Well just over a month after they finally released the results of the FY17 promotion board, it’s time to get ready for this years board. MILPER message 18-021 was released on the 18th
Earlier this week, the FCC, “lead” by Ajit Pai voted to repeal its policy of Net Neutrality. The policy was put into place in Feb 2015 after the FCC (at the time under the Obama administration) made the decision to classify ISPs as a public utility under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. For a lot of people (myself included for a while), this doesn’t make a lot of sense what any of this means so let me try to take a few minutes to explain (at least my understanding of it).
First, let me say congrats the the 675 CW2(P), 375 CW3(P), and 70 CW4(P) that were announced today after a very long long long wait for the release of the list. As someone who was looked at this year, I can say personally that the wait has sucked although I have absolutely enjoyed all of the memes showing up on Facebook (we have got some very creative warrants out there with apparently to much free time on their hands).
So I know it’s a few days late (what can I say, I was getting ready for a turkey comma) but I wanted to take a minute to congratulate the Army’s newest cyber warrant officers (ya I’m still signal but I play cyber during the day). So with that being said congrats to:
Congrats to all of the NCOs who have been selected to join the ranks of the Signal Warrant Officer Corps.
I know I’m a little bit late getting this posted but here is the schedule for the first half of FY 18 warrant officer selection board. As I’ve written before a few times, it’s our job to find our replacements so make sure you take the time to talk to your NCOs that show promise and mentor them to come to the dark side.
Imagine this scenario…. “The first neutron passes the LD and engages enemy position. The enemy position is destroyed and the damage is extensive enough to cause an adjoining position to catch fire. When the ammunition in that adjoining position explodes it takes out another position…” Huh?
I was looking through Nixcraft on Facebook yesterday (if you haven’t been to it before, check it out) and came across the graph. As a warrant officer, we’re supposed to be experts in whatever field it is that we happen to be in. But what exactly does that mean?
Hello from the right coast. According to the date on my last post, it has been 304 days since I last posted although I thought it had actually been considerably longer. So what has been happening in the last 43 weeks and 3 days?
The quality of our training will determine our mission success. Shortcuts during training can have negative long-term effects on our mission readiness. This article is intended to pick up where The Lost Art of Training left off. If you haven’t read it yet, I would suggest you start there.
