WASHINGTON (NNS) -- In a podcast released June 26, the chief of Naval Personnel answered questions asked by Sailors during All Hands Calls held around the fleet.
Vice Adm. Mark Ferguson, chief of Naval Personnel, reinforces that people remain a priority to Navy leadership as evidenced by Navy's offering of a highly competitive benefits package, in addition to the creation of policies and programs that encourage a life-work integration.
Healthcare, education and training, annual pay increases, and more than 60 incentive pays are a few of the benefits discussed in the podcast.
"It is a great time to be in the Navy," said Ferguson. "We have terrific leaders, great benefits, and a great spirit on the deck plates. The Sailors performing extraordinary jobs are our most valuable asset and we will do everything in our power to support their quality of life."
The podcast also addresses the new Post-9/11 GI Bill.
