    Send them to SWO School directly from the Academy like they used to instead of going to the fleet first.

    Too many SWOs see seafaring skills as a distraction from "warfighting" skills. They are more concerned with becoming the Combat Systems Officer than the Navigator or First Lieutenant since that is the more likely path to Command.
