Preparation is the Key!

Towards the end of A school, Mass Communication Specialist sailors receive verbal orders from the MC detailer through the detachment Leading Chief Petty Officer, currently Chief Jason Carter. Those sailors must prepare for their next duty station by out processing from medical, dental, the detachment and Defense Information School. Sailors must also have a point of contact from their next duty station called a sponsor who'll share what they'll need to bring as well as any other insight into the upcoming transition. SN Hensley took a practical approach and has been expecting to receive orders to a ship. In preparing for ship life, Hensley has been converting his DVD's to his external hard drive while showing various marathons of Supernatural and Chuck. Being self proclaimed "movie enthusiast" Hensley wants to make his adventure with the Navy less cluttered with discs and full of readily available movies and series at his hands.

Supernatural is playing on the computer monitor while Hensley has the DVDs converted to his external hard drive.

SN Hensley explains to SN Hwang how the files are burned and converted through the lap top and on to the external hard drive.

SN Hwang is among many to enjoy the side benefits of Hensley's endeavor.

The funny thing is that Hensley received orders to Guam.

  1. I came upon your shared blog from the "I am your eyes" fan page on Facebook, and as I have been scouring the internet, attempting to find as much as possible about the rating of MC, it was refreshing to see a glimpse into the life of an MC in a "A" school.

    I have been doing freelance web/interactive digital multimedia/graphical design for years now (I am 23 now, and have some college credits in digital multimedia) and am very interested in joining the Navy and exploring this career. How hard is it to gain admittance into this job? I have no fear of ASVAB scores, but are there other stringent requirements that are needed for this position? Is there a demand right now for this position? Also, I learned from reading on a few forums that advancement in this field is something you really shouldn't count on ... what are your feelings on this?

    I would really appreciate hearing back from you, but in the event that I don't, I wanted to say thank you again for your great coverage and portrayal.
