Two DMS attitude surveys will be conducted on behalf of DMSD over the next 6-7 months. The first will be a survey of 20% of all DMS personnel (presumably a representative cross section of all CEGs and ranks). More importantly however, the second survey will be of 100% of all DMS personnel and will be conducted in the New Year. This is your chance to get your message across to the great and the good of the DMS. Spread the word, alert everyone you know in the DMS that they should expect to receive a questionnnaire in the New Year. If you don't receive one and others do, tell your CO. Ensure that he or she make arrangements for you to receive one. Use the opportunity wisely, be truthful and measured and resist the temptation to rant. If you want to get your message across ranting will not help, it will merely put the backs up of those that can do something about the way the DMS functions. If I can confirm the date that the questionnaires will be published I'll post it here.
