Going SWO: Ship Selection
Arguably the most momentous night of any Surface Warfare Officer’s career is his/her ship selection. Resembling the NFL Draft, ship selection is based on a ranking system and available ship list. Midshipmen find out their order of merit among their peers, walk across stage and select the name of the first ship they will serve on in the U.S. Navy. Navy detailers oversee this process, as friends, family and future shipmates standby to watch each midshipman’s fate.
