September 18, 2017 - Rigged: Two master chiefs’ plot to fix E-9 advancements

Recommended Posts

September 18, 2017

In April in Millington, Tennessee, a cadre of master chiefs was wrapping up the E-9 selection board, an annual rite when the fleet’s most respected sailors convene behind closed doors to select a new crop of senior enlisted members to lead the chiefs mess.

But just as the list of new master chiefs was being finalized, top Navy officials received a stunning email from an anonymous whistleblower. The explosive allegations claimed that at least two of the board-sitting master chiefs had conspired to violate board rules and lobby outside the Navy’s traditional selection process to advance their preferred senior chief. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2017/09/18/rigging-the-e-9-board/
