This is a good discussion (missed it when it was new as I was doing the DSO thing... ironically enough). As a JO we we've been told that no matter how much time you have underway as a subsurface DSO the detailer is going to push PCS afloat because we're on "shore duty." This is "shore duty" despite ...

Hopefully I'm not overstepping my bounds, but I hardly would call the budget issues and reaction to the economy right now a highlight of the administration (and I'll keep the rest of my thoughts there... no need to turn this into a political debate).

Yea, I was operating under the same policy, however, I was hoping for something in black and white to show recruiters who were still operating under the idea that calc and physics is 100% required to apply.

Thanks for the help. I'll look up that information.

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...
