Assignment Officer's Hot Word:
Updated 11 APR 2014
Assignment Year (AY) 2014 is now behind us, all orders have been issued. I realize that moving is difficult; however, rotating is necessary to develop the experience and background required to perform the Coast Guard's wide-ranging duties.
If you are rotating in AY14 I suggest you look at your next assignment with a positive attitude and continue to receive the career enhancement and diversity necessary for future advancement. Keep in mind career enhancement, diversity and advancement potential of each member is paramount in the assignment decision.
I strongly encourage all of you to increase your rating knowledge starting by reading your Storekeeper Rating Force Notes and passing down the knowledge to other SKs. Stay informed and be proactive. Members who are approaching their rotation date or are above the cut for promotion should be reviewing COMDTINST M1000.8. Make it a practice to read every Enlisted Personnel Management Assignment SITREP. A lot of time and effort goes into the messages with the goal being to keep the enlisted workforce informed. To find these messages, be sure to select the “bulletins” button on the Message Board. Look for ALCGENL and ALCGPSC.
If you have any questions concerning your assignment, please have your Command Representative contact me at anytime. For general assignment information, please refer to the EPM-2 homepage http://www.uscg.mil/psc/epm/EPM2default.asp or https://cgportal2.uscg.mil/units/psc/psc-epm/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx?BaseType=1.
Thank you again for your support,
Best of luck to all,
