Mainly a two part question.
Trying to stay relevant in my current branch, but still end goal of jumping over to the USCG.
1. If selected for the DCA program as an alternate, and subsequently can’t take it in the next few months, would it be held against you on the next board if you turned down the position?
2. Is it possible to accept the position but defer to later in the FY? Ex. Instead of commissioning in December of ‘21, commission in June of ‘22, both in FY 22.
I understand this is a rather strange question overall, please answer questions instead of criticisms or judgments.
