In his podcast, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson discussed what he describes as the #USNavy 'core attributes.' Initiative is one of them: "This goes toward each of our Sailors, particularly our leaders, exercising their authority to the fullest extent possible. This is absolutely fundamental to being effective in decentralized operations. Furthermore, even down to the most junior Sailor, we've got to recognize that the best idea or the best question might come from the most junior person in the group, so we've got to have a good sense of respect for that, and not let our structure or our seniority get in the way of someone else demonstrating initiative and coming forward with a good idea or a thoughtful question."

In his podcast, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson discussed what he describes as the #USNavy 'core attributes.' Accountability is one of them: "One of the things that I truly love about being in the Navy is that we are a mission focused force. We set aggressive goals and stretch goals, and we hold ourselves accountable to achieve those goals. As part of our practice we are going to build in an assessment strategy so we can measure our progress toward our goals. And we have to be our own worst critic and make adjustments as required so that we can achieve those ends that we set about achieving." Learn more at http://1.usa.gov/1YQbXUr
In his podcast, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson discussed what he describes as the #USNavy 'core attributes.' Integrity is one of them: "I see integrity as having two dimensions. One is personal integrity, where each of our core values aligns with honor, courage, and commitment. We also have to extend beyond ourselves and actively strengthen our shipmates' integrity as well. That's the individual dimension. There is an institutional dimension of integrity and our behaviors as an organization need to be consistent with the values that we profess."

On this day in 2013, the future USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) was christened in Newport News. #USNavy aircraft carriers are central to the nation's defense strategy, which calls for forward presence; the ability to simultaneously deter potential adversaries and assure our allies; and capacity to project power at sea and ashore. CVN 78 delivery will restore the aircraft carrier fleet to 11 ships, provide significant capability improvement, and offer 25 percent more operational days than Nimitz class aircraft carriers. Reduced maintenance requirements coupled with decreased crew requirements will reduce CVN 78's life cycle costs in comparison to Nimitz class aircraft carriers by approximately $80 million per ship per year.
