OPNAV AO - you think you're busy now, just wait!!!
The Vice Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mark Ferguson said last week the Navy will continue to reduce its number of staff positions. After 10 years of war, the office of the chief of naval operations grew to 2,300 people. With the war ending, Ferguson said Nov. 19 during an Association of the United States Navy luncheon in Arlington, VA, the OPNAV staff will be reduced to 1,500 personnel. The service also reduced 35 flag officer positions and will announce seven more reductions in January, he added.
