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...

yeah - i saw this earlier today and feel the same way. its a little close to home for me, as i used to be an enlisted linguist. i have also heard that there is a new book floating around that pretty much serves the same purpose as this idiot's interview. apparently, it has statements from 3 people 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.

the ability to take leave (whether permissive TAD/TDY or earned) is also always subject to requirements and available personnel. Although it is certainly nice to have the opportunity to request it, it doesn't always mean it is going to happen. Based on the requirements I have experienced and the ava...

I'm pretty happy with it considering I missed the birth of my youngest child (and all the drama that followed) while on a subsurface deployment. This specific policy isn't yet perfect or equitable, but it is a dramatic step forward which was impossible to consider just a few years ago.

I did a GTMO IA, and I think it all depends on the individual. If they worked in a PAO type role, they probably did indeed suffer dramatically far away from where they needed to be. If you are an IWO who wants to do something topical in terms of IW, the opportunity is there. If you don't push to do ...

I have to say, though, that for me the detailing process has been pretty good. i have been pretty persistent, but have always managed to get the information i needed. i have no complaints about the current situation, alth...

yeah - ft bragg; and i thought i was getting away from Army bases when I did my interservice transfer in 2004. still, i much prefer "visiting" an Army base for a few months (or weeks) as opposed to PCSing there. thanks for posting the link to the message articulating the benefits of GSA/IAMM tours. ...

i recently called (yesterday), and i can say that they are still turning over. i talked to both the arriving and departing JO detailer. i'm totally with you on the website stuff, though. it should be updated far more regularly. if that is the only output for information, it should be regularly (as i...
