Reserve 1815 AT/ADT/ADSW Opportunities Afloat

I've just begun working with a Reserve Officer Recruiter on putting together a DCO package for next year's board...applying for the 1815 community. There are a few questions I have about the Reserve 1815 Officer Community that the recruiter is unable to answer for me, but that perhaps someone on this forum can. Primarily, what at-sea opportunities, if any, exist for an 1815 JO? If selected, should I expect to be limited to AT/ADT/ADSW opportunities at shore commands only?

I don't believe there are any afloat opportunities for an 1815;however, you should contact the reserve IWC Officer Community Manager, Ms. Patty Pifer, at (901) 874-2976 or patricia.pifer@navy.mil in order to get an official answer.

Also, just to make you aware, the DCO board is extremely competitive so if you call the OCM, take the time to also ask the question of what competitive looks like to determine what you can do to strengthen your application.
