Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy
I was extremely proud to have the opportunity through Facebook to communicate with Sailors, family members, and retirees yesterday.
The level of participation in the event provides me with great humility and reinforced that the Internet is a viable tool to use in order to help leverage communication with you, your families, and the American public. It was an event I will not soon forget and a first of what I hope to be several more engagements using the power of technology.
The level of questions received was on par with the best face-to-face all hands call. Please see a review below of the event as it unfolded.

Continue to trust and have confidence in each other to successfully carry out our missions and effectively support the CNO’s Sailing Directions and tenets of Warfighting First, Operate Forward, and Be Ready.
Continue to work hard, stay out of trouble, and be good and decent people. I’ll see you in the Fleet.
