What Jim said is true, and I've been using some of your classes to supplement my SMCR retirement. I did not know that BGOs got retirement points. It was something I was thinking about doing when I retired, but I might start doing it now!Crap. This is turning into my own blog. Is nobody else here doing the absolute minimum to get a reserve retirement? It's not really correspondence courses, but anybody looking at this thread should think about becoming a Naval Academy Blue & Gold officer to supplement his points too. It's also unpaid, but the schedule is really flexible, you're the one calling the shots, and it's fun meeting the kids who are interested in a career in the Navy.
I've been interested in being a BGO for a while. Now that I found out I'm eligible to get retirement points - I got off my ass and emailed the Area Coordinator. While researching, USNAINST 1532.46C details reservists and retirement points, it is a one-stop shop, including procedures for getting points, lists of references, and includes all the applicable enclosures. Hope it helps.Keep posting. I've got a couple of guys looking to bail due to RMP and the info is helpful.
Do you have any references that say you can do the B&G and funeral stuff? Obviously you can, but if I can point them at the instruction, it's good info to have.
