FY 24 CPO (E7) Selection Board


Recommended Posts

I have no lessons. I am bitter. This is the end. Over 19 years of service (11 years SBE) to include 3 PCS afloat tours. I had command collaterals (MWR, 3MA, CFL, SSO/SECMAN), LPO Sea and shore. 2 degrees, MOVSM, 3x sailor of quarter only. both my parents died when I was deployed, wasn't allowed to go home for one of them. My 13 year old has significant health problems and feels neglect from his only parent being gone most his life while his successful WO father wants nothing to do with him and never met him nor talk to him. It upsets me to see year after year  unexperienced and/or terrible/mean people make chief. I am not perfect, but this definitely not a fair process. I have a theory that either I pissed off someone with power or only the cool kids and someone whos a spouse of a cool E7 and above get to advance, because you cannot honestly say that someone with less than 7 years who never PCS to a ship and doesn't have 3M quals is better qualified to be a chief.

I think for me my lesson learned is that I truly underestimated not having documented FCPOA involvement.  I have one E-6 eval from about 6 years ago that has a bullet for FCPOA/CPO365 (when that was a thing).  I've followed as much of my LaDR as I can so aside from not having a breakout eval, I feel that might be the only other thing holding me back.  Here's hoping that being a cabinet member this year is the difference between an S and another N.
