The CMC of the USN posted on FB asking if you could tell a future Chief Petty Officer something what would it be. He asked due to the incoming new CPO. So here is a letter to them.
Dear New Chief Petty Officers;
You are about to embark on a new journey one that you’ve worked hard on. And I commend you. But I’d like to take this opportunity to talk to you about a subject that is dear to me.
Take a look at your division and point to the rapest. Point to anyone who at any time has violated someone else sexually. Point to anyone who has made someone else feel violated sexually.
Point your finger!!!
Do you see those three fingers pointing at you back?
After you are pinned as a new Chief I want you to go to your Division and talk about sexual assault. Take a stand and say you are against it. That your division represents a part of you, and extention of you, and you will not tolerate sexual assault.
If you see an assault occurring stop it. I don’t care how high ranking they are. Stop it.
Sexual assault has become a big problem in the United States. And you can help stop it.
I urge anyone reading this to help stop sexual assault.
Congratulations on your promotion. But never forget about what you can do to prevent this from happening
