    Ok, so i'm hearing that there is a Strike list just as there is an A-School list. I'm also hearing that the strike list is currently closed and you can not stike for BM. Anybody know if there is truth to this? Just curious because i was intending on striking BM when i get to my first unit. Thank you for your help guys stay safe!

    there is a striker list called the "supplemental list". You can only view it on a CG workstation. Once you complete your striking pqs, pass the eoct, pass the DWO, and pass the e4 EPME you can add to the list. I can check the list but last I checked it was a 1 to 1 1/2 year wait to advance to BM3.
    Give or take 6 months-1 year for striking, another 1-1 1/2 years for the supplemental list, you might as well just add to the BM list.

    As far as the status of the striker program, not sure. I had heard that you have to get the BM RFMC to allow you to strike, but that's just rumors and not real facts.

    i'll look into it tomorrow... but jeepin there is no easy way to E4 unless you go boot to A. There also isn't anything wrong with it taking a while to become an E4. Being an E4 is that start of the leadership role. It's easier for an E2 or E3 to come to the E4 rather than a E6. Especially as a BM3, you'll be in charge of nonrates and held responsible to your BM1. When you have to wait and see the fleet you'll know for sure that you earned your crows and becoming an E4 will mean a lot more.

    Thank you guys very much! And E i totally i agree with you, of course I am taking a pay cut to join and so part of me does want to make rate so i can get a bit more money. But i whole heartly agree the leadership needs to be earned and that is one of the reasons that the rate appeals to me.
