The Navy's primary mission is combat warfare in the defense of our country. To achieve this mission it is vital that naval officers in operational billets assigned to ships, submarines, aircraft squadrons, and afloat staffs maintain the highest degree of readiness and tactical expertise. Analysis of survey data obtained from air warfare officers indicates the existence of role conflict and role ambiguity in the area of individual tactical development. The results showed, in particular, that officers perceived differences in how they, their commands, and the Navy evaluated the importance of officer tactical-skill development.
