I Received My Assignment!

I received my assignment notification on 9 July!  The notification came by email from an individual from AFPC and was addressed to my MPS (FSS/FSMPD).  I along with Rose and a handful of other personnel were Cc'd.  I should note NO-ONE from my chain of command was notified so if my inbox was full or if I missed the email somehow I would never have known.

Here is the timeline from my other post with my assignment notification added.  At the end of the day I received my assignment notification exactly one month after I received my class letter.  

A note on the PPCs (see the bottom of this post).  I think PPC stands for Personnel Processing Codes.  Every assignment is going to have different codes and when I looked up mine I realized they are not in the assignments AFI.  Search PPC in MyPers and a table will pop up with everyone you want to know.

Timeline:
Here is the sanitized version of the notification email for those who may care:

OTS Selectee: LAST, FIRST
Simply pass this info along to the MPF for processing manual orders.

For the MPF:

Please use this message to process PCS-to-TDY orders on the subject member.
For instructions on how to complete/process a manual order, please refer to the Orders Processing PSD Guide.

The Assignment information will not be updated in MILPDS. Do not delay processing pending MILPDS update. This is the ONLY assignment notification you will receive. Normal assignment notification procedures identified in AFI 36-2102 and AFI 36-2110 apply.

LAST, FIRST is currently accepted to OTS and serviced by your MPS. The MPS is responsible for providing PCS orders with TDY enroute to OTS.

  If the MPS needs assistance processing the manual order, contact XXXXX

LAST, FIRST will attend OTS TDY Enroute. The Assignment information will not be updated in MILPDS; therefore, there will not be an assignment rip generated in MILPDS.  Do not delay processing pending MILPDS update. This is the ONLY assignment notification you will receive. Normal assignment notification procedures identified in AFI 36-2102 and AFI 36-2110 apply. AFI 36-2013, Officer Training School (OTS) and Enlisted Commissioning Programs (ECP) are the governing instruction for initiating procedures on selected commissioning applicants. 

LAST, FIRST must report to Maxwell AFB AL on XXOCT2015 for OTS Class 16-02 starts XXOCT2015, graduates XXDEC2015.  The arrival of trainees to Total Force Indoctrination Training Course (TFIT-001) after duty hours on arrival day has complicated and extended in-processing into the program. In order to streamline in-processing, OTS is requesting all students arrive during the duty day (0800 - 1600 local time), early arrivals are not authorized.

Fund citation ETCA, Air University, TDY Fund Citations.  Review AFI 36-2013 and XXXX

REPEAT!!
