Old Navy Versus New Navy

Chief of Naval Operations Admiral George Anderson said, "The Navy has both a tradition and a future--and we look with pride and confidence in both directions," (Anderson, 1961). If you ask any new Navy person in San Diego if they are proud to serve, majority of the Navy will probably say no or they do not know. If you ask a Navy person a decade ago, majority would probably say yes. The purpose of this essay is to compare and contrast the difference between the old Navy a decade ago and the new Navy today.
Military Bearing
The most noticeable difference between the old Navy a decade ago and the new Navy today is military bearing. Most non-military people know from movies and media to be very strict. If you look at Navy personnel in uniform today and see how they act, most non-military people would think that this is not the Navy and they are no different from any other civilian. Today, it is a norm that you see subordinates talking badly back at their superiors and not get in trouble for it. A decade ago, no subordinate would even think of talking badly back at his or her superiors. If one did, one would receive punishment, extra duty, cleaning duties, or even captain’s mast, which can lead to a decrease in rank.
Work Ability
The second difference between the old Navy a decade ago and the new Navy today is work ability. When a person joins the military and chooses a job, he or she expects to receive schooling for his or her particular job. Not the Navy today, when a person joins, he or she will receive short training, not particularly tailored to his or her job, but a training to learn basic firefighting. Where the old Navy, when a person joins, he or she can pick any type of schooling within tailored to…...

...Jathan Prince 3/31/11 8 Navy Jathan Prince 3/31/11 8 Navy Essay 5 A “Pet Peeve,” is something that DRIVES YOU CRAZY! I know I have some Pet Peeves of my own, For example: One “Pet Peeve” I have is when my 3 year old little brother, Levi, comes in my room, and thrashes it! Levi leaves his toys EVERWHERE, which causes me to step and trip all over them. This definitely DRIVES ME CRAZY! Another “Pet Peeve” I have, is when I’m playing video games with my friend and my little brother comes in my room and stands in front of the TV. I often ask him to “sit down please.” He just says, “No.” And continues to stand there. It seems as though he is interested in what I am doing, but really, I think he may be trying to DRIVE ME CRAZY! A literal “PET Peeve” I have is when I’m busy doing anything that requires laying or sitting down, my cat “Baby,” Demands my attention. She likes to be petted, cuddled, scratched, fed, or anything that will redirect my focus onto her. For example: right now I am trying to get my homework done, and here she is, right in my face….“Meow?” (Ok, it is pretty cute.) Lastly, one of my previous “Pet Peeves,” (that doesn’t effect me that much anymore.) was timing. I could not stand it, if I was late anywhere! Whether the appointment was important or not, I did not want to be late to it! This is not to say I disregard the value of time or ignore the responsibility of being to school on time, for example. It simply means if my mom says we will go get ice......

Organizational Behavior Navy

...Tami Halstead Organizational Behavior January 11, 2013 Part I  Chapter 4 Read Why did Navy leaders allow offensive videos to be shown on the USS Enterprise?  Answer the following question: Does Capt. Honor’s behavior fit your schema for an effective leader? Explain The total length of your answer should be greater than 400 words but no more than 600 words After reading this story about Mr. Owens Paul Honors, Jr., I actually remembered hearing about this on the news. Owen Paul Honors, Jr. definitely made some mistakes with this type of actions. It is really hard to judge him based solely on this mistake or lack of better judgment. We are all human and we all make mistakes, to what level of mistake we make determines the discipline. This one of course because it hit the news, he had to be reprimanded in order to show the integrity with the United States Military. I think with Mr. Honors having the support of 100% of the Enterprise workers says a lot for this gentleman. His work record had demonstrated that he knew how to command a ship and had respect amongst his fellow comrades and from the people underneath him. As far as my thoughts on his direct behavior with this certain incident, well it was pretty immature on his part and he set himself up for major discipline and loss of respect. This subject is a very sore subject among the service men and women and I feel that when the ruling came down from President Obama, it probably sent him over the edge and...

Solcom 3 U.S Navy Seals

... an enemy blood sprays from bullet hit. Characters animate well when they are moving and shooting. The game is also better at being able to use the scopes to zoom in on distant targets than previous SOCOM games. The game also has a good balance of game videos and briefings. I think both of these computer controlled aspects of the game allow for a better story and battle portrayal. One of the only complaints that I would have about the campaign is that it is not very long. Although there are only a few levels, the game offers 5 different difficulty levels, which can change how a level is played. The third person perspective makes it more difficult than first person shooters to aim at enemy targets. However, aiming becomes easier when you aim down the scope of the gun because it becomes more like a first person point of view. The third person perspective also allows you to see the environment around you better than first person shooters. (SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs, 2005). The plot of the campaign revolves around Specter, the team leader in the U.S. Navy Seals. There are 12 single player missions, with new maps that are up to five times as large as past maps. In the North Africa campaign, Specter’s “Fireteam” consists of "Jester, Killjoy, and Simple". The SEAL team battles the North African Patriotic Front (NAPF) headed by General Mahmood. The NAPF launches an offensive and the SEALs are able to locate and capture Mahmood successfully ("SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy Seals...

