Electronic Technician Assignments
CWO Erik Peterson, Assignment Officer
Officer's Hot Word:
Updated 08 MAY 2013
The AY14 Early Afloat message has been released (ALCGENL 075/13). I want to clarify what I put out in the force notes regarding those who want to apply for afloat assignments. What I'm trying to minimize is back to back afloat assignments as well as excessive afloat assignments. I use the term excessive very loosely because we are a sea going service. However, if you have 10 years of sea time competing against someone with no sea time, if all else is equal, I need to afford the technician with no sea time to get what is required for advancement. I want to encourage EVERYONE who is tour complete in AY14 and wishes to compete for an afloat assignment to submit an e-resume, even if you have the required sea time for advancement. My goal is manage expectations in the fleet and let the priority 4's and 5's rest assured that I will help you get to a cutter. As always, contact me for any questions.
Career counseling has started. I stand ready to
answer my phone, as always, to provide advice on assignment related
questions. My phone number is 703-872-6604 and I can be emailed at
free to IM me as well. I may or may not be able to answer IM's, but I will
make every attempt.
All AY13 Orders have been issued. If you are tour complete and have not received orders, please contact me via your command designated representative to inquire. The AY14 Early Afloat shopping list will be released via message in the June/July timeframe. If you are on one of the AY14 cutters currently, tour complete in 2014, and desire an extension to AY15, please contact me immediately.
If you are tour complete in AY14 or AY15 and are currently double encumbered, I have the following positions available for an AY13 transfer. Please route the request through your chain of command and have them contact me with the request and endorse your early departure.
