This is directed at all of my Reserve Component Chief Petty Officer shipmates:
“Do you want to take COMMAND? Can you be entrusted to stand tall under pressure? If you are a Chief then the answer must be a resounding “Aye, Aye!” Would you like to drill/serve your country past the maximum 30 years of TIS allowed for enlisted personnel? Do you have what it takes to wear "eagles" on your collar or be a CWO5? Would you like to increase your retirement pay by 50% or even 100%?
If you are an E-7 through E-9 with the desire to reach for one of the most demanding and satisfying positions in the Navy, the Limited Duty Officer or Chief Warrant Officer Commissioning Program may be for you.
The RC LDO/CWO program is actively seeking candidates with the “right stuff”. The RC CWO program is in particular need of support from the CPO mess. We are approximately 50% manned in our RC CWO inventory and we are losing folks almost as fast as we are “making” them. The RC LDO situation is a bit better, but not by much. So the fleet has an incentive to get as many highly qualified candidates into those billets as possible.
If you are a Reserve Component Chief Petty Officer and are interested in the RC LDO/CWO program, then now is the time to take the next step.
The following designator/career fields are OPEN:
623X (LDO SUB REPAIR)
626X (LDO SUB ORDNANCE)
628X (LDO SUB ELEX)
629X (LDO SUB COMMS)
633X (LDO AV MAINT)
641X (LDO ADMIN)
642X (LDO INFO PRO)
645X (LDO INTEL)
649X (LDO SECURITY)
653X (LDO CEC)
711X (SURF DECK CWO)
712X (SURF OPS CWO)
713X (SURF REP CWO)
715X (SEAL CWO)
716X (SURF ORD CWO)
717X (SWCC CWO)
742X (INFO TECH CWO)
744X (INFO WARFARE CWO)
745X (INTEL CWO)
Any interested applicants should take a look at the attached program flyer for more information. Anyone that does NOT already have an RC LDO/CWO mentor to assist with application preparation and the interview appraisal process should immediately contact our Recruiting Action Officer for assistance: CWO2 Richard Townsend: email@example.com
Applications are due NLT 01OCT2015, so time is running short. The fleet needs you now. I am "living proof" of what the program offers. It worked for me and it can work for you too. Please pass the word.
