I'm at NIOC Hawaii right now (well, when I'm not deployed). NIOCH has both positive and negatives associated with it, just like any command. If you're looking to learn about the FIOC system, NIOCH's FIOC has arguably become the model in the Navy for what a FIOC should be. On the other hand many will...

By that logic I guess AMDO's are more of a warfare community than IW's now.

I wouldn't doubt it at all, especially if it's anything like the Navy Reserve DCO/DIRCOM program: there were ZERO openings for IW in FY09. Fortunately, the OCS openings have nothing to do with DCO/DIRCOM program. The IWOCM may chime in, but I'll tell you here what I told you there... if you're inte...

I thought the CNO's message said - effective immediately. How does the CMC counter that? I'm assuming it falls under the same umbrella of things that are authorized for wear, but are still at the discretion of the chain of command. I know plenty of other uniform items that would fall under that cat...

Our CMC here in Hawaii put out an email just today letting the workforce know that the badge is not going to be authorized just yet. I think that's a good idea. I get mad when USAA put's my rank and service on mail they send to my house, so I'm not sure I'm going to be happy to have to walk around w...

Successfully navigating a SWO board does not make you an expert shipdriver, but it does show that you have the baseline skills needed to contribute meaningfully to fighting that ship if necessary. There is a place for specialization, don't get me wrong. However, over-specialization and a lack of wi...

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...
