      There is still an issue where people registering do not receive the validation email once they sign up on this forum. If you do not receive and respond to the validation email, it will not allow you to become a member. Please check your spam boxes or ask your IT for assistance and whitelist NavyAdvancement.com if you are able to do so.  This is the message I see: "Member has not yet responded to registration validation email."

    Oooo I love this topic. In one breathe, we are preaching that time in service isn't a determinant in being a good sailor. The next is bashing <12 year Chiefs. Highly ironic if you ask me. If you think you having nothing to learn from a person because they have less time in than you, then you are largely mistaken. This is regardless of rank. By assuming you know better than a board of MCPOs, the senior officers chairing the board, the flag that signs off on the selections, the mess that ranked and initiated them, and even the CO who signed their eval to get them there in the first place is pure arrogance. Leadership is the biggest factor for selection, if you don't have it, it doesn't matter how many MOVSMs or JPMEs you have. Most, if not all, Chiefs credit their anchors to their troops and by implying they haven't earned them, degrades every sailor who helped them get there. I was initiated with a 6 1/2 year chief and 19 year chief, both are stellar leaders who earn their anchors everyday.

    Good luck to everyone tomorrow. All this waiting will soon be over. Remember no matter what the outcome tomorrow, remember at the end of the day regardless of if you are a first class, chief, or officer, our sailors still look up to us and it is our job to take care of them. Doing that is what got us to this point and continuing to do that will push us farther in our career.

    My wife.... without skipping a beat. She is the only person throughout my 17 1/2 years that's has pushed me harder than I have pushed myself. Every time I have been up and fell, she kept whispering in my ear that it is going to be ok. She is a strong and praying woman and I know that she prays over me. Not just to finally be told "Yes", but to be thankful for the Blessings that we do have. I remember when I was on the brink of PTS in 2010, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where to begin if I had to go home and support a wife plus two children. She is the one that said that it didn't matter and God will provided for us and already had a plan. Here it is some years later with more setbacks....for lack of better terms, of continually being passed over; she's still the same rock. If it weren't for her, I would have given up before the fight even started. Sorry about the long post. I just thought that I would say a word or two, but the more I thought about how good she has been to and for me, the more my fingers kept moving. I hope everyone has a great day. Prayerfully, I hope to see a lot of " I made it" post Thursday night when I log on and I will get chance to post the same on Friday morning....I'm in Japan. Peace

    To change the subject a little I would like to talk about humility. Recently I purchased my gold chevron's with pride. A shipmate who saw me with them said they never want to go "gold" and that by 12 years that you should be a chief. I think it is important to remember this year whether we are selected or not that everyone has a career that is different. If you make it your first time up with less than 12 years I'm happy for you, however it does not make me a bad sailor because I haven't made it. No two careers are alike, please show others respect and dignity as results come out. Others have fought for years for this chance. To the ones that are lucky that never have to know what it's like to be not selected Im happy for you, please stay humble. Take time to celebrate with fellow selects and take time to recognize the disappointment others might be having. It's important to change the culture of thinking that if you're not selected that you're a bad sailor or that you "suck". There's always a need to improve whether are you selected or not. Stay humble stay hungry and most importantly continue doing what you're doing, not to make chief but because you have pride in your work and you want to see other sailors succeeding. Lastly, I take pride in my gold chevron's . I am seasoned and I've been through a lot. My career is unlike any others but I think it's experience that helps build a leader. I love the dynamic and diverse group of people that make up the Navy, and that will one day make up the Chiefs' mess.

    I have official confirmation from my Chief that he's sick and tired of me pestering him every five minutes for the last month about the results.

    Hello Shipmates. It is never too early to start prepping for next year’s board. The common thing I see here is you guys list what YOU have done. MOVSM, PPME, JPME, whatever……At this pay grade, it is not about what you can do. Being a leader is about what you can make your Sailors do. Let’s say 3 of your Sailors earned their MOVSM, that would look a lot better than YOU getting yours, right? When I read posts, it is mostly about me, me, me. That is not going to work. The focus should be on how do I set my Junior Sailors up for success and how I can make a positive impact on the command. Just my .02 cents.

    Good timing! We are assembling the snoopy team and our forum SEAL team members for a few recon missions. All intel will be gathered and disseminated after @HawkISback gives it a reality check. Does the CNP have a smile, frown or smirk? Away the Snoopy team away!!!

