Thank you Dee and thank your DIL too please!!
Comment by Dee (CTI2 Spencer) on Monday

My DIL who just got out of the Navy as a CTI says:

"IF" he's given a choice and not automatically "fleeted" then she recommend CTR, CTM, or if scores were high enough on ASVAB, CTN.  

She also says he can retake the DLPT in six months and if the scores are there, he may be able to be a CTI.

It's also going to depend on the demand for his language.  The Navy has put a lot of $$ into training him so if he can end up passing with high enough scores, they will most likely put him back into the CTI rating.

Good luck to him!!

Help? My Sailor just graduated DLI but fell short on DLPT for rate of CTI. Facing reclass. Any suggestions for direction to take. Petty Officer wants to recommend to remain in cryptology. Any comments from all you veteran Navy Moms?
Comment by Dee (CTI2 Spencer) on March 20, 2015 at 12:32am

Clockard, you and I have been here together for a long time!  In one moment it seems like just yesterday and in another, it's been 10 years!  

My DIL is in the group that had a Navy job that doesn't translate to civilian life easily.  She's using her GI Bill and going back to school in two weeks to go down a totally different path.


Comment by clockard on March 19, 2015 at 7:58am

Dee, does it seem like the last 6 years have flown by? When my son was at boot camp in 2009, 2015 seemed very far away.

Good luck to your son in all his future endeavors!

Bookster, yes it is very sad that many veterans cannot find or keep a decent job, especially if their military job is not something with a civilian equivalent. Best of luck to your nephews.

Comment by Dee (CTI2 Spencer) on March 18, 2015 at 11:28pm

Thank you harpist mom!

Comment by harpist mom on March 18, 2015 at 12:02am

Dee, Wishing your son all the best as he embarks on the next step in his career!

Comment by Dee (CTI2 Spencer) on March 17, 2015 at 11:54pm

6 years ago today, my son left for BC in Great Lakes!  Yesterday, he returned to life as a civilian and now is a veteran of our US Navy.  I thank him for his service and for all the great people I have met on here along the journey.  I hope you and yours all have wonderful journeys of your own!

Thank you Craig for all of your help over the years!  Best wishes to all!

Comment by Bookster on March 17, 2015 at 10:49am

@clockard- that is pretty amazing.  How great that after being in the service they really can find jobs.  Two of my nephews served in the Army and just seem to be floating from job to job.  Breaks my heart how you can serve and then have nothing to show for it.  

Comment by harpist mom on March 17, 2015 at 10:37am

My son has been a CTM for over two years. His duty station has been at Pearl Harbor during that time. He is currently on an eight-month deployment on a destroyer which left Hawaii on February 14th.
