HOW AND WHEN TO CONTACT YOUR DETAILER
Please feel free to call or e-mail me anytime to discuss career progression questions. You can find my contact information above.
To discuss orders, those currently in an overseas tour should contact me within 10 months of your PRD. All others should contact me within 8 months of your PRD. Our goal is to identify a specific billet that meets your needs and get your orders released 4-6 months prior to your transfer date.
TWO OPERATIONAL TOURS
A crucial career milestone before you zone for LCDR. These two tours can include any combination of operational tours i.e. Department Head/DIVO, DIVO/Department Head, or DIVO/DIVO.
*** OP will not wave the 2nd Operational tour requirement. ***
As most of you know, a masters degree is a critical milestone for promotion to CDR. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to obtain your advanced degree through one of the many programs offered.
Junior Service College is an excellent way to both obtain your Master’s degree, and enter the joint/operational logistics arena. The Service College program prepares naval officers for joint assignments and greater responsibilities through joint professional military education. Assignment is based on Junior Service College selection, quota availability, career needs and individual desires.
Supply Corps officers seeking post graduate education are eligible to participate in several Master in Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Science (MS) programs offered through the Naval Postgraduate School. The MBA program curriculums 815, 819, 837, and 870. The MS degree is in the 361 curriculum. Officers will complete Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I on site while enrolled. For additional information on the curriculum options please refer to the NPS website and the "It's Your Education" playbook.

CAREER GUIDANCE 101
IT'S YOUR CAREER. I strongly recommend each officer read "IT'S YOUR CAREER" when formulating detailing plans and your career progression. This is an excellent resource covering all the important topics, milestones and career hurdles such as Internships, Subspecialties, Post Graduate education, Joint Qualifications, etc. Review "IT'S YOUR CAREER" online here.
