Notes from the Detailer

  • My motto: If you don’t know, research it.  If you can’t figure it out, ask.  It’s your career; you should be the one driving.
  • Ensure you’re familiar with the changes to detailing practices outlined in NAVADMIN 231/17.  All Sailors will follow their Sea Shore rotation, which you can find in NAVADMIN 395/02.  If you’re a conversion in, your first tour will be at a Type II command.  The only way that won’t happen is if there are no sea billets available. 

  • The option to apply for a billet is yours.  If you submit no applications the choice will be made for you.  And, even though you may not get selected for a billet you apply for, at least you made an effort to shape the course of your career.  I am available and willing to communicate through phone or via email.  You do not have to be in your window to reach out, feel free to contact me anytime.

  • Shore opportunities continue to be a struggle.  When searching for billets utilize the 9850 search option, if you can find no shore billets in your rate.  I will also consider releasing you to a shore special program on a case by case basis.
