Class of 2019 Receives Service Assignments

  POSTED ON: Monday, November 19, 2018 11:38 AM by Maddie Darbie

Service Assignment – Class of 2019

     The culmination of four years of challenging study and training as a Naval Academy midshipman is graduation and commissioning as a Navy or Marine Corps officer. Throughout their four years at the academy, midshipmen are exposed to the various career paths offered in the Navy and Marine Corps. Midshipmen may select from 24 different career choices and submit their service assignment preferences (up to six) in late August of their 1st Class (senior) year.

     Assignments are based on specific requirements provided to us by Department of the Navy leadership and consider both a midshipman’s aptitude and preference for a particular assignment. The Naval Academy endeavors to match personal preferences with aptitude and ability, placing midshipmen in the community best suited to their strengths so as to set them up for successful careers of naval service. Ninety-five percent of 1st Class midshipmen (seniors) in the Class of 2018 received their first or second assignment preference. Midshipmen who will commission as Surface Warfare Officers will select their first ships in the academy’s annual Ship Selection Night, 31 January. USS Sioux City LCS 11 will be commissioned at the Naval Academy on Nov. 17, however, it is not available for selection for the midshipmen going in the Surface Warfare (SWO) community.

These numbers are subject to change for various reasons including unforeseen medical issues:
