  4. ARLINGTON, Va. — The Navy has a finite amount of money for retaining experienced enlisted sailors, so to ensure proper ship staffing, the service is increasing the number of meritorious promotions to petty officer first class. The Navy has monetary incentives to retain sailors in hard to fill billets. Staffing ships, though, require sailors with ratings that don’t qualify for reenlistment bonuses, Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. John Nowell said last week at the 2020 Surface Navy Association symposium. https://news.usni.org/2020/01/22/navy-increases-meritorious-advancement-quotas-for-petty-officer-first-class

All five crew members are currently in stable condition.” https://deepclips.com/clip/3812/all-five-u-s-navy-aircrew-safe-after-mh-60-sea-hawk-goes-down-in-philippine-sea/navy

  11. The Navy’s new Osprey, designed to replace the aging fleet of aircraft that ferry personnel and supplies between the shore and carriers at sea, has taken flight for the first time, Boeing Co. and Bell Textron Inc. announced this week. The CMV-22B Osprey is the Navy’s version of the tiltrotor aircraft used by the Marine Corps and Air Force.

  13. PENSACOLA, Fla. — In March, command leadership will receive advanced notification of chief petty officer selection board eligibility through the triad notification functionality in BUPERS OnLine (BOL). Starting with exam cycle 246 for active duty and Full-Time Support (FTS) Sailors, command notification will occur one day prior to the results being posted to profile sheets on the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS) Web. “This new notification process allows command leadership to take a more proactive role in their Sailor’s development,” said Naval Education and Training Command Force Master Chief Karim Cole. “Leadership must engage early and often with their Sailors to ensure their continued personal and professional growth.” Commands can now immediately assist Sailors in board preparation no matter the result. “In the past, I had to rely on each individual first class to download their profile sheet and tell me if they made board,” said Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center (NETPDC) Command Master Chief Gregory Prichard. “I can now say, ‘Okay, let’s work on your letter to the board’, or in the case they didn’t make it, ‘let’s look back and see what we need to do for the future.’” The change also helps those who might not have access to a dot-mil domain. “If you are a Reservist, deployed or on leave, you can’t see your profile sheet on NEAS Web,” said Prichard. “Now the command can reach out to you so you don’t have to wait.” Command triads will not receive the notification of E-7 selection board eligibility until mid-March for active duty and mid-April for the Reserve component. “The reason we don’t know the [specific] date is because we have to get in all the answer sheets and clear all the discrepancies as best we can before we process the cycle to determine selection board eligibility,” said Thomas Updike, Navy Advancement Center deputy director. “We do this so no one is disadvantaged.” E-7 Selection board eligibility is determined through two factors—the Reporting Senior Cumulative Average (RSCA) Performance Mark Average (PMA) which counts for 60% of the Final Multiple Score (FMS), and the exam score which makes up the other 40% of the FMS formula. “Once every Sailor’s FMS is calculated, we go down to the 60% mark in each rating and draw a line,” said Updike. “Everyone above the line makes board, and Sailors below the line will not have their record reviewed by the selection board.” Ultimately, 60% of all eligible first-class petty officers in each rating go to the selection board for consideration for advancement to chief petty officer. The eligibility list, however, can change as discrepancies are resolved. “If the very next day after we publish the eligibility list a late answer sheet comes in or if the record of a Sailor who is in a discrepancy status is updated,” said Updike, “the Advancement Center will continue to update the E-7 eligibility list all the way until the selection board adjourns.” The Navy will release a NAVADMIN to announce requirements for the E-7 selection board in February. As part of the MyNavy HR Force Development team, NETPDC provides products and services that enable and enhance education, training, career development, and personnel advancement throughout the Navy. Primary elements of the command include the Voluntary Education Department, the Navy Advancement Center and the Resources Management Department.

  14. Thank you for that. Definitely gonna stay till 22 now.
  15. See screenshot from advancement manual
  16. I am not sure of your rate, but I would love to send my taxes. You're a genius and possibly a recluse, which in my opinion we need more of in the Navy, lol.
  17. Board info has been removed from the Performance Evaluation Continuity Report meaning the board has adjourned or will in the next day or so. So now its just them finalizing the NAVADMIN and the results. Hardest part of the long wait, is the final month. Good luck everyone
  18. LDO/CWO FB page posted that they will not come out till right before or at the same time the NAVADMIN goes live. Heres some fun facts Last 4 NAVADMINS came out between Feb 22- Mar 01; (22-23) are over the weekend; so nothing will drop then. That leaves us with the 24-28th; I would bet that it goes live sometime during that week. (1701Z/1540Z/1547Z/1654Z) Those times in zulu were the times that they released the announcing NAVADMIN. So lets avergaes those out and you get 1610Z. But we can go deeper here. (FEB16/MAR17/MAR18/FEB19), if you were to follow this pattern the results would go live MAR2020 so the second. But lets see what days the last 4 NAVADMINS went live starting with FY16 :Thursday; FY17 Wednesday; FY18 Thursday, FY19 Friday. So i have now broken the code and the NAVADMIN will come out Feb 27 2020 at 1600Z (1000pm) CST. Friday morning, the last working day of the month you will wake up in anticipation and excitement to check your selection status and BOL will not load cause the website is down. The End.
  19. Tax season can be a dreaded time of year for many people, but the Defense Department's Military OneSource offers the MilTax program to ease filing stress for service members and their families. https://www.defense.gov/explore/story/Article/2059309/miltax-military-onesource-offers-free-tax-prep/
  20. A little Jerry Springer action... https://www.13newsnow.com/article/news/national/military-news/sailors-charged-after-fight-at-holiday-party-for-uss-dwight-d-eisenhower-in-norfolk/291-e2189d87-1385-4797-a046-981b36e0a28a
  21. I am coming up on 20 years next year and if I didn't make Chief this year and put in my Fleet Reserve package, would that affect me in anyway for the next cycle?
  22. Last year they came out after the board finished up. Recently, I've been hearing rumors it won't come out until or right before the results come out. Unknowns are the worst. So for now I'm just focusing on that "S" in BOL and my name on the navadmin. I'm more sure about that then guessing dates. 😂
  23. When are these quotas coming out!!!
  24. Because they are not interested in the majority of the stuff on your JST, “credits” for your rating or schools, and other things that have not been applied and accepted by a school towards an actual degree or degree plan. If you have college credits from a university then submit those transcripts. If you have a degree make sure it’s showing in your PSR or submit your diploma.
  25. I wonder why the LDO Public Brief specifically advises Sailors to not include a copy of their JST with their packages then?
  26. The board does not look at your JST. They only look at your OMPF, PSR, and your board package.
