There should still be someone delegated to sign off by direction. Deputy/logs? Thatíd be like everyone taking leave and not having an SMC around.

If not, Iím sure theyíll shuffle poo poo around and throw their hands up at the last minute, call PSC/EPM if needed and get it resolved. Wouldnít be the first time poo poo fell through the cracks.

I did talk to my command (yesterday) and they asked me if they needed to do anything. I said no, because i was going to the YNs at a later time that day (also yesterday). Basically only the YN2 and YN3 where on the admin building and all they could do for me was to pre-sign some admin page 7 things that need to be routed. According to them the paperwork should be done on next Monday at the earliest and next Wednesday at the latest.

My command know and I did tell them i am being diplomatically patient, but extremely frustrated.

Edit: Its straight up being a bad month for me, but at least i lost 13 pounds so far

The CG has vastly underestimated the power of social media to broadcast problems and has been turning a blind eye to toxic commands for decades. Honestly I'm surprised this hasn't happened earlier.

Yeah, itís a pretty crazy time when someone can just tag MCPOCG and possibly get awareness that way. Though Iím guessing some PA or assistant is managing all those accounts.

Replying to a meme with a meme.

Shamelessly stolen from a subreddit:

A member posted a meme in a comment using Trump. Someone comments on that talking about "supporting your commander and chief, etc." and @'s public affairs, MCPOG, members command etc. They have a back and forth about it. Members command finds out, tells member to remove comments and back and forth. Member does. Member is still told he is getting kicked out for it, at first they will face a board decision, but members command pulls strings at EPM and gets it changed and they are getting booted and will not face a board. CG Memes finds out, post a bunch of memes about toxic commands and gathers stories from people.

Guess the dudes an SK2 with a bunch of years.

Holy moly has something changed about the discharge process where they can just rando do an unsuitability discharge or something?

That really sucks, but the only surprising thing is that it took this long for someone to publicly get kicked out over memes.
