USS Bunker Hill, USS Milius Host MCPON

US Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike Stevens spoke with more than 1000 Sailors during all-hands calls and toured the guided-missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill (CG 52) and the guided-missile destroyer USS Milius (DDG 69) as part of his two-week trip to Navy Region Southwest.

MCPON started the call with a brief survey of the crowd’s opinion of the Navy’s overall morale. He asked the audience if they felt morale is either poor, good, good high, excellent, or outstanding.

Stevens said:

Overall, the majority of you feel that morale is good, to good high.

Being here allows me the opportunity to hear from you about ways we can improve morale throughout the fleet.

MCPON fielded questions from the audience and took time at the end for individual photos with the Sailors.

After the call, MCPON toured two ships on the waterfront where he met with command leadership, chief petty officer messes and walked the deckplates to speak with Sailors.
