    Bravo Zulu!
    I shared this site with my unit after receiving referral from NROWS help desk.

    Do you if there is a site that provides a member access to check status of security clearance?

    V/R

  12. admin

    LS2, This is the best answer I came up with concerning your security clearance question.
    —————————————————-
    After the submission of the application, how long is the process to find out about the results?

    The time needed to complete the application process depends on a number of factors, including whether a background investigation is needed prior to appointment and the type of investigation to be conducted. For national security positions, OPM is completing 90 percent of the initial security clearance investigations within an average of 40 days. To determine the status of your investigation, you may call 724-794-5612, extension 7000. For information on the status of your application, please contact the office where you applied.

    This info is amazing! I applied for Reserves back in May and was asked to submit OLD medical records (that could not be found) before app could be submitted. Submitted that a month ago and have heard nothing else other than I missed the cut-off and will be back in touch. How do you check your app? If you want to be considered for multiple MOSs how do you go about that?

    TC, Thanks! I believe you are asking about the Reserve Direct Commissioning (DIRCOM) Program. If so, the only person I know who can only help you is the recruiter. The recruiter control the entire process from the get go. Try and follow-up with the recruiter because a new Fiscal Year (FY) will start in October which will open up all the positions. As for multiple MOSs, I would stick to one MOS to show your commitment. Hope this helps,

    LCDR,

    As a Linux user, accessing DOD websites was extremely difficult, the Air Force has developed a Linux Kernel that allows acces to most DOD websites with CAC.

    Thanks so much for your efforts on this. I’m spreading the word to every Reservist I know. It would be helpful if you highlighted the links that get locked out every 30-60 days so that someone (me) could scroll through your page and click the highlighted links and know that they won’t be locked out when they actually need to do something on that particular page.

    Thanks and keep up the great work.

    This is an excellent site for “one stop shopping”, with the exception of info and links for LDO/CWOs.

    The retirement calculator does not incorporate the O1E or CWO pay scales or the fact they can go over 30 years. The FITREP/EVALUATION tracker does not track CWOs.

    Thank You for your dedication in keeping up with it.

    James, you are very welcome.
    As for the 60 day lock out question, I finally have a simple solution… ‘A Lock icon’.
    Hope this helps,
    Cheers from the road in NYC!

    Steven, thanks for the insight on the retirement calculator.
    I found one & linked it to my site (http://militarypay.defense.gov/retirement/calc/index.html) that will work for you.
    As for the FITREP/EVAL tracker that has CWO, do you know of one (A link or picture will work)?
    Cheers from the road in NYC!

    Sir,
    I am very impressed with your page. You’ve earned a spot on my website. Thank you for your time and dedication in informing Sailors of some of the most frequented sites and information geared towards Reserve and Active Duty. Bravo Zulu!
    Very Respectfully,
    NC1 Marta Martin

    For rescheduled drills in EDM, after you have been mustered and approved by unit approver, and after the NRA approval, make sure your NOSC releases your drills to DFAS or you will be waiting to get paid longer! I havn’t seen that last step listed on any literature for EDM. The NOSC RESPAY department is supposed to get email notification to release the drills to DFAS but if they arent keeping up on their email accounts, that can cause a HUGE delay in pay. Timeframes should be the same as the paper IDT forms.

    NC1 Martin, Thank you for the spot under ‘Navy Reserve’ on your NavyGirl.org website… Cheers from the road in NYC! Respectfully, LCDR B

    EDM:
    Thanks for the FYI.
    At this time, I have not used it enough to know how it works properly with the NRA/NOSC…
    Continuing to monitor this concern,
    Cheers from the road in NYC!
