SUBJ/CNO GUIDANCE FOR 2009// 


GENTEXT/REMARKS//1.  I HAVE RELEASED MY GUIDANCE FOR 2009 AND POSTED IT 
ONLINE AT WWW.NAVY.MIL.
2.  IT REAFFIRMS THE VISION, MISSION, GUIDING PRINCIPLES, FOCUS AREAS, 
AND 18 INTENTIONS ARTICULATED IN MY PREVIOUS GUIDANCE.  IT IDENTIFIES 
KEY MEASURES I WILL USE TO ASSESS PROGRESS TOWARD ACCOMPLISHING MY 
INTENTIONS.  INCLUDED IN THIS YEAR?S GUIDANCE ARE SOME OF OUR 
ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN EXECUTING THE MARITIME STRATEGY OVER THE PAST YEAR; 
IT WAS WRITTEN WITH OUR COMMANDERS, SAILORS, AND CIVILIANS IN MIND.
3.  THE INITIATIVE AND DISCIPLINE THEY DEMONSTRATE REPRESENTS THE 
DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS AND ENDURING VALUES THAT WE HOLD DEAR.  
TODAY WE PRESERVE THE ACTIONS, THE COMPETENCE, AND PROFESSIONAL 
COMMITMENT OF THOSE WHO HAVE WRITTEN OUR STORIED HISTORY WITH THE 
PUBLICATION OF NAVY ETHOS, WHICH CODIFIES IN PRINT AND BRINGS TO LIFE A 
SET OF BELIEFS, VALUES, AND EXPECTATIONS FOR THOSE WHO SERVE IN THE 
UNITED STATES NAVY (ACTIVE AND RESERVE SAILORS AND NAVY CIVILIANS, 
REGARDLESS OF UNIT, COMMAND OR COMMUNITY). 
4.  MY INTENTIONS BUILD UPON THEIR ENERGY AND ALIGN EFFORTS AT ALL 
LEVELS TO ENSURE OUR NAVY IS WELL POSITIONED TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE TO 
PREVENT CONFLICT AND WIN OUR NATION?S WARS.  
5.  AS YOU READ MY GUIDANCE, CELEBRATE OUR ACHIEVEMENTS. DISCUSS MY 
GUIDANCE WITH YOUR SHIPMATES. GO FORWARD WITH THE INNOVATION, CONFIDENT 
RISK-TAKING, AND CULTURE OF COMMAND THAT MAKE OUR NAVY THE WORLD?S 
FINEST.
6.  WE ARE ON THE RIGHT COURSE TO SEIZE THE MANY OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD. 
YOUR WORK AFLOAT AND ASHORE MAKES ME PROUD TO LEAD OUR NAVY. 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATED SERVICE AND FOR THE STEADFAST SUPPORT OF 
YOUR FAMILIES.
7.  RELEASED BY ADMIRAL G. ROUGHEAD, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.//
