FY12 Commanding Officer selectees and their new commands announced by VADM Rogers

Captain Command

I ask that you continue to stress the importance of command to your wardrooms and to each other. Leadership remains one of our fundamental developmental building blocks (the other two being technical expertise and operational proficiency) and command is the ultimate embodiment of that building block.  There is no higher calling for a naval officer than to command others. 
 
Vice Admiral Michael S. Rogers
Commander, U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/TENTH Fleet

Key question: Why did officers that were selected from the O-6/O-5board (SEPT11 Screening Board) not give commands? Two O-6s and one O-5 fall into that category.

And why were officers who were not selected (SEPT11 Screening Board)for Command given Command? One O-6and one O-5 fall into that category.

Very interesting .....

I think you are only looking apart of the picture here. This is only part of the slate. If you are an active duty IW officer, you will have access to VADM Rogers' message explaining this.
