I agree with marrying up theses with a community need. It makes a lot of sense to me and would really have saved me a lot of time. It took me a long time to decide on my thesis because I had to guess about what i felt was most important to the community regarding my course of study. I hope I have do...

In my new attempts to curtail the ridiculous lengths of my post, i did not give background on what i have observed. I reported to my first duty station very early in 2005. Every JO who reported after me did an IA - voluntarily or otherwise - except for 3. My command did not factor direct support or ...

Your chances of experiencing an IA in the first 4 years are about 90 percent. I think you should expect to do 2 IAs/GSAs within your first 8 years. Its not a Navy/leadership/service perspective, it is the reality of today's military involvement. There is no branch of the military which is spared. Yo...

i, too, am a prior, who appreciates the problem confronted by the community. as i wrote last year when answering the question related to how the community could improve in retaining officers at the 20 year mark, i don't see how it will be fixed. too many priors do create a mid-level officer hemorrha...

concept, were i you , i would carefully listen to what navy05 has to say. there is much that you can do with out going active. when i was on my IA, there were several reserve officers doing their part, and they were getting the same experience I was and in most cases contributing the same. one thing...

i applaud the idea, as well, and feel it is way over due. However, there are a few reservations I have. First, i personally am not about to drop anything on the ffc.mil domain. i don't have a CAC reader at home, so that means I would have to be at work to participate. Also, if the ffc site is anythi...

i read the JOE, and sort of felt like it wasn't saying much beyond the 'future is cloudy'. It is probably worth reading in order to understand the perspective of Joint Forces Command. However, when I consider to the amount of effort that goes into production and release of these type of documents an...

i can speak of San Antonio a bit. I liked it because when I arrived, I was 1 of 3 Ensigns at the command. So, I was lucky enough to be able to deploy whenever I wanted (and sometimes when i didn't). I don 't about the rest of the commands, but it seemed like they all had many more Ensigns than did w...

I'm kind of curious, as well. I am supposed to be taking a course in preparation for PCS afloat next July. I'm not sure of the title, and it probably doesn't matter as they will probably change it twice before then, anyway.
