Ron: I expect you would find that personnel on ships of the fleet would closely resemble that of the A.G. in terms of USN and USNR. You are correct in assuming that many senior people were regulars but, on the other hand, many reservists rose rapidly, not so much because they were brighter but because the Navy's expansion outpaced the availability of qualified Regular Navy personnel.
