I came from Hawaii as last station to Pentagon DC.  I would kill to get back there. I got orders to Everett but, hopefully they get canceled after results. If not then back to sea to reinforce the package.

I'm ready to leave Hawaii.  I was in San Diego, then here.  Trying to get back to the East Coast now.  I have orders to Dam Neck, but like you said, I hope they get cancelled! lol

So, my bet is that tomorrow is the day for sure. I've been on that "after captain results" thing, so hopefully my predictions come true! :)

Has anyone heard any rumor on whether NSW is getting rid of CWOs like they did LDOs? Specifically SEALs?

I'd venture a guess that you're the only one within that community on here.  Have there been rumblings about it in the recent past?

Haven't heard anything. Are you in the east or west coast?

 

i don't see why your community would. I totally understand the logic behind LDOs being phased out.

Has anyone on here ever completed those Homeland Security(I-V) Certifications before? Just trying to take courses that can help build my package.

Hoping for tomorrow, but it might be ending up a Tuesday release.

I did levels I and V, but I don't know how much they would help.

I did all five of them. I don't know how much they would really help except to say that you are trying to further educate yourself. Of course I've never sat the board so I am not 100% sure, just assuming.

the site which shall not be named is blowing up... WO Rivera apparently said something that makes some guy believe that results will be out today, but the context of what he read leaves me uncertain that LDO/CWO results are what she was talking about...

I'll be honest, I don't think that was uncertain.  She clearly meant the accession message would be released.  Maybe the CWO OCM is throwing hopefuls a bone?

Since no one has jumped on here with the message release date/time, that means one of two things. 

1) Those Chiefs have transferred or are no longer active in this forum. 

2) The release isn't imminent.

The last two years, the results were released around 11CST.  Only time will tell...

I mean, previously around Feb 23, Chiefs posted that on Feb 25 at 1100 hours, results will be released at this time. 

I found out about my S because of this forum.

How were they?  I am interested if you could talk a but more about them.  Even if I get picked up, it is something that I want to do.

Speaking for Levels I and V, they weren't really that hard to get.  The study guides are about 70 pages long.

Yeah.  I was done with Level I in about 20 minutes and Level V took about 40-45.
