DD-214 in hand and I'm gonna party like it's 1998
Ahrem. Excuse me. “Feast or famine.” I was speaking more to the perspective of selling a 12304b MOB to a skeptical SELRES.Are you saying some mobilization billets are.... whaaaaaaaat?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!???!/!!?!??!?!?!11!!!??!??!!!!
If "they" did a study of all mobilizations, I dare to say they would find that numerous are not necessary and that the people requesting the Noble Eagle numbers are abusing the system and using mobilizations as a long-term staffing solution.In all seriousness, there are some incredibly cool MOBs out there. But if you really, really want a nonflying gig as base Air Ops in Djibouti, well, you do you.
Same for me. Thought I was S2. Guess not. They're gonna love my beard.Drama for comedic effect, only - but my letter stated "Grooming standards must be observed as directed by Navy Uniform Policy."
Funny thing is - I thought I was S2 already based on the original content of this thread. Guess I'm not.
They will provide words of correction. Yeah I have no idea how any issue like that would be addressed. The only punitive measure at hand for an administrative misstep seems to be downgrading of status - not much of a lever for most of us.What are they gonna do, kick you out?
Update to my own post. I called the IRR counselor a week or so ago asking when I'd receive orders, since the letter said I'd receive them by US mail. They said I'd get them via email (AMRDEC). Now we're 3 days out and I still haven't gotten them. I called to ask "if I don't receive orders, do you want me to show up anyway?" They took my name and after a few minutes said, "actually, Sir, it says you're S2. You don't have to attend." Riiiiight.For those of you who have attended these IRR muster funtimes events, when abouts did you get your orders? I'm 2.5 wks out and not seeing them.
