Sir, the Coast Guard Reserve came to an almost complete stop! We cancelled training required for job certification maintenance; stopped members from reporting to advanced professional education schools; postponed semi annual personnel administrative updates and verifications; cancelled travel between units for command cadre members; deferred planning for future exercises, and a host of other things.
The one thing we didn't alter was the requirement for members competing for advancement to take the Service Wide Exam at the appointed time. They were simply told (and I one of those people), be there to take the SWE, or forfeit this year's opportunity at the promotional test. We'll pay you when and if we can.
