  1. Past hour
  2. My thoughts exactly. Previous years I’ve had the thought of what if I had sent this or I should have sent that. I have only sent what was new or what wasn’t reflected in my record yet. This year I want to highlight everything and it will be the first time submitting a career summary.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I always here mixed reviews. Like even if it’s on an eval; if it’s a big ticket item send it in anyway. Especially if it’s on an older eval. I have my degree, MTS cert, USMAP certs, Navy COOL certs, SEJPME/PPME/BPME, and some other things that’ll have me at like 14 enclosures. A few MCPOs said it’s a lot, but if it’s important send it. I refuse to leave any doubt in my mind on what I should or shouldn’t have sent once I hit send this year.
  5. What are you sending in? I'm submitting SJPME, USMAP cert, FLOC, ARCOM and I may or may not send in a few designation letters. I have a few bullets for them on the evals so it might not be necessary to submit. A lot of master chiefs told me if it's on your eval, don't submit it.
  6. And results didn’t come out till Aug 11 that year. Scuttlebutt I am hearing is a sep-oct time frame season for a condensed season this year.
  7. I didn't read this whole article but it references May 4, 2010. -> https://www.stripes.com/news/tenn-flooding-leaves-navy-personnel-records-inaccessible-1.101813 I do remember there was chaos and calamity at the time
  8. Last week
  9. This has happen before. I was trying to search for it but got caught up working and being a teacher. It was when Millington flooded really bad. Does anyone recall when that was? It could give us an idea of what to expect....somewhat.
  10. WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Statement from the Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly, regarding the relief of the Commanding Officer of USS Theodore Roosevelt. --------------- Good afternoon. Thank you again for your diligence and courage in keeping the American people informed as we all deal with the profound ramifications, and rapid developments, associated with this crisis. I am here today to inform you that today at my direction, the Commanding Officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Captain Crozier, was relieved of command by the Carrier Strike Group Commander, Rear Admiral Stuart Baker. The Executive Officer, Captain Dan Keeler, has assumed command temporarily until such time as Rear Admiral Select Carlos Sardiello arrives in Guam to assume command. Rear Admiral Select Sardiello is the former commanding officer of the Theodore Roosevelt so he is extremely well-acquainted with the ship, many members of its crew and the operations and capabilities of the ship itself. He is the best person in the Navy right now to take command under these circumstances. As Secretary of the Navy, I could not be more proud of our men and women serving as part of the Navy and Marine Corps team. I can assure you that no one cares more than I do about their safety and welfare. I myself have a son in uniform, who is currently serving right now on active duty in Korea—one of the first nations in the world to have a significant spike in Coronavirus cases. I understand, both as a parent and a veteran, how critical our support lines are for the health and well-being of our people, especially now in the midst of a global pandemic. But there is a larger strategic context, one full of national security imperatives, of which all our commanders must all be aware today. While we may not be at war in a traditional sense, neither are we truly at peace. Authoritarian regimes are on the rise. Many nations are reaching, in many ways, to reduce our capacity to accomplish our national goals. This is actively happening every day. It has been a long time since the Navy and Marine Corps team has faced this broad array of capable global strategic challengers. A more agile and resilient mentality is necessary, up and down the chain of command. Perhaps more so than in the recent past, we require commanders with the judgment, maturity, and leadership composure under pressure to understand the ramifications of their actions within that larger dynamic strategic context. We all understand and cherish our responsibilities, and frankly our love, for all of our people in uniform, but to allow those emotions to color our judgment when communicating the current operational picture can, at best, create unnecessary confusion, and at worst, provide an incomplete picture of American combat readiness to our adversaries. When the Commanding Officer of the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT decided to write his letter of 30 March 2020 that outlined his concerns for his crew in the midst of a COVID-19 outbreak, the Department of the Navy had already mobilized significant resources for days in response to his previous requests. On the same date marked on his letter, my Chief of Staff had called the CO directly, at my request, to ensure he had all the resources necessary for the health and safety of his crew. The CO told my Chief of Staff that he was receiving those resources, and was fully aware of the Navy’s response, only asking that the he wished the crew could be evacuated faster. My Chief of Staff ensured that the CO knew that he had an open line to me to use at any time. He even called the CO again a day later to follow up. At no time did the CO relay the various levels of alarm that I, along with the rest of the world, learned from his letter when it was published two days later. Once I read the letter, I immediately called the Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Gilday, and the Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, ADM Aquilino. ADM Gilday had just read the letter that morning as well, and ADM Aquilino had it the day before. We had a teleconference within minutes of my reading of that article, including the Commander, SEVENTH Fleet, VADM William Merz, ADM Aquilino, ADM Gilday, the Department of the Navy’s Surgeon General, RADM Bruce Gillingham, and others. That evening, we held another teleconference with the entire chain of command. The next day, I spoke with the CO of the THEODORE ROOSEVELT myself, and this morning, I have spoken to the TR’s Carrier Strike Group Commander, RDML Stuart Baker. RDML Baker did not know about the letter before it was sent to him via email by the CO. It is important to understand that the Strike Group Commander, the CO’s immediate boss, is embarked on the Theodore Roosevelt, right down the passageway from him. The letter was sent over non- secure, unclassified email even though that ship possesses some of the most sophisticated communications and encryption equipment