    MR1Lane, Of course you feel the need to disagree with any and all substandard reservists. However, a good majority of the reserves were active at one point or another. We may not live as close to a military installation as active folks, but our resolve is an equal plateau when it comes to leadership and ability. Where you have 1 full time job, we have 2 and many go to school at the same time. It would appear to me that your tunnel vision will be corrected if you Select. Good luck and learn often, HTC

    For all the FTS and SELRES folks: Merry Results Eve!! Don't forget that before you go to bed tonight to sit out a cup of hot black coffee and 3 Krispy Kreme donuts before the CNO comes down the chimney to distribute anchors to the good girls and boys.

    Since this is my last look ever, I think they need to change the results to read: Selected, Maybe Next Year, or Retirement!!! Nothing so negative as Not Selected. what do you all think?

    Here is some kind wisdom for all of you hopeful board eligibles. If and when you are bestowed the tremendous honor of wearing Anchors, you will find that no matter where you go and no matter who is there you are a Chief. Active, Reserve or FTS it does not matter. The respect from a fellow Chief is always or should always be returned in kind. We all come from different places and have different leadership styles which is what makes it such a beautiful organization. If we were all the same life would be very boring. That being said you need to decide what kind of Chief you want to be. A Chief who looks down at his or her own brothers and sisters or a Chief who can rise above prejudice and focus on the real task of taking care of Sailors. Good luck All!

    I will start doing some back-end maintenance soon that will affect the forum. Calamity and chaos may ensue but rest assured that the forum will still be here.

    Typically the pinning of the anchors can be done by anyone you choose, but donning of the Chiefs cover is performed by the selects sponsor. Good luck to everyone!

    I think most people this year are unsure how everything will play out this year since the board setup has changed after last years disaster. For everyone going back and forth with the AD, FTS, SelRes who is better or works harder should stop. Just shows how we still have a problem in the Navy, my thoughts and if I offend well truth hurts sometime and political correctness has never been a strong suit for me. AD yes we work our tail off when deployed but don’t be fooled thinking you have it harder that your FTS (full time support) brother/sister doing the same thing we do in AD With same pay and benefits just as a resevest on full time duty. Or that SelRes has it easy because they only work a weekend a month. If you have never worked with them or been stationed around you don’t know and should keep your mouth shut because you show everyone how smart your not! To my FTS and SelRes brothers and sister who think AD had no choice but to join because we couldn’t go to school or what have you, STOP! Yes many joined out of Highschool because many could not pay for college or maybe where smart enough not to get a mountain of student loan debt and let Uncle Sam pay for it with a G.I. Bill. TA, and OJT. Your not special just because you have a degree, BS, Master, PHD whatever I have seen plenty who are uneducated yet hold a piece of paper from some overpriced place saying they are suppose to be smart. All the way around we have our top performers as well as bottom feeders. If youR a hard charger keep it up but don’t tell me your actions will speak loud enough, if your not don’t tell me just get you rear in gear and pull your weight. Nothing magic about it just do your job. If we want to fix this issue the Navy needs to address a few things and our culture needs to change. First the Navy is too segregated, Officer Vs Enlisted ( I understand why but some take it too far) senior Officer vs JO (once again I understand why but some take it too far) and Enlisted: Chief vs Future Chief Petty Officers (FCPO AKA First Class, think about it just saying) and then the rest of our enlisted member E5-E4 and below (love the Below) somehow once you get selected for Chief and above, PFM happens and you are mature and did everything right, never mess up, and have all the answers. Sadly we all know this is not true but wish it where. Never forget where you came from and the #1 thing we all are trying to do or should be. TAKING CARE OF OUR SAILORS! Below and Above us. Stop all this infighting, this is addressed at all of us not anyone, group, paygrade specific. Stop trying to tell everyone what they are when you don’t know them, stop trying to make yourself sound better than everyone else (not a quality of a LEADER) Fact no one cares what YOU did, But instead What have you done for your Sailors, Command, Navy, Country. JFK said it best “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.” Fact if You separate, retire, get in trouble, or die, THE NAVY WILL KEEP OPERATING! You are not the one piece holding it all together no matter if you are an E1 or O10 (O11 time of war) we are a TEAM. Stepping off my soap box now. “I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.” -John F. Kennedy

    I like this, maybe call up a reservist with a "cushy" job in a computer programming department to make it a magic 8 ball? Oh and being sarcastic with that bit. Both my IA's I worked side by side with reservists, and have gotten to know a little of what they deal with. Worked with one at my last squadron, who as mentioned earlier has his masters. I've also worked with plenty TAR sailors who are awesome. So let's all just have a cold one, and get along? Been playing this game for 20 years. Have learned long ago to not judge a book by its cover.

