Sea Special Programs
This is the home for New Construction Detailers, the LCAC program Detailer, LCS Program, Fleet Decommissioning, Disestablishment, and Homeport Change Coordinators.
Here at PERS-409 we detail the elite of the Fleet! If you have what it takes (and meet the eligibility requirements), for a demanding and rewarding experience in New Construction, LCAC’s, or Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), ask your rating detailer about Sea Special Programs. There is nothing like the experience of becoming a "plank owner". The new construction pipeline will often give you access to rating schools that are not available to the rest of the fleet. In addition to schools, you’ll have the satisfaction of breathing life into a newly commissioned ship and placing that ship in service.
For those ships and shore commands undergoing the decommissioning process, we are committed to making your transition to a new duty station as seamless and stress free as possible. The key for each of you is to involve your family early on in the decision process. Come to the demanning conference with several realistic choices for follow on assignments and we will try our hardest to give you your top choice. Unfortunately we can not "make" a billet for you if one does not exist where you want to go and can only offer you valid requisitions. This is why it’s so important for you to have several realistic choices that will satisfy both you and your family, when it comes to decision time.
I’m extremely proud of the PERS-409 team! They are the best in the business. Check out our Web page to gather information and then contact your detailer. We are committed to excellence in service to the Fleet and genuinely want you to have a positive detailing experience.
