Rather than remark on the ongoing thread. I'm starting a new one. 1. Military personnel attached to a vessel do not have the right to trial by court martial. 2. For a long time, All Navy Warrant Officers were commissioned. No W-1s. Things change. The Navy's solution to the 'notch' aviator shortage was to institute the Warrant Officer Pilot program. The cool thing for the Warrant Officer pilots is they will just be pilots, and not burdoned with Division Officer and Department Head Responsibilities.https://www.navy.mil/Press-Office/News-Stories/Article/2676584/navy-announces-initial-aviation-warrant-officer-selection-board/#:~:text=Over the next six to,of roughly 450 aviation warrants.&text=Upon graduation, they will commission,the MQ-25 aerial vehicle. Bonus fact: Rear Admirals. In the past, Navy 0-7s and O-8s wore two stars. Major Generals in the other services got jealous and complained. So, now the U.S. Navy has Rear Admiral Lower Half(O-7) and Rear Admiral Upper Half (O-8) Trivia Challenge: Who was the only U.S. Six Star General?
