Description


As naval officers transition to rewarding and challenging jobs ashore, Naval Officer's Guide to the Pentagon offers a valuable helping hand along the journey. This practical guide advises officers of all paygrades, experience levels, and warfare communities, as well as Navy civilians, on life and work in Washington, D.C., and in the Pentagon, in particular.


The book is a user-friendly one-stop-shop for information, offering insights from successful officers with varied warfare community backgrounds who have served in the Pentagon and in Washington in a range of staff roles. Tailored to naval officers but useful to civilians interested in better understanding the demands and lifestyle of working at the Pentagon, Naval Officer's Guide to the Pentagon will be a positive addition to the professional libraries of naval leaders past, present, and future. In particular, the book explores the history of the building, its construction, and how to navigate its miles of corridors; examines the service, joint, and secretariat staff that are headquartered in the Pentagon; explains some of the staff jobs that may be available to officers seeking to work in the Pentagon; explores some of the governmental branches, agencies, and other organizations that exist in Washington with whom officers at the Pentagon may interact; and describes recreational and other personal opportunities that exist in Washington that may be of interest to naval officers, civilians, and their families.