in the Fleet. It was sent outside the chain of command, at the same time the rest of the Navy was fully responding. Worse, the Captain’s actions made his Sailors, their families, and many in the public believe that his letter was the only reason help from our larger Navy family was forthcoming, which was hardly the case. Command is a sacred trust that must be continually earned, both from the Sailors and Marines one leads, and from the institution which grants that special, honored privilege. As I learned more about the events of the past week on board USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN-71), including my personal conversations with the Strike Group Commander, Commander, SEVENTH Fleet, Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, the Chief of Naval Operations, and CAPT Crozier himself, I could reach no other conclusion than that Captain Crozier had allowed the complexity of his challenge with COVID breakout on the ship to overwhelm his ability to act professionally, when acting professionally was what was needed most. We do, and we should, expect more from the Commanding Officers of our aircraft carriers. I did not come to this decision lightly. I have no doubt in my mind that Captain Crozier did what he thought was in the best interests of the safety and well-being of his crew. Unfortunately, it did the opposite. It unnecessarily raised alarms with the families of our Sailors and Marines with no plan to address those concerns. It raised concerns about the operational capabilities and operational security of the ship that could have emboldened our adversaries to seek advantage, and it undermined the chain of command who had been moving and adjusting as rapidly as possible to get him the help he needed. For these reasons, I lost confidence in his ability to lead that warship as it continues to fight through this virus, get the crew healthy, so that it can continue to meet its national security requirements. In my judgement relieving him of command was in the best interests of the United States Navy and the nation in this time when the nation needs the Navy to be strong and confident in the face of adversity. The responsibility for this decision rests with me. I expect no congratulations for it, and it gives me no pleasure in making it. CAPT Crozier is an honorable man, who despite this uncharacteristic lapse of judgment, has dedicated himself throughout a lifetime of incredible service to our nation. Pursuant to this action, and with my full support, the Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Gilday has directed the Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Robert Burke, to conduct an investigation into the circumstances and climate of the entire Pacific Fleet to help determine what may have contributed to this breakdown in the chain of command. We must ensure we can count on the right judgment, professionalism, composure, and leadership from our Commanding Officers everywhere on our Navy and Marine Corps team, but especially in the Western Pacific. I have no indication that there is a broader problem in this regard, but we have obligation to calmly and evenly investigate that nonetheless. To our Commanding Officers, it would be a mistake to view this decision as somehow not supportive of your duty to report problems, request help, protect your crews, and challenge assumptions as you see fit. This decision is not one of retribution. It is about confidence. It is not an indictment of character, but rather of judgement. While I do take issue with thevalidity of some of the points in Captain Crozier’s letter, he was absolutely correct in raising them. It was the way in which he did this, by not working through and with his Strike Group Commander to develop a strategy to resolve the problems he raised, by not sending the letter to and through his chain of command, by not protecting the sensitive nature of the information contained within the letter appropriately, and lastly by not reaching out to me directly to voice is concerns, after that avenue had been provided to him through my team, that was unacceptable. Let me be clear, you all have a duty to be transparent with your respective chains of command, even if you fear they might disagree with you. This duty requires courage, but it also requires respect for that chain of command, and for the sensitivity of the information you decide to share and the manner you choose to share it. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I would like to send a message to the crew of the Theodore Roosevelt and their families back here at home. I am entirely convinced that your Commanding Officer loves you, and that he had you at the center of his heart and mind in every decision that he has made. I also know that you have great affection, and love, for him as well. But it is my responsibility to ensure that his love and concern for you is matched, if not exceeded by, his sober and professional judgement under pressure. You deserve that throughout all the dangerous activities for which you train so diligently, but most importantly, for those situations which are unpredictable and are hard to plan for. It’s important because you are the TR, you are the Big Stick, and what happens onboard the TR matters far beyond the physical limits of your hull. Your shipmates across the fleet need for you to be strong and ready—and most especially right now they need you to be courageous in the face of adversity. The nation needs to know that the Big Stick is undaunted, unstoppable —and that you will stay that way as we as a Navy help you through this COVID-19 challenge. Our adversaries need to know this as well. They respect and fear the Big Stick, and they should. We will not allow anything to diminish that respect and fear as you, and the rest of our nation, fights through this virus. As I stated, we are not at war by traditional measures, but neither are we at peace. The nation you defend is in a fight right now for our economic, personal and political security, and you are on the front lines of this fight in many ways. You can offer comfort to your fellow citizens who are struggling and fearful here at home by standing the watch, and working your way through this pandemic with courage and optimism and set the example for the nation. We have an obligation to ensure you have everything you need as fast as we can get it there, and you have my commitment that we will not let you down. The nation you have sworn to defend is in a fight, and the nations and bad actors around the world who wish us harm should understand that the Big Stick is in the neighborhood and that her crew is standing the watch. Thank you, and I am ready to answer any questions you may have.

