State of Tracom, December 2011

Greetings Marines,

As you read this I'm sure that you, like us here at TRACOM, are preparing for the holidays. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season.

A few quick notes before we get to the rundown:

Currently, both the MO School and the ADC Office are experiencing some computer difficulties. The MO School is currently being backstopped by DCOTRACOM. ADC is running a bit behind, but is working around the problems to still get certificates out, albeit at a speed penalty. Please be patient with both. Both are expected to have problems corrected shortly after the first.

In the year since taking office, I have hired nine people to fill posts within the command, including creating 2 new posts. Generally, vacancies have lasted only the time required to allow the prescribed 30 day application period to expire.

Looking forward, TRACOM is moving towards complete replacement of all TRACOM manuals dated prior to 2010 and updates of 2010 manuals. We will be continuing toward improving our customer support response and effectiveness.

Though there have been some difficlties, I'm pleased overall with the performance of TRACOM and the Academy in providing service to our members. Again, please enjoy the holidays in both happily and safely. We look forward to continuing to serve you in the new year.
