Navy looking for sailors for officer programs
CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — The Navy is searching for sailors to enroll in the fiscal year 2013 limited-duty and chief warrant officer programs.
Positions are available in the surface, submarine, aviation, general series and staff corps communities. Officers will have the opportunity to serve in a variety of leadership billets within their technical fields, ranging from division officer to commanding officer ashore, according to a Navy news release.
To be eligible for the limited-duty officer program, sailors must be U.S. citizens, serving in pay grades E-7 through E-9, or an E-6 who has passed the exam for E-7. Applicants for the program must be on active duty and have at least eight but not more than 16 years of active-duty service, the Navy said.
The chief warrant officer program requires sailors who are U.S. citizens, serving in pay grades E-7 through E-9 on active duty, and have at least 12 but not more than 22 years’ active-duty service.
Neither program requires a college degree. Applications are due by Oct. 1, according to the release.
