"Your responsibilities and privileges do not appear in print. They have no official standing; they cannot be referred to by name, number nor file. They have existed for over 100 years, because Chiefs before you have freely accepted responsibility beyond the call of printed assignment. Their actions and their performance demanded the respect of their seniors as well as their juniors. It is required that you be the fountain of wisdom, the ambassador of good will, the authority in personal relations as well as in technical applications." - U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Creed

Please join me in wishing a Happy 131st Birthday to all our Chief Petty Officers!!
