Fall 2013 NROTC Ship Selection
Midshipmen and Officer Candidates find out their order of merit among their peers and get a call from a detailer at NPC to select the name of the first ship they will serve on in the U.S. Navy. This live web-based event is coordinated through NPC and each of the NROTC units to make a fun and interactive ship selection process that resembles USNA ship selection as closely as possible.
