Flag Aide

Ever wondered what an Admiral does for a living?  Want to learn an organization from the TOP DOWN?  Flag aide jobs are a fantastic way to gain experience and insight on how the Navy operates.  As an Aide, you get to handle many of the Admiral’s personal and administrative matters.  It is challenging but highly rewarding duty for Junior Officers with strong demonstrated performance in their DIVO tours.

If you are interested in being nominated for a flag aide position, contact your detailer.  If it is not in your record, you will be asked to provide a current official photo.  To expedite the nomination process, you can scan the photo and send it to your detailer via e-mail.  You will also need to provide a brief biography explaining your background, previous assignments, and other pertinent personal information.  Additionally, it is recommended that you request a letter of recommendation (endorsement letter) from your CO that includes any information on your performance that would not already be included in your record as well as any other remarks the CO chooses to address.  There is no requisite format for the letter other than it must be on command letterhead, addressed to the Flag Aide nomination board, and include your name in the subject line.  If you are interested in applying for more than one billet, is it recommended that the letter be generic so that you need only submit one.

FLAG AIDE PACKAGE: A package will then be created by PERS-41 for the Admiral's aide position to which you are applying.  Packages include:
-Copies of all officer FITREPs in your record
-Personal Summary Record
-Advanced qualifications (EOOW/TAO)
-Full-length official photo
-Career biography
-Command endorsement letter
**Make sure that your record is up to date and provide your detailer with any documents that are not already in your ODC/PSR/OMPF for your nomination package**

Once the packages are assembled, they are disseminated to the Admiral’s staff for review and consideration.  The Admiral may select individuals for an interview.  Interviews may be conducted over the phone, using VTC, or in person.

If you are interested in a flag aide position, view the current Flag Aide billet list and contact your detailer.
