PATUXENT RIVER, Md.—The Navy has released the names of the roughly 4,200 first class petty officers Navywide who have been selected for chief petty officer. The announcement launches CPO 365 Phase Two, as the CPO selects receive training for their future responsibilities and traditions of the chief’s mess.

In the Navy, promotion to the rank of chief requires a Sailor to take on the dual role of technical expert and designated leader. The title of “The Chief” carries with it a tradition of knowledge, teamwork and the ability to take charge that began when the Navy first created the rank on April 1, 1893.
