I think it would be incredibly negligent of the Navy to try and line the release dates up with Active Duty. Reservists have day jobs and need more time to plan. I live way too far from a command who would be participating in the season. They are talking about getting me berthing for the whole six weeks. It would be super unlikely for me to attend the whole time anyway. I scheduled my AT for two weeks in August on the off chance that I make it. I think the quota was 6 out of 31 who were board eligible.

On a different note-- in the IW community, is it true that if you don't have your IW pin you most likely won't get picked up for Chief? I have IW/SW/AW, but I am wondering how true of a statement that is.

Its just speculation and either way no one gets pinned til sept.. so in all honesty it doesn't really matter when they come out...

You missed it that's the difference between active and FTS. FTS knows results about 3-4 weeks sooner so their initiation is 3-4 weeks longer hence the extra attention

I'm with you the fact that it's weds and we don't have a time line I'm guessing the results will be out July 13th for us.

Well since BOL is up and running today, odds are results won't be this week. So I plan on enjoying my 4th stress free.

So as I mentioned before, I pick the 12th of July for Command Notification and the 13th for public release. I don't think they would be that nice and release the dates right after a holiday weekend. I am thinking there might be some delay as the MCPO Board reconvened this week as well as our Active duty counterparts.

If you are at a command where you can get a third pin, you need to have it. Not just for IW community this applies to everyone, it is looked at as a detractor.

I'm going to wait to see if I make it before I break out the running shoes. I have duplicate degree in my record so I don't think I will pick up and it's my first time making board so no need to start with the additional running just yet :P.

I think it does matter. Reservists are already behind the curve in being able to fully participate in the season. The active navy, while they do not have a direct responsibility to reservist selectees, needs to do what they can to accommodate these sailors. Sailors who are able to fully participate and immerse themselves in training activities positively contributes to the mess. It makes no sense for them to hold out on the dates. The longer they hold out, the less participation will be seen.

Im sure they have thought about that, Reservists will have ample opportunity to participate in activities I get it.. but if they aren't releasing as they usually do Im sure its for a reason...
