If I were still on active duty, this is what I'd suggest to the new CNO and his/her leadership team: 1.) Reinstitute quotas for the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal and the Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal so commanding officers can increase the value of those decorations. 2.) Eliminate meritorious advancement, i.e., CAP, turbo crow, etc., with the exception of battlefield/combat promotions. 3.) Eliminate the Sailor of the Year program and replace it with Unit of the Year, which would pit small commands versus small, shore versus shore and combatant versus combatant. 4.) Eliminate Task Force Uniform and the NWU Type I along with it and replace aqua camo with regular rip-stop camo or, God forbid, coveralls. Ready....set...go!!

Oh, and 5.) Eliminate the requirement for warfare pins. Separate the wheat from the chaff by seeing who really wants one as opposed to those who are just going through the motions.

YES!!! I loved having ESWS on my chest when I was an E4 and seeing senior people without it because they just didn't have the dedication.

My initial thought...

1) The NAM is a great medal but MAN does it make it hard when the requirements for the NAM are completely up to the CO and they vary so much.
2) No real comment on this one, I was CAPED to First Class LOL!!!
3) The Sailor of the Year Program doesn't bother me one bit. I like being able to guide and help my First Classes to achieve that recognition. I wouldn't do away with it but I would have it add maybe 50 points to the overall score for a command's "Unit of the Year" package.
4) NWUs at sea make ZERO sense to me and they are like wearing pajamas. COVERALLS!!! YES!!!

Or even multi-cam inasmuch as we're trying to be one big, happy family with the rest of DoD!
