Well after two years of training, 5 months of training hold in a hugh charlie foxtrot at prototype school, my son finally got his boat assignment, the SSGN Florida. This was his first choice. I am amazed that the Navy actually did that.

He will be the new EOOW on the Gold team.

Ironically he was born and raised in Florida...

Engineering officer of the watch. You have to stand watch back aft until you get qualified and enough seniority to get on the OOD (officer of the deck) watchbill.


He WILL have to qualify EOOW before he can stand a watch on the boat. Quals never end.

Congratulations to your son. At least he will know his schedule for a while. Better than a fast attack guy.
