    LCDR B (or anyone else that reads this),

    First off, GREAT SITE! I just transferred from Training Air Wing 6 down in Pensacola, FL. Your website is part of the Wing’s passdown to SelRes and FTS folks as a “great place to go to get any reserve information”. So, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    Secondly, I am currently at the Navy War College, in Newport, RI and am writing a research paper on “Reserve Officer preparation for mobilization at the operational/JTF level”. If you or anyone reading this has ever mobilized at that level, or has any insight, please contact me at .

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    I was hoping to feature this stie on All Hands Magazine. It is truly an incredible resource. Do you see any reason why we couldn’t? I’d like to do an interview with you if possible? I would like to know what gave you the idea for this page and feature all of the great things that can be accessed through it.
    Please contact me.

    Also, I would love for All Hands Magazine, the Navy’s official online magazine, and, the navy’s official news source, be added to your list. You could also link to the Owners and Operator’s manual that we put out each year that has EVERYTHING a Sailor needs to know. Ranks/paycharts/rating badges/commands/platforms…the works.

    Ahoy Commander Beemsley,

    Your website is such a breath of fresh air for a nearly always tense and frustrating experience of one type or another. Thank you for making these processes smoother and progressing the mission Navy wide! All of the members of my unit use your site and the name Kelly Beemsley brings a smile of confidence upon their faces.

    As a Chief who remembers filling out paper travel claims, letting SATO handle travel, and YNs handle orders, you are right there by this old diver’s side. Carry on Commander! Bravo Zulu to your huge effort.

    Very respectfully,
    NDC (DSW/SW) Jeff Powers

    Your site has made thing so much easier to find and get to the information we all need. Thank you.

    An item has been brought to my attention, and I do not have good specifics to provide. Do you have, or can you post, directions for the transfer of MGI Bill to the Post-911 GI and the process for transferring those benefits to a spouse or children. Thank you in advance.

    CDR – Thank you for your outstanding website! I have been using it since your ENS days and am pretty sure its the only place where we can find links and information that provide real help in jumping through the crazy maze of online hoops the Navy requires. Hopefully some day the folks at the top will address the quagmire that the Navy websites have become. Until then we have you. Thanks!

    Thanks for the praise!
    As for your question on the POST-9/11 GI BILL, I created a new section:

    POST-9/11 GI BILL (Last Update: Monday, 13APR2015)
    •OPNAV Instruction 1780.4 was updated March 2 and consolidates policy detailed in NAVADMINs 187/09, 203/09, 354/09, and 235/11. Qualified active duty and Reserve Sailors may elect to transfer benefits to a spouse or children. The instruction includes the Transfer of Benefits (TEB) steps in order to create a simple checklist that Sailors can follow to ensure they successfully complete the process. (Google Backup Search)

    Hope this helps,
    Cheers from the road in San Diego!
