This article reports that the Senior Surface Warfare Officer Critical Skills Retention Bonus published on November 10, 2004 is being used to entice surface warfare commanders and captains to till critical billets at sea and overseas. The Navy is going in the wrong direction to keep top-quality officers in senior leadership positions at sea. The billets listed seem to include the majority of the sea-duty billets for the O-5/O-6 surface warfare officers, the author was a career counselor for a large pan of his career and came to realize early on that bonuses and financial incentives are not always effective in attracting quality individuals.
