USS Philippine Sea Officers Promoted

Five first class petty officers assigned to the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea (CG 58) were selected for advancement to chief petty officer (CPO), Aug. 5.

 

Gunner’s Mate 1st Class Nicholas Christman, Damage Controlman 1st Class Mark Hughner, Fire Controlman 1st Class Jason Lauver, Interior Communications Electrician 1st Class Angela Scardino and Gas Turbine System Technician (Mechanical) 1st Class Inthasone Siharath were the Sailors selected for advancement.

Selectees aboard Philippine Sea will wear a “Chief Selectee” badge and will soon assume the title “Chief,” forever changing their naval careers. Before the advancement to chief petty officer, they will begin the multi-week final phase of the CPO 365 training process.

The selectees receive physical training, mentoring and training in the various new responsibilities they will take on with their gold fouled anchors.
