A Hearty Thanks to MCCareer.org Readers – CDR Schofer is Now CAPT Schofer and the Incoming Deputy Chief of the Medical Corps

Posted on Updated on

Starting a blog about how to promote to Captain is perhaps a little nerve racking until you’ve actually done it yourself. Today is that day!

Whew! I guess I no longer need to worry about being that guy who told everyone how to promote to Captain but couldn’t do it himself.

Also of note, this week I check-in to BUMED as the next Deputy Chief of the Medical Corps, which is a dream job of mine. Thanks to all the readers of this blog who definitely contributed to this unexpected turn in my career.

    Congrats, Joel! The blog has always been a reliable and current source of info. Well-deserved selection to Deputy Chief.

    I hope you can bring the same reliable and current service without the disclaimer!

    Looking forward to some official word that has been “approved, endorsed, or authorized by the Department of the Navy or some other component of the Department of Defense.”

    Ready to serve.

    Very Respectfully,

    Congratulations, Joel! I know that you will continue to help numerous officers with their careers. Your career advice and training reaches beyond the Medical Corps. I regularly refer Medical Corps and Chaplain Corps officers to your blog. Your hard work is helping more people than you realize. Thank you.
