Every IW I've ever spoken with who served on a small boy basically said the day you check on board you might as well be considered a SWO. They see you as another JO who can stand watches. Now, I can't comment to the fact that that is the vision the upper levels of command has for IWO's afloat, but i...

I heard this was coming a year or two ago. The Sailors working at some of hte other alphabet agencies had a version, and it would only be a matter of time before the NSA got one. I wonder if this is a mandatory thing... I suppose either way it won't matter since myself and 99.9% of the people I tend...

Wow... I didn't realize not finishing the PQS on time could lead to this kind of action. A lot of the Ensigns and jg's who have spent 60% or more of their first 1-2 years at the command deployed and at least 3-4 months training to be deployed are going to find this interesting.

I was selected a little over a year ago with no calculus and 1 semester of calc-based physics from my first stint in college (prior to enlisting) in 2000-ish. Now, my time as a CT may have "made up" for not having the calc or physics, but I've seen others selected since then who also didn't have the...

I spoke with a recent grad who thought it was very valuable as someone who was a direct accession and didn't have much experience with the technology part. I'd probably ask what the LDO's background was. As far as billet concerns... I'm one of those nasty prior enlisted CT's (Korling) who had 7 year...

http://www.usnavyocs.com/portal/index.php Go there, read lots, search the forums, and ask questions about anything you can't find. Even though it's primarily for OCS candidates much of the gouge on the site is applicable. My name on there is CTI1Hawaii ... let me know if you have issues or concerns...

However (and while this might not apply to you, I'll add it here for SA), if you were DLI trained in a language you are always eligible for FLPP, regardless of whether you are using it in your current billet or if the language is dominant in force. I was a prior Korean linguist and am eligible for F...

I only say a 2nd DIRSUP tour because at a place like NIOC Yoko the only difference between PCS afloat and DIRSUP is when your ship is in port you're sitting in an office building rather than on the ship. You're on board every time it gets underway and still have the opportunity to earn your warfare ...

Each have a DIRSUP mission, but it won't expose you to the national intelligence side that the big NSA sites will, and you won't be able to get the real watchfloor experience. Overall, you get an opportunity to learn more things and get a more complete idea of the opportunities for IW officers as a ...
