Just throwing out a question? I am already working on my eval, and I thought I had a great closing bullet but I was told by one of my Chiefs that it was a promotable bullet. Any suggestions on a great EP bullet?

Hope everyone is enjoying their last free weekend

Nothing as of this morning on the release figured by this time they would have established a timeline for us FTS/Reserve folks.... geez.. I was calm and cool and collected now Im impatient and anxious.  They have to know that this is sit and wait is not "mentally" good for anyone the pressure alone is insane.. knowing they know who are the new selects and holding on to them for whatever the reason may be is nuts... ok ok vent over ... back to trying to clear my mind.. I hate "unknowns"  .... yeah all the unknowns of Phase 2 (if blessed to be selected) are gonna drive me nuts hahahha

I can't imagine how hard that it must be having to work a regular job and do the NAVY job as well. I wouldn't want to have to deal with that but on the plus side you have a job were you can take your mind off of the results as hard as it may be to do so. When AD Navy goes to work it seems like we are reminded of the results all the time cause someone is always bringing it up. Hope that the results come out soon for y'all. I know y'all have been waiting for way to long as it is.

Actually you bring up a great point. I would say both sides have positives and negatives about them ....either way its going to be a interesting week, lets see how it goes!

PM me your email address.

 

I have award doc that we have been passing around for a few years that has all kinds of eval bullet points and award inputs. 

 

I would be happy to share it with you, that is what it was created for!

Here is one i used for one of my FCPO's who picked up Chief last year. PM me your closing bullet.

Petty Officer Sailor is a Chief without the Anchor! Make it official! Put this Sailor in khaki's and send him/her to sea as a LCPO immediately!

Let me do my best to explain. A lot of us where I work (three letter groups), spend our days running around like crazy because we work for the government. Then, we roll into drill weekend doing LITERALLY the same thing because for some reason, no one can figure out functional management or mission planning.

I have several things I have to do for work which may take me away from the season, while still facing the pressure of participating in the season as much as possible. If I can get ADT orders to put me on active duty for six weeks. This part is possible, but I need to give my work advance notice... we are creeping further and further away from "advance notice." Along with this, active duty has the advantage of finding out and then rolling right into training. Reservists have a different beast to navigate.

And with 'taking your mind off things'-- its not always possible. A lot of us still end up doing navy stuff during the week because there isn't enough time on a drill weekend to meet all of the requirements. There is a disconnect between AD and Reservists; we are accountable for everything active duty has to do (workcenter quals, annual training, warfare quals, collaterals, etc.,) we just have a much shorter time to do it.

I love the reserves because it was a better temporary solution for my work/life balance. But d*** if I don't spend a large portion of time pitching in for the sake of the command.

Very well explained ! Being FTS I've seen and heard it all ... the Reserve force is like double the active duty work. I've had to put reservists on ships to fill gap billets and they shine like no other because they are used to balancing it out more then us having to just worry about one job.. I have much respect for my reservists ..

Thanks! OS1 is right-- we usually never get thanked. If fact, we usually get accused of stealing all their food from the fridge and other stuff like that. Why they always gotta focus on the negative? lol
