This evaluation is submitted on the occasion of Petty Officer Osterday’s transfer to Trident Training Facility Bangor, WA. As one of my top Second Class Petty Officers, his level of involvement and technical expertise has been outstanding.

•  Consummate professional. He demonstrated superior knowledge and forceful backup in the areas of Strategic Navigation and Interior Communication systems during Command inspections and graded team trainers, often singled out as a top performer.

•  Recognized expert. He consistently provided his electronic navigation technical expertise as the Maneuvering Watch Bridge GPS Operator, directly contributing to the safety of RHODE ISLAND while piloting in restricted waters. Operating at the level of a seasoned First Class Petty Officer, he was relied upon to provide trustworthy backup and professional assistance in training Junior Officers on navigation and ship-handling.

Petty Officer Osterday requires little supervision and provides superior results. He consistently demonstrates sound judgement and unquestionable reliability. He has my strongest recommendation for advancement to First Class Petty Officer.
