Fast forward to July 25th, 20 CWOs eagerly arrived to the first in person class. Soon, all those frozen faces from the screen became familiar, friendships started to build and the saga continued. Throughout the week, various topics were discussed, to include leadership, individual presentations and deep discussions regarding what it means to be an officer helped CWOs become stronger leaders. Guidance received from instructors, CWO Timberlake, and CWO Baldueza was crucial and much appreciated. We came in as individuals, we left with long lasting professional and personal friendships. Job well done class 09-22!
