The San Diego National Naval Officer Association Chapter streamed the 2020 Enlisted to Officer Brief Thursday, June 18th at 1300 PDT via Instagram Live. About 400 Sailors registered to attend, 300 viewed and more than 30 Naval Officers gave their time to support. The discussion included the eligibility for General and Medical commissioning programs and updated information applicants should know when applying-- as well as advice from CAPT Dewon Chaney, Commodore, Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Wing (COMVRMWING), our Senior Advisor who touched on the importance of Senior Letters of Recommendations and CO Endorsements.
Naval Officers who have commissioned through LDO/CWO, OCS, Naval Academy, DCO, STA-21, MECP, MSC-IPP, HSCP/HPSP, and NCP led breakout sessions via Microsoft Teams and Zoom video groups sharing their lessons learned, crucial advice, and answered a variety of questions from Sailors .
The conversations shifted over to community-based discussions to discuss career paths with Mustangs and Officers from almost every community filling essential roles in the San Diego area, and beyond (Our JAG rep, dialed in from Japan).
Sailors don't always have the opportunity to work directly with Naval Officers from smaller LDO/CWO communities and restricted line like JAG, HR, PAO, Aerospace, METOC etc., so Wardroom members looked forward to dedicating a couple hours to help better prepare Sailors apply and gain a commission.
If you or one of your Sailors are looking for mentorship, email us at or dial into our Professional Development meetings every 3rd Thursday of the month at 1700.
