I mean I looked for the ref one time on what OFP in the Navy meant?

They pointed me to a policy with a number and everything. I then asked where said policy was written as I wanted to have a read of it...

"Oh we haven't written or published it yet"

Me: "so it's complete made up? Got it!"

🤣🤣🤣
Typical.

Two years ago the pub that stated promotion requirements for reserve naval officers was rescinded without replacement.

All of a sudden, dozens of otherwise unqualified JOs were promoted, as they had magically achieved OFP.

Here's another one: the pub defining a naval C7 famil shoot was also simply deleted while still referenced by the pub that mandates them every 2 years.

They sent me to run a range as RSO. I asked about it, they just said "oh just do what we used to do".

Uhhhh no. We have a whole CF Operational Shooting Programme, why would the navy do differently on the basis of a pub that doesn't even exist anymore? So I just went ahead and used an existing PWT.

I belief that the naval C7 is still PWT1 unless a member of the boarding party.

The Navy is legit just making it up at this point. One of the reasons is due to them running out of sailors, none of that necessary corporate governance and administration is getting done because all of the positions have been reallocated to fill sea billets.

But when will we actually say out loud that we aren’t staffed to hit our missions- especially 2 years out ( at the rate we re going)

It’s like- our senior leaders across the board are so bankrupt that even if by some miracle one showed up and was honest- they’d just replace them immediately with one of the legion of gravy boat drinking, bagless, say “yes” for another rank waiting in the wings.

Like it’s a literal shell game with everyone talking out both sides of their mouthes.

3-5 years ago (at the working level)

At the BGH level, sometime between the Nerth of Smarch and never.
