The point remains that something can be (and often is) stupid regardless of which political tribe the offender belongs to. It's that hard part of life where more than one thing at a time can be true. But cool story. I hope you feel better.This thread is in the war zone. My point is that this shit has been going on for quite a while.
Get the fuck over yourself.
I don't know the internal workings, but in the 90s when at NAVEUR in London, we had no real Reserve Masters. Had a mob billet within NAVEUR and a drill billet on tje active staff. I was the unit Ops O and a, no shit, Convoy Commander as a mob billet. But we all drilled on the active staff. I was an asst air officer in N31. No reserve BS at all. No paperwork, no funky training. We had an AC LT and YN2 in Admin whose collateral duty was to coordinate our drills and orders. Very simple. Why not that?♪♫ "Beautiful Dreamer . . ." ♪♫
No ENS ever commissioned is going to fix systematic NOSC dysfunction. That's at least an O-6 if not flag job at this point, sadly. If I were CNR, I would seriously consider burning the NOSC construct to the ground, giving responsibility to the gaining AC COs, and farming the FTS billets out accordingly. Not a magic solution, and there are sure pitfalls. But if incentivized and rolled out properly, it might be an alternative to this monthly shitshow. I'd like to think that between the four of them, an AC and RC head shed could do a better job at the unit level than this ridiculousness. And if nothing else, the AC would have to learn to speak reservist, and how to use us productively.
Sadly, this is called "situation normal" in NOSC land.
Sure, but at least he took the oath. Disparaging the type and timing of service, and their commitment to the Nation is not a business we should be in, is it?Reince Priebus huh..? I suppose we’re now just turning officership into a cosplay check in the block for 47 year olds who, after 18 years of war, now feel the calling to serve...
