1. Captain Mitch Bruce is enthusiastically recommended to receive a waiver to attend the Command and Staff College Blended Seminar Program.
2. Per MARADMIN 153-16, one seat in this seminar was allocated to this command. Initially the command nominated Major Bart Lambert but shortly after the submission, Major Lambert received permanent change of station orders to depart during summer 2016.
3. Due to the high turn-over of field grade officers this summer, Captain Bruce is the officer who is available and has the need and desire to complete this seminar. Although he is not selected to Major, he has the knowledge, background, and the drive to do extremely well. Captain Bruce has a lot to offer in his capacity as a Defense Systems Analyst
