MCPON Discusses Navy’s Review of Rating Titles

From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

This week, we talked to Master Chief Petty Office of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens about the Navy’s review of rating titles. The review is designed to make rating titles more inclusive and relevant to the needs of today’s Navy. MCPON discusses the importance of the review, his plan for implementation and how he will use the recommendations of Sailors to determine the best direction for the changes.

“It doesn’t always have to be about the ‘man’ or ‘men’ portion of the title change; It can be a title change because it makes more sense.”

“I’m confident, not because of anything I’m going to do, but because of the brilliance of our Sailors out there… Our Sailors are going to deliver to us what I believe to be remarkable input and recommendations.”
