Wanted to post this ALCGOFF for a couple of reasons. First it indicates that some of the Webber class will be commanded by CWO BOSN and second that it seems to indicate a couple of the class are going to Boston and at least one to Kodiak. Not sure, but this seems earlier than expected.
These changes may also reflect a desire for more experience because these little ships are venturing far from home.
