Statement Regarding All-Hands Call on USS George Washington

25 April 2022
As the senior enlisted leader in the Navy, it is my responsibility to visit the Fleet and hear from Sailors, who may be struggling or are facing personal issues that they need an advocate for.

I do this by engaging in open and honest dialogue. My heart is with the Sailors on the USS George Washington, who are hurting from loss. During my visit to the ship, I wanted to learn about the difficulties our Sailors are facing - familiar to me from similar situations during my tours - and to understand their concerns.  I heard the crew that day, and far more Sailors before and since then; I am in ongoing discussions with our senior Navy leaders to share these concerns, and to ensure they are aware of the issues and their impacts on our Sailors.
