CHAPTER  1 YOUR  CAREER  IN  THE  NAVY The   Navy,   like   any   other   large   organization, constantly strives to be among the leaders in the many fields   of   technological   advancement   through continuing research and developmental efforts.  These efforts also encompass the design and application of modern  managerial  techniques  to  do  the  best  job  in the  most  efficient  and  effective  manner  because  we are, first of all, an organization of people. When  you  accepted  a  commission  in  the  Navy, you  became  a  member  of  the  Navy  team.    You  can expect  a  challenging  and  rewarding  career  in  such varying   fields   as   aviation,   oceanography,   space development, nuclear propulsion, sound propagation, ship and weapons systems development, financial and personnel management, and project development and management. OFFICER CATEGORIES You received your commission as either a line or staff  officer,  depending  upon  your  educational  and physical qualifications, your interests, and your prior experience. Within   the   line   designation,   you   are either an unrestricted line (URL) officer or a restricted line  (RL)  officer.    Defined  simply,  URL officers  are those considered eligible for command either ashore or   at   sea   within   one   of   the   five   areas   of   warfare expertise: surface,   aviation,   submarine,   special operations, or special warfare.   General URL officers are eligible only for command of shore activities. The  RL  officer  category  includes  those  officers qualified to serve in highly specialized jobs, such as engineering   duty   or   aeronautical   engineering   and maintenance   duty. RL   officers   may   command auxiliary vessels and designated shore activities. Officers  specializing  in  areas  such  as  medicine, supply, civil engineering, law, dentistry, theology, or nursing receive commissions in the staff corps.   Like RL  officers,  staff  corps  officers  are  not  eligible  for command   at   sea   but   may   assume   command   of activities within their own corps. OFFICER ASSIGNMENTS Specific   types   of   duty   assignments   for   each officer will vary, depending on the officer’s specialty, educational training, and interests.  Those of you who plan   a   career   in   the   unrestricted   line   will   find additional  information  in  the   Naval  Officer  Career Planning Guidebook, OPNAV P-13-1-86. Typical  professional  development  patterns  are shown  in  view  A of  appendix  I.    These  illustrations show  the  general  progression  of  assignments  and promotions   the   various   officer   communities   can expect. (The  number  of  years’  continuous  service [YCS]  between  promotions  shown  in  the  exhibits  is an  average.)     No  two  officers  will  follow  identical career   patterns;   however,   on   the   average,   the successful   officer   will   meet   most   of   the   career milestones   in   about   the   same   sequence   shown   in appendix I.    For instance, if you select a career as a surface warfare officer, you may stay at sea the first 4 years because of operational requirements or personal choice.   During this time you will strive to complete personnel  qualification  standards  (PQS)  and  qualify as  division  officer,  officer  of  the  deck,  engineering officer  of  the  watch,  surface  warfare  officer  and  be selected for department head school.   Then you may rotate  ashore  for  staff  duty  or  to  attend  the  Naval Postgraduate  School.    Although  you  did  not  follow the development plan exactly, you will have obtained the  experience  and  qualifications  necessary  to  make you competitive with your year-group peers. Views B through H of appendix I are examples of professional   development   patterns   in   other   career specialty fields.    The career path for female officers parallels that of male officers except as constrained by law. MILITARY DUTY FOR WOMEN Navy  and  Marine  Corps  women  are  a  valuable personnel resource who contribute significantly to the Navy’s mission. Title   10,   U.S.   Code,   Section   6015,   states   that women   are   allowed   to   fly   combatant   aircraft   in combat and serve on combatant vessels if attached to 1-1
