Rear Admiral Jan E. Tighe - CAPSTONE

Rear Admiral Jan E. Tighe is a Capstone Fellow in group FY2012-1.  Rear Admiral Tighe is currently serving as the N2N6F4 - Director, Decision Superiority on the OPNAV Staff.  She earned her PhD in Electrical Engineering in 2001 from the Naval Postgraduate School. 

Education at the general/flag officer level is inherently joint and unified in nature. Its focus is on the highest levels of strategy, integrating the elements of national power to achieve national security objectives. In particular, the CAPSTONE course reinforces new general/flag officer comprehension of joint matters and national security strategy needed for the remainder of an officer's career.

She'll return to the OPNAV staff upon completion of Capstone in November 2011.

Isn't this above your pay grade?

Far above my paygrade. And probably yours.

What is the pay grade issue. I do not understand. Is someone getting too much pay? I am not a military person.

All part of the education process. Don't be alarmed. It's part of the public record on the NDU website.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop Mike. I got her out of office and had no idea where she was. Good training.

Interesting to note these new Flag officers do not get any face time with the Commander in Chief.

In another snub of our military, the 1985 (yes 1985 - 26 years ago 1985) superbowl Chicago Bears received a belated honor on Friday 3 Oct 2011--a White House reception hosted by Bears fan President Barack Obama.

I find it unfortunate that we as a community are fixated on flag officers when all the work is done at the O3-O4 level.

NIOC CMC said...

Figures that you officers think you are doing all the work (O1-O10). The work that matters - supporting the Fleet - is done by our enlisted Sailors (E1-E6).

I offer two words to NIOC CMC's comment -


OUCH!

and

Touche'....

O3s and O4s do work? Since when?

NIOC CMC - As a prior NIOC CO, I would say all ranks at my command, E-5 to 0-5 in this case, were working hard. While we all work hard, the responsibilities of an E-6 do not match the responsibilities of a an O-6, nor do the O-6 responsibilities remotely match that of a Flag Officer. To say the white hats do all the work supporting the fleet, or whatever other warfighter we are supporting, would be factually incorrect. It might make the white hats feel good to think they are doing all the "real" work, but in reality we all have our role to play (including the chiefs and officers) and we all have to work hard together to make sure we get the job done.

CMC, Great response. Great delivery. Nuff Said. The way I see it is the 03 and 04's task the CPO's who then delegate accordingly. Yes we all play a bit part but to say all the work is done on the 03-04 level is just ignorant.

As a past NIOC CO you should be aware that the E 1through E 9 personnel have no rank they have only rate and rating.

Very Respectfully,
