In the tradition of The Bluejacket's Manual, this new guide serves as "mentor" to the U.S. Navy's Chief Petty Officers and "gouge" to those who aspire to be CPOs. It is the result of an extensive review process by a select board of CPOs, including those assigned to the Senior Enlisted Academy in Newport, Rhode Island. The book provides extensive guidance in the four major skills areas deemed essential for today's successful CPO: leading, communicating, developing, and supporting. Among the sixteen useful chapters are "The Moral Compass," "Written Communications," and "Advancement and Professional Development," and there is specific guidance in topics unique to being a chief, including the conduct of CPO initiations, living in the Chief's Mess, and wearing khakis. Both textbook and reference work, the guide is mandatory reading for all E-6s and above.

Whenever sailors are confronted with 'unsolvable' problems--be it a fouled anchor or paint that won't dry--they often throw up their hands and exclaim, 'We'd better ask the Chief.' That refrain, heard for generations throughout the Navy, is the theme for Jack Leahy's newest book. Written at sea, his book provides a compelling picture of the Chief Petty Officer's community in the U.S. Navy. As a guest of the Chief Petty Officer's mess aboard USS George Washington during Operation Enduring Freedom, Leahy was granted complete and unfettered access to all areas of the massive carrier and the other ships in her battle group. He interviewed nearly one hundred Navy Chiefs from the aviation, surface, submarine, and special warfare communities and recounts their stories of daily life at sea. In doing so, he presents the true backbone of the modern Navy: the wisdom, character, and dignity of the Chief Petty Officer's community. This book of contemporaneous oral history follows the format that proved so successful with Leahy's earlier book on Navy boot camp. Color photographs help bring the story to life.

Military ways are quite enigmatic, resulting in an alien world where acronyms often replace words and where “1330” is a time of day. Add to that, the Navy is not only military, it is nautical, which means that centuries of sea-going terminology and practices are added to the confusion. While the young men and women who sign on to become Sailors in the United States Navy receive extensive indoctrination and training, their parents do not. As their sons and daughters are becoming uniformed, the parents soon find themselves rapidly becoming uninformed. This book serves as the antidote to that debilitating disease of “uninformity.” In these pages parents will find many of the mysteries of the Navy explained. It is both a translation guide—helping parents to understand the many new terms they will be hearing—and also a cultural guide, an explanation of their son’s or daughter’s chosen new world that includes high standards and a level of dedication not found in most walks of life. Alongside chapters covering uniforms, ranks, ships, and aircraft, parents will find explanations and guidance as to what to expect when their child first joins the Navy, the many benefits their Sailor will enjoy, and what parents should bring and do when visiting their Sailors in their new and somewhat alien world. Derived from another Naval Institute Press book by the same author, The Citizen’s Guide to the U.S. Navy, this informative book is a highly accessible guide that explains the strange ways of the Navy in terms that non-Sailors can understand. In nine short chapters, the author reveals such things as the many titles that military people have, the various alphanumeric designations that military personnel use to identify and distinguish themselves, the organization of the Navy and the Department of Defense, the origins and practices of such things as saluting, flag etiquette, side boys, and odd language (such as “aye-aye”), and an explanation of the many missions of the Navy. Also included is a primer on the various ships and aircraft that make up today’s fleet, a guide to “reading” a uniform, and the demystification of such things as the phonetic alphabet and military time. Designed to be an easy read for those who want the whole story, The Parent’s Guide to the Navy is also a useful reference work, easily “navigated” to find needed information. While parents need not be experts on the Navy, there is a middle ground that this book serves by providing a readable, edifying, and often entertaining explanation of this important but sometimes mysterious branch of the U.S. armed forces.

Almost as essential to a successful bridge watch as a helm, this guide has long been a primary source of information for standing a taut, safe, and efficient watch. The new edition has been updated for the Navy of the twenty-first century, reflecting the need for increased security, the appropriate role of automation in navigation, and the extensive integration of computers into virtually every phase of watchstanding. While these new elements give this revised edition a futuristic feel, the timeless basics are reassuringly still there. New figures and appendixes reveal the evolving nature of today's Navy and the wonders of supportive technology, yet proper development of the human element remains paramount in this newest version of a longstanding classic. Admiral Stavridis and Captain Girrier have made the essential guide a worthy companion to their Division Officer's Guide, and they have ensured that this latest addition to the Blue & Gold Professional Library meets the exacting standards of that important series. Safe navigation, standard commands, honors and ceremonies, communications, weather, and practical advice on the keeping of a deck log are among the many subjects covered in this comprehensive book. Practical checklists and samples help watchstanders meet the demands of challenging evolutions such as getting underway, entering port, and night steaming. Whether the watch is on the bridge, on the quarterdeck, or in the combat information center, the prudent watchstander will do well to adhere to the advice of a famous ad campaign: "Don't leave home without it."

J. F. Leahy chronicles the transition of eighty-one men and women from civilians to sailors at the U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Illinois. Granted unlimited and unprecedented access to the recruits during the fall of 2000, his examination of the unique American institution - popularly known as boot camp - offers a look into the hearts and minds of a group of young people who are a cross section of the nation. The work offers a unique view into the training experience of all recruits and sheds light on the differences between those entering the military services and the society they serve.

First published in 1934, this book has enjoyed a reputation both as an authoritative guide to conduct in a contemporary maritime setting and as a historical reference on naval lore and traditions going back to the early days of sail. Updated to cover all the sea services, this new edition fully reflects today's diverse force while exploring the maritime history of the United States and its symbols, including the flag and naval uniforms and insignia. A new chapter on naval ceremonies offers more details than ever on such events as award presentations and changes of command. The popular dining-in and dining-out ceremonies are the subject of an entire chapter that explains their origins and evolution and tells how to plan and execute such events. In examining the derivation of traditions and customs of the sea services, the book pays greater attention than before to the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard. A final chapter discusses the sources of nautical words and naval expressions.
