I got an LOA and have a service connected nomination. Does it matter where I get my nomination source from with an LOA? Thanks in advance for the help!
Matters not. SA can NOT issue appointment without a nomination; it is a formality to be fulfilled and a box to be checked. With a LOA all you should need is DoDMERB and any nom from any source.

Having said that SAs may prefer to wait until all noms are issued Feb 1 in order to juggle their preferred [WCS] candidates vs principal nominees, NWL, recruited athletes, etc etc. vs available nominations.

But end of the day a nom is a nom is a nom.
