CWO Erik Peterson, Assignment Officer
Officer's Hot Word:
Updated 22 APR 2014
Shipmates and fellow technicians, my last day as your Assignment Officer will be 13 June 2014. At that time, I will be leaving you in the very capable hands of CWO Tim O'Donnell. He'll be reporting to PSC EPM-2 in late May to begin our relief process. Until my departure date, please copy he and I both on your correspondence.
During my tenure the last 2 years as your Assignment Officer, I have had the pleasure of speaking directly or indirectly with all of you. I have enjoyed helping you all make assignment decisions that will help you enhance your careers.
My last piece of advice for you as I begin the transition to my next unit is, as you arrive upon your own assignment seasons, keep your service and career development in mind as you craft your E-Resumes. Of course we all want and need to take care of ourselves and our families, but keep in mind you're in a Military Service and in order to succeed in our service, you must keep in mind that you are here to serve our country and not necessarily yourselves.
If you need to contact me after I depart, I'll be working as a project officer at OSC Martinsburg, WV. You can find me in Global as LT Erik D. Peterson, as I will be departing the ranks of the CWO Corps on 01 May.
If you are currently AFLOAT, tour complete in AY15 (01 July 2015) and will be seeking an extension, contact me ASAP via your chain of command. I will be building the AY15 Early Afloat Shopping List and need to know who will be competing for extensions afloat.
