Greenert's first words to sailors


The new chief of naval operations, Adm. Jon Greenert, wasted no time in addressing sailors. Appearing in a YouTube video posted right after he relieved Adm. Gary Roughead of command, the new CNO laid out a few principles of his leadership:

* Warfighting first. “That’s our craft. We’ve got to be good at it.”

* Operate forward. Sailors are best when they’re all over the world.

* Readiness. It’s always important.

* Bring innovation, diversity and dedication — it’s what makes the fleet sharp.
