Odds and Ends

The O4 selection results came out yesterday. I'm number 200 on the list. Don't know when that means that I'll actually pin it on, but it's good to see my name on that message.

We got a response back from Headquarters about the additional subsistence allowance request for the enlisted crew (post from 24 Aug 09). It was a conditional "yes." The payments start on 1 Jun (I asked for 1 Apr), and they're going to change the manual so that it specifically addresses that this allowance does not apply to drydocks. I guess they're gonna close that loophole.

The shipyard is actually working three shifts to get the shaft fixed. Maybe we'll be back in the water by Monday.
