As we hit the road to begin our recruiting season, we will provide specifics on many of the articles listed in this addition. Every LDO and CWO must realize that your OCM team continues the work of creating and maintaining sustainable designators. In many cases creating a sustainable LDO designator does not leave enough work to maintain a sustainable CWO counterpart. An example of this is the phasing out of the Security CWO to support the increased demand for more senior Security LDOs. On the flip side, the Oceanography LDOs will be phased out as the technical demand for Oceanography CWOs is where the current demand signal is leading us. In all cases, my office will maintain career progression opportunities through funding billets necessary to maintain promotions or through lateral transfer into designators that can provide for continued career progression.
