CPO Selectee Letter

Posted in Personal Awards

Eddie L. Knight, FORCM, USN Navy Recruiting Command

“As one of the Nation’s finest, you undertook the most severe task one can be called upon to perform. Because you demonstrated the fortitude, resourcefulness and calm judgment necessary to carry out that task, we now look to you for leadership and example to further exalting our country in peace.” Harry S. Truman

I want to take a moment to congratulate you on your selection to Chief Petty Officer. You should be extremely proud and never forget this memorable day. It is a day that many seek to have in their life, but it only happens for 7% of our entire enlisted force. A truly significant achievement.

Your deckplate leadership, guidance, and direction has made a difference and paid off with our Navy recognizing your contributions and promoting you to Chief Petty Officer.

Thanks for all that you do and continue to lead our Sailors, for the sake of our Navy and our Nation.
