ABSTRACT
This article presents comments of Bernard Michael Burawski, a retired chief yeoman of the U.S. Navy on an article concerning current chief petty officer (CPO) initiation process in the U.S. Navy, previously published in the journal. After 25 years of active duty in August 2003, he had seen the CPO esprit de corps vanish. Most of today's senior enlisted personnel only are interested in political gamesmanship with a goal of getting promoted to the next higher pay grade. The CPO initiation is a thing of the past and was sacrificed as a result of political correctness and the failure of the CPO community to fight the tide of the Navy's lack of trust in their abilities to manage a meaningful initiation.
