State of TRACOM – October 2012

Hello everyone!

Our illustrious leader is taking some time off, and I have been chosen
to update everyone on the happenings in TRACOM this month.

The past month has seen the arrival of several new faces here at TRACOM,
as we welcomed the following people into the following positions:

Ed Wandall of 7BDE is the new Aerospace Director
Aaron Clark of 6BDE is the new Infantry Director
Eric Schulman of 7BDE is the new Strategy and Tactics Director
Daniel Walker of 1BDE is the new Mecha Director
Philip Muller of 1BDE is the new Leadership Development Director
Mike McGowan of 12BDE has returned to helm the MOSC and MURP Programs
Julie Rickard of 12BDE is the new Professional Development Director, as
well as the Dean of the Marine Development College.

Please welcome all of these new faces, and help them feel at home.

Now, I have a quick word in regards to exam requests. The system that we
have in place for requesting exams is pretty darn good, and has gotten
better recently to an update on the school selection side of things, but
as everyone knows technology can be a pain in the tuchus sometimes. The
way things are supposed to work is that once you have clicked the button
to submit your request, an email is generated by the website that will
be sent to the director, and to you as the student. When things go
right, that email shows up in the appropriate inboxes within seconds,
but sometimes things go awry and that email may get delayed for several
If you submit a course request and don’t get that email right away,
please be patient and give it a while to show up. If it hasn’t shown up
in 12 hours or so, please contact the director directly at their SFMCA
address to see if they have received the request. Chances are they have
not received it either.
If you submit a course request, and get the email shortly after you make
the request, rest assured that everything has gone according to plan,
and the director has received your request and will be fulfilling it
within the guidelines set forth in the Policy and Procedures manual.

With that said, just let me remind you that all of the schools are open
for business, and are here to serve you.

We here at TRACOM have some exciting new stuff coming up in the next
several months, including new exams, updated manuals and more, so keep
your eyes peeled for what we have in store for you.

Until next time,
