Making Recruiting Great Again
You guys should check SailorBob. They're grilling the CO and XO hard. I personally know the XO who got fired and they're saying he didn't have enough engineering experience to be an XO.

All while being screened and detailed to an XO/Afloat command.

Also, I believe a CVN XO tour is 2 years while a CO is roughly 3 (give or take) so there has to be some sort of filtering process along the way, whether the XO isn't screened or simply doesn't want to command a CVN.

It varies, I had several that were just under 2 and several that were close to 3, some of the not great ones left close to 2 and retired, some of the ones close to 3 left and put on a star.

Did I miss a step?

so what I understand is that what we were seeing was just something that was tentative, kind of like penciled in?
It's a bit more than tentative. I've always understood a slate to be Big Navy's intent to send an individual to a specific, board-selected job. IMO it resides somewhere between verbals and written orders. Obviously, sometimes shit happens with people at all levels. The slate isn't a suicide pact.

Ok, so I am pretty sure we are talking about the same thing just different terminology, I know things change I guess where I was at things just went according to plan

So explain how we would have the name of the PCO 18-24 months before they were supposed to arrive?

- The slating has for the COs has to consider a number of factors to include refresher training at Naval Reactors, Naval Reactors directed tour lengths for CVN COs, very specific turnover requirements, 30 year statutory retirement requirements, Flag board timeline for the member, and the member may be locked into joint billet (22months +1 day minimum). This is where you can get a 18-24 month name of a PCO.

FTA: "Lt. Col. Jennifer Grieves was relieved of command of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 464 by Maj. Gen. Matthew Glavy, commander of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, a II MEF news release says.

“Glavy based his decision on issues stemming from an off-duty incident that was not properly reported,” the news release says. “The unreported incident was not related to squadron operations
