I have no experience with this program. Nor have I ever even met a Cyber Warrant. But it sure seems like we are doing this Warrant program the right right way, vice the way we waste the talents of our other Warrants and throw them into a collective pool of IW-ness. Former CTI's with extensive language skills are just one example. Can anyone confirm the usefullness of the Cyber Warrant?

I am guessing the billets for this unique skillset are at the "big four" or similar shore-based commands. How well do these guys fair in promotion boards against all other Warrants in the Navy, since we don't select by designator. A Cyber Warrant may do great things within his community but the URL and even the RL who are sitting the advancement boards will only see a candidate who has not done "fleet" type duties. One of the feedbacks I heard from last year's W5 board was that IW Warrants had fewer deployments (on average of 2-3 going back to when they were W2) than the rest of the designators which is why no W5 were selected last year. What will make the Cyber Warrants stand out? How do we sell the program to stellar CTN Chiefs and above? "Go ahead and apply, but don't expect to get past CWO3?"

All issues that need to be addressed. I always wondered why Warrants and LDO's competed for advancement in a single group, as if they all did the same job.