Changes in the Navy

...Changes in The Navy The United States Navy is the best navy in the world hands-down. It is the largest navy in the world, with a battle fleet tonnage that is greater than that of the next 13 largest navies combined. The Navy has 318,406 personnel on active duty and 108,718 in the Navy Reserve. It operates 288 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft. With all of those people, ships, and aircraft, its hard to listen to everyone and be able to make the changes that sailors want. The United States Navy is a great navy, but it is not without flaws. I have been in the Navy for about four years, and through out the years I have seen many things that I would like to change. If I had the power or authority to make changes in the navy, the first thing I would do would be to do away with "PTS", or "Perform to Serve". This was a system carried out by the Navy to cut back on its manning, in other words, kick people out to cut down in size. Thousands of sailors were affected by "PTS", including some of my closest friends. I knew people who had been in the Navy for ten or more years and had planned on making it a career and then eventually retire, they were kicked out simply for that fact that the Navy had too many people in its ranks. Another change I would make, would be to extend shore duties. Currently for sailors in my field of work, we have a Sea/Shore rotation of 4:2 years. What this means is that for every four years a...

The technology used electronically is mainly for classified and top secret mission. The technology used is tested before the Navy contracts the company or buys the equipment for use. Some of the technology is tested for two or three years before the Navy acquires it 100%. Sometimes the technology used after testing is out of date, however the Navy will work with the contractor with updates required for system usage to be up-to-date. This technology is used in a secure building, secure phone lines, and Humvee’s or MRAPS required for daily missions.

Navy Dolphins

...Brandon Farrow Mrs. Cox English 1 11/11/13 Navy Dolphins Dolphins are smart and amazing creatures. Scientists say they might almost be smarter than humans; they adapt really quick to their environment. The Navy is one branch of the United States armed forces that conducts military operations at sea. The Navy has programs with animals to help them protect the nation. The Navy and dolphins work together to control warfare in the water by using their sonar to track underwater mines and to keep citizens safe. These next paragraphs will explain how the dolphins and navy work together.   One of the first dolphins used by the Navy was Tuffy. “Tuf Goy [Tuffy] joined the marine mammal program at Point Mugu in May 1964. By the end of September of 1964, Tuffy was retrieving a ring from the bottom of the lagoon at a depth of 200 feet” (Wood, 1973). In July of 1965, Tuffy was asked to participate in the Sealab II project with his main job being to help with the rescuing of a lost diver. Tuffy had a secondary job also of “carrying small objects-tools, for example-from the surface down to aquanauts working outside the habitat.” (Wood, 1973) “Tuffy repeatedly dove 200 feet to the Sea Lab II installation, carrying mail and tools to navy personal. To prepare for underwater tasks, Tuffy trained for six weeks and “learned to respond to a noise buzzer for the tests” (Presnall, 2002,) Judith Presnall’s book Navy Dolphins (2002), gives a visual image of Tuffy in training for rescuing...

Supply in the Navy

...Supply in the US Navy I work for one of the largest companies in the world. This company is spread out throughout the United States, and even has bases overseas. The company that I’m referring to is the US Navy. Each command within this company has their own mission and requires different things to execute their mission. Spending millions on a weekly basis is very common within this organization. Suppliers have to be ready to ship parts needed out at all times, and be very flexible. The Us Navy spends most of its money on building new ships, supplies for ships, ammunition, and fuel. Without these supplies, they wouldn’t be able to conduct missions around world. I work in a division referred to as Dockmasters. The job of a Dockmaster is to safely dock and undock ships. Daily, I’m seeing twenty to thirty truckloads of supplies being brought to ships before they deploy for a span of nine to ten months. Over the last year, America has seen large cuts in the area of our defense referred to as Sequestration, but the Navy is still spending lots of money to execute. For example, “the request for the Department of Defense (DoD) includes $525.4 billion in discretionary budget authority to fund base defense programs and $88.5 billion to support Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO), primarily in Afghanistan. The discretionary budget, $155.9 billion represents the Department of the Navy's budget request. This is a decrease of $1.4 billion from last year's baseline appropriation...

