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

line, restricted line, and staff corps communities.

fields, ranging from division officers to commanding officers (COs).
