It doesn't take away from the fact that it is a well deserved promotion.


I'm talking about her entire career path, not just her Flag tour.

For the record, I'm not ignorant enough to think promotions are fair. But I also won't sit back and simply say, "it is what it is."

My point is, as an up and coming two-star she will be in the running to lead our community and command FCC/C10F. Given her background, that concerns me.


Maybe running the community, but there is no reason to assume that she will automatically be C10F. That is still a URL flag billet, not IW/IDC.

Are we talking about FLTCYBERCOM/C10F? VADM Rogers is a 3-star IDC Flag (1860, previously 1810). Each IDC community will still have a community leader, which may or may not always coincide with various IC/DOD/Navy command/leadership positions.

Looks like the IDC will contribute to the reduction in Flag Officer billets. This includes some roll-downs on both the OPNAV N2/N6 and C10F staffs.

Details are here:

Official word on Flag reductions. I wonder what this will mean for our total numbers.

Navy.mil on August 20th, 2013 wrote:Navy Announces Plan to Reduce Flag Officer Structure

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Upon the recommendation of the Chief of Naval Operations, the Secretary of the Navy has approved the initial step to reduce, eliminate or consolidate a net of 35 Navy flag officer positions in the ranks of rear admiral (lower half) (O-7), rear admiral (O-8), and vice admiral (O-9) Navy officials announced Aug. 20.

"We had to make tough choices but it was the right thing to do - the plan is in line with Congressional mandates, OSD guidance, and our changing fiscal environment," said Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mark E. Ferguson.

Flag officer end strength adjustments are already underway using a phased approach and will be completed by fiscal year 2017. This will result in a flag officer end strength of 151 Navy specific billets while meeting the existing minimum requirement for 61 Navy flag officers to fill joint billets.

"This plan postures the Navy to absorb future reductions in headquarters and staff due to sequestration. In fact, we plan to submit the elimination of an additional six flag billets with the FY15 defense budget," said Ferguson. "This reflects our commitment to working more efficiently and cost-effectively in this resource constrained environment without putting our warfighting capabilities at risk."

Specific billets affected by this plan are:

It would be interesting to see if reduction in flags causes a reduction in O-6. My gut tells me that it wouldn't, but that might be something the OCM can help us out with.

I wonder if there are going to be other billet downgrades/eliminations (other than Flag). Again, with the ramp-up of cyber, my gut tells me no - but then again, I've been wrong before...

"Rear Adm. (lower half) Timothy J. White will be assigned as commander, Cyber, National Mission Force (CNMF), Fort Meade, Maryland. White is currently serving as director for intelligence, J2, U.S. Pacific Command, Camp H. M. Smith, Hawaii."

Can't figure out who he's replacing.

Somewhat cryptic and foreboding. Well played.

Heard some BIG rumors myself recently, but nothing unexpected. Must be true if it made it all the way down here to this hovel.
