RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the solicitation of applications
from highly qualified and motivated E6 through E9 personnel for the
FY-16 Navy 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.  The LDO/CWO career paths provide additional leadership
opportunities and enhance a Sailor*s 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.
