RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the solicitation of applications from highly 
qualified and motivated E-6 through E-9 Sailors for the FY-19 Navy Selected 
Reserve Limited Duty Officer (LDO) and Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) programs.  
LDOs and CWOs bring a variety of experience and unique perspectives into the 
wardroom from their enlisted service.  LDO/CWO career paths provide 
additional leadership opportunities and enhance a Sailors ability to 
contribute to the Navy Reserve.  These programs deliver to the officer corps 
seasoned professionals with proven leadership abilities at an economical 
cost.  LDOs provide broad technical management and leadership skills, and 
CWOs provide specific technical expertise and leadership skills in support of 
the Unrestricted Line, Restricted Line, and Staff Corps communities.  LDOs 
and CWOs serve in a variety of leadership billets within their technical 
fields, ranging from division officers to commanding officers (CO).