REF B IS OUSD P&R POLICY FOR THE ELIGIBILITY AND ISSUANCE OF A CAC TO DOD PERSONNEL.// RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces and provides temporary guidance for Navy personnel who require Common Access Card Identification (CAC)/(ID) services during the COVID-19 emergency in accordance with reference (a). a. To maximize force health protection and ensure continuity of operations, all Navy Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) sites will only accept customers who have made CAC online appointments. Priority support will be provided to those with time sensitive situations (e.g. active-duty Service Members whose CAC has been lost/stolen or is expiring within the next 60 days, ID card issuance for newly retired members, dependents with cards expiring within the next 30 days and CAC PIN resets). If unable to schedule an appointment, customers will be serviced via a controlled walk-in process for CAC PIN resets only. Navy RAPIDS sites shall screen customers before entry in line with the Center for Disease Control and Navy guidance. All customers are expected to complete a self- screening questionnaire before accessing the RAPIDS facility. The screening questionnaire will be prominently posted at the entrance to each facility. Those currently sick or who have been in close personal contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or those who have recently traveled (internationally or domestically outside their local area) will be denied entry. b. To check the operating status of a RAPIDS site and schedule an appointment, go to the RAPIDS Appointment Scheduler at https://rapids- appointments.dmdc.osd.mil. Additional site specific information will be provided for each location as well as the status of alternate locations. c. Personnel must provide proof of identity documentation and have a valid verified DEERS record in accordance with reference (b). d. Personnel issued a new CAC must logon to a government furnished workstation via a wired network in order to cache their new Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) credentials. Network access to support telework through the workstation will not be available until this action is completed. Impacted personnel should follow local guidance for locations to connect to the network for required log in action. 2. If you or a family member have a dependent or retiree ID card please be aware that your benefits (medical, dental, etc.) will remain in effect as long as your military sponsor is entitled to benefits. For example, the family of a married E-6 with an end of active obligated service date of January 2022 is authorized Department of Defense (DoD) benefits until that date, regardless of the status of their ID card(s). 3. In preparation for a situation in which users are unable to report to a RAPIDS site for CAC reissuance, DoD is developing an online technical solution that will allow users with soon-to-expire PKI certificates to load new PKI certificates that will be valid for up to 1 year. The technical solution will not be available to personnel with expired PKI certificates. Expect additional information about this capability and other ID card policy updates to be promulgated soon. 4. Primary points of contact are: a. General ID card services inquires: MyNavy Career Center, 1- 833-330-6622 or via e-mail at askmncc(at)navy.mil. b.

  12. You Are My Hero Capt!! WASHINGTON – Videos posted on social media showed a huge send-off for Navy Capt. Brett Crozier, the commander of an aircraft carrier who was ousted Thursday after sending a letter pleading with Navy leadership to protect his crew from the spreading coronavirus. One video from the Facebook account of Michael Washington shows hundreds of service members on the hanger deck of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, which is currently docked in Guam, chanting "Captain Crozier! Captain Crozier!" and clapping. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/04/03/coronavirus-capt-brett-crozier-gets-send-off-uss-roosevelt/2939098001/

  15. Great question. All boards have been pushed back so it’ll definitely be interesting to see how everything unfolds for E7-E9 selects. It would suck if they tried to “crunch” things due to being pressed for time as it might risk the boards doing their due diligence for all board eligibles.
  16. Good question, I'd think rates related to construction too but just a wild guess. So there's Seabees, maybe cooks too, this thing could grow. Definitely medical though.
  17. Just curious on everyone's thoughts! How late do you think results will be this year or do you think they will 'crunch' it all in, to keep things on track?
  18. I wonder how many members in IRR will be recalled if any, and if they are only looking for medical Ratings specifically. What is everyone’s else thoughts on this? When was the last time a recall like this has been activated by our Commander in Chief?
