  2. Hello! I took the E-5 exam for the first time in SEP 2018 and just now noticed that I received no points for education . I went to bootcamp with official transcripts from the college I earned my associates from and they are documented in my OMPF. However, they are not in my Joint Service Transcript Combo report. I used the Navy Final Multiple calculator with the exact same data from my exam report but put in the 2 points for an associates and was over the minimum multiple. I went ahead and ordered the official transcript for JST Operations Center so it is added for the March cycle, hopefully. If I met the minimum multiple for advancement does that mean I was eligible for selection or would I have gotten advanced? Thank you!
  3. When are the exam results posted? First week of March or so?
  4. Last week
  5. Navy officials are changing what a top admiral called "fundamental flaws" in its waiver and appeal process for commissioning programs after a sailor who was denied a chance to pursue a career as an officer was sent to Syria, where she was killed in a suicide bombing. Adm. William Moran, vice chief of naval operations, sent a letter detailing the changes to the family of Chief Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive) Shannon Kent, Stars and Stripes reported Wednesday. https://www.businessinsider.com/the-navy-makes-major-policy-changes-after-a-sailor-was-killed-in-syria-2019-2
  6. TAKASAKI, Japan — A South Korea-based U.S. airman brought a World War II-era Japanese flag to a small city in Gunma prefecture Thursday to complete a family mission started after his grandfather died nearly two decades before. Senior Master Sgt. Lowell Armstrong, 44, presented the signature-covered flag to the family of Masashi Ito, who was killed in the bloody Battle of Iwo Jima on March 17, 1945. https://www.stripes.com/news/s-korea-based-us-airman-returns-japanese-flag-taken-as-war-trophy-in-battle-of-iwo-jima-1.568610

The Navy is soliciting applications from Mass Communication Specialists (MC) for the Advanced Military Visual Journalism (AMVJ) training program for academic year 2019-2020. The program offers two courses of study: Photojournalism (Course number S-400-2013) which earns NEC A08A and Motion Media (Course number S-400-2014) which earns NEC A05A. Class reporting date for both courses is tentatively scheduled for 29 July 2019 with a projected graduation date of 11 May 2020. 2. Applications must be submitted no later than 8 March 2019. For complete directions and guidance for electronic submission, contact POC listed above and in paragraph 7. Applications must include the following: a. A command endorsement on letterhead summarizing the candidate's qualifications, a statement certifying the portfolio is the sole work of the applicant and recommendation for acceptance in the program. Parent commands are responsible for eligibility verification for endorsed candidates and submission of applicable waivers. Waivers of prerequisites, (e.g., TIS, PG, TOS, etc.) will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Commanding Officers should address applicant's maturity, ability to work independently, financial security, and academic ability when recommending a nominee, particularly when requesting waivers. b. An essay explaining why a candidate is interested in the AMVJ program. Essay should include motivations, influences, expectations, and post-course desires. c. A portfolio demonstrating sufficient technical ability to successfully complete the course. The portfolio requirements for the Advanced Military Visual Journalism-Navy program closely mirror the portfolio requirements for the Navy Strategic Communicator of the Year award of the Russell Egnor Navy Media Awards. An applicant must submit a portfolio with communication products from across the full-spectrum of media disciplines. Candidates must submit a portfolio consisting of eight examples of their work. Portfolio must contain the following: one writing product from the Individual Writing category; two video products from the Individual Video category; four photo products from the Individual Photo category (must have one picture story and one portrait personality and two photos from the any other Individual Photo category); and one graphic design product from any of the Individual Graphic Design categories.

Applicants are required to provide a biography and digital full length in NSUs of themselves as part of the submission process. The biography and photo are not part of the selection process but will be used to identify and introduce the selectees to the faculty and staff at Syracuse University if selected. Contact Mr. Jeff Elliott directly for the submission process. 3. Prior to acceptance to the program and distribution of orders, applicants must: a. Be approved to reenlist or extend in the MC Rating through June 2023. b. Not reach high year tenure before June 2023. c. Have a command endorsed 1306. d.

