Making Chief Petty Officers

I am reading Bill Randall’s article on Navy Chiefs titled: U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer initiation ill-advisedly abolished. And I can’t help but read all the comments. Some I agree with, others not so much. I like tradition when it advances the mission and makes our Sailors better at the job. As for hazing, it has no place in the Navy. And I don’t have an opinion on CPO 365, yet. I was, however, worried when I heard Chief’s initiation (transition) went away. We shall see what effect this has on our senior enlisted.