Navy Seals

... wile and meaningful for you and others. When setting a goal you always need to plan ahead and prepare for a new situation that has not yet been identified yet. To complete this the Seal organization goes beyond it’s training to help them learn first-aid, to training them how to dive and sink terrorist’s ships that haven’t been found yet. They continually position themselves so that incase of an emergency they can react and have a backup plan. To accomplish this, the Navy Seals embrace several principles of change that are likely to greatly affect the battlefield they are fighting on. They rely on chaos, technological advancements, and anticipation and will this they create foolproof strategies. Navy Seals solve this through practice. Current students scream out when there is an ambush, they scream and yell in the morning before getting wet and sandy, they scream out that missiles are inbound, they scream out for all of the soldiers to get their weapons on line at once during a firefight. This is called practical application, this technique continues throughout all of the training. Why you may ask? Because getting your feet wet is the best way to learn how to swim. They tech you in class training in dive physics is soon followed by construction of a depth profile that you’ll swim that night. Medical instruction is followed by sticking an IV needle in your teammate’s vein to practice giving him plasma. A class on shooting tactics is followed by long hours on the range.......

The Navy of the Civil War

... an English vessel infuriated the British, but an apologetic letter from the US saved the Union from another war with Britain.      As resources became available, the Union set into action plans to seize bases along the Confederate coastline. The first important operation was the taking of Port Royal on the Carolina coastline. The Union sent an armada of ships exerting a five-to-one advantage in gun power over the Confederates. Due to a loss of boats in a storm, the operation was changed from an amphibious assault to a naval operation. Union vessels were able to flank Fort Walker and smother her defenses in their fire. After the abandonment of Fort Walker, the weaker Fort Beauregard was abandoned as well.      By far, the most famous naval battle of the Civil War was that between the Merrimack and the Monitor. This battle has been declared as one of the greatest one-on-one naval gun battles in history.      The Merrimack was burned and sunk by the Union when the Norfolk Navy Yard was abandoned. Since the South was at a loss for the resources to build new ships, they took to rebuilding old hulls into ironclad vessels, which included the Merrimack. The ship was converted using the limited Confederated iron into an eleven gun blockade-destroyer, mounting an iron ram. The Merrimack was rechristened as the CSS Virginia and will be referred to by that name for the rest of this paper.      The Virginia was hoped to break the Union blockade at Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Us Navy Submarines

...US Navy Submarines Today I want to tell you about US Navy submarines. My first question when thinking about submarines was, “why are they painted black”? The answer is they are painted black to help them hide while they are doing their jobs. Black has been proven to be the best color for hiding in the ocean. I found it interesting that submarines can go faster than 25 knots under water, which is about 29 miles per hour. The actual depth they can go to is classified, but they can go to depths greater than 800 feet. Submarines are not equipped with windows to let the crew see outside under water. Next I started wondering about how big a submarine was. There are two classes of submarines that are each 33 feet wide. The Fast Attack Submarines (which are the ones my dad served on) are 362 feet long, which is a little bit longer than a football field. The other class, Ballistic Missile Submarines are 560 feet long. This is almost as long as 2 football fields, or a few feet longer than the Washington Monument. They both carry torpedoes, cruise missiles, and mines. Ballistic Missile Submarines also carry long range ballistic missiles. Considering the size of these vessels, and all the ammunition they carry, you can imagine that the crew must not be very large. Generally, the crew consists of 14 Officers, 18 Chief Petty Officers, and 109 enlisted men. Their living quarters are called “berthing areas” and are less than 15 square feet of space per man for sleeping and......

The Information Age in the Navy

...Written Assignment #1 Email enables Sailors to send messages to anyone or any specific group in the command. My Chief, who is my supervisor, receives emails with instructions from her superiors. My Chief then informs me of the instruction by forwarding that e-mail or sending me an e-mail with tasks to execute. E-mails also allows collaboration between departments of the command to be done fast and effectively. Simply pull up names from other departments using a global access list and send the message. Collaboration between departments are important to mission readiness because it allows them to access resources that they would not otherwise have without their help. Cellphones allows information and messages to be sent quickly. Telephone repeaters installed throughout the ship allows cellphones to have reception. Quick messages are vital to accomplish tasks in the Navy. Last minute important information might come up that would be important for us to know. For example, if I am given an urgent task to complete and need help, I would immediately text or call one or more of my shipmates. Microsoft Excel tracks important data in a clear and organized way. Spreadsheets are needed to track important information such as budgets, project deadlines, training dates, and command climate surveys. For example, I am my department’s tracker of material issues in our spaces. I have a spreadsheet for each division which lists the date the issue was submitted, the space...
