I just got back from submitting an app at the Houston REC. Fortunately I had made an appointment online and I was seen at the appointed time but the others that were there were not so fortunate. The Officer in Charge came out to tell us be patient as he only had 1 clerk to help the Mariners and that they were accepting applications via email as of last week.