Click on the link at the top of the list, Catalog of Navy Training Courses (CANTRAC), and search for course information using either Course Identification Number listed in paragraph 1 above. 5. Because selection to the program requires a Permanent Change of Station transfer, applicants require completion of a two-year minimum time on station at current command to be eligible to apply. Applicants currently under orders may apply and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants who have executed orders and are en route to their next command are not eligible. Primary consideration will be given to applicants with a projected rotation date in Fiscal Year 2019. Navy Personnel Command has the final approval prior to final selection. Applicants are reminded that graduates earn NEC A05A or NEC A08A, dependent upon program attended, and will be detailed to A05A or A08A billets. Both NECs are predominately sea duty billets. 6. The selection board will convene in mid March 2019. Selectees will be notified via Naval message not later than 12 April 2019. 7. Point of contact is Mr. Jeff Elliott who can be reached by email at jeff.elliott(at)navy.mil or by phone at (703) 692-4754. 8. Request widest dissemination. 9. Released by CAPT G. L.

  8. I'd say get your EDMC to sign it. I'm getting a master chief of my rate in my command to sign mine as he outranks my direct supervisor, who is of a different rate.
  9. Are you asking about the one I am applying for? 651X
  10. Oh my buddy is one too, we went through season together and he got redistributed.
  11. PSC but not paid yet.
  12. What's you rate and paygrade?
  13. Anyone being forced distributed? Looks like I have orders to a carrier. EDA 20 March 🤔
  14. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new survey of military families living on U.S. bases found most are dissatisfied with their housing, often citing serious health and safety hazards – results that counter years of Pentagon reports claiming soaring satisfaction rates among military housing tenants. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-military-survey/military-survey-finds-deep-dissatisfaction-with-family-housing-on-u-s-bases-idUSKCN1Q21GR
  15. The legendary comedian and convicted sexual predator is having an "amazing experience" at the SCI Phoenix maximum-security prison thanks in part to his time serving in the military in the 1950s, his spokesman Andrew Wyatt told the New York Daily News. "He was in the Navy for four years, and this is no different than being in the Navy," Wyatt said. "People have rooms. People are over you. They're just doing their jobs, and you have to follow rules. That's how he operates every day." https://taskandpurpose.com/bill-cosby-compares-prison-navy
  16. This is why this forum is so important. the amount of knowledge and support is incredible
  17. I would like to think so, as a lot of effort was put into preparing for the appraisal board, scrubbing through my record, selective in the roles and job positions I took on, etc etc. But I'm sure others went to the same extent to prepare themselves as well. Only two more weeks until we all know.
  18. Bro! If you don't make it call me and we will get Donnie T on the phone to fix this atrocity!
  19. When you look at the photo above, you see only a stunning image of three stealth fighters soaring in close formation. What you are actually looking at, however, is the result of a "billion-dollar dance" directed by a talented US Navy camerawoman, who managed to pull off a perfect shot while puking her insides out. https://www.thisisinsider.com/navy-camerawoman-tells-story-of-how-she-got-these-stunning-f-35-images-2019-2
  20. A Navy plane was being towed out of a hangar last week when its tail clipped the top of the structure, leading to what could amount to millions of dollars in repairs. An E-6B Mercury, a nuclear command-and-control aircraft, was being moved at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, on Thursday as part of its daily operations when the vertical stabilizer at the rear of the aircraft struck the hangar, said Lt. Travis Callaghan, a spokesman for Naval Air Forces. https://www.businessinsider.com/navy-e-6b-mercury-command-aircraft-damaged-in-hangar-incident-2019-2
  21. Third time applying for 649X. Meeting all the discreet requirements and LADR for MAC+. To be completely honest, not being selected last year was a huge blow. My RSO and ISO each spoke to me and explained that it's okay to be pissed, but to look at the bigger picture. By potentially delaying a year, I have had the opportunity to win SOY and network with CMDCM's throughout my region. I've gone through more assessments and have even had the privilege of being acting ITO, allowing me to interact with Region N36 and N37 personnel on a much more in-depth level. Hell, if I am selected in the next few weeks, I will have the opportunity to right-hand a senior SECO selected for LCDR in addition to a CWO3 who is concluding an echelon-III tour. So the moral of the story is that if you aren't selected, that it's not the end of the world. The extra year will only produce more opportunities to learn and better your preparation/potential to be an LDO.
  22. Sounds like you have a really good shot.
  23. I had two O6's and a Admiral on my board. All 10's and solid writeups. Also had a LOR by a second SC Admiral. We shall see. Who knows how all the weights and measures actually add up. At the end of the day, I feel like it all comes down to how the different ingredients mix and are received by those pushing the buttons.
  24. I had an 05 on my board with a great appraisal, but not sure if they will take me all the way to the finish line.
