I believe those other 2 were recent lat tranfers from 6440 to 1610.

The exception to this is CNO, which is a very specialized field and is by its nature mostly limited to shore assignments. I could see making CNO a seperate swim lane to maintain the depth of knowledge required, but holding these officers to the same standards (i.e. operational tours vs shore tours)...

All valid points. And like I said before, maybe this was inevitable. Maybe it is time for IW to have a pin to recognize who we are/what we do.

And no, I wouldn't have any issue taking off my SWO pin to wear ours. I am proud to be a Cryptologist, oops -- IW Officer, and would wear it with pride.

The Navy has always valued the officer community for its generalized abilities. Jack of all trades, master of none, right? I see the point regarding specialized skill sets, but to do that do we need to not only have 1 IWBC, but 5 different ones for the 5 different focus areas (just to bring the thr...

Not just DCS couriers, but Intel Officers assigned to Patrol Squadrons....who had no job on the plane!!!! That said, I have 4 Warfare Pins...2 x Enlisted, 2 x Officer. I am proud of all of them because I went out and did the work to earn them. But when it becomes something that everyone in the commu...

I have to agree. The variety of possible assignments is the community's greatest strength for recruiting and keeping talent, in my opinion. If you want to specialize (currently) you could, however you're taking your promotion post O-3 into your own hands. Which is exactly the problem! Why should I ...

VQ Bubba, I could care less what the other communities think as well. So on that point, we agree. But to say we need a pin to simply recognize each other as IW, or build esprit d’corps, is fundamentally wrong. As far as NFO wings go, you make a valid point. Maybe I am just a dinosaur and need ...

Swaye, I think your plan is sound, mostly because it is something I have been mulling over for the past year. Your typical IWO career goes from a national tour, to a tour flying, then maybe onto a ship or a NIOC, toss CRC duty in there, maybe a joint tour.... BL: you get a jack of all trades but an ...

Does anyone else think this is getting a little rediculous? Isn't a rating insignia or officer designator indicative of qualification? Now we have to have a pin to prove we are professionals? What exactly will this accomplish, other than appeasing those who never bothered, or taken the chance, to ge...
