New Surface Forces Instruction Restricts Who Can Earn a SWO Pin


Recommended Posts

The Navy is tightening up who can be qualified as a surface warfare officer and reserving time on the bridge for officers who are on a path to command warships, the commander of Naval Surface Force told USNI News this week.

Faced with a limited amount of bridge time for new surface officers, Vice Adm. Richard Brown issued an extensive set of new instructions with the restrictions that would keep limited duty officers, chief warrant officers and senior enlisted from obtaining an officer of the deck qualification and a SWO pin, he told USNI News this week. https://news.usni.org/2018/07/26/new-surface-forces-instruction-restricts-can-earn-swo-pin
