wondering at what point we should just stop doing anti-terrorism computer-based training if we're just going to lay it out there on Facebook anyway. Purporting that people are going to be "out of touch" if they don't whole-heartedly participate in "the next new thing" (and it IS just the "next"....
