  1. Yesterday
  2. I'm beginning to see the career summary like a resume, highlighting what you deem important, i.e. items listed in the convening order (formerly board precept). I've always been told certs are good to submit because a whole page that says Master Training Specialist is easier for old, tired MCPO eyes to see than "qualified MTS" in an eval. As for a JSOQ from 2012, probably not worth sending in.
  3. I am still undecided about a career summary. They still have to go verify everything you put on it. What I would love to hear someone put some clarification on is things in block 44 like PPME/SEJPME cert. I hear equally “if it’s in your record, don’t send it” or “send it so it doesn’t get overlooked”. He mentioned all documents of winning SOQ or JSOQ. Even though it’s on an eval, should I send my cookie cutter LOC that I got for winning JSOQ from 2012? Wish I could actually sit down with someone who has sat a recent board to go through my I love me book and recommend things to send in
  4. He's also the first person I've heard say to send a career summary page. I haven't the first 4 times, but I'm thinking about putting one together for this board. I've been in two communities but 4 different aircraft platforms and an instructor tour. I've essentially hit "reset" every 3 years with qualifications and having to work my way from the bottom to be competitive with my peer group.
  5. Last week
  6. So there is a social media site that has a page by the name of “navy reserve careercompass” that has a video today by CMDCM Heisler that is about 12-13 mins long, that gives some good advice and info in regards to presenting your package to the selection board. Also gives what insight he can on the board process as he was the SEA for last years FTS and SELRES E7 selection board. Could be worth a look for those interested.
  7. The Navy plans sweeping changes to bridges and control systems on its ships to increase crew efficiency and help them avoid collisions like those that killed 17 sailors on the USS Fitzgerald and USS John S. McCain. Bridges are being revamped in response to these two deadly accidents that occurred in busy western Pacific waters two months apart in 2017 — accidents that Navy investigations later deemed avoidable. https://www.stripes.com/news/in-response-to-back-to-back-deadly-collisions-navy-rethinks-ship-bridges-to-help-prevent-future-accidents-1.573781

  10. Yeah I have heard that there changes. The master Chief I had talked to us recently retired. I had heard of course about after the two personnel that slate your record, you go to the tank, and the tank does a third look at your record. If after the two who grade your record and the tank grade it and the scores are to far apart in pints determined by the president, it will get regraded a fourth time. One piece of information he told me was when they are looking at your record. It’s not like that they are looking at all your evaluation and awards in front of them. He said that they are looking at purged information from your record, with exception to your letter to the board that is the only time they will read line for line everything that you send. he also said that if it comes closes between some candidates and they have to get information pay five years to compete. They only take positive information past last five years not negative. Again these are just some details he sent. He emphasized to me that it’s My package and my letter to the board, when send information send what make you comfortable. If your comfortable sending nothing then send nothing but if it makes you comfortable sending 10+ pages then send it. Again a lot was things I have heard before but some was good ensight.
  11. Visiting the USS Gerald R. Ford two years ago, U.S. President Donald Trump extolled the importance of an enlarged naval force featuring a dozen aircraft carriers—including the Ford, the most expensive ship ever built. Having 12 of these behemoths—sometimes accompanied by a half-dozen other ships—would send an international signal of U.S. resolve and restore the fleet to its post-Cold War size during the 1990s. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-21/navy-bid-to-retire-truman-stirs-debate-over-aircraft-carriers
  12. The process is was changed last year, so older Senior Enlisted May have bad gouge...notice I said MAY. I won “SOY” equivalent at a COCOM last year and was not selected. The Chief Mess racked it up to the the COCOM Board happening after LTBs we’re due. I was down, but kept pressing and left with #1 EP. And was told, “just pass the exam.” I've transferred to a new command, and have already sat down with a few in rate Senior/Master Chiefs along with other CMCs who sat the AC and FTS board last year. Thise that have seen just my last 5 evals had questions, but those that reviewed my PSR were like “WTX!” There was a period in my career as a junior PO1 where my LCPO hurt my pride, and I got a bad attitude about it. That shows on two evals, the second debriefing (2012) was more of an intervention with all seven Chiefs. Everything has been solid since. Reason I say this is now they will go all the way back if they have to, everything is accessible. The big difference is instead of two reviewers heading your package and the score determines whether or not you go to the “tank, now EVERYONE goes to the tank and you’re voted on based off of what one reviewer can find in your record to brief. If you can make it to the crunch, that is when your SME will go through your record with a fine tooth comb and rebrief your record. I was told last year there were people with Silver Stars not being selected.
  13. Facing threats from ever-faster missiles and increasingly complicated air threats from China and Russia, the Navy is moving toward a major upgrade to its stalwart Arleigh Burke destroyer fleet. The service is planning to buy a scaled version of Raytheon’s Spy-6 Air and Missile Defense Radar to replace the Spy-1D arrays on the Flight IIA destroyers, Defense News has learned, an upgrade that will give the Flight IIA Burkes an enormous upgrade in radar sensitivity and sophistication. The Navy is concerned about the proliferation of anti-ship cruise missiles with sophisticated evasive maneuvers and ever-increasing speeds, investments that China and Russia make no secret about pursuing. https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2019/03/21/with-an-eye-to-china-and-russia-the-us-navy-plans-a-lethal-upgrade-to-its-destroyers/

