Anyone have any experience precomming a ship as the IWO? I may have a few questions about your experience and/or ask for some advice or words of wisdom. Can do it here or through PM, I don't mind.

Thanks.

Having served on LHD5 previously set me up pretty well for IW/EW side of the house. I had awesome LCPOs in SSES and Combat, so I was able to focus a fair bit of my energy on my SWO qual. The most important thing I can say is KNOW YOUR GEAR!!! Short of that, my biggest challenge was getting SSES Sups comfortable talking w/ TAO & other watches. Cadence was pretty quick and they really had to learn how to jump in and quickly get their reports out. This was one of my most rewarding tours yet so enjoy it.
