Ship assignments are in and UW NROTC is sending five surface warfare officers off into the fleet after they commission March 16th. Officer Candidate Wright, Midshipman Eiser, MIDN Fee, MIDN Brantner, and MIDN Pajarillo will be reporting to their respective ships as Ensigns of the United States Navy. OC Wright will be reporting to the USS Makin Island (LHD-8), a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship. MIDN Eiser is reporting to the USS Decatur (DDG-73),an Arleigh Burke class destroyer. MIDN Fee has been given orders to the USS Cowpens (CG-63), a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser. MIDN Brantner and MIDN Pajarillo will be stuck together for a few more years as both of them were assigned to USS Defender (MCM-2), an Avenger-class mine countermeasures ship. Good luck to these future officers as they will head off soon to their respective ships.
