Which Roles for These Ranks?!?

#1
Basically, I am wondering what specific roles, officers have at certain ranks?
Specifically a Pilot at Lt., L/Cdr. and Cdr. (Such as a flight commander possibly.
An AEO at the ranks listed above
And although it is not FAA so probably the wrong forum, A logistics officer. :)
Cheers guys!

Pilots
Cdr kicks arse
Lt/Cdr Can wipe his own arse
Lt Knows where his arse is.
AEO
Cdr Has a nice warm office
Lt/Cdr Has a pen
LT Is allowed to write in Chinagraph pencil

Logistics officer.
Cdr Owns everything on a ship
LT/Cdr Pretends he owns everything on a ship
Lt Doesn't care who owns anything as long as it aint on his slop chit.

Basically for aircrew, you pretty much stop being a pilot when you reach Commander.

For Logistics, you may only see one seagoing appointment after reaching Commander. For AEO, likewise but odds are you'll never serve on a ship more than twice in an entire career.

I know several Cdr AE who've never done more than 4 months on a ship.

Funny world, the FAA. AETs mank like ten when they are told upon joining that they probably won't get to sea for four or five years. They then spend the remainder of their career trying to make sure it's not that soon. ;)

Just a reflection of the land centric recent past I guess - the AEO goes where his aircraft go. When we kept a CVS in the Adriatic with SHAR, SK6, and SKW then surely there were AEOs with those squadrons....

There were indeed but my first post in this thread with regard AEOs still applied then, as now.