As outlined in references (a) through (c), individuals who entered into a contract for enlistment or were selected for entrance into an officer commissioning program, before 12 April 2019, and either were medically qualified for military service or selected for entrance into an officer commissioning program in their preferred gender in accordance with reference (d) or, as a Service Member, received a diagnosis of gender dysphoria from, or had such diagnosis confirmed by, a military medical provider (MMP) before 12 April 2019, are exempt from reference (a) and are subject to reference (d) and may continue to receive all necessary medical treatment to protect the health of the individual, obtain a gender marker change in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) and serve in their preferred gender in line with references (e) through (l). b. As outlined in references (a) through (c), Service Members who received a diagnosis of gender dysphoria and are currently undergoing gender transition before the effective date of reference (a), 12 April 2019, are also considered exempt. Those Service Members who are exempt may continue to receive all medically necessary treatment, obtain a gender marker change in DEERS and serve in their preferred gender in line with references (e) through (l). 3. Policy Description a. A description of the new policy for military service by transgender persons and persons with gender dysphoria, referred to as the 2018 Policy, follows below. A comparison is made with the 2016 Policy to highlight the changes and an explanation of the exemption policy is provided. The 2018 Policy will supersede the 2016 Policy on 12 April 2019. b. Accession of individuals diagnosed with gender dysphoria. (1) 2016 Policy. An individual with a history of gender dysphoria who completed gender transition could enter the Navy in their preferred gender, provided they could demonstrate 18 months of stability as confirmed by a licensed medical provider. (2) 2018 Policy. An individual with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria may enter the Navy, provided they can demonstrate 36 consecutive months of stability in their biological sex immediately preceding their application as certified by a licensed mental health provider, a licensed medical provider confirms they have not transitioned to their preferred gender and transition is not necessary to protect their health, and they are willing and able to adhere to all standards associated with their biological sex. No otherwise qualified individual shall be denied accession solely on the basis of gender identity. c. Retention of Service Members diagnosed with gender dysphoria. (1) 2016 Policy. Service Members who were diagnosed with gender dysphoria after entering military service could receive medical treatment, complete gender transition with gender marker change in DEERS and serve in their preferred gender as long as all deployability standards were met. (2) 2018 Policy. Service Members who are diagnosed with gender dysphoria on or after the effective date of reference (a), 12 April 2019, may be retained without waiver if a military medical provider has determined that gender transition is not medically necessary to protect the health of the individual, and they are willing and able to adhere to all standards associated with their biological sex and meet all deployability standards. No otherwise qualified Service Member shall be involuntarily separated, discharged or denied reenlistment or continuation of service solely on the basis of gender identity. d. Exceptions to Policy (ETP) (1) Currently serving Service Members who are deployed or otherwise unable to access an approved MMP to receive a diagnosis of gender dysphoria before 12 April 2019, may submit a request to be considered exempt beyond the effective date of reference (a). This request must be routed to the commanding officer (CO) by the Service Member no later than 12 April 2019 and must contain a presumptive diagnosis from a provider (e.g., independent duty corpsman or civilian provider). The request must be forwarded with an endorsement from the CO of the Service Member verifying the inability of the member to access an approved MMP by the effective date of reference (a). The ETP request shall be submitted through the first flag or general officer in the chain of command to be adjudicated by Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education) (DCNO(N1)). (2) All other ETP requests shall be submitted through the first flag or general officer in the chain of command, via DCNO(N1), to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Manpower and Reserve Affairs) for adjudication. 4. Additional Guidance a. All Service Members are expected to continue to treat each other with dignity and respect. There is zero tolerance for harassment, hazing or bullying of any Service Member in any form. b. Civilian Attire. Service Members may live socially in their preferred gender while off-duty. There is no policy that prohibits the ability of a Service Member to express themselves off-duty in their preferred gender. Appropriate civilian attire, as outlined in the uniform regulations, will not be determined based on gender. Regional commanders and the senior officers present may suspend or restrict the privilege of wearing preferred gender civilian attire to meet local conditions and host-nation agreements with foreign countries. c. Facilities. Service Members will use gender-specific berthing, head and shower facilities according to the gender reflected in Navy personnel administrative systems/DEERS. d. Security Clearances. Any change in the status of a Service Member (e.g., marriage, divorce, addition of dependents) is reportable to the command security manager in order to maintain a national security clearance. This includes changes to name and gender of a Service Member. A Standard Form 86 Certification (SF 86C) allows reporting of changes in previously reported information on the Questionnaire for National Security Positions (SF 86). 5. Reserve Component (RC).

  17. MANILA, Philippines — The U.S. Navy won't alter its so-called "freedom of navigation" sail-bys in the disputed South China Sea and has pressed ahead with such operations despite a dangerous maneuver by a Chinese navy ship against an American destroyer, a senior U.S. Navy commander said Monday. Vice Adm. Phillip Sawyer, commander of the U.S. 7th Fleet, told reporters in Manila that Washington protested that "unprofessional behavior" by the Chinese ship, which maneuvered very close to the USS Decatur as the latter sailed closely by a Chinese-occupied island in the Spratlys in September. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/us-navy-won-t-alter-sail-bys-at-sea-despite-unprofessional-maneuver-by-chinese-ship-1.573141

  22. This really burns me up! These members did not have to go through this! In 2016, a Virginia Beach sailor was evicted — some would say wrongly — from her apartment. Complaints were made. A federal investigation was launched. She wasn't alone. The property manager behind at least 10 apartment complexes in Virginia acknowledged this week they improperly secured default judgement against 127 servicemembers over the span of 10½ years. Most of them were evicted. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_d3b10a3e-46a1-11e9-8c65-d335f5f45d6f.html

  25. The Navy Advancement Center (NAC) has a little more than 80% of the Cycle 104 E7 answer sheets scanned to date. We are waiting on the remaining answer sheets before running processes in the Navy Enlisted Advancement System that will generate profile sheets and Chief Petty Officer Selection Board eligibility status for Reserve component Sailors. This page will let you know when we are ready to publish results. Check with your ESO to determine if all of your command's answer sheets have been returned. Typically, NAC publishes the Reserve E7 SBE profile sheets in early April.
