Captain Robert Girrier, USN has served at sea on cruiser-destroyer units.  He commanded USS Guardian (MCM-5) and USS Roosevelt (DDG-80).  Robert Girrier is the co-author of Watch Officer's Guide: A Handbook for All Deck Watch Officers (Fifteenth Edition) and Division Officer's Guide (Eleventh Edition).

 

According to the book description of Watch Officer's Guide: A Handbook for All Deck Watch Officers, “This handbook addresses every aspect of a watchstander's duties at sea and in port. A classic reference of the profession since its initial publication in 1911, the guide is a compendium of information and wisdom contributed by hundreds of naval officers and mariners over the past eighty years. For watch officers beginning their training, the book provides an abundance of useful, up-to-date information. For experienced watch officers, it is handy both for general review and for use while actually standing watch.

 

The revised edition offers much new material, including sessions on standing watch in the combat information center, training, and engineering, and a quick-reference guide filled with the shiphandler's tricks of the trade. Other material has been brought into line with current practice. No officer who stands watch at sea or in port should be without this useful volume.”
