WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The chief of naval operations (CNO) released a video statement expressing the Navy's guidance on personal conduct during the repeal process of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' (DADT) policy Feb 4.

In the video, CNO discussed the Navy's process of implementing the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

"It is important for our Sailors to understand what this change means to them, their families, and our Navy," he said.

CNO said the Navy will continue to maintain its high level of professionalism and reinforce the high standard of conduct in the Navy.

"Leadership, professionalism and respect are the basis for executing this change in the law," said Roughead.
