  2. This post has been updated to clarify the proposed location of the artificial reef made from the hull of former USS Clamagore. The attack boat was previously planned to be sunk off of Key West, Fla. However, the lawsuit said the proposed location was off the coast of Charleston, S.C. A group of retired submariners is fighting the State of South Carolina to keep what is believed to be the last World War II and Cold War-era GUPPY III submarine from forever becoming an underwater playground for fish and SCUBA divers. https://news.usni.org/2019/04/19/submariners-are-suing-south-carolina-to-save-cold-war-era-attack-boat
  3. Thanks, Had some debate, that I mostly stayed out of since I didn't know, that if selected your fleet reserve was automatically cancelled. Only thing I remembered was telling my CCC that I wanted to cancel my request when the change in HYT came out.
  4. Got a similar question regarding TEB. The only way for me to xfer benifits to my two year old is to extend to match EAOSs to HYT. My NC1 is telling me that will flag my record for retirement and the board will look at that negativity. Spoke to a NCC while TAD who said that he’s spoke with one the guys approving these TEB request for those that fall under NAVADMIN 020/19, and he’s said that it is mandatory for TEB and the board should understand. NC1 still being cautious about the situation and avoiding my emails...WTF.
  5. I’m changing it back to normal.
  6. Have a few of us at my command that are either about a year out from HYT, or getting close. The question came up about having an approved fleet reserve and picking it up. I have not gotten a clear answer on if picking up Chief would automatically cancel the fleet reserves approval, or if you would have to go in and request it being cancelled.
  7. I have quite a few questions about this new application: 1.) What are you putting in section 3 a and b in the CO statement section. Are you just copying and pasting your old statement from the CO into them, if so what are you placing in section a and b specifically? 2.) Then for section we write out own statement, are we still putting the honor, courage and commitment in there or just huck that out the winda!

  9. Not a problem. Please email me at Rafael.r.perez@navy.mil and I’ll assist!
  10. Last week
  11. PORTSMOUTH Waverly Sykes ran up the gangway into the billowing smoke at Pier 5. “Chief, there are men trapped in that hold!” workmen on the deck of the USS Saturn shouted. The Norfolk Navy Yard fire chief could hear the cries of the men below as fire hoses were laid on the deck. He grabbed one and descended the ladder behind his assistant chief, battling flames on his way down into the smoke and fume-filled atmosphere of the ship’s third hold. The firefighters knocked down flames overhead and on the bulkhead. A pile of cork about 6 feet high was on fire on the ship’s starboard side. The flames there seemed more stubborn than the rest. They doused them with water and kicked the pile over with their boots until the flames were snuffed out. https://pilotonline.com/news/local/history/article_4541519c-4e61-11e9-a4c7-d7edeeff2f07.html
  12. I have heard stuff from "buy your anchors" to "maybe they elbowed your record off the table by accident (Jokingly) " to " I don't know what to say". I have two more decent tries in my motivation before I start thinking about retirement and transition and start working on that. I will see what input I can get at this upcoming board symposium.
  13. For the new application are you guys leaving the BOLD information Bolded or changing it back to normal once the required information has been inputted?
  14. WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy is investigating a report that a female Marine found a camera in a women's bathroom of the USS Arlington, according to three military officials. In a statement, a spokesperson for the Sixth Fleet confirmed that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is probing a "recording device in a head" aboard the Arlington, an amphibious transport dock that is currently in port in Greece. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/military/hidden-camera-found-women-s-bathroom-aboard-navy-ship-n996446
  15. The days of paper advancement sheets will soon be a thing of the past for Sailors. Beginning with the Fall 2019 active duty (Cycle 244) and reserve component (Cycle 105) advancement exams, automated enlisted advancement worksheets (EAW) will become the official source of recorded advancement eligibility. https://www.navy.mil/ah_online/ftrStory.asp?issue=3&id=109273&fbclid=IwAR1zheyxPgcmb_Sgk3ZFE65y4Dh9-8A9KszsNJlVW7Vb_Ba9s3RLs_b1e2k
  16. Have you had any feedback from MCPOs that have reviewed your package? Good job on the ompf that’s exactly what you have to do.
