U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT) Sailors skilled in the information technology field can now earn the Enlisted Information Dominance Warfare Specialist (EIDWS) pin under the Pacific Fleet (PACFLT) command. The EIDWS program covers specific knowledge pertaining to the information dominance corps (IDC) ratings. To qualify, Sailors must demonstrate an understanding of several rates, including aerographer's mate, cryptologic technician, information systems technician, and intelligence. The new PACFLT program is open to personnel in IDC ratings who meet the prerequisites and may become available next year to other Staff Sailors on a case-by-case basis.
