more on ORSE boards

Rob posted an interesting response about training and orse boards to THIS post. great reading.
and as a bit of clarification to those that may not understand the big deal about getting an Excellent on an ORSE board: when the seawolf was graded as excellent, we were the first nuclear vessel (submarine or surface) in the pacific fleet to have received that grade in 18 months. they did not hand them out as freely as the air force hands out attendance to morning muster medals.

:) ORSE interviews to me feel like something out of the Spanish Inquisition. My first one as an EWS made me feel like I was a newly bar certified lawyer arguing a case before the US Supreme Court.

And ORSE grades/awards...heh...know what an Excellent on ORSE gets you for awards? A full year (give or take 3 months) until your next ORSE :) Oh, and the joy of having squadron/group in your knickers just as much as if you hosed it, since they want all the dirt on how you did well to pass on to the other boats :)
