NCWDG command size doesn't seem to warrant a Capatain and a flag officer equivalent. Am I missing something?

Seems like it's been a long time since they "acquisitioned" anything more than contractor labor on existing programs.

Yes you are missing something. And if we are fortunate we'll never see that something on this network.

With each new CO, we have an expectation that NCWDG is going to grow up and be more than an R&D hobby shop. We just can't quite get there. Fortunately, we do keep growing. When we get a CO who can pour his/her own coffee, I'll see that as progress.
