VS NFO. Blue and Gold Officer
Not saying all the comments on SWO from us aviators are invalid, but consider the source. Most of us who have been to sea have a basis for our opinions, but we are not SWOs, Supply Corps Officers, or Submariners for a reason. There are some SWOs on AW. I'd suggest their opinion should hold more weight than mine.Is it really that bad as an SWO? I get that this is an aviation oriented site, but these comments appear to make SWO the very bottom of the barrel.
After all, isn't SWO the backbone of the Navy? Is all the apparent backstabbing and politics that is present in SWO due to the fact that most in that community are there because they were not selected or washed out of other designators? If so, I don't think it's very encouraging to join a community filled with frustration and resentment. That would explain all the negative comments, I guess.
