Mission, Vision, and Guiding Principles:
To provide leadership to the enlisted force, advice to Navy leadership, and a combat ready naval force. We are a Senior Enlisted force that serves first and foremost as Deckplate leaders. We are committed to developing sailors and enforcing standards. We remain responsive, aligned, and well connected to both leadership and Sailors. We conduct ourselves in a consistently professional, ethical, and traditional manner.
Our guiding principles are:
MASTER CHIEF PETTY OFFICER OF THE NAVY:
We are all beneficiaries of this evolving process to Zero in on Excellence ... First Classes, Chiefs, the Wardroom, our Total Force have a vital stake in keeping it on an upward trajectory. Necessity and nature dictate that we constantly breathe new life into it if we want the practice to remain relevant and to effectively support the CNO’s Sailing Directions and his tenets of warfighting first, operating forward and being ready.
My guidance for CPO 365 will seem familiar in many respects but fundamentally different in others... The ingenuity of our Chiefs in fusing mission requirements with opportunities to conduct productive training will keep us methodically moving in the right direction. I want to reiterate the significance of instilling fundamentals like good order and discipline, our Core Values and the Navy Ethos early on, and of reinforcing them throughout the year with practical application. Additionally, look for occasions to incorporate interaction with the Wardroom. Many officers I’ve met expressed their enthusiasm for enhancing the relationship between our communities. We should leverage every chance to do so as these are the future flag officers, commanding officers and department heads who will take our Fleet over the horizon.
ALL TRAINING SHALL BEGIN WITH THE Sailors Creed:
I am a United States Sailor.
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me.
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world.
I proudly serve my country's Navy combat team with
Honor, Courage and Commitment.
I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.
