Tradition of Uniform Inspections


MASTER CHIEF PETTY OFFICER
OF THE NAVY MIKE STEVENS RECENTLY TOOK TIME OUT
FROM HIS TRADITIONAL DUTIES TO CONDUCT A
UNIFORM INSPECTION OF THE U-S NAVY CEREMONIAL
GUARD IN WASHINGTON D.C. AS I WAS DOING THIS
INSPECTION I WAS HAVING FLASHBACKS FROM TWENTY
YEARS AGO TO WHEN I WAS A YOUNG DIVISION CHIEF
INSPECTING MY OWN SAILORS IN FRONT OF
MORNING QUARTERS. I AM CONFIDENT THAT OUR
CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS AND OUR FIRST CLASS PETTY
OFFICERS AND DIVISION OFFICERS ARE OUT DOING
SIMILAR INSPECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE NAVY
ON A REGULAR BASIS. THE TRADITION OF HOLDING
OUR PEOPLE TO HIGH STANDARDS IN THE NAVY
IS ALIVE AND WELL STEVENS PRESENTED A
CERTIFICATE AND COIN TO MEMBERS OF THE CEREMONIAL
GUARD WHO PASSED THE INSPECTION WITH
NO DISCREPANCIES. THERE WERE NO FAILURES,
AND FIFTEEN OF THE INSPECTED SAILORS
WERE FLAWLESS. MCPON HOPES TO MAKE THIS
INSPECTION AN ANNUAL EVENT THAT CONTINUES EVEN
AFTER HE LEAVES OFFICE.