    We are dealt a huge disservice as Reservists when we have to wait until August to find out. Think about it. AC gets roughly 40 days for phase 2 and we get less than 20, best case scenario with IDT or ADT orders for the final week. There are also selectees who have civilian jobs that preclude the physical torture sessions on weekdays so they skate while others deal with the pain. That does not prepare us very well. You know, the rumors this year were results prior to J4. Not going to happen now or the timeline would have been out today at 11 for Triad notification tomorrow and Friday results. Let's hope for July now I guess. Lastly, I hope big Navy gets its act together and stops screwing the Reservists over with these ridiculous "Combined Results". We deserve to have ample training time and to learn as much as the AC and FTS selectees. HM1

    Having never sat a board, all I could say is that it would only come into play if the board needs to look back that far. You should try at least to get that corrected through an admin change or at least submit (next time) a summary explaining that issue. If it shows on your continuity report would be cause for concern. The real deal with continuity is that the board wants to know that you will be able to help manage your Sailors records and how can you do that if you can't manage your own.

    Got a call this morning from a very reliable source up the food chain. Monday 7-9 Schedule released, Tuesday Triad notifications, Wednesday Navadmin. Take it with a grain of salt, but this person has been 99% accurate in the past. I'm counting on her info though. We will see next week!

    Tony, The CPO selection boards were based on the Officer selection boards. So they are mostly identical. But to give a quick rundown of the board process as I understand it (never having served on a board). The Recorders show up a week early and prep the candidates files and review their package submitals. The board president swears everyone in and two board members review each candidate and score them. The scores have to be within a margin of error. If the score is outside of the margin of error they rescore it I believe, or get a third reviewer. One of the board members that reviews the record will present the record to the board. There are smaller groups that are broken up by specialties that are chaired by a senior officer before the records are presented to the board. When the presenter shows the records to the board they have about 30 seconds to speak about the candidate. They must speak to two thing, the package the candidate sent in and any captains masts or courts martials in the record. Other than that they go over the positives and negatives and they give the candidate a letter grade. If the board members trust the presenter they will probably score the person according to the recommendation of the presenter. The board have a remote control with buttons for 100, 75, 50, 25 and 0. The board gets to see the person's name and they can ask questions about what they see, but they can't bring in outside, negative information. What they see is essentially a version of the PSR, with a section for qualifications and some other stuff. When everyone is graded they take the number of quotas and line up the candidates confidence factor. The confidence factor is just the average score that a candidate gets. If there are 6 quotas for selection they will take the top 5 and they are promoted. The 6th is what they call the bubble. They'll take the 6th highest score and a few of the scores below it. They'll rescore those records and whichever score is the highest will be selected. To be clear the board itself does not see your OMPF. They will not read your evals or awards, only the Records and the people that give your record the original score, such as the Presenter. I believe this process is standard for all boards officer and enlisted. The difference between the two usually comes into play with what they look for when scoring. For example enlisted evals tend not to leave "white space" and if they do it looks like you didn't do enough. You'll get a bad initial score by your presenter if he doesn't like your evals. In the officer world they tend to leave open lines and it's more about how strongly worded your Reporting Senior recommendation is and what rank they are. But the structure of the boards is the same. Hope this helps.

    Because people get off on being dramatic. It doesn't matter which component you're in; if you look above your left breast pocket, it still says "U.S. NAVY".

    As an FTS Sailor I have seen the good, bad, and the ugly on all 3 “sides.” We are all on one team and need each other! The “hand” can’t say to the “foot” I have no need of you. It’s counterintuitive and counterproductive to say the least. AC Sailors can be some of the most ignorant Sailors around, especially when they look down on FTS and SELRES Sailors! They often are uninformed and are just prejudiced like HTC states earlier. I’ve had AC bubbas tell me I wasn’t a real Sailor as FTS. Lol. Gimme a break! I was in an Active Duty shop back when I was an AE3 and I ran circles around the AC Sailors. What AC Sailors fail to realize is this: Many AC (Enlisted) Sailors joined out of need... they didn’t complete college and/or didn’t have any career prospects. Many FTS are the same and most didn’t realize what FTS was, and they simply got talked into it by a recruiter. BUT many of the SELRES Sailors are not like that! They joined to serve anyway, but many have Masters and Doctorates degrees and are well established in their careers but chose to join anyways. And almost all have at least a Bachelors Degree and are yet an Enlisted Sailor (overqualified to be Enlisted)! I used to think the same thing, but I must admit I am continually impressed the more I meet and talk with the SELRES Sailors because of what they are doing in their Civilian jobs, but also how much is required of them as Sailors... They work two plus full time jobs, and like my buddy, a Reserve HM1, completed medical school on top of that! But, I digress...

    That argument works both ways. You could say reservists need more training because they serve less time overall. Once they are mobilized they will be charge of a division. Do you want to work for a chief that got half the leadership training?

    I’m hoping that with 14 people making first in my rate this past cycle, that our quotas for E7 will actually be better than the 1% it was last year. Lol

    Timelines need to shift. E6 and below results come out around Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. 4th of July is fitting for E7. #inpatient.