  17. ITC, good advice. I have been trying to get those anchors for the past 8 years. I am now heading towards 17 years in and it seems as if I am trying way to hard. but oh well, right? Every year I thought I had it , I did not. even with 25% quotas. I think this year is my best shot ever though. If I don't make it, I don't know what else to do. I actually accomplished everything on the LADR you mention or career path but one, which is an aviation qualification "safe for flight" however I know plenty of people that made it wthout it and the path even says not mandatory. (I actually have a friend that has the qual and still did not make it, and has the same stuff I do) But I do have outstanding tour on recruiting, (ROY x2) two coms, from that alone, good evals etc. My last eval I received SOY, 5.0 EP, I have my MTS from my current instructor duty, Just got my bachelors, MOVSM, PPME,, JPME,USMAP, Major collaterals, LPO at sea etc, you name it, I did it. I have just fixed my OMPF (which I will share some info for the others to use shortly) I am submitting a Career summary sheet for the first time ever out of my 7 past tries. I have heard nothing but good things about it. So, for others dealing with OMPF issues. I was missing my 5th, 6th and 7th nams from my OMPF. I did submit my awards to MILL_P33awards@navy.mil as instructed by NPC and my PSR was updated, but my OMPF did not. I was given the run around for 2 and a half weeks, until I said enough. I called NPC again and asked to have a "ticket" opened to clarify why my PSR was updated but my OMPF was not. Within literally 2 hours, I received an e-mail that my OMPF reflects my last 3 awards. And yes they did. So if you are having issues with them updating, ask to have a ticket opened which speed up the process. They will initially tell you that they have 45-90 days to update your record. When you are in a crunch and want to update your record, you do not have time to wait. And if anyone will say why I waited so long, I did not. All those nams I received during the past 8 months, and my admin submitted them 3 times to no avail. Just wanted to ensure everyone knows there are avenues to speed things up. I have a board symposium coming up soon, so I will pass up whatever info I get from there. and if someone has questions they want answers to and do not have access to MC's that sat boards, post them up, I'll ask them and provide feedback.
  18. Advancements to Petty Officer Third Class and Petty Officer Second Class are based on the Final Multiple Score (FMS) rank order and vacancies (quotas). The FMS element with the most weighting is the exam standard score, which is a measurement of rating knowledge compared to peers. Performance is also a heavily weighted FMS factor. The other factors are awards, Pass Not Advance (PNA) points, education and Service in Pay Grade (SIPG). The Navy Advancement Center will send advancement notifications to command triads the week prior to Memorial Day.

  21. I have a question regarding the MSC-IPP and service members with tattoos; if anyone can answer. Is anyone aware if full sleeves have been preventing anyone from receiving a commission through the MSC-IPP? As a current enlisted I've heard various answers regarding how enlisted sailors with such tattoos are viewed by acceptance boards. Thanks in advance. Also, I apologize if this is not the appropriate place to ask such questions.
  22. congratulations on your selection. Would you mind sharing some information with me. Submitting for 7821 as well. Thank you in advance.
  23. Hello all, just wanted to share a little of what I think helped my get selected. From what I heard career summary letters are good, I personally didn’t submit one. NJPs; I have one, got selected first time up. EP Evals; Don’t have any. I did get #1 MP. So, what do I think got me selected? sustained superior performance and being a sme at my rate. I was enlightened by a MCPO when he compared my evals to some else’s that to me was definitely getting selected but didn’t, straight EP Sailor btw. Like I said, my evals are MPs but written as EPs. One major factor is having 5.0 on Professional Knowledge. It’s a big thing now. You can’t just be the collateral hog and not know your rate. Your evals need to show progression, stay above the COs average and make a climb every eval. Lastly, your ompf needs to be up to date. NO EXCUSES. I spent a lot of time updating it and getting it squared away. Submitting awards as enclosures doesn’t look good. Finally, from 3 MCPOs if you submit a designation letter, I.e DCTT, 3MTT... your evals better show the impact. Who cares if you were the 3MC asst if block 43 doesn’t have anything about it. Whatever is in block 29 better be explained or highlighted on block 43. Lastly, make sure you are growing professionally, take some college courses or earn certifications. You growing as a person will benefit your shop and the navy. Man, sorry this was so long but I wanted to cover everything. Best of luck to all. One more thing, like mentioned on a previous comment, use the LADR and make sure you hitting those goals, LPO, WCS, rate specific watches. Check all the boxes!!
  24. A junior officer has been charged with raping and stalking another sailor, including allegedly sending a grim message to her with a photo of a stabbed pumpkin. Ensign Brendan W. Butler, 25, a surface warfare officer in training on board the amphibious transport dock Mesa Verde, had previously been in a relationship with the accuser, according to his civilian defense attorney, Benjamin Beliles. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/04/17/officer-accused-of-raping-and-stalking-a-fellow-sailor/
  25. @BOATSNUGGYD that should be able to be pulled from NAC. I will look tonight when I go in and post it if it’s there. Has to be access for a .mil domain
