Navy Contracting–The Language of Fleet Business

​I began serving as the Supply Officer at Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit EIGHT (EODMU 8) in October of 2017, and in my first few months I have quickly realized how my previous assignment as a Contracting Officer at the Department of the Navy, Assistant for Administration (DON/AA), prepared me to serve in this capacity. When deciding on that first shore duty opportunity, it’s critical for junior officers to reach out to their peers and leaders to better understand the flavor of the Supply Corps’ core competencies. Doing so will provide insight as to how that future assignment will not only impact future opportunities, but also contribute to one’s level of knowledge – knowledge, that can increase one’s effectiveness at that career-critical second operational tour.
