I know I asked this a few hours ago but I'll ask again since time has passed and new people are on here. Are there any FTS/SELRES greenside Sailors on this forum that has been contacted by Marine Forces Reserve today? Everyone I talked to a couple hours ago has heard nothing. Any insight would help......

 

.............my anxiety :)

My husband is a HM1 AD at a MEPS and hasn't been told anything either.

This is the part I don't like - those who get left in the dark. Happens every year. Take care of your Sailor? I don't think so :unsure:

Definitely. I certainly can not post my reactions to husband. lol But if not today, I will wake up at 0500 and check for him. 

**Thanks for the reminder, didn't realize that was included** :(

My husband hasn't heard anything yet.  And I'm the one who is having anxiety about it!! 

His attitude -- we'll be able to see tomorrow.

He is way toooooo patient sometimes I swear!

Tell me about it! My husbands the same way. I was tossing and turning all night and have been sick to my stomach with anxiety waiting to hear something.

Lol, that is automated. Every rule in the guideline has a particular origin. For that one, it was the argument I got into with the Navy office that actually releases the results, and them only sharing with that paper.

Thanks for sneaking me back in Tony.  Great to be back.

Jumped back into the mix to tell all the Selects - "Congrats".  Enjoy the moment and have fun.

If this wasn't your year, I have good news:  The board will convene again next year!

Congrats again!

 

 

Glad to see you swing by. BBb)

Well my husband didn't make it. It was his first time up but his package was strong. Apparently what held him back was being 1 of 1 at his current duty station. 

Heres to busting his chops studying for the next time.

Congrats to all those who made it and good luck on your new journey as chief.

I'm not saying my path was right, or wrong for that matter.  Now that the board members list is out, engage them.  Even if you have been up numerous times and your record is gtg.  I reached out to 3 of the ITCMs last year, only one responded but she did take the time to review and make recommendations.  If you like to read and you are junior to this forum read The Chief Petty Officer Guidebook, pay close attention to the wheel of success. It MIGHT be just what you need for the sprinkles on you package.

I got it, it's on my kindle. My husband has access to it also. So I'll be easy for him to get to it. Thank you!

@HawkISback,

I've known you on this forum for a very, very long time and have seen you move up in rank over the years. In between making rank and getting kicked off this forum here and there :D , I've seen the knowledge and experience you've gained and then shared with others – I saw that transformation that was leading to Chief.

I am very happy you made Chief, and I had to go get my daughter to tell her the good news that you had made it. Whatever you do, please continue helping others and whatever happens don't change. Just continue being yourself because you were already Chief's material.

BBb)

      WASHINGTON — The Navy’s warships have been spending less time at sea and more time under costly and lengthy repairs since 2011, according to a government watchdog report released Tuesday. A review of 151 surface warships by the Government Accountability Office showed worsening maintenance delays, more breakdowns requiring repairs and a rising number of working ship parts removed and used elsewhere due to parts shortages in the industry supply chain.
