I just got word from my processor that my package has been submitted. In her words: “Now it is just a matter of time and other people in control.” I believe January boards are sometime in the middle of the month.
So we wait, and keep our fingers crossed.
After my package is reviewed I will either be denied or professionally recommended. If I am denied, I will resubmit my package again. If I am pro-rec’d my single scope background investigation (SSBI) will commence. As long as that goes well and the Navy still wants me after that, I will get a final select. Which then I will sign the papers and swear in. Not all too many more steps!
