From the Detailer:
Please take a minute to look around as there are several important links on this page to save you time!
Up for orders? Start HERE!
Orders negotiation should begin via the file on the right named "VAW Detailer Input sheet APR 17", and move to email or phone about 9 months from your PRD , confirm your Not Earlier Than (NET), Not Later Than (NLT) date with your XO and CO so all potential billets can be considered. Any PRD extension earlier than 1 month or greater than 3 months from your original PRD will require an official PRD extension request (See below). Please fill out your respective section of the excel sheet, and ensure I am aware of any extension plan.

Where and when will I see the Bubba list?
The Bubba list is generated every December after the Zone Calculation Form comes out. The Placement officer and Detailer will then send the list to your commanding officer, the purpose of this is to be sure you are having a conversation with your front office about your timing and career implications!
When will I get promoted?
Congratulations on your promotion! In order to find out when you are predicted to promote you will see a number next to your name in the promotion message (typically released in message traffic in September):
