As a reservist, do we have a detailer we can address questions to? Or is that only for active duty?
Charlie...didn't you just get selected?How do I determine who that is to speak to in San Diego?
I can't meet my OIC if I'm in the wrong region. I've moved from Texas to Utah and I was told that I needed to find out who the detailer for the San Diego area was to get me moved over there. I spoke with the detailer in Denver (nice guy) and he told me that I needed to at least speak to the guy in San Diego so that he knows I'm headed that way since I'm not on his books at all. That was the reason behind the question. I was also told that since I'm in the wrong region, time was of the essence to get it changed prior to DCOIC. Could be wrong but I'd rather be on the ball when the time comes rather than dragging in at the last minute if at all due to technicalities. But thanks for the advice.Charlie...didn't you just get selected?
Pump the brakes, man! :icon_tong All of that stuff will work itself out. You won't need orders or a new unit until at least one month after your INDOC drill weekend. By that time, you'll have met/been introduced to some of the officers in your NIRR...the OIC probably being one of them.
Someone with more experience can chime in, but you won't start getting paid until after you start drilling. You won't start drilling until you have been commissioned which may be after the new fiscal year starts, Oct. 1, 2019. Then after that, your OR should assist in finding a local unit and NOSC. Depending on your designator there is a regional DCO Officer who will reach out and touch base with you and put you in touch with someone from that unit. Your first drill may be at NOSC INDOC or maybe with your unit.
You'll wait for the commissioning documents (COMDOCS) to be generated at the NAVRESFOR level, which can take about 35-45 days. During this time, your OR may ask you to re-sign some docs, and sign some new ones as well.Then after that, your OR should assist in finding a local unit and NOSC.
