Officer Master File data were used to reconstruct and analyze the career paths of a sample of 1,084 year group 1958-1963 Surface Warfare Officers. Of particular concern were the developmental characteristics, apart from performance, which distinguished the careers of commander-command selectees from those of nonselectees. A wide variety of career development opportunities were found to have been provided to Surface Warfare Officers to enable them to qualify for command selection, and the absence of any absolute path to selection or nonselection was confirmed. There were, however, certain individual billet types, combination of billets and commissioning sources which, if experienced by Surface Warfare Officers, tended to increase or decrease their probability of later command selection. In this regard, the singular importance of the lieutenant commander executive officer tour to command selection was documented.
