Navy to fill shortage of chiefs at sea by shifting away from shore billets

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


The Navy announced Monday it will begin shifting more than 1,100 senior enlisted sailors from certain shore billets to fill about 3,000 “gaps” in operations at sea.

“Our number-one priority is to keep the Fleet properly manned," Vice Adm. Robert Burke, chief of Naval Personnel, said in a statement. “We are aggressively using all force-shaping levers to do just that.” https://www.stripes.com/news/us/navy-to-fill-shortage-of-chiefs-at-sea-by-shifting-away-from-shore-billets-1.481867#.WYm0UIjyuUk
