Upon the recommendation of the Chief of Naval Operations, the Secretary of the Navy has approved a plan that will result in 34 Navy Flag Officer positions being reduced, eliminated, or consolidatedNice to see the CNO has executed Phase 1 of Plan Salamander. I look forward to entire shore-Staff mergers and/or eliminations next.
The plan aligns Navy Flag Officer billet structure to inventory, complies with statutory limits of USC Title 10, and preserves Navy’s ability to meet Joint flag officer requirements,
I especially like the 1-star billets re-coded as CAPT. A note to Skippy-san, your windmill/white whale is on pages 4 & 7. I'll tip a drink for you tonight.
Here is the outline from USNINews;
