MCPON Pays Visit to USS Gridley

Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens visited the Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Gridley (DDG 101) July 17 during a four-day trip to the Navy Region Southwest.

 

During an all-hands call with Sailors aboard Gridley, Stevens spoke about budget changes, Navy-wide morale, and the return of the Navy ball caps. He also held a question and answer session to receive feedback from the Sailors.

While in San Diego, Stevens not only visited Gridley, he also spent time on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), the San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS Green Bay (LPD 20) and he made a trip to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton to visit with Sailors and Marines.

The MCPON serves as the senior enlisted leader of the Navy and as the advisor to the chief of naval operations and to the chief of naval personnel in matters dealing with enlisted personnel and their families.
