You're correct... I'm not sure why I thought that, as my original FB name wasn't even my real name (before I switched it). Sorry about that.

I guess my concern lies in two specific areas: 1. Being transparent and collaborative is great, but there is a time and a place for such transparency. I'm pretty sure the Navy and NSA isn't going to like it very much if I sat my wife down today and was transparent about what it is that I do. An unre...

I'm wondering at what point we should just stop doing anti-terrorism computer-based training if we're just going to lay it out there on Facebook anyway. Purporting that people are going to be "out of touch" if they don't whole-heartedly participate in "the next new thing" (and it IS just the "next"....

Can you have the detailer pencil me in for 8-10 years from now (when I might see O-4, not how long I expect the debate/position requisition to take)? :)

I postulate part of the reason the community accesses so many prior enlisted (and therefore has to rely on lat transfers) is partially due to the relative unknown nature of the work we do and the relative over-reliance on OCS to bring in new officers. I say "relative" in terms of the USNA and NROTC ...

Fixing the accessions piece is the long pole in the tent...copy all...so in the meantime we will continue to fill our billets with lateral transfers. I know that lateral transfers bring unique operational experience to the community, and is a very valuable program that we've leveraged to the fulles...

I love this conversation. It's always good to get manpower facts straight from the source. There's an abundance of skuttlebutt floating around out there of questionable quality. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm betting that the IW community sees much higher retention rates than its SWO/Nuke/whoever ...

We are now keeping NROTC and USNA training attrites to ensure there is some ROI. My original statement regarding the abundance of JO's some communities had and the fact that attrites were being discharged was mostly in terms of non-USNA and NROTC Sailors, due to the differing amount of money alread...

WRT URL... Understood wrt the URL vs RL thing. I probably should have figured there would be a lot of extra baggage associated with that. WRT FB... Visit the page and see if you get anything out of it, or better yet why not contribute to the discussion. Not mandatory, just more evidence that there ...

IW RL/URL Debate

We are looking into our presence at USNA. Right now we cannot fill our current LT and above billets, so growth is not something for which we are lobbying. At the same time, we can only access from the NPQ pool, so there is minimal ROI. One way we can mitigate this is by transferring IW to the URL s...