    I think I know what papasmurf is trying to say. It gets very frustrating to us First Classes that have been a First for a long time and we are getting close to retirement. I am tired of seeing my airman pick up Chief, Senior Chief, LDO, or Warrant. I have been an LPO consistently over my last three tours. I have my B.S. degree, PPME, all kinds of awards, all kinds of quals. All my people that worked for me, I have done my job pushing them on the quals, education, and etc... And I will continue to train my junior personnel to go further in their careers than I have in mine. Training my people and watching them grow is what makes it all worth it. But it is really, really frustrating when you get a Chief that you seem to giving more training to than receiving training from and your Senior and Master Chief come to you for answers or to get things done and not the Chief. I am sure it is made known in the mess and I don't see it happening. But when you have more "checks in the box" and more leadership listed in your evals than the person that made it you have to ask. I have been told over and over. I don't know. the same thing with why I haven't picked up. Every Master Chief and Senior Chief that has looked at my stuff all have said the same thing that they have no idea why I haven't picked up. When I have talked to those that were board members they have stated that they remember seeing my evals on final selections. But do not know why I didn't get selected. When asked what I need to work on to make me more competitive I have gotten the reply keep doing what you have been doing. It is not a matter of if just a matter of when you get picked up.

    That's not a shipmate, that's a douche. Sadly the world is full of toxic people who try to build themselves up by tearing you down. I'm an 18-year first who's been up for Chief since 2005. And you know what? I'm awesome! I'll be awesome if I make Chief, and I'll be awesome if I don't. It sounds like you've done a great job at being awesome yourself.

    It has gotten bitter on here pretty fast. I'm a prior SCPO turned LDO with 15 years in. Yes it can be frustrating to watch people in open rates leap frog you because yours is locked up. I experienced that as an E-4 and people in open rates were putting on E-5 with less time in then me. That being said if people in your rate are advancing faster than you it's your fault. That might sound mean, but it's true. They are doing something you aren't. If you are happy in your current paygrade there is no shame in it. I've known people that didn't want to make CPO because they wanted to stay with the gear. The Navy likes to force people into leadership positions whether or not they want to be leaders. Not everyone is a leader and it causes problems when people who have no desire to be leaders have it forced on them. Making rank, especially CPO, is about getting good evals and checking boxes. Theoretically you get a good eval by being a good leader and doing your job as LPO, sometimes it's by kissing butt. It's the real world your supervisors have to like you more than your competition for you to get a better eval it's the way it is. If you have a good supervisor that means it's by you doing better work, but you know who you work for and what you have to do to get the eval. If your pride prevents you from doing what you have to do to get a good eval that is a decision you are making. It might be the right one because you are sticking up for your Sailors, but it might hurt your career. That's a judgement call you have to make. I never understood the aversion to checking boxes. The Navy tells you what boxes to check you only have to check them. Checking boxes doesn't mean you aren't doing the other stuff. Now if you only check the boxes and kiss butt that's where there is an issue. Do people get advanced who only did those two things? Of course. But we all know this. Making your Chief or department head happy is not kissing butt by the way, it's doing your job. Working for people isn't always easy, but we get paid to do what our supervisors tell us to do. If you have a conflictual relationship with your supervisor your going to have problems come eval time. If you are getting people advanced and awards (that they deserve), your divisions do well on inspections and in operations, and you do everything you need to to advance your career (check the boxes) you will advance. If you aren't advancing it's because you aren't doing something and someone else is, at least on paper. It's easy to look at someone and say they don't deserve the rank they wear, but it's a lot harder to say they made it because to a board they look more qualified than me. So what am I going to do to fix the situation? There is always something more you can do to make yourself look better to the board. Ok jumping off the soap box.

    I know you all are chomping at the bit for results, trust me so are all the Chiefs. No words of wisdom of why or for what reason the delay may be occurring, as those would be to far and wide to cover here. Stay the course and remember that you all may want the results so you can move on, some want them just so they can get the next exam cycle material to start their preps early for the exam to sit here and wait next year. We go through the same thing every year on some point or another, "the results are never on time, or early enough". Then we turn around and the season is too long or "when will it be over?" seems to start being voiced. Over the years we have all heard the nightmare stories of Sailors being notified that they were Selected and it be false and the heartache that brings afterwards. I rather the results be delayed and get it right, than to hear of one of these stories that a Sailor had to go through false notification.

    I remember the fy14 result hysteria started like this and went on to March 5. Tomorrow is a possibility, but don't hold your breath. Since the FTS/SELRES E8/9 selection board starts on March 6, I expect results to be out by then so that the records of selectees are shoved aside. I understand selectees have ten days from release of results to decline commission, but it would be make sense to release results before the board convenes. What I can say with 100% certainty is that the results will be out by March 15th.

    Funny story... I was talking to my dad earlier and completely forgot that his neighbors are the CNPs parents. Well, CNPs brother is there taking care of his mother. I told my dad to tell him to call his brother and release that message already for you folks!
