COMNAVSECGRU Achievement Number 4

Short Title: Selection of officers for key command assignments.

Date/Place: 1987. Staff Washington DC

Problem or situation:

Too many commanding officers were falling short of standards for command. The selection responsibility rested with the Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP).


CNSG convinced USN hierarchy that the process should be its responsibility. CNSG would be better able to assess command candidates by assembling a small number of trusted 1610 seniors who could better factor important considerations based on longer exposure/experience. CNSG would forward its recommendations to CNP for approval.


CNSG developed the best leadership in the history of its existence.
