If you mentored a Sailor that was not selected let’s provide some solid feedback and get them back in the game for this year. In a recent trip to Guam/Hawaii, I was refreshed to see a lot of E-5’s at our recruiting briefs. It’s not too early to start preparing our reliefs. Unfortunately, many of them did not have active mentors which got resolved before we left both islands. PLEASE… get the word out that spouses are encouraged to attend either the recruiting or Community Retention/Career Management briefs. We had several spouses attend in Hawaii and I’m absolutely positive it was beneficial to their families. If POC’s in geographical areas desire a spouse brief after normal work hours let us know. We will accommodate.
