Can the Designated Coxswain or Facility Be Changed After Orders Have Been Approved?
Posted by COMO Susan Davies on 16 October 2016 12:54 PM

Q:  Once orders have been requested in AOM using a designated Coxswain for an owner-present OPFAC, can the designated Coxswain be changed for those orders later.  Example - orders for Bob's OPFAC (who is crew trainee) were requested with CX-A as designated CX.  Prior to patrol, CX-A becomes ill and CX-B needs to replace CX-A. Can CX-B be input to orders as lead, replacing CX-A?  If the substitution is "last minute", can CX-B conduct the patrol using the orders issued to CX-A, and make the change in AOM later?

A:  Short Answer is no, once the orders have been approved, neither the Coxswain nor the facility may be changed. New orders must be requested and approved before the patrol.
