176 Hawaii Sailors earn information dominance warfare pin

The U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) director for intelligence, Rear Admiral Elizabeth Train, presented the first group of 176 Sailors from Navy Region Hawaii with the new information dominance warfare insignia aboard the USS Missouri Memorial in Pearl Harbor on December 15, 2010.

Admiral Train presented the insignia to 176 Sailors, both officer and enlisted, who completed a rigorous personal qualification program in information intensive fields.

"The ceremony today is a milestone event. It's a significant restructuring of the Navy today. This is a tremendous time and opportunity for all of us, all of you, to develop the next generation of leaders." 
Admiral Liz Train
The warfare pin identifies professionals who possess extensive skills to develop and deliver dominant information capabilities in support of U.S. Navy, joint and nation warfighting requirements.
