Commander's Guiding Principles

To execute our mission well, we must truly understand our core requirements and execute a program that meets them. We need to be absolutely outstanding in the execution of our mission, lives, and resources in support of our national defense depending on us. We must execute with a sense of urgency, challenge status quo thinking, and break down barriers inhibiting progress.

We are known for our service to our nation, to the U.S. Navy, and to one another. 

We care about each other personally and professionally. Our success hinges on our personal and professional excellence, practicing civility in all we do. 

We are reliable, responsible stewards of the public's trust. The integrity of our core foundational capabilities - personnel management, training, security, safety, cyber resilience/security, financial/contract management, and Sailor programs, must be evident to everyone. 

We understand and apply Operational Risk Management in all we do. We need to stress safety and make smart decisions. we can not afford unacceptable, preventable loss. 

We maintain open communication - up and down the chain of command. Our command excels through teamwork and unity of purpose. Clear, concise and timely communication exists throughout the command in all functions and tasks. 

We embrace the Navy core values - Honor, Courage and Commitment. As an extension of that idea, we also embrace TRUST: transparency, respect, unity, selflessness, and teamwork. We focus on doing the right thing every time and do not let others violate rules. We understand that perception is in the public eye.
