Discussion in 'Enlisted Commissioning Programs' started by jeeplovindad, Oct 11, 2008.
haha of what... April?!
May lol, after we check in to NSI, I will just take regular leave and check in on my own
My admin called the detailer. He said my orders were released this morning (Millington time). Admin told me they should be in NSIPS and message traffic sometime tonight (Italy time). They said orders appear in BOL last. So, hopefully all you guys/gals in the States will see your's via message traffic before COB.
Ok, I looked on BOL, checked message traffic and had the CCC check the ships Bupers account... and NADA!!!
I have to admit, Blizzy's post had my hopes up but sadly no word....
I feel like I've spent more time playing the waiting game this year alone than all the years I've been in the Navy combined...
At least its going to be worth it!
Darn, I was really hoping the orders would come today. Another day to frantically check BUPERS. Thankfully I was out to sea when STA-21 results were suppose to come out. No internet on submarines was kind of a blessing in that case.
You guys are right, I know how easy it is to complain but I am also aware of the amazing opportunity we have been presented. This has been rough but I agree that this is all sure as hell worth it.
PT at NSI?
Could somebody that's at NSI (and that has a few minutes give me a lowdown on what the PT is like there? I'm kinda freaking out about it (PT is not my thing) and would like to get a good feel of what I should be focusing on before I report in May. Is it everyday? Lots of running? How many miles? Is it pretty typical to most bootcamp/Navy training meaning 30-40 minutes stretching/pushups/sit ups and then a few mile run? Thanks for any insight.
Orders came in this morning about 3 hours ago via message traffic/command email. I just went to BOL to check and it is still not updated.
I just got off the phone with the Chief detailer for special programs, he said he has 20 orders pending approval and release and he has 25 more to write, he went on to say that he hopes to have all of them out by the end of the week.....cutting it too close for comfort......
Has anyone received their orders today?
Checked NSIPS and BOL... no luck :-/
BOL just updated to show the orders I received 12 hours ago via msg traffic.
Crossing my fingers for tomorrow...
FYI... it says this at the top of the orders: MEMBER HAS A MINIMUM OBLIGATION OF 6 YEARS PRIOR TO EXECUTION OF THESE ORDERS.
No big deal; we all know that... but in the big mass of words, about half way down it says this:
- OBLIGATED SERVICE TO MAY 2016 IS REQUIRED FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT WHICH MAY BE SATISFIED BY REENLISTMENT OR EXTENSION OF ENLISTMENT.
Just good to know.. for me it'll be a 2 month extension on top of my 6 year re-up.
Just a thought......This will be your last opportunity before being discharged to sell back any leave. My CO brought it up when I re-enlisted for the program and I sold back 30 days. The extra cash made my transition to student a lot easier. You will be surprised how much money you spend on supplies, clothes, up-front book fees, parking passes, etc... I have more than made back those 30 days in the 2 years in college. I'll probably commission, as well as many others, with close to 60 days on the books.
I plan on selling 30 and using 30 to get me back down to 0.
Service record migration
Is anyone else not going to have their service records due to the migration?
Shit... I didn't even consider that.
I will just because my command hasn't updated a lot of my stuff because my Admin is awesome like that.
Has anyone seen the message about applying for the STA-21 program for FY11.... my COC wants to see it before i can begin routing my stuff.
I don't think its been released yet, I didn't see it on the Sta 21 site or on NPC. I would keep an eye on the NPC navadmins section if you don't have access to message traffic.
Yeah, it wasn't released until the end of April last year...
Finally! BOL FTW!
