2.  FLTCM STEVENS IS EMINENTLY QUALIFIED TO SERVE AS THE 13TH MCPON OF OUR 
GREAT NAVY.  HE WAS SELECTED FROM A DISTINGUISHED GROUP OF SENIOR FLAG-LEVEL 
CMCS, ALL OF WHOM TRULY PERSONIFY THE VIRTUES AND HIGH STANDARDS WE DEMAND 
FROM NAVY LEADERSHIP.  CURRENTLY ASSIGNED AS FLEET MASTER CHIEF OF U.S. FLEET
