The Navy's Top Enlisted Sailor Is Targeting Hazing to Combat Leadership Problems

Recommended Posts

The Navy's top enlisted sailor -- the master chief petty officer of the Navy (MCPON) -- has set his sights on making changes to one of the most closely held traditions of chief petty officer ranks: the initiation.

In an interview with Military.com at his Pentagon office Friday, James Honea, the 16th MCPON, explained that he wants to tackle "counterfeit behaviors" among his fellow chief petty officers -- collectively known as the Chief's Mess -- and among his hopes is that the induction of new chief petty officers becomes a far less onerous and time-consuming tradition.
