We Can Fix the SWO Career Path

There was an interesting article in the April issue of the Naval Institute Proceedings entitled as above. ( See below link).

I was particularly interested in the recommendation to eliminate the "XO/CO Fleet-up", which was indicated as being a fairly recent practice.
I Checked it out and found that it was referring to the fleet-up of the XO to being the CO of the same ship after eighteen months, a concept which was apparently implemented in 2006 (See below link: http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=21437).
In my experience, it was not all that unusual for an XO to be fleeted up to being CO--but always to a different, and usually smaller class ship.

I found all of the recommendations for "fixing" the current SWO situation to be interesting.
