Agree. Funny thing is, TAO isn't even a pre-req for a SWO pin.

The Metoc Officers on my ship were all allowed to qualify OOD. But none were authorized to earn their SWO pin, similar to Intel. Didn't see any stick around for TAO but there may be some. I think part of this pre-req concept is to ensure the IDC pin isn't meaningless. Too bad OOD and TAO have nothin...

Grandfathering is only a minor issue in this process. Indeed, the issues involving the IDC pin truly are immense. From its origins as an Intel pin, the inclusion of four communities, each with unique ideas of what the qualification should include, make the development of an IDC pin complex. For exam...

Quibling over who should be grandfathered is further evidence that a pin is more of a pain in the rear than it is worth. Again, pin isn't worth enough to justify the amount of time and effort necessary to "earn" it, unless it is standardized accross IDC. Grandfathering is a necessary evil to get th...

Bottom line is: Stop trying to get out of work by pretending you know or understand more than you actually do, it will not serve you well in the future. You have a point, but then there is reality. How many CDR's do you have at your command? There are none at mine. Other commands are typically limi...

In a round-a-bout way I guess I'm suggesting that all 1610 qualified officers get grandfathered in. Not doing so, or only grandfathering in O-4's or above, will create some additional problems for most commands. I'm trying to think about what the big NIOC's will have to deal with as the focus of al...

I can't speak to other commands, but at mine it appears that most newly qualified O-1 and O-2 1610 officers have a much broader and, in some cases, deeper pool of knowledge concerning the IW community than many of the O-2 and O-3 officers who found themselves pushed through under other means prior ...

Am currently drafting the recommended grandfather clause for IWO. Please share your thoughts... Let's start the conversation with 161X and BI1 and all 644X/744X who were grandfathered on the IWO PQS and see where this thread takes us... V/R Sean Grandfathering will certainly impact the ability of t...

I will probably not make it past LCDR due to age, if there is still an age guidance in the MILSPERMAN. I have a question in regards to time from LT to LCDR what is the difference in time between LDO and 1610 realistically. It all depends on the zones. Time in service requirements are technically th...

If you want to make it past LCDR, lateral transfer to 1610.

If you want to advance to LCDR sooner, lateral transfer to 1610.
