Well that's a random thread title.

So a few options.

-Deal with another 11 years of complete bullshit with increasing hours every tour, shuffling around every 3-4 years, hopefully continue to get promoted along the way. With that, I get decent medical coverage for the wife and future kids, pretty awesome pay, and a retirement.

-get out and get a sweet GS job doing something related to my field. However, that's all wrapped up with mostly retired warrants and poo poo and more than likely I'd have to move back to the Gulf, so a big 'gently caress that'. Pros being I'm done moving around, make decent cash, and can still put into a retirement but I won't see it immediately.

-get out and do something else completely. Cons being I have no loving clue what I would do and I have a family to support. GI Bill isn't going to help that enough.

I think I seriously talked one of my friends out of joining the dark side yesterday. Really, unless you're doing it for the money, I see no viable reason to deal with this poo poo. The funny part is at my last unit most everyone liked being an officer. At this unit it seems completely different, at least at the O-3 and below level. Lots of miserable dudes. I think that might have to do with the fact that at the prior unit we were a lot more operationally busy, and at this one there's not enough operations to keep busy, so there's just lots of tasking and visits to keep us busy.

My family thinks I'm loving crazy for even considering to get out, simply due to medical/retirement options. "It's only 11 more years."

On the positive side, promotion message should come out this month. woop woop.

That sucks man....at least your not a dumb enlisted like me. Personally I'd say gently caress it and bail, the amount the poo poo on prior enlisted guys when it comes to advancement is criminal.

Look at skiny here. Displacement machine says im at 11% coast guard says 17% max alowable is 208 im 256. So science says im in pretty drat good shape and the guard says im getting there. Max allowable is stupid tape everyone or get a physical fitness test. I havent made weight since the old adjustable max alowable days when I could weigh 290. That and I watch a fat gently caress SK1 get taped wearing what was obviously a sliming device. Bitch should have to get taped across the navel like the guys gently caress her being embarrassed. Should have to meet male bodyfat standards to. We would have a lot less pizza the huts walking around in admin buildings.

I also liked being ordered by a Chief- "Hey, so we need you guys to be there on Monday to fill the coolers with ice and provide drinks. Thanks"

Sure, don't bother throwing in a loving Sir or please or anything like that. I forgot I completely work for you and this whole military rank thing is just gone by the wayside. I'll remember that the next time you boss around a non-rate like they're a piece of trash that deserves zero respect.

We're so loving Navy and we don't even know it-isn't that what they do with Navy365 or whatever the gently caress they call it?

edit: Oh, and now doing your PCS travel claim through TPAX is going to be a thing...because really, the YN's had one loving job after they disposed of all their other duties, so they decided to stop doing the one travel claim they had to do, so now it will be on you. I guess they do weigh-ins and bitch about that 2 months out of the year.

Yeah trying to get qualls done before I go going to try and make MKC while over there and then start on a W package.

I honestly have no clue...you pulled it up using that new site right? Joint transcript request or something?

My uneducated guess would be that your electives will be fulfilled and not much else.

I would assume it depends on the school. My guess is that AMU or Excelsior would waive a ton of classes to get you to waste your money there, where if you submitted your transcript to Harvard they would laugh. That's a complete shot in the dark though.

Are you still going overseas to that exchange program?

Nah man, the canceled my orders due to a failed overseas medical screening. The doc was worried about a back injury I got about five years ago. Then she promptly signed off on overseas orders to MAT Ketchikan which requires the same medical check. The docs a horrible piece of poo poo that does what she wants regardless of weather or not it makes sense or fucks with peoples lives. Same doc told me my shoulder injury was inoperable and I was lucky I wasn't getting med boarded, got a second opinion from a local doc and he said that type of injury has been correctable for over 20 years, that I didn't even have the injury she said I had, and If I did have the injury I wouldn't be able to move my arm for poo poo. Guy game me a cortisone shot and some physical therapy and now I'm doing great. gently caress this doc.

So while it does say that the CO's determination is required, I'm going to say that in my opinion it doesn't rise to the level of individuals needing to be designated specifically in writing. As an example, to meet the requirement of the CO having determined, a note, local instruction, or e-mail (it counts) saying, "These positions in the [whatever] Division have a mission requirement to interface with the public sector, and shall be authorized to locally produce business cards."

There may be further guidance in the HSAR, SAP Handbook, and other places, but typically they all mirror the same thing. Keep in mind, most SKs, including F&S warrants have no actual background or experience in budget execution beyond the actual procurement actions. They tend to make poo poo up based on hearsay or policies that haven't been updated (or worse, cancelled) or superseded. If you confront them on this, they'll try to weasel around it or worse stonewall based on being the last line in the sand. In that case, take it up to the district budget officer, or if you're under a different sponsoring agency, take it to the area or HQ level.

Coast Guard poo poo isn't really my wheelhouse anymore, but Budget Execution sure as gently caress is, and 99% of people in the SK rating have no loving clue how appropriated funding works / is designed to work. They're mostly just button-pushers.

poo poo I don't even know you and your already my favorite SK type.
