"We are competing with a global demand for personnel in order to retain our best, brightest, and most talented members - the same pool who will one day rise to senior leadership - and we cannot afford to simply let them walk away... The Navy, unlike its private sector counterparts, cannot hire senior leaders from outside the service -- we promote from within. "

   Our Open Letter       

        This is a non-official survey being conducted by active duty members of the U.S. Navy, but in their personal capacity and during their off-duty time.  A first of its kind survey -- conducted outside of official U.S. Navy channels -- the survey results will provide senior uniformed and civilian leadership with a snapshot of how sailors, both officer and enlisted, perceive their experience while serving the Navy and the nation.  Your participation and honest responses will help inform our senior leadership, Congress, and the American public about our perceptions regarding quality of service -- such as quality of life, quality of work, and quality of leadership -- and retention.  Thank you in advance for your time, as the survey is estimated to take 10-15 minutes to complete.
